Absolutely awful experience. We waited an hour for our food (only ordered 4 tacos each) and when they arrived they were stone cold. We could hear the chef debating with the waitress that they’re meant to be served ‘warm not hot’ as we sent them back and was refusing to heat them up for about a minute or so. We had no apologies from any of the staff. Even though they were only a pound each, it wasn’t even worth that price. I had the veggie tacos and they left an awful taste in my mouth. Chips and gravy on the way home was the best part of my evening!

I was advised all tables were a 1.5 hour slot, we came for our reservation and was told our table wasn’t ready as other people still had it, waited a while longer to be told they still had it and it was best to sit upstairs where it’s more a bar atmosphere would have preferred to have been downstairs where I booked. Also bits of order kept getting forgotten and had to remind the staff.

Although staff were polite, and helpful; the wait time for food was pretty poor. Waited over an hour for food which wasn’t even that good when it finally came. Several items on the menu were not available on the day we visited, including drinks. Overall service the experience was poor, and I wouldn’t return

Not the best experience, food quite cold and dry, my girlfriend was up in the night and off work the next day with food poisoning :( Items missing from our order and quite cramped on our table despite booking ahead. Staff lovely but felt like they could have used a few more people on to keep up. Would have raised issues on the night but had to rush to get to another event. Sorry guys was expecting better from previous experiences.

We had to leave because you didn't have any food left! Luckily managed to get in somewhere else at short notice so we didn't go hungry.

Tacos were old. Fell apart and tasted awful. The filling was minimal. The padron peppers were not chargrilled or blackened which is they way they alway are everywhere. Everything was bland and had no flavour.

Great service, fresh and vibrant food, the only negative would be the small vegetarian/vegan options as they ran out of the only option I ordered so it left me with no other options compared to my meat eater family.

Waited far to long for almost every aspect of the experience, including: being greeted, having our orders taken, food arriving (1 hour for one steak), paying the bill - which we had to ask for and then walk to the bar to pay as no one would come over, even though some staff where clearly available (and stood with arms folded). When we mentioned that we were going here friends remark “el crapo” which we brushed off. But we now fully appreciate a respect that title. Will not be returning and there are many other places doing the same thing to a much better standard. Saying this, one or two staff members where clearly working hard, but their efforts where restricted by the lack of team work from other staff members.

Really poor service the lad serving us said the oven had been broken for the last 4 days we could only have fried food off the menu and hardly any choice. Really disappointed as if we had known before we had ordered a drink we would of gone elsewhere. If you knew the oven was broken for the last four days why didn’t you notify your customers that had booked. Very very poor service or at least knock something off the bill or provide a free drink.

The food was cheap enough, however the quality wasn't there. Unfortunately all our tacos were cold. A little disappointed after arriving with high expectations.

Booked table and got to restaurant and it wasn’t open due to works going on, no phone call or email to advise of this and messed our plans up for the evening. We had somewhere to be with a timeframe and this made it a nightmare. Very disappointed. I was gutted not to visit, but angered no one made a effort to contact us to make alternate arrangements

Can't fault the atmosphere of the place and the service was excellent and I would recommend it based on this, however, we were just let down a little by the quality of the food, hence the 3 stars for the food. Hopefully, it will be 5 stars across the board next time we visit.

We absolutely love this place and will be back as often as possible. We were served by a chap with short dark hair and an accent (possibly Spanish) who gave us OUTSTANDING service and a fair headed lad with glasses who was also excellent. Love your place!

Love the patatas bravas and the peach prosecco sangria. The burritos are a great size - i had the chicken one - would be great to have one with the patatas bravas sauce on! Nice, relaxed atmosphere with good background music and great, friendly service.

Went in with a big group from work, very quick service and good food, great value for money on Taco Tuesday! Order 10 they are little but what do you expect for £1 a taco. Probably pay another visit some point soon.
