We were greeted by very friendly and enthusiastic staff, Diogo & Nadia. Didn't really know what to expect with a Mexican theme, but Diogo our waiter was very helpful and helped us choose our dishes carefully. It did seem quite expensive but the quality and presentation was superb. Yes, We would go again, and we really are very particular where we go back to.

Seated us even though we were 30 mins late due to show running long. Service friendly and efficient despite the fact that kitchen was about to close. Mario gave great food recommendations and was spot on with his choices. Food is excellent, some of the best I've tasted in ages, tasty, full of flavour, but light and fresh, perfect post theatre fare. Cant recommend this restaurant highly enough, put it on your list for any weekend visit to London.

Three of us ate there at lunch before popping around to the Book of Mormon.

It was superb, the Masterchef Lamb Cutlets are spectacular and the smoked tuna, duck salad and sea bass were really excellent.

The dessert was the chocolate donuts which were perfect!

To top it all off Dani our server was wonderful

Good food and friendly staffs. A great place for group get togethers. Music was a bit too loud so when requesting for a table would be good to point out if needed a medium level noise so don't need to shout at one another. Overall happy with the place.

We were looking smfor somewhere close to the theatre and found this little gem on OpenTable. From the moment we stepped through the doors the service was impeccable, so friendly and attentive, our glass was never empty and the waiter helped us chose our food asking how spicy we liked things. The ambiance and decor also really nice.
The food was just amazing! Perfectly cooked and wonderful flavours, dish after dish of delights. We had the set menu with Nachos as an extra. This is tapas, so expect that, but portions were good. My only feedback that I could offer to improve my experience would be to have a salad garnish or potato dish recommend to eat with the main, we had stone bass, which was to die for, but it came on its own, if I'd have known I would have saved some of the duck salad to have with it. Next time I will order a potato dish to have with it, and there will definitely be a next time.
Other than that, it Wax pretty much perfect.

After a week of English fare, I was ready for some spice. I found this place and it did not disappoint. It would be better with a group, but I was alone. The food is served tapas style and comes as ordered. Do Not miss the guacamole it was outstanding and it reignited my palate. Overall a huge recommend.

Was there to celebrate my partner’s achievement at work. Delicious Mexican Peruvian dishes. It looks small portion but it’s very filling & delicious. We ordered 7 dishes between the two of us. We didn’t have time to have desserts as we’re due to see a show. Would definitely come back.

I won an afternoon tea voucher at one of their cocktail making classes. I did wonder if perhaps because I wasn’t paying for it then we may not get the full afternoon teas usually served but I need not have worried. We got shown the menu and staff explained it in full with substitutes for my husband who can’t eat chocolate. A large plate of sandwiches 2 scones with jam and cream then 3 cakes and a mouse each!! We were also offered free refills of tea.

Excellent food enjoyed the tapas concept best dishes included the sea bass and duck. Only gripe really was our table was situated very close to a DJ booth who we felt had no choice but to watch us eat, felt strange to have it so close to tables otherwise excellent food and desserts

The service is good, staff kind and friendly, presentation of the food amazing but the bill??? We paid nearly 50£ each for really small portions! We were all starving at the end. I was the organizer and, at the end, I was very imbarazed with the 11 friends. Nobody expected to pay that bill for really small portions. For instance asparagus are 4 little pieces maybe for a bird? Sorry but I will not come back anymore. Thank you

I wasn't aware it was a hotel restaurant when I booked, had I know I may well have booked elsewhere. The food was delicious, however it was extremely overpriced for what you received. Two bite sized tacos for £7!! Is just one example, when we left we were still hungry. The service was so good it was bordering on intrusive. I nearly asked the waitress if she'd like to sit with us, she was at our table so often!

Overall and enjoyable lunch. Food is delicious.

We opted for the set menu which is ok but I do not think all the dishes lend them selves to be shared. Oddly there are carbs on the set menu at all which is a bit odd especially for a sharing menu.

If indeed it is tapas then bring all the food at once not a course at a time.

Note they expect you to order your dessert at the same time as the other courses without knowing whether you want dessert!

Service is very good, fast efficient and very friendly.

We were recommended by our helpful server Mario on number of plates and good variations of dishes, we went for all his suggestions and it was great. We would have struggled to make choices otherwise! Right level of attention (we never had to wave to get the server’s attention, in busy restaurants this usually annoys me) was given, leaving us to chat and dine. Cocktails were also superb.

The only minor downside was that there was a big party in the same area and they were quite noisy. Luckily didn’t last throughout the whole meal. Other than that, the ambience and food were fantastic. We had a lovely time and hope to be back again.
