We booked at Alisitos for a much needed mother’s catch up away from kids. When we placed our order, apparently it didn’t go through the system… an hour later, we were still waiting. There were apologies but even after our orders did go through, it wasn’t correct with the sour cream, gaucamole etc extras between myself and my friends. No courtesy dishes or drinks were offered by means of apology for our late dinners (we were starving). Not sure we will be back.

Food ordered by adults was ok, but the kid's nacho's were awful. they came with a smokey vegan cheese (not requested), a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of chopped tomato. weirdest thing to serve to a kid...

Service was friendly enough but really lack-lustre.

Awesome! Great food, well priced, the live music was fantastic.
Only negative was potentially they needed more staff on as it took a while to serve food and get drinks.

For older clients who do not drink alcoholic beveridges, coffee was not offered. I understand that due to covid we had a limited choice of meals. La Combination was a dish we have had previously at other restaurants was not on the menu.

We had a lovely evening at Alisitos. The food was good, but my only complaint would be it was not hot enough. I could see if it was hotter it would be delicious. But it was basically cold-warm which was disappointing!
I may give them a second chance.

The quality of food was pretty good. The service people were overall ok. The bartender literally spilled an entire drink on my legs and didn't apologise or offer any reparations. Pretty much this place is a trashy bar moreso than a Mexican restaurant.

We had an unfortunate experience this weekend where the restaurant lost our order not once but twice as their printer ran out of paper in the kitchen and our orders (plural!) did not make it to the kitchen. Our small children (3 and 6) waited over an hour for their food. Probably the most disappointing piece was that they kept telling us that the kids food would be pushed to the front of the line, but then they lost the order a second time and not once did the wait staff come out and check on other tables to ensure their orders hadn't been missed. There were so many people patiently waiting for lost orders, the least the staff could have done was to check rather than ignore the problem. It was a cool place and probably just an unfortunate situation but it wasn't handled well.

Alisitos was recommended to me by a customer at my own venue for their margaritas and they definitely did not disappoint. My only issue with their cocktails was they go down too easy and I want to drink them all. I would love to go back there again, especially for their Mexican Mule and for their Spicy Margarita, and I'm not sure if it was the tequila shots on my tongue but their Espresso Martini was the smoothest ive ever tasted. The food arrived in good time and was quite tasty, the waitstaff were lovely and checked in regularly, and were very patient with our one drink and wasted friend. 10/10 would love to go back!

Food is good, but the service could be a little more switched on. This time I ate at the restaurant and they forgot to make my food. Last time I ordered takeaway and when I got home I realised I have someone else's food and had to return to get my order.. maybe I'm just the one unlucky customer.

The food was flavorless. After we asked for salt, limes, sour cream and coriander it was much better. Everything was so close to being nice but just missed the mark.
We ordered a jug of cocktail (which said 5 glasses) it half filled 4. When we complained, they begrudgingly bought out another glass (half filled).
The atmosphere was nice and the decor was good.
Such a shame as we have had takeaways from here and it's always been lovely.

We were a party of 3 and ordered 12 tacos in total, which included: fish, Mediterranean pork, spicy chicken, crumbed tofu and potato. In general the tacos lacked seasoning, even the jalapeños on the tofu had no kick to it. We asked for some sauces (which we’d normally get a selection of in other Mexican restaurants) and only got one bottle of what we think was sweet green chilli? But even the sauce was bland, just a tad sweet and not much flavour... Some of the soft taco shells weren’t soft at all. We still enjoyed the meal but felt it was a missed opportunity as perhaps just a bit of salt would have made it all taste much better. Perhaps the only one we actually enjoyed taste-wise were the spicy chicken tacos. Other tacos tasted like they were missing something. We also ordered a side of tortilla chips with salsa and again, the salsa was bland... we couldn’t even taste the tangy tomatoes in it like we normally can with salsa. And I think we got the bottom bits of the pack of chips because we had just a couple of good full pieces up top and then the bowl was basically filled with tiny broken up pieces underneath; you can imagine this makes it really hard to dip the chips in the salsa? This experience was a tad disappointing on so many fronts. Not sure if we’ll be coming back again.

Would change the soft drink, it had no bubbles and tasted like water. And would add more ingredients into the tacos. But other than that, everything else was delicious, would come back.
