    Just some constructive feedback- food was lovely and service good but the restaurant felt and looked dirty and there was a strong odour from the toilets while seated at the table. Place needs a good deep clean and toilets need maintenance and care. Pity as love the menu and food but won’t eat with you again.

    Food was delicious. Would highly recommend the beef tacos. Staff were very friendly and kept refilling our drinks and checking up on us to see if we wanted anything else. We even got a courtesy new year’s shot at the end of the night. Will be visiting again!

    Really liked this place! Went on NYE and there was a great buzz in the place. There was a DJ playing music but wasn’t to loud. Both our starters and mains were great, really affordable and quick turnaround. All the servers were great. Would definitely go back !

    Went here for NYE meal, all drinks and food were so nice. We had the beef and chorizo tacos and shared some chilli fries, all were incredible and would definitely reorder. There was a DJ there which was a nice touch ahead of the evenings festivities.

    Enjoyed my food but was really in the mood for a nice craft beer. Sadly the beer selection was very poor, only Guinness-owned products.

    Never felt so uncomfortable in a restaurant before. My colleagues and I were having our work Christmas dinner at Juanitos. Our booking was for 6pm and from the minute we arrived, we had been told that they needed the table back by 7:45pm. This had been reiterated by other staff members after the first time it was mentioned too. This wasn't a great start to begin with, however we understood seeing as it was the 19th of December, and close to Christmas. At 7pm one of the staff members came down and told us that we had half an hour left. Again, putting urgency on our meal. At 7:15pm, another staff member (I think the manager) arrived down and told us that the next booking had arrived early and that they needed the table back so that they could put together the next groups table. Bear in mind, we had asked for a drinks menu before this and hadn't even given a response on whether we'd like to order a drink or not. Following this the staff were literally standing over the table with the card machine, not giving us a minute. This was completely unacceptable and so rude. We had spent a fairly large amount also, so it couldn't have been due to the lack of spend/ordering. We were also going to order drinks after this. It was such a shame as the place is stunning & the food is gorgeous, however I will definitely not be recommending it to anyone based on the service. They just view the place as a conveyor belt.

    Dumplings were gorgeous But the most over priced place we've been in Dublin in a while. 6.70euro for a beer !!! 9 euro for 4 dumplings Not a fancy restaurant at all, a diner feel with wooden chairs and tables. Wouldn't go back Service was good and staff were lovely but it doesn't beat the fact it was so over priced and genuinely not really a nice place to have date night

    We have been to this restaurant a couple of times and has always been a pleasant experience. However, this time I can’t say it was. We arrived ahead of booking time and we were seated. The restaurant was extremely quiet but we felt very rushed in placing the orders. The food arrived within 5 minutes and after the main course the waiter asked us did we want dessert. We asked could we have a few minutes to decide, considering we had already been rushed in ordering the food and she came back with the bill 2 mins later. Overall we sat at 4.35 and we were out of the restaurant at 5!!! Never felt this rushed out of a restaurant. All we asked was a couple of min and we would have ordered coffees and dessert and maybe a cocktail or two (there was 4 of us in the party - all adults) but we weren’t given the chance. Pity that our Christmas family outing was ruined like that!!

    Was a great experience, the food was amazing, everyone was very friendly and the cocktails were 10/10. The only thing was, we weren't advised by staff on how much to order for the number of people we had, so we ended up under-ordering, but besides that, it was great!

    Lovely prechristmas catch up with friends here on Saturday. Food was fantastically tasty and the spicy margarita was fab. Only issue was the restaurant was very cold( in fairness it was freezing outside) so we had our coats on inside- is this an energy crisis thing? Thanks for lovely lunch

    The name sounds like mexican but the only thing mexican is nachos. Everything else is Asian Fusion. It was good food but odd. We had great service and good food and drinks so while the menu was odd everything was good.

    Great for a town buzzing get together meal with friends. Food was just as nice as our last time, various staff members we interacted with were all lovely, however our waitress obviously wasn't in the mood for a busy Saturday night in work. She was miserable, sullen and did the bare minimum. Nobody knows what's going on with people's lives, the trick in hospitality is to not let it show on your face and let off steam when you finish. Disappointing really as there were some lovely colleagues of hers who obviously were enjoying their jobs who we could have had instead. It would not stop me from returning or recommending the restaurant as it's by a part of town we enjoy,these things happen.
