Lovely fresh, tasty food. The beef taco was my favourite. We sat down the back and because this was near the door to the rear courtyard it was a little bit cold and we kept our coats on throughout the meal, also seating was stools -so not the most relaxing, comfortable meal but they atmosphere was good and staff were very accommodating and friendly.
Absolutely missed eating here during the shut down and first night back did not disappoint. The fish tacos are beyond amazing 10/10 as alwaysn
