Food was ok, but nothing special. However, just took so long. Made the mistake of ordering 1 dessert and that added half an hour to our visit. Nowhere near enough staff to cope with the number of customers. Very poor that they had no draft beer at all. Won't rush back.

Love the choice and variety available, extremely friendly we love Bart he is so nice and helpful. Don’t have to wait too long for food just right. Have made special requests and it was done no problem without fuss, just a really nice place to eat. Also with our cineworld card we get discount as well - bonus!

When we arrived we were seated straight away, but that's about as good as it gets.
We ordered 2 Pepsi's which didn't arrive for 20 minutes. We were sat right beside the kitchen, so we could see all of the food being prepared and waiting to be taken to tables; I ordered the chicken tacos which were left sitting on the counter for 15 minutes while the fajitas were being made (ridiculous, food should be prepared and cooked so that the whole table's order is ready at the same time) - it sat for so long under the heat lamp that the soured cream on top had hardened! They were small with hardly any filling inside and I was still hungry afterwards. My partner ordered the Ultimate Fajitas (chicken, pulled pork and steak) - the waiter asked how he would like his steak cooked to which he said medium, but it came out over-cooked and dry as a bone and the dips provided were pathetic; an absolute rip-off at £18. We had to walk up to the kitchen ourselves to get cutlery as we were never given any, even when our food was brought over to us, and we couldn't get any waiter's attention to ask.
If you want good quality Mexican food with an atmosphere, go to Topolobamba just around the corner on Lothian Road. The prices are similar and both the food and service are of a much higher standard.

When walking in my boyfriend and I waited about 10/15 minutes before anyone even acknowledged us. I would understand if the staff were busy but they were just not bothered at all looked at us and just continued talking at the bar. Didn’t feel welcoming at all! The service was very slow and our waiter cared more about talking to the other staff than serving us. We waited ages in between courses, when finishing our meal we also had to go up to the waiter to pay as he was standing about and wouldn’t have approached us and we would have been sitting all night waiting on him coming over to our table. The food was amazing as always, it’s a real shame as the staff and service really let’s the place down.

The place looks very good. The service was quit fast, the waiter took in consideration that we have a movie booked and we got the food in 5-10 minutes. We ordered the share plate , ultimate sharer but I only liked the peppers, the onion rings and crusted chicken were terrible , like they were fried in 1 week used oil. The corn had no taste, the nachos were soft instead of crunchy. I told the waiter , he apologised like 5 times and with the managers approval we got 50% discount for the total bill. I left the restaurant hungry.
