Visited on a busy Saturday night. We were informed that dishes may take longer than usual as it was busy but they were no longer than we would have expected. All food was very well presented and tasty with friendly service. Definitely worth a visit for meals and cocktails.

Visited as two adults and a child as part of the happy hour promotion. The drinks, in particular the jugs, were good, although the first tequila sunrise was more like a tequila pink sky as it was all mixed on delivery and the B52 Shooters were all mixed as well. Chicken wings were great with a lovely smokey flavour and... More

One of the reasons we tried this place was because it had good reviews, especially for the fajitas. We stayed in Durham and everything was great until we got to Tias. Very disappointed in the food. We ordered the fajitas which were very bland and had no spice to them at all. This may have been a one off but... More

I went to Tia's to try the food after a lot on my team told me about it and how great the food was and they wasn't wrong. The food was amazing from my starters and my main. I believe this great restaurant would put the big Mexican brands to shame. If there was a Tia's in my city of... More

What a great night in Tia's last night . Myself and 8 colleagues celebrating my moving on to the next chapter of my life. I thought it would help to give Tia's a list of guests and choice of main course, but needn't have worried- the service was fantastic, each main course was delivered by name to each diner. Mexican...

Not the most glamorous of places, obviously an old Italian restaurant with minimal effort on the Mexican theme. However staff were very friendly and attentive, the food itself was amazing with good prices and large portions. Drinks were reasonable too. Would advise the Tia's onion special starter for two people !

If you want a meal which is.......okay, then this is place to go. Everything about the food was average and nothing that I couldn't have made in my own house. Was very disappointed considering all the hype on this website about it. It's also far too expensive and that is with the "happy hour" discount. The service was......okay, not great,... More
