A funny little place, not massively busy when we went, but was a nice evening. The food was great and the Margaritas were nice.

Deliciously tasty Mex-Mex food - spicy if that's what you like or equally great non-spicy options - fantastic Margaritas available by the jug, lovely ambience and friendly service. What's not to love. Already planning a return trip.

After enjoying dinner here a few months ago, we were delighted to see Viva La Mexicana was open for brunch today! The chilaquiles were delicious, as were the refried beans! If you're looking for tasty, authentic Mexican food, make sure you visit this place.

Really tasty authentic mexican food. Independent. Nice atmosphere. Passionate about their food. Good range of meals on menu. Cheap £1 filter coffee in the mornings (coffee is self-serve) . Highly recommended

This is a lovely little restaurant. A little unassuming to look at but the waitress was lovely and the food was great, feels like authentic Mexican food and drink. Will definitely be coming back!

Really enjoyed trying Mex-Mex food rather than Tex-Mex. Generous portions and tasty food. Also recommend the specialist soft drinks, especially the Mexican Cola. We even bought some to take home with us. The staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble - opening specially...More
