I cannot reconcile this restaurant with the overall 'very good' reviews of it on Tripadvisor, although I note that the most recent review was 8 months ago. We went there in April 2016 – not a busy tourist time but while nearby restaurants were full, this one was empty. That should have warned us, but we persevered in view of the good reviews. At 7pm the staff seemed unwilling to open the doors and were sullen and unwelcoming. Though we were the only guests the waiter took 20 minutes to bring the menu, and another half-hour to take our order. The only other patrons, a Mexican family who arrived an hour later, received the same treatment. We all waited for attention while the waiter, unbelievably, sat down to enjoy his own meal! Our starter, potato skins, arrived after an hour, cold and with congealed cheese. None of the usual Mexican trimmings while waiting. The main course arrived half-an-hour later still and was OK, although the bread tasted of freezer-burn. We would have liked a dessert but had already wasted 2.5 hours at the place and were unwilling to risk another wait. With so many good restaurants in the area we greatly regretted wasting an evening at Kiwi.
