    We booked our table for 7pm, we didn’t receive our food until 9pm and it was not that busy. Extremely slow service. Pornstar martini arrived with a hair in it and one piece of ice, was clearly sitting on the counter for quite some time. I ordered the chicken fajitas, but was served beef instead, although after the 2 hour wait I was already starving so didn’t have the chance to change my meal. Poor service, poor quality and overall a poor experience. Won’t be returning x

    Food was good but the staff was very lost, forgot about our order, brought us drinks twice. It is a nice place but a bit pricey for what it is, still a street food Mexican. I would avoid ordering pitcher since it is mainly just ice.

    Food take around 1 hour. We were downstairs and the volume of the music was to high, you have to talk very loud otherwise the other person won't listen what are you saying. Not a place to have a nice chatting dinner. Food was ok but really spicy but for species of condiment almost like Indian not the real Mexican spicy🌶. I don't think that I will come back.

    Food was stunning but service was very slow. We had to go up to the counter to get menus and again to ask if we could order. We were also waiting a long time for our food and drinks to be delivered.

    I had booked a table for 8pm and when I arrived, the restaurant was full. I spoke to a waiter and told him I had a table book, which he seems to be surprised at. We had to wait outside while they got a table ready. I had gone with a Mexican friend to treat him to some "real" Mexican food. He was fair from impressed saying there was no way this was real Mexican food and tasted very poorly. We got our starter quick enough but had to wait over an hour for the main course. I asked for a bottle of water for the table and when it arrived, the glasses were so hot we had to wait until the cooled down before we could pour the water, clearly taken straight from the dishwasher. After I asked for the bill, we were ignored so eventually we went to the bar to pay the bill. I was very disappointed in the overall experience.

    In my opinion it is very small but i think that makes it unique. we were greeted at the door and brought straight down to our seats served immediately for drinks and food and the drinks were out in less than five minutes and the food we only waited another 15! very well done i got the pulled pork tacos they were soo juicy and flavorful i did ask for extra guac but that's just preference also the cocktails were so nice and it was great value for money! will definitely be back again

    Food was very nice, it was so busy and we did wait 30 minutes for our food to come, the chicken wings were luke warm so we sent them back and we got fresh ones piping hot. Enchiladas and fajitas were gorgeous and we also had the strawberry margarita which was real nice. We will definitely be back but maybe mid week when its not as busy

    We waited 2 hours for our food to arrive. Service was very slow and there was little communication from the waiters. When the food did arrive it was nice but our starter came at the same time as the mains.

    We waited over an hour for our food. Waiters were lovely, not their fault just extremely slow service and the restaraunt was overrun. Food is tasty, but I'm not running back to the restaraunt as service was very poor.

    While the staff were absolutely lovely, we were waiting over an hour before we had even gotten a drink. The place was quite busy in fairness but we were sitting there for about 40 minutes before anyone even took our order. We got our starter and main course out at once because our server was conscious of how long we were sitting there (would recommend insisting on getting them separately as portions are huge). The food was gorgeous and great value, it was just a pity about the wait!

    Very busy and popular restaurant. The facilities are basic and not fussy, my table was sticky but clean, this was overlooked because the customer service was good and the food was very filling and enjoyable and I loved my drink. In short, yes I would book again.

    Service was awful. We waited over 1 hour and 15 minutes for our main course even though the restaurant was less than half full. There was no apology or explanation. The food was like warm when it arrived and the steak fajitas were inedible. We told the waiter whilst we were paying, he ignored us and said nothing. We said it again and he shrugged his shoulders and walked off. Do not reccomend

    Food was delicious, we had nachos with pulled pork, beef enchiladas and the ribs! Lovely little place. We booked in advance just because I always do which was lucky as they were turning away walk ins at 6pm on a Tuesday evening. Would definitely go again!

    We were sat at the table closest to the door when a huge group of tourists came through, leaving the door open on a cold evening letting the breeze in, and completely filling the walkway in the middle of the restaurant. The stood, pushing against our chairs and table for at least 20 minutes , while none of the servers seemed to do anything for them. The servers therefore couldn’t reach our table and we were seated for 50 minutes before we were able to order our food. The food was nice, and we love coming here, but the service and the arrangement of the restaurant was appalling. We were really disappointed with our visit. The music is also incredibly loud which didn’t help the loud tourists shouting to each other. Impossible to enjoy the evening

    Restaurant was very busy but there was no delays or lack of service, and where else can you get a litre of margarita as good as these, great portion sizes for the food too, I had great intentions of getting dessert but I was too full to consider it. Only issue was the table felt very cramped between two other tables and the entire restaurant being fully booked.

    Small venue but nice vibe, music was good. Some might be a little over stimulated with the volume. My partner is lactose intolerant and she had loads of choices. Cocktails were great, passion fruit margarita was fantastic and the litre jug was good value. The Tacos Al pastor and the fajitas were delicious. The fried ice cream dessert was a little disappointing but churros were tasty. Would go back again.
