In general the food and service were great. The only disappointing thing were the fish and prawn tacos. The fish and prawns were deep fried which wasn't mentioned on the menu and is unusual from other mexican restaurants I've been too. Plus there was soooo much batter it was hard to taste the fish or prawns. I wouldn't order these again, otherwise the food was good.

The food is absolutely delicious!!!!! Highly recommend. But, the tacos are on the small side. Like very small. I needed 4 tacos and a side to feel full. Maybe you need better taco deals where the more you buy, the better the value.

The service was good, food was delicious but the upstairs room was soooo noisy you could barely hear yourself think, let alone converse with those at your table

I just think the food lacked a little flavour, freshness and vibrance, lack of herbs / spice and would have liked fresh lime with the tacos and hot sauce on the table.
