We visited the Mexican restaurant twice. We actually quite liked the magnificent room it was located in, although it was very acoustic (you could hear everyone's conversations), it could have done with some music to add atmosphere/ambience!

We thought the prawn and ceviche (forget the actual name on the menu) starter was very good, maybe a bit too big for a starter. If you find your food here a little bland, use the sauces that they bring to every table, they do perk up the flavour.

It's like they took one of the meeting rooms and turned it into a restaurant. Very high ceilings, little ambiance. The mescal and appetizers were good and the entrees were excellent. Authentic Mexican cuisine and excellent service.

I don't think I have given anywhere a 1* rating before. This restaurant is cold and cavernous with no atmosphere whatsoever.

The food is diabolical, not in the least bit spicy and lacking in taste and texture. Much better Mexican food can be had elsewhere including the UK!
I left before finishing my meal, a first for me!

Don't waste a night of your holiday eating here.

The staff were polite and pleasant.

This restaurant was very good. I had the Lime Soup appetizer and it was delicious. The entrée I chose were the chicken tostadas and they too were wonderful. Our waiter was magnificent and when asked about tequila shots, he made sure we had several. Highly recommend!
