Amazing food, the gold grasshopper was definitely an experience. However, it was incredibly quiet for a Friday night and quite overpriced for the food quality to be honest.

We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The overall experience was really good: the food is authentic Mexican with a 2/3 course offer for a reasonable price. The staff is well trained and was keen to accomplish some particular requests (gift, cake, speed). We recommend this restaurant for special occasions or to enjoy true Mexican flavors.

Great Mexican food with a gourmet twist. I have been previously for the brunch and I think this is much better value than the a la carte dinner menu. The wine that I chose for a glass wasn't what they originally offered, and when I pointed that out they brought another, which at least was the right grape although not the wine on the menu which I thought was odd. Service was otherwise very good.

The food was OK. Nothing special apart from the lamb which was delicious. Was expecting the food to be better.
Service was very good.
The place was half empty on a Thursday night. That tells you something.
Will not be back.

Meh. Food was ok. Setting was ok. Atmosphere was ok. Don't regret going but wouldn't return. They also gave us the wrong bill which was£60 more than it should have been but they changed this when informed

Went there for my wife’s birthday and the ambience was perfect. Buzzing and lively with very friendly staff.
2 things though:
- had to wait too long for drinks; and
- being a vegetarian, everything we tried was nice but lacking a bit of flavour (add a pinch of salt and it was delicious!)

Really enjoyed a meal here and will be back. Loved the presentation, ambiance and service. Whilst I was expecting a bit more flavour punch from the appetisers/starter, the main of duck mole was worth five stars alone.

Quite simply a fantastic dining experience that surpassed all expectations! The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgable, the Tequila based drinks were extraordinarily good, the food wonderful and beautifully presented, and every drink/dish that arrived seemed to surpass the last, which became something of a running joke! The decor was fun, and the ambience was engaging and lively but quiet enough to talk normally. Both myself and my colleagues plan to return very soon. An unusual and surprising experience for a restaurant co-located in a hotel. I highly recommend it to anyone!

Very good food but slow. Also had to point out to a waiter his rear end was in my wife’s dinner when he was assisting the neighbouring table! You can eat like this for far far less. Best to come here when it’s someone else’s money.

An overall very pleasant experience. Definitely one of the better upscale Mexican restaurants, however the tamal wasn’t great (the “dough” was too thick) and the carnitas could have been a bit juicier but were very tasty anyway.

Would come back!!

The best mexican food I’ve ever had in my life!!! authentic food with a slight modern twist that works SO well. Would 100% recommend trying their margaritas, the smoothest!
