Went on a Saturday night. The food portions were large but it seemed overpriced for what it was. Service was slow and we had to ask a couple of times for drinks. I wouldn't rush back.

The meals are pretty much generic and seem microwaved not freshly cooked...ok if your on a budget holiday and feel like Mexican.

We have been here on several occasions and although the food is okay, it isn't cheap. Once you add on the drinks, it becomes an expensive night out. Interesting decor and a good atmosphere.

Really attentive and helpful waitress's but the food is really average. I ordered ribs and chicken wings but the ribs were dry with no sauce - not good! The rest of the meal was ok but certainly no stand out. Wouldn't go back again.
