Love this quirky Mexican joint. Bright & colorful yet cosy & inviting. There is 2 al fresco seating, front by the street & at the back (my pick). Indoor is pretty big as well with low and high tables. Service is friendly & pretty quick. Pay at the counter & then they bring it to you. Gets busy during peak hours. Prices a bit on the high side.

We had 3 types of tacos (fish, pork & chicken). The fish taco was out of this world. We also had the chicken quesadilla (nice jalapeno aioli with thin & crisp house made tortilla) & chicken burrito (nothing special). Wash it all done with locally brewed Sir Veza beers. Both the Pale Ale & Lager was nice.

A good spot. Recommended for casual meet ups, a date or just watching the world go by.

Novel way to present a menu. Burritos, tacos, chips, nachos, beer and wine. Great music and fast service. These operators have got their act together. Evident by the many customers attending the venue. Food is most delicious and appetising. I read the reviews to get some ideas. Seafood burrito and prawn taco for me tonight.

The grub here is brilliant - went with friends - had 3 shared Starters before getting into my Chicken Quesadilla; which was superb! The service was really efficient and the staff very friendly. Can't think of a better Mexican restaurant that I have been to - was great on all fronts!

Quick Halloween dinner

Packed and got a table

Food is delicious - never bad

Almost slightly over the pulled beef - just call is something else it's getting a little dated

Toilet clean

In and out very quick

The place just works and the staff are great

We were going to a show after dinner and this fitted the bill perfectly. We arrived on a Saturday night to a very busy restaurant. The staff were very friendly on arrival and found us a table quickly and explained things well. The place has busy and buzzing vibe. There is table service for the food but you order and pay at the counter. The menu is simple and not too complicated. We opted for the 2 person share menu to sample a variety. Corn chips, dips, fish taco, charred corn, and quesadillas. Service was quick, food fresh and right tasty. Nice venue, it's a restaurant for sure but borderline upmarket fast food Mexican. Prices were reasonable for food. Alcohol is always expensive at licensed premises as expected. It suited us perfectly, we were in and out pretty quick. Probably not the place for a relaxed lingering dinner but worth a visit for sure.
