Visited with my girlfriend for a few cocktails. We enjoyed them so decided to try the food. Ordered a burrito and some fries. The fries were good but the burrito was cold and pretty tasteless.
Left the food and went to eat elsewhere.

well the title of the review sums it up. The menu was fun with a mix of everything - we were a party of 10 and everyone's food was great, we had a real mix of street food and large plates. The ribs were out of this world!

The cocktail menu is fun and the drinks sometimes come in quirky jars.

We went on a friday night and there was a live act on which created a great atmosphere as people were dancing around. We loved it but i could see some others wouldn't its a place to go for a fun night out.

The food prices were great although the cocktails prices were often more than the food but overall price of the meal wasn't too bad.

will be back next time i'm in manchester.

Really liked the look of this place, nice and quirky (the lampshades in the ladies are amazing!)

Went with a group of ten who covered near enough the whole menu! the food was great! everyone was really happy! the jalepeno fishcakes went down a treat as did the pulled pork quesidillas (delicous) one small point is that the burritos had a bit of a kick, for kids or people like me who cant really take any spice they were a bit much so i'd order some sour cream! but everyone else though they were great

Love how some of the drinks came in little jars!

Would for sure go back! one small point is that the burritos were rather spicy, for kids or people like me who cant really take any spice they were a bit much so i'd order some sour cream!

Went to Lucha Libra recently for a lunchtime meet up with friends but I was distinctly underwhelmed by the food offerings. Ordered veggie chilli and one of my friends ordered the beef chilli only for the waiter to come back 5 minutes later to tell us that they'd run out of chilli. When we asked which variety, he said "both". This is a Mexican restaurant and it was a Saturday lunchtime. How could they run out of something as obvious as chilli? The replacement stuffed pepper which I was persuaded to order was very poor. The pepper shell was hard as a rock and it had been stuffed with something akin to soggy breadcrumbs. Whatever it was, it was unpleasant and I sent most of it back. The other guests commented on the fact that I had eaten so little of the meal but the waiting on staff didn't even acknowledge it. Perhaps they are used to taking unfinished meals back to the kitchen? I won't be back in a hurry and wouldn't recommend you visit this restaurant.
