I asked if the chicken was spicy hot, the attendant replied only a little. Well after one mouthful I had to drink a bottle of water to put out the fire! $16 for a mouthful of fire=Ripped off!

Very friendly and quick service. The food was very tasty - big portions too. The meal was reasonably priced and the location is lovely. Definitely worth a visit.

We visited on a Monday night and we were instantly greeted and made to feel very welcome. The waiters were very attentive and throughout the evening asked if we needed anything. The food we ordered came out quickly and it was full of flavour.

How can any Mexican restaurant mess up nachos? This one did! After a very long wait served us cold nachos with almost no cheese. Sent them back but the second time was worse. The chips were burned and still no cheese. Horribly slow service both...More

Yet to find really good Mexican food outside of Mexico and this place proves the point. No depth of flavour to any of the dishes we ordered; everything just a little bland, flat it has to be said
