The dishes were very good and the staff was very friendly. The prices were reasonable too. Will highly recommened others to come. The tacos platter was delicious.
Always a good night, great food and drinks, and awesome service 👌🏽
Amazing food fun atmosphere! The vegetarian tacos were lovely and the pricing was reasonable. My friends said the fish tacos were great too, when you ask for hot they deliver !
My favourite Mexican place in Melbourne (and I've tried a lot of places).
I hate to do this as a hospo professional myself but the service was absolutely terrible. We waited a long time to be greeted after sitting on what was not a busy night. The music was so loud our server didn't hear part of our order which is understandable but after asking 3 times about our appetizer they finally figured out it was never even put through. There was an obvious hair in my water but I don't fuss too much about those things. My food came out ages before anyone else's so I got to watch it become cold before everyone else received their mains. Our 2 rounds of shots each took more than 10 minutes to ¿prepare? despite being seated directly in front of the bar. We were never checked in on or offered another round so we spent most the night trying to chase down a server. At one point the wrong drinks come out and when I acknowledged it the waitress left them on the table, stood their blank faced and said unaccommodatingly "Well... Do you waaant me to take them back." So to be a good patron we said it's fine and drank something we knew we wouldn't enjoy. When you have customers come in who for their first round order the most expensive things on the menu that means their here to have fun and spend some money. Maybe give them a little bit of your time because chances are they also tip well. I will say this I love the decor and the food is the bomb. The kitchen also works very hard filling all the uber eats orders and considering this most of our food came out very quickly.
Wonderful restaurant! Excellent food, friendly staff, and lovely ambience. I would be very likely to visit again, and would definitely recommend it to a friend! 10/10 experience for me!
Lovely staff, delicious food, good vibes. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive, and the food was wonderful. Jalapeno poppers were a definite highlight. Will definitely be back
Good food and okay service. We ate paella which was delicious. The restautant was full so it took quite a long time to get the check and waiters seemed to be in a hurry all the time. Otherwise a nice experience.
Went there with a group of 10 people. Food (as always) was fantastic. Always fresh. Would recommend to anybody who has a bit of a passion for mexican food!
This a very relaxed restaurant, the staff are very friendly, the food is really tasty and it is reasonably priced I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
