Great Mexican food! Not the run of the mill Mexican either - a little different, in a great way! The quesadillas were light and refreshing, the jalapeno vodka and spicy beer a great twist. Great decor and atmosphere. The staff seemed a bit rushed but...More

Tried the Mexican feast for 2 and it was excellent. Tasty and a little bit different. Coconut flan for pudding was also very good.

Hi Lynda - definitely! You can see our gluten advice menu on our website, and our team can advise on lactose on the day. Often this just requires removing a cheese or crema garnish. Hope we'll see you soon.
