“Freindly staff average food”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Lots of rave reviews about the food: can't see what all the fuss is about. Perhaps it was the fact that we ordered veggie food but it all seemed a bit bland. That said the Nachos were nice and the staff were freindly.

“Good food and friendly staff”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Enjoyed a lovely meal with the family. Good varied menu, large portions and excellent value.

A couple of us had the fjahitas. Therewas enough meat, onions apeppers for about 5 or 6 wraps, they only give you 3, but after that you're stuffed anyway.

Saw someone order the ribs, looked great and enough for two to share.

“Blown away - what a treat”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

From the outside it looks a tad dowdy but nothing ventured nothing gained!
We were greeted by a very pleasant maître de who showed into a huge eating area with substantial outside area. She sat us away from others brought menus and left us alone to view. After 3 minutes enquirer about drinks and followed up with taking food order at just the right time. A great start!
Combo starter for 2 brought wings, ribs, stoked peppers, onion rings , dips and nachos. All brilliant and tasty
Lamb burritos and the special swordfish washed down with Mexican beer.
This us the best quality and great tasting Mexican food I have ever had. The price was reasonable for quality service and food.
It is rare to get food like this in a tourist town but miss this at your peril!
Would not hesitate in coming back or recommending this restaurant to anyone.

“Yummy Nachos”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Whilst on holiday in Devon we decided to try the Mexican. We went early taking our 2 children 1 & 3 years old.

For starter I had deviled mushrooms, not too much devil in there but tasty none the less, my wife had the beef chilli nachos, now that was fantastic. Unlike other mexicans the chilli wasn't draped over the top so no soggy nacho syndrome here. Lots of red Jalapenos to keep my spicy taste buds satisfied.

For the main my wife had chicken Fajitas, which she thoroughly enjoyed I had the hot version of the Chilli Con Carne, which I thought was very nice.

Service was excellent, food was very good I would most certainly return!

“very good”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

This was our second visit.

It is my impression that the menu has softened a bit to give a broader appeal, certaimly the placed was packed.

The "heat warning" on the Chicken Mexicana was accurate. The Mexican sweet chicken not exactly sweet, but creamy.

Overall very good and recommended.

However, a visit to bathroom merited a minor criticism. The water is scalding!!! And in my opinion a label saying it is very hot is not a solution.
