We have been here many times over the last few years and it was chosen by my son for his birthday so his children (20 months and three and a half) could also attend. This is a small but child friendly establishment.

The service was prompt and plesant if unskilled and the food was of a high standard. IMHO the only thing that lets the place down is the noise and lack of atmosphere but then if this changed it wouldn't be child friendly would it?

If you are looking for a great place to eat out with children and enjoy a good meal this is for you.

It is a BYO so you don't have to pay inflated prices for your drinks.

Bad, bad, bad. Dont go hungry unless you have $40 per person. Staff cant say dish names correctly, including owner, and argue when corrected. Small portions, not very authentic, and exceptionally overpriced. Sides, by the teaspoon. Mains, entree size, and double the price of what they are worth. All and all very bad. Especially the attitude from the female owner. More front than a shop window. Soooo rude. Especially considering their location. No wonder they havent been able to sell in 5 years.

We were greater by by a friendly waitress who made sure our children were happy, that was really nice. The atmosphere was great, though the temperature a little chilly.

The mains were ok, nice enough, filling but the salad/ lettuce was a bit if a boring side. Where were all the lush tomatoes? Cheese, sour cream and guacamole were all considered extras and with an already very pricey meal, I was reluctant to order any extras to make the meal more varied in tastes and textures.

My son got a kids meal taco and it was just 1 measly taco, a heap of lettuce and 6 corn chips. I shared my meal with him, at 5yo he was looking for more, at $12, I was looking for more!!!

Maybe will go back there with friends... The pizza on the next table looked nice!

This was a great restaurant for a fun night out. Yes, it was overpriced but the friendly, accommodating staff and tasty food more then compensated. With a fussy couple, one vegan and one vegetarian, the saff were well informed about our dietary restrictions, were happy to take the time to explain our options and make variations of their menu.

The atmosphere was bright, colorful and fun. The music was great to tap your feet to and the place was warm and welcoming on a freezing autumn night!

The food was lovely, although pricey. The flavours were much like many other Mexican restaurants but we really appreciated the large servings and thoughtful presentation.

The staff, location and atmosphere here are the real the drawcards.

Thanks Poco Loco!
