    Great service, really friendly staff. Food was delicious and offered something different to the usual Mexican street food. Good range for a small menu also.

    We have been searching for authentic Mexican food for ages and this has really impressed us. The flavours were as we remembered from our trip to Mexico and the service amazing and friendly. Will be back and highly recommend.

    Excellent welcome , good food & service. We were a we bit late for our reservation & going to theatre so only had 45 mins. Waitress happily said this no problem & explained options for us. Ended up choosing to go with the chef’s selections (3) Lovely dishes provided, tasty & refreshing. Definitely will return for pre theatre meal!
