    The ambience was nice and so were the drinks. However, the food options weren't really a good value for money. Very limited options for vegans and vegetarians in feed me menu. The churos served as dessert were very undercooked. I would cone back if there were more options available.

    The food was fantastic snd very well presented. Staff were amazing. No delay in getting drinks. Often when you go to places that include drinks package they are very slow getting them to you. But not in this case - never had an empty glass!! Would definitely go again.

    Service and staff were very lovely. We chose the feed me option. But we were highly disappointed when after it was requested at the time of booking and to the server soon arrival, that my partner was allergic to nuts. Yet a main meal was brought out and announced it had nuts in it but my partner was told to just steer clear of this dish. The meal should’ve been substituted for something else to avoid any nut contamination at all. Was only when we brought it up the staff again and had to ask for another dish that had no nuts at all. Really loved the idea of the 100% gluten free but needs attention as we did it a little bland. Really atmospheric resturaunt and very funky music and drink choices. The food just needs attention.

    We were here once again for the Bottomless Brunch. Our last visit was not that great due to the girl assigned as our wait person. This time it was like it used to be. Friendly, helpful staff and great food and drinks. My daughter is coeliac and never has an issue with the gluten free food served her. We had a very enjoyable time.

    The service and drinks qere great. Food was below average during the bottomles. Poorly made and poor taste and quality. I have eaten here before food was much better but I got hair in my food so I decided to try it one more time after a year break. This time food was barely edible but drinks were ok.

    The restaurant is dark and moody but full of charm. Tour food was juicy and succulent with the chicken chilaquiles roja being the highlight, and the zucchini taco runner up and an unexpected dark horse. There are good options for those who enjoy their on the milder end of spicy.

    Service wasn’t very good. My party asked for an eta on our drinks as we’d been waiting a very long time since ordering and the girl dismissed us and told another girl to “deal with” us. Frankly it was very unprofessional and rude. The food and ambience was great. If you want to go there for the vibes then absolutely it was great. Biria tacos were definitely worth it

    First time visit after wanting to try for a while. Food was OUTSTANDING. Every dish even better than the last. Got the Feed Me option on a Friday night. We left with very full bellies! Staff were so warm and welcoming. The space is small but they have great system and food comes quick. Will be back!

    Food was delicious! We were sat upstairs so don’t think we experienced the full ambience. We picked the Feed Me option and we loved the different foods we were given, however we added up the prices of the food we got and it was cheaper if we had just chosen them separately from the Feed Me. So, I think we would have had a more cost-effective experience if we just picked the food we want. And was seated in the actual dining area as opposed to the entrance before the stairs. Otherwise, food was fantastic and service was amazing.

    Food and cocktails were delicious, only thing that killed our vibe was the attitude one of the waiters gave us. We had to ask for a straw each time we got a drink and the attitude she gave us made it seem like the biggest inconvenience for her, there was only 3 other tables mind you, wasn’t busy at all but acted like they were completely overbooked and understaffed. Overall, the food was amazing and drinks hit the spot, well worth the $75pp for bottomless brunch.

    Came here for my birthday. Everything was great. Two things though - it was a super hot day and the aircon wasn’t working so they had a small fan - we were all melting. Second thing is that it’s a Mexican restaurant and they didn’t have margaritas on their bottomless drinks menu - what Mexican place doesn’t have margaritas. It was all I wanted! Anyway food was pretty good and the waitress looking after us was good.

    Overall a good experience. Service was okay, main issue was nobody explained the food items. Plates were dropped and the staff were off onto the next task. As we had the feed me option, made it interesting trying to guess what the dishes were. Food and Ambiance were great, the corn in particular was amazing. Sitting at the bar was nice watching all the cocktails being made, but the chairs without back support made it difficult to stay longer. Keen to come back with a larger group!
