The food was very tasty and the serving sizes were fair. The corn fritters were a hit, and the tacos certainly didn't disappoint. Great service, and we were also allowed to split the bill.

After a work function next door at Mexicano's we headed into TDL - the service was the best we have ever experienced in a crowded bar (made even more exceptional when all the rugby supporters arrived after the Lions game).

Brilliant service from an intimate hidden away bar. Table service, friendly guys, even better drinks! Only complaint was it was too hot sitting inside and suggest dimming the lights leading to the bathrooms, was too bright after sitting in the low lights of the lounge.
