    The fajitas were amazing!! (and great value on half price Thursday) - Pepper & Lime steak and original chicken ones both fab!) The meals didn’t come out at the same time though which means half our table had finished their meal before the rest got theirs... :( We sat outside, the view is beautiful and its not as loud as inside for gals who like chatting :)

    All good but a tight squeeze and a large group placed beside us as well.

    Mixed feelings about El Camino, the way the kitchen sends out dishes is very inconsistent. One nachos with the lot came out with plenty of corn chips but the second one did not. In Saying that I also must point out the nachos are very tasty although I would have loved some more guacamole and sour cream. I had to order extra sour cream at $2.50 which came in a tiny dish. Frozen margaritas are delicious and big but one simple gin and tonic is quite steep at $16.50. Customer service was friendly and helpful. Loved that a lot of the servers spoke Spanish. I will definitely go back again but maybe this time I’ll give them feed back on the spot. Nearly forgot, love that we could order at the bar, it’s great not to have to workout a bill for 14 at the end.

    Fun place. Ordered the fajitas and shared. Plenty of food when accompanied by a couple of margaritas

    On arrival, there was no one at the front desk. A group of staff were standing around talking. After 2 minutes, I went to get someone and someone eventually came over and seated us. It took the waitress 15 minutes to take our drinks order. The drink were quite good but the server spilt some of one and really struggled to carry 2 drinks. They only have one proper gluten free option which is a burrito bowl. For $19 you get some vegetables and rice, half a steak which was thin, cold and very chewy. The menu also says it comes with avocado, but the dish did not come with it. When I asked a server, he said he would check with the kitchen but never came back. Five minutes after, another server got a small ramekin of guacamole. My friends ordered quesadillas which were two tortillas with some mushrooms and cheese for $12.5. Overall it was an overpriced, frankly poor meal

    First time back in a long time. Seemed to be a little understaffed. Food was good as always, sangria nice and refreshing. Hopefully things staffing related are better next time

    Did the Tex Mex Fiesta and loves it but felt the staff ignoring us after 1hour into the 2hour sitting and had to keep asking for service. Great drinks and food, left very happy

    Such a disappointment. Despite the high prices at lunchtime it was an order at the bar service. My husband ordered me a drink and then the barman said he'd bring it over. A few minutes later a stroppy waitress brought it over telling us we'd forgotten our drink. Service was pretty low, food was average to below average e.g. churros tasted greasy and of old oil. Will not be going back.

    Absolutely great experience at El Camino Manly. The staff were great, we had a great table overlooking the water and the sunset all whilst enjoying delicious food and great cocktails! The vibe around the restaurant was awesome, friendly, plenty of life and just a great night out.

    For an All You Can Eat event, 3 small tacos is hardly enough. The atmosphere was great, but spoiled by the slow kitchen who couldn’t keep up with demand.

    All was great. Only downside was we waited 10 minutes for the waitress to assign us to a table. The rest was terrific.

    The Music was ridiculously loud - after asking 3 times to turn it down as I could not hear my wife talking to me across the table (and it not being changed) we knew we were not coming back. Waste of a good night

    Nachos were terrible, pretty ordinary for a Mexican restaurant that you can’t get this simple dish right
