Always a buzzing atmosphere here. Great two for one cocktails and a wide choice of food. Caters for vegetarians. The staff are friendly and service is good. Nothing negative to say.

Considering the party size was circa 50 covers the service and food quality was very good. There were obvious delays with some meals but nothing that detracted from the evening. They coped very well with the party and would recommend if you are taking a large group for a meal.

The place was very busy like everywhere else Saturday night so we where told, for a table it will be a 45-50 minute wait, understandable so brought ourselves a few drinks which we had to wait at the bar for 20 minutes to order them, after about 40 minutes I notice two groups of people walking in who got seated...

Sure made this birthday girl feel special! The food was great, I tried something new this time and loved it. Had the Moqueca de Peixe and it was super yummy! Millie told... More

(Great when there are 4 of you!) There is a wide choice of starters, the nachos were great. dinner was a... More

I must admit, I rarelydine at any Mexican dining. But wow, I sure wasted a lot not doing so more often. Probably I don't come across alot. But anyway, this was as they say, love at first sight kind of feeling. The selection was good. From the appetizer to the main course up to the desert was just sumptuous. The... More

We go here a lot and have never yet been disappointed by the food. Particular favourites are fajitas and xinxim. I also like that the menu separates out Brazilian, Mexican and Peruvian dishes. On the downsides, while service doesn't fall in the category of slow it seems that the restaurant is perhaps 1 waiter/waitress short. The design of the venue... More

Our visit was for dinner after work. We visited during the 2 for one cocktail time which is always a bonus, unfortunately the cocktails we had were not the strongest re alcohol content!!!! The staff were really friendly but clearly rushed off their feet. Despite this the atmosphere was fun if a bit noisy. The food was great and really... More

We where greeted by a friendly waitress and shown to our table. So far so good, but that's where it ended. The waitress was very busy serving numerous tables, so it took 40 minutes before our order was taken for food and drinks. 20 minutes later our starter came out, fresh from a packet of Doritos and come salsa from...
