Great food, great drinks and great atmosphere. I come here regularly for meals in groups or as a couple and love it every time. One of my favourite places to eat. Would highly recommend to anyone.

8 of us had a table booked tonight for 7.30pm - turned up on time but no booking ( even though we had an email confirming it ) obviously it was a glitch in the system - most of us had traveled down from Aberdeen - asked to speak to a manager but none available on a busy Friday night... More

Dear Charlie. I completely understand your disappointment. I emailed the person last night who originally made the reservation to apologise as soon as I found out what had happened. I had also offered to compensate your party for our mistake. It wasn't a glitch in the system that caused your reservation not to be noted on our nightly running list.... More

Nice food but we have to change our order because was something wrong with Beef but that was not a problem. Second choice was very nice. Staff friendly.

Went as part of a very well organised hen night. Our food was great and so was our waitress . However the management and his attitude to professional customer service was embarrassing.

We have been here a couple of times now and we have really enjoyed the food on both occasions. Very generous portions and a reasonable and varied menu to choose from. The prices are a little on the steep side but certainly worth the extra money once in a while.

This is a beautifully presented restaurant. The service and food were pretty good but it's by no means cheap and cheerful. Quite pricey for Mexican with dishes made essentially using quite low cost ingredients. The kids (teenagers) loved it and I have no complaints.

Husband and I popped in for some margaritas while wandering around the city centre. Cool little place with a great selection of cocktails. We had a classic and a raspberry margarita. Very tasty! Staff were attentive and service was quick.

Finally managed to dine here with friends on Saturday night and it was worth the wait! Each of us chose something different and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Great service too. We all agreed it won't be too long before we're back.
