Such good food, great service and amazing cocktails. We had a couple of drinks, the nachos and enchildas, it all came out quick even though the place was busy, and it was delicious. Will be going back.

Such a funky place! Filled up quickly so get in early. We sat upstairs and our service was really hospitable and prompt. Great Sangria! And the food came out quicker than expected in such a busy place and the flavours did not disappoint! Try the chicken nachos 👌🏽

Four of us dined at this really busy restaurant on Friday night. We had a short wait for a table but it was well worth it. Our meals were served super quick and they were all amazing. It is a very busy restaurant however and not the sort of place you feel like you can sit back and relax but... More

The food here is authentic Mexican. It's in the heart of Byron so nice to have a drink and some food and people watch. The staff are very quick as is the food in arriving. Would recommend to relax and take in the feel of Byron

Such a busy restaurant with a great atmosphere. Lovely mojitos accompanied our fried squid entree and snapper tacos. Really enjoyed the experience - so much so that we are heading back for happy hour tonight!

Miss Margarita has great atmosphere, both downstairs and upstairs, although the air conditioning upstairs made it a little chillier than we needed it to be on a balmy September night. The food was great, staff were friendly - all made the wait for a table (you cannot book a table at Miss Margarita) very worthwhile.

Great mex food restaurant. Very busy. Not cheap. perfect location but small. Kitchen is fast, staff a little harried. Mostly worth it.
