Visited at lunch time so it to very busy. Waitress very professional and offered a choice of Mexican dishes. Prior to eating she suggested a drink before my food arrived so l chose a Mojito and it was fantastic. Alas as was driving l only...had the one. Ordered mussels then Fajitas both were excellent and l could not finish my food. Returned at the evening without the car and enjoyed more Mojitos and other drinks with were served by the owner and l thoroughly enjoyed the experienceMore

Super helpful and friendly staff! Amazing cocktails went both day time and night time, much more chilled vibe in the day, and fun fun In the evening, although it was new years eve so may be different usually

Popped in for a drink and decided to have dinner. Cocktail list was extensive, although i have had stronger Margaritas. Vibe was nice, and was only a Tuesday night. Ordered toritilla starter, the Jalapeño poppers with cream cheese and garlic and a vindaloo curry and...all was very good, huge servings, we probably ordered too much for both of us but wanted to try it all. Staff friendly. Would def eat here again when I’m J Bay.More
