Food was amazing, some of the best Mexican I have had and it was reasonably priced for the size of the meal. The service was excellent, the staff were friendly and attentive.

Wonderful food and were kind enough to open on Fathers Day even though they are normally closed on a Sunday. My son said their chocolate churros are the best he's ever tasted!!

Went last night and had a good night, food was nice and tasty, the salsa was nice but would have liked more. The pulled beef was the nicest I have had anywhere and the food going out to other tables look good. The churros were good and the sauce was nice but a small dipping pot would have been nice. The staff were great very friendly and helpful regarding dishes etc, it was busy so it was a bit noisy but that is pretty normal at this type of restaurant. Easy booking online through Quandoo our name was in the book when we arrived (always a good start). Early days for this place and they will only improve on an already good start, look forward to returning and giving a 6 rating.

Upon arrival, we were asked if we were attending the show at Thebarton theatre, which we were, and were advised that they would make sure they get the food out quickly. We ordered a dip for a starter, and one person ordered a burrito, the other a trio of tacos. It was almost an hour before we received our food, and our ‘starter’ was delivered with the mains. We had to eat extremely quickly to ensure we were at the theatre in time for the show. The food was ok, but not worth the time we had to wait.

Lovely food and good service. The menu may need to be reassessed as there are no clear vegetarian options, only vegan. The kitchen was very happy to oblige our request and add dairy goodness to a vegan dish though. For a new place its getting a lot of things right!

Took my friend for her birthday and we were not disappointed. The Sangria was to die for, and the food was delicious. The staff were very attentive and friendly and also organised a cute dessert and sang happy birthday to my friend for her birthday. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent service, the team went the extra mile to ensure our night was great! Will definitely be back. We had a selection of starters and a main, salsa was nice but so was the rest of our food...

The food was good though the menu was a bit of Tex-Mex. Friday night-so was full with a good buzz (=pocito noisy!) Be aware of the description "fire tacos"-a very accurate description'. Even though the hordes had descended the service was fine.
