We love mexican food and were keen to try this place out for dinner. We went for chicken and beef burritos, and a prawn and jalapeno dish. Unfortunately, both were a little bland. It's not just that they weren't spicy enough, but didn't have fullness of flavour. Serving sizes were OK. There were many discount coupons available in the tourist... More

Lovely restaurant, tucked away from the sights and sounds of Cavill Ave. Decor and music puts you right in Mexico. Waitress was super attentive and we didn't wait long for food or cocktails. Meals were tasty and fresh - very generous helpings. We both joined their mailing list online to score 50% off our meals. Well worth it.

My wife and I dined here on 22 Feb 17. Waitress was very good but it really ends there. Not many people in the restaurant so I should have taken that as a bad omen. Meal was large but lacked real taste in comparison to other restaurants of the same chain. We both had the chicken Tostada. Unfortunately it was... More

Statrted off with the guacamole dip with corn chips, even got lucky and was able to get a fresh batch of guac without onions because the chef was in the back... More

I had high hopes for this restaurant. As you walk in, the decor is brightly colored with traditional native Mexican paintings and other Mexican folk art, however that's were the "Mexican" ends. The food authenticity is a valiant effort considering Mexico is on the other side of the planet, but believe me, this restaurant is no where near what a... More
