We visited for a friends 40th, I booked it based on trip advisor ratings and I wasn't disappointed. The food was so tasty, we went for the pre theatre menu and it's like Mexican tapas and my other friends had fajitas which was also yum!

The restaurant is very warm and welcoming as are all the staff we encountered. We opted for food from the pre-theatre menu at £25 for 3 courses and we were really happy with the choice... More

Our waiter was really nice and very attentive however whereas the starters came in quite fast, it took a long time for the mains to arrive and the same with the... More

We're Americans living here in London and it's taken a long time to find a good Mexican restaurant with the true flavours and a darned good Margarita. We found it here, although when you order the "Three Taco" plate, don't expect three usual sized tacos like in the US -- these are quite small. But everything is so flavourful, it... More
