Myself and 2 friends had dinner here last weekend. All three of us ordered tacos for starters. All tacos came out cold and the taco itself tasted as if it was stale and not fresh. Burritos to follow which were very nice but pricey. Waited for about 45 mins to get the bill and pay. Food was hit and miss.... More

Was there yesterday for lunch. Staff was friendly, food was served fast (I was the only customer). Lunch menu is disappointing and prices are not reflected in the food. Only soup was warm rest almost cold. I've paid 15e and was very disappointed. This ain't even spicy food.

Be aware -- here now on a Saturday night and virtually every table is clapping and waving ... attempting to get these fruit flies away from their food. Gross.

Menu looks promising on first glance with the usual Mexican specialties but food is overall nothing special, a bit bland and pretty average. Having been to the Indian restaurant Diwali on George's St (just up from Acapulco) which is excellent and well worth a visit, I suppose we were expecting this to be on a par...Unfortunately we were much mistaken.

We had been here a couple of times and had always been happy but our most recent visit was extremely disappointing. The waiter we had (adi) was absolutely lovely and although I can't fault the service the food was a massive let down. The chilli I got (which a Mexican restaurant should be able to do right) was a reheated... More

We visited just before lunch mid week and were one of just 2 tables seated. After being seated we waited about 10 mins for menus and then only had our orders taken when we approached the bar area and got the staff attention. We ordered starters, mains and water. The starters arrived with the mains and the water arrived after... More

I was part of two couples that visited here (my first time) for a meal out. We had booked which was good as it was busy. The staff were attentive and friendly. The place itself is cheerful, warm and welcoming. Good choice of food on the menu - with great options for vegetarians. Most of the options you can choose... More

I am a birthday lover and always I want to celebrate it as it would be the last one so I went there with a bunch of 15 people to celebrate my 28th Birthday last Wednesday. Food was good but not great, prices were a little bit expensive but as I was my second time there and I really have... More
