    The food was really delicious and I would love to have tried other items on the menu but you can only fit so much food in! Maybe a little cramped in the seating. The staff were very pleasant and welcoming.

    The staff are incredibly warm, helpful, welcoming and passionate about the food! The atmosphere is unpretentious and relaxed. A much needed addition to the southbank neighbourhood.

    Food and service were excellent. Only criticism was the metal chairs that are very uncomfortable. Otherwise this would have been a 10. Ask for a table with wooden chairs.

    We loved this little mexican place so much that we came back twice on our Melbourne trip! Authentic yummy food, friendly and passionate staff and a great vibe. So close to the Arts centre and walking distance from Rod Laver Arena. Loved it!

    We love quality, authentic Mexican food - and this place has that in spades. We consider this to be probably the best Mexican restaurant in Melbourne. Not a huge menu to choose from, but we have been here 5 times now and every time have loved everything we've had! Staff are lovely and always willing to chat about Mexico and where they are all from. Highly recommend it.

    Wow. 5minute walk from Southbank, welcomed on arrival by very friendly staff. Food was amazing, tasty and beautiful and fresh. Margarita‘s were yummy. This was exactly what we were looking for and enjoyed the evening immensely. Note: Not a quiet place for an intimate dinner. A fun place for food, drink and celebration with friends and family, Thanks !

    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.

    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!
