We were very disappointed with our experience. Service was very slow - anyone who was sitting at the bar received 2 and 3 orders to our 1. Menu is very minimal and the food is not the best. Meals were either filled out with so much rice or very bland tasting. We could not recommend this restaurant which is sad as Toukley needs somewhere like this. We could not book in until 7.45 and 1 person had their main meal come at the same time as entrees and then after we received our mains we were told at 8.45 (1 hour after we got there) we needed to order dessert as the kitchen was closing at 9pm on a Friday night.

The food was amazing. The flavours were great. I thought it was a bit expensive for what you got. Four of us had four different dishes and hardly a vegetable to be found. I had brisket beef tacos, 3 small ones, a little slice of red onion, a leaf of corriander and some salsa is all that came with it. I would have liked to have seen some fresh lettuce or tomatoes. The menu also stated that burritos come with beans and rice. It was a bit confusing that the tacos didn't. Burrito bowl was a large serving of meat on rice with a few tortilla chips, again, no fresh element. The fajitas were very tasty and came with four small bowls of contents (guac, salsa, beans? and capsicum) to put on your fajitas, but again just not quite enough. There were four small tortillas. Had a lot of meat left over but ran out of tortillas. Again, flavours were amazing. service was good. Noisy sitting in the arcade but we needed chairs with backs on them and not the stools inside the restaurant. We will definitely go back.

Loved the food and drinks, took 40 minutes to place order. 8pm sitting. By the time we had finished our meal, the kitchen was closed for desert. No warning that it was going to close. Kids were all very disappointed.

The service staff were lovely but there was a long wait between our starters and mains and when the food came it didn’t have much flavour.

The enchilada was really disappointing it was essentially a plate of sauce with some lettuce leaves scattered on top for decoration.

The atmosphere, the drinks and the service staff were really great though hopefully the menu will improve in future

Have been twice, the Food is quite good but for the price would expect a bit better service. Have been sat out in the arcade outside the actual restaurant both times and you feel a little forgotten out there. Getting Things like table water, enough napkins and even trying to order more drinks is a bit of a mission. Get the level of service up for the price your paying and will be a lot better experience.

Yummy food, delicious drinks, not quiet authentic but hits the spot. Small sizes and pricy for overall experience, Plenty of reasons for the “stars” we’ve given but I won’t air that in a public review. Nice for a quick bite to eat or big night out with friends I guess.

Positive experience with excellent tasting foods and amazing cocktails.
The venue was cosy with different seating areas, which kept and allowed different groups to enjoy all that was on offer.
The only moment that diminished from a perfect overall experience was the greet staff. Wasn’t a great first impression but once inside the evening was outstanding.
4.5/5 stars

Great food, service and atmosphere. Felt like we were in a little Mexican Cantina.
The beef brisket and pork tacos were delicious. My daughter had the churros with macadamia ice cream and salted caramel. Absolutely divine!
We will be back!
