Second visit to this restaurant and again no complaints! Happily fit us in on a Saturday evening and gave us a choice of tables. Efficient and friendly service! Strawberry margarita is highly recommended! Food amazing! Recommend as one of my favourite restaurants in Derby!

Wife and I called in around opening time at 5:30 ish and we were impressed with this place. The Mexican decoration was lovely and the service very good and attentive. I had the best Mexican starter that I've ever had followed by a Rioja steak....More

Visited this place twice and both times was not disappointed. Food is fresh and delicious, a good price point as the portions are quite big. Love the atmosphere too. Totally would recommend.

I was satisfied with the outcome of our dinner. The service was quick, the portions of food were very big and all tasted very good. Although the food was spicy we did not have any trouble in digesting it! The ratio quality/price is good.
