“Mexican/Italian”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

Service was slow, but friendly. Mexican food pretty good, with the normal American/Mexican fare. Didn't eat the Italian food.

“Great prices before 6pm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

Take advantage of the early specials. The same great food is 2/3 the cost [though a limited menu], the service is more leisurely, and the air is not polluted with smells from patrons, so you can better enjoy your food flavors.

“The worst place I've ever been”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2013

This is a really terrible restaurant and easily the worst restaurant I've ever eaten in. The food is terrible - all four of us ate very little of our meals. It was almost inedible. My husband asked for tea and once it was served was told there was no milk. We asked for it to be removed from the bill then, as he couldn't drink it. When the bill arrived we noticed that a service charge had already been added. The service had been abysmal throughout (too much to go into here) and we questioned automatically adding the service charge (seemed really cheeky, particularly when service had been terrible). The waitress spoke to the manager who took the service charge off but he said we would need to pay for the tea now despite the issue with the milk. I got the impression that the waitresses were a bit frightened of the manager and to be honest I felt a bit intimidated by the general aggressiveness of the staff. I would never return there and would advise anyone to avoid.
