    We really enjoyed the cauliflower tacos and our two vegetarian mains were tasty. My only recommendation is to consider having two types of vegetarian options (ie not just a mushroom and capsicum mixture for any vegetarian dish. Otherwise the service was great and atmosphere relaxed. :)

    It was really tasty - especially the chicken quesadillas. We will return for sure! $5 margaritas on Wednesday’s is pretty nice too. Nice spot for a mid week dinner!

    An awesome restaurant and bar. Cocktails were great and the food was amazing. So delicious and well priced. The churros for dessert melt in your mouth. We will be for for sure.

    Service was great but food was average. We ordered the tuna ceviche however the tuna didn't appear or taste fresh and the consistency was odd. The squid was average and the prawn tacos were disappointing. The tostadas were good. The bar stools and table were also a bit uncomfortable because you can't fit your legs under the table.

    Not the most comfortable chairs to sit on. Other than that, great food and excellent service.

    Place was buzzing... great atmosphere. I enjoyed the vegetarian quesadilla as my main. The cauliflower tacos were delicious! Was disappointed that they couldn’t make the jalapeño poppers vegetarian- I asked for the bacon to be removed but they said it was mixed in and couldn’t be removed.

    The fish and pulled pork taco were our favourites. We got the taco sharing platter, mushroom quesadilla and beef nachos. Ambience was okay. A good place for a casual night out with friends!

    We went early (5.45) and had no issues with noise or space. The service and food to be great! The lamb tacos were a highlight. The Torta Cubana was another great dish.

    Great food and service. They didn’t have a couple of non-alcoholic beverages that I wanted, but the food came quickly, plates were cleared quickly as well. Decor is quaint and the esquites was ????????. Be happy to go again if I’m in the area.
