Lovely decor and energy, and perfect place if you want to grab a relatively quick bite. We had the guacamole, ceviche and taco specials (one with duck, the other with spicy pork). The portions are perfectly sized to share. The margaritas are lovely and my husband enjoyed the various beers on tap.

Walking off the, bustling and restaurant filled, Kloofnek Street we were not greeted by anyone at the door. Eventually, we got one of the waitresses attention and were told that they do not have a table for our party of 4 at the moment and we were added to their waiting list. We grabbed a drink at the bar across the road and finally did manage to get a table. Service was glacially slow, it took ages just to get a drinks order in. Finally ordering some food that was really tasty, all hats off to the chef but their efforts are really undone by the floor staff. Don't think I'll be back.

We were here with the intention of having a quick bite and some guacamole and we found it to be good, served quickly and with a very friendly staff. Absolutely a pleasure.

Nice tasty tacos, lots of different options. Swift service, even though it was busy. Affordable from a European perspective!
