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!!

Excellent food but ambience suffers from it being situated in a big hotel. Service was good but a bit over attentive. They did very kindly though replace for free a drink which I’d knocked over.

One of the best Mexican restaurants in London. Don’t waste the opportunity to try the Chiles en Nogada (special Independence menu). Margaritas en cocktails are not to be missed.

I was a bit hesitant about booking after reading a review by a food critic who was quite critical of this restaurant, but he could not have been more wrong. I can only imagine he is unfamiliar with the cuisine or the chefs who take it to a higher level. All our dishes were perfectly prepared, and the service was warm and helpful. Among our favorite dishes were the Ceviche Vampiro, the lamb entree, the carnitas, and the creamy poblano rice. The Calavera margarita was perfect to accompany the meal! I don't write online reviews very often, but I felt compelled to do justice to this restaurant. Thanks for a wonderful meal during our trip to London!

Every staff was welcoming, hospitality was great, service was good. Food on the other hand, overprice, small portion, starter was 6 prawns that cost £12. Main was small, drinks are overprice, food overprice, desert, overprice... I was still hungry when i left. I ended up going to another place to get something hearty to eat.

The food and surrounding s were amazing however the music which started about 8pm on Saturday night was way too loud for a restaurant ! A DJ in a restaurant seems funny and the dance music was not in keeping with the food !

My 21 year old daughter selected the restaurant to celebrate her birthday. It was a brilliant choice, we all enjoyed everything we ordered. Every plate was prepared to perfection keeping the essence of the Mexican flavors and traditions while presenting every plate in the most tasteful and elegant way. From the overture, to the drama, to the main act all the way to the final curtain everything was an absolutely fantastic culinary experience. One that as born and raised Mexicans we truly enjoyed 5,000 miles away from our homeland. Thank you Martha Ortiz for truthfully representing the essence and flavors of the finest Mexican cuisine with such artistry.

Disappointed unfortunately. Had high hopes and really looked forward to taking my boyfriend for his birthday. We waited over an hour for our main and the birthday cake was delivered to the table behind by mistake. I didn’t make a fuss and I don’t usually complain but it wasn’t the best experience. L

Really great relaxed Sunday brunch. The food was good and margaritas brilliant. But, what made it was the service. Everyone was great from start to finish. The only negative about the place is the decor, just bizarre. Bit like being in BHS in 1975.
