My experience here was horrendous. I will never go back here again, it is genuinely the worst restaurant I have ever been in.
Upon arriving we were greeted by a really nice waiter and genuinely I thought we had picked a good place to eat. He gave us a drinks menu and told us what he recommended, so naturally we went for the drinks he pointed out. However, when they came they were so bland and it was basically a shot of gin and raspberry purée. We asked if we could have a different drink, as they were so bland and tasted awful and they gave us the menu back to get different drinks - which I appreciated.
After the drinks fiasco we ordered food and genuinely thought what we ordered looked nice on the menu. For starter we ordered the nachos and it literally looked like someone had chucked nachos on the plate - squirted tomato sauce on them and melted some cheese on top, along with some jalapeños out of the jar. You should never judge a book by its cover and with that in mind we tried it. In this case, we realised it was just as bad as it looked. The nachos weren't bad but the cheese was not melted AT ALL and it was stone cold underneath. You could actually see where the cheese hadn't been melted.
We asked for it to be taken back because it was cold and the waitress took it. Upon her return she told us that it was cold because the guacamole was fresh and it meant that it would be cold. Umm? What!? We literally just said to them that at this point we wanted to leave and we would pay for the drinks but not the food because we had one nacho each and couldn't eat any more. Thankfully they told us that they would write off the whole bill but even so I feel like that had to be done after such a horrendous experience.
Definitely avoid, we learnt the hard way.
