    I wanted to love this place, truly. I love Mexican food and was raised on Mexican and Tex-mex food. Beautiful venue. Great location. Maybe we got it on an off night (it was relatively busy), but the service was really really poor. After we ordered the guacamole, it took at least 20 minutes to get anything. And it was VERY salty. I know good guac, and have had it the way they prepare it many times before, but there was way too much Tajin and salt. Then we ordered our tacos, and it took almost an hour to get 2x orders of 2 tacos. Lobster tacos were pretty solid, but not like overwhelmingly amazing. Brisket was also pretty good, but again, salty. A side order of corn was so salty we could barely eat it. And this is a man who LOVES salt. We sat right next to the kitchen and could feel the stress of the busy night, so maybe other nights will be better. We got there for the first seating, and were meant to leave by 8pm, but at 8 still had no food, so I don't know what happened to the people who were meant to have our table. Also, it's hella expensive for what it is. Margaritas are 139 rands, and cocktails go up from there. Guacamole 119 Rands. Half price margaritas for happy hour make them reasonably priced, but not happy hour priced, so maybe this is a happy hour drinking place rather. Like I said, maybe an off night, but we paid R1000 and then I went home and had some cereal.

    There should be a rating for the drinks... it was AMAZING! Loved the Marguerita. The manager was so friendly and really cared that our experience was good. I already booked another visit. Thank you!

    Super grateful to have real mexican cuisine in cape town. I wasnt a huge fan of the sweet/fruity components (watermelon/pomegranite etc) that were in a lot of the dishes. I personally enjoy more pure savoury dishes and flavours. The cotton candy at the end was a surprise and was fun, however, I think it would have been more appropriate to have a lime sorbet or something as a sweet, I am sure you have plenty of lime rind left available from the gauc making! I think a sopa azetca with queso fresco, and a couple more mole's (mole colorado/verde) would be real standout addition to the menu.
