“Great Mexican in Crosby (Waterloo)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

I have been here a couple of times now, and it has become my "go to" restaurant for a good evening out while in Liverpool.
Last went with my family (wife and 2 girls) and from the moment we walked through the door until we left, were treated exceptionally well. The girls (young teenagers) loved the vibe of the place, which is seriously infectious: I too was singing along happy birthday accompanied by a mariacha band rendition to the birthday cakes (with sparklers), as they went to their various recipients. The service is great, always there to help, even though they are incredibly busy.
The food is also excellent, more tex-mex than authentic mexican, but in all honesty sooo tasty and delicious that I much prefer it this way. The kids meals were extremely well proportioned, excellent value for money and left them incredibly pleased, leaving the adults to enjoy a huge choice from a very enticing menu. The nachos as starter is a must, (could easily have this as a main) and the steaks were seriously brilliant.
Bottom line: Great meal out. Great ambiance. Great service.

HOWEVER, ALWAYS reserve a table first as they seem to be booked up days (weeks) in advance on busy times.

“Ariba ariba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

I have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions, birthdays with friends, family as a couple and with the my two sons , there is something for everyone. The early bird menu until 7 is great value for money @ £12.95 for 2 courses. ( there is a supplement for steak) menu is varied with all food cooked fresh on ordering the steaks and lamb cutlets are particularly good. All meals come with rice/chips and salad. The staff are so friendly and attentive always on hand to replenish your glass, I recommend the cocktails the daiquiris are amazing !! All in all a great overall experience will keep me and you coming back for more time and time again. I struggle to find a better restaurant around .

“Fantastic Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

I have dined here on far too many occasions to remember both in groups and as a couple..! I can honestly say since visit number one about 2-3 years ago I have struggled to try other local places as it would mean missing out going here. The food is the major attraction from the huge juicy well 'cooked to preference' steaks to tasteful traditional Mexican dishes. I have never had a complaint in any way whatsoever and neither has any one I have been with. The staff are brilliant and always willing to help. I genuinely can not recomment this restaurant highly enough. The value for money is great. Please ignore the reviews submitted by people who clearly think paying under £20 for a meal means they are expecting Gordon Ramsey to be cooking for them.

“Mexican Fare at it's Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

Recommended by several friends I went to La Parrilla for my 65th birthday meal. I had not eaten Mexican food for some time and was a little worried that it would be rather dull and boring. What a mistake! I cannot praise the quality of the food highly enough, the menu choice was large and varied and the staff offered very helpful advice re various dishes and portion size (be warned, the portions are on the rather large side!). The service was first class, the prices very reasonable (I am told that the Early Bird menu is even better value - I plan to give it a try!) and the place was really humming! All in all a very enjoyable evening, but don't tell them it is your birthday, you might find yourself wearing a Sombrero!
