Great setting for authentic and delicious Mexican food, with one of the best margaritas we’ve gotten our hands on in Australia. Helpful staff and fair prices helped make it a fantastic experience that we will look forward to enjoying again in the future.

Food and drinks were delicious however the service took way longer than it should have - they should have kept the “order online from the table” thing as the waitresses were so frantically busy, also it’s really loud so hard to have an actual conversation. Maybe not a date environment but rather for drinks with friends?

Hi Zara, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. Sorry for the service not being where it should have been on your recent visit. Overwhelming feedback from our customers was that people didn't like the mobile ordering system but it is still available so you know for next time if you want to use it. Cheers, Simon Hm

Really lovely food, house made corn chips (I think) and a fresh taste.
Margarita Monday was delicious and our waitress was just the right amount of attentive. 👍👍

Tried Hail Mary on suggestion of friend. Not disappointed. Food was great and lytchee capiroska was tasty but small 😉

Thanks for the feedback. Glad we lived up to expectations. All our cocktails are made with a standard cocktail pour of 60ml of alcohol. Caprioskas by nature don't indlude any mixers perhaps that why you perceived it as "small". They definitely pack a punch though. Cheers, Simon Hm

Amazing food and venue. Unfortunately we had a table of 9 and the food came at completely seperate times. I had finished my starters and mains before the entree even came for half the table.

Hi Jonny, Thanks for taking the time to leave us feedback. We certainly aim to get everyone's meals out at the same time however it is challenging for larger tables especially when it's so busy during school holiday period so apologies for the error on this occasion. Thanks, Hm

Loved the food, but very , very noisy.
Service was ok, we had better service there before. Not really that good

Hi Shulzi, Thanks for taking the time to leave us feedback. Pleased to read you enjoyed the food. For customers who are seeking a quieter dining experience we definitely reccomend visiting us early between 5-6pm before we fill up. We are training a entirly new floor team at the moment and it's certainly a challenge doing so during school holiday's so apoligies for the service not being where it was on your last visit however we are working on that and improving every day. Cheers, Hm

The tacos were not what we hoped for. The fish one was covered in way too much thick batter and the pork belly was very fatty. Less is more …you don’t need to put so much in them just make it cleaner and healthier to eat.

Responded on 4 July 2021

Hi Cazza, Thanks for taking the time to leave us feedback. Our fish shouldn't be too heavily battered so i'll definitely look into this. Pork Belly is always going to be that way by its very nature however next time for a leaner optioon I would suggest trying something like our chipotle chicken flavour. Thanks again for your feedback. Simon

The food and staff were amazing!! It was a great atmosphere and the place is so cute!
Only thing is they forgot to put through a order and got our taco order a little messed up, but the things we got instead was amazing! I would definitely come back here again to try what we missed!

We love hail mary and come often however this night they had said they were getting rid of the table things where you can order yourself and are doing table service for small tables. Didn’t bother us at first until we sat there, for 20 minutes without any table service. We ended up asking if we could have one of the table order things anyway because we were starving and being regulars we knew what we were going to order the second we sat down lol. The food was great as always but they seemed understaffed, especially with how slow peoples drinks were coming out during the happy hour. Will be back because we do love it here and this was the only time we have had a slightly negative experience. Probably will just ask for the table order thing straight up next time, and i think it’s something a lot of other people enjoy too so please don’t get rid of them completely.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us feedback. Dissapointing that you've decided to leave us a negative review after one bad experience, as a regular customer. In the last week we've had to hire a whole new floor team due to some bad timing with visas etc. Training a new team is a significant challenge and we are doing our best to get service back to where it should be. Unfortunately overwhelming feedback was that people wanted table service back hence the switch from mobile ordering.

Nice ambience, service was outstanding. The meals are more meat with small amount of salad. We are meat eaters however found it was a bit too much. The calamari was to die for.
Nice but wouldn’t rush back.

What a little gem! I found this place by accident after the place I had wanted to eat at was booked out. The decor is all very cute and the place had a lovely ambience. The food was amazing, we had a selection of things between a group of us and I can honestly say I cant wait to come back! The Coconut Margaritas were exceptional as well!

A great place to have birthdays and parties. I love the way you order through your phone so there’s no lining up at the counter and you can order more drinks whenever, not to mention you don’t have to worry about who is paying for what at the end. And the halloumi tacos and margis are 10/10

The ordering system and lack of table service is such a let down and really takes away from the dining experience. Margaritas were very underwhelming and food lacks and real depth or flavour.
Staff very friendly when we did have interaction and decor is lovely.
