Just past the old, but still in use, library you will find this lively corner spot.

Bright pops of enticing colour come into play when you order the calamari and chorizo taco, which goes down easy with a splash of homemade pomegranate and thyme iced tea. It’s best to come along with many mouths to share with as the nacho starter portion is so big you can take the leftovers home with you. They have all the usual Mexican fare including a pulled pork burrito that’s all dressed up in coriander salsa and ready to go. But the tacos is where they shine, to the point that you can even build your own taco with their selection of proteins and drunken beans and opt in classics such as pineapple chilli glaze and cheddar cheese. But best you leave some space for the criss-cross stacks of churros for dessert.

There may be a tight selection of wines and hard liquor choice but as one might expect they have 9 different types of tequila. All of which make their way into their bevy of tequila heavy cocktails – along with their one lonely gin cocktail friend.

The food and drinks come fast enough that you feel attended but not rushed out of place. The servers are knowledgeable and eager enough to bring you another round of shots whenever needed.

The inside is tight and cute but the space really comes alive in the warmer months when the tables that spill outside are full of spirited chatter.

Best for...
A weeknight hang with friends.

    If you haven't been to this Mexican treasure you are missing out! Proper, good quality Mexican food with well-informed waiters, good service and a feast for the senses. Watch out, those chilli poppers are hot but the churros with white chocolate dip...
