“Really good food and pretty good service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

We went to this restaurant on the last night of our holiday, when we traditionally push the boat out a bit and have a really nice meal. They had opened early and were closing early for the England World Cup match, but we never felt pressured to order or finish our food. We ordered a jug of Pimms, which was listed on the specials board, but they had to go out and buy the Pimms because they didn't have any left. It took a while for our order to be taken, but we were comfortable in the bar sipping our Pimms, which had arrived by then. The food was great. the Nachos were hot and tasty and the Black Pudding starter was very good too. My Mojito Prawns main course was nice, spicy, but not too hot. The Quesadilla was also good and very filling. I was a bit surprised when our waitress told me she had sampled a bit of my meal while it was still in the pan though. The best part for me was the dessert. I ordered Churros and they were divine. They came with lovely vanilla ice cream and maple syrup and were doused in cinnamon. You got a good number of them too, but not too many. Overall we were very happy with our meal and were pleased to see some different things on the menu as well as the obligatory Fajitas, Burritos and Chimichangas.

“Works night out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

The food isn't that good and the service isn't that good.
The food isn't bad it's just average. Nothing that you couldn't knock up with a kit from a supermarket. The staff are friendly enough they just lack organisation and professionalism.

“Arriba, Arriba ”

Lovely Mexican, food is of a good standard and enough options to cater for all levels of spice. Being able to draw on the tables is a nice touch for big and little kids.

“Amazing prawns!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Lovely cosy place with excellent food - in particular the ribs, mojito prawns (spicy!) and churros. Always busy so essential to book. Also has a nice terrace area for drinks when the weather permits!
