I went out to catch up with a friend and had heard that the food was amazing, which it was. However, the service was almost nonexistent after we had ordered our food. There was wax from the candles in my drink and no compensation was offered. The service was the most disappointing part of the night.

The service was terrible, our table outside and was ignored for most of the night we had to walk up to the bar to ask for a drinks. The staff were very rude and abrupt. Some of our party left early (they paid). And we were charged again for their items. One of my friends came back in and got some of the money back but we were over charged by about $120. Another one of my friends called and didn’t get a call back. So again terrible service. We came in for my birthday and it was very disappointing to see that kind of service. Every other time I have been in it has been amazing. Your food and drinks were great is it’s a shame the service didn’t match it. We also work at apple and I came in with a party of 14 people from work who are frequent visitors there. Needless to say that everyone we work with has heard about what happened and won’t be visiting again.

Arrived 15 minutes early to have a drink at their Bon Bon Bar next door.
Our table was already ready but we spent our time having very unique Margaritas in the ambience of the bar which set the tone for the impeccable service and energetic atmosphere for the remainder of our evening.
The Pork Belly was amazing and the combinations in the Premium Fish and Rib Eye Tacos was perfect.
The Sangria brought it all together.
Highly recommended.

Bonita Bonita is one of those local restaurants that everyone raves abut, and I am happy to say that it lives up to the hype! An authentic & creative Mexican Restaurant with a funky vibe, the staff are exceptional with an extensive knowledge on their food & their drinks! A great night for our little book club, I will definitely be back.

Such a great night at Bonita Bonita. We went there for a girls dinner night and food was incredible as always, cocktails were yum and the service was fantastic. We had a male waiter looking after us and he was great. Helped us decide what to order, was attentive and socialable with our table but not too over bearing

While the food & drinks are quite nice be careful when you book in for their advertised Taco Thursday that they don’t stick you in the Bonita Bonita section rather than BonBon Bar part. They state $5 tacos & $5 sangria on social media & on menu but you won’t get that if they seat you closer to Bonita Bonita (the tacos in both sections are the same too). Pretty disappointing way to end a night finding out that but plenty of other good Mexican on the GC that do taco Tuesdays much better :-)

The food was amazing and served promptly, we had an earlyish booking. The sangria was delicious! loved the taco's.
We were seated inside, next visit I will ask for outside. Inside was quite noisey sadly with very dim light. Hard to read the menu at times.
But overall it was a lovely night out trying all the food with friends.

delicious food, very enjoyable experience, lovely to try a different style of Mexican other than nachos and tacos, although these are still available. Helpful staff, good table service. Quite pricey for small serves, being mostly share plates it added up pretty quick.
