Summary

“Sitting by the windows on a summer’s evening makes for a great pre-theatre outing” at this American-owned Mexican in Covent Garden. “Top frozen margaritas” and “guacamole made at your table” add to the experience.

Summary

This Theatreland Mexican, part of a US chain, “manages to be both big and stylish” and is a “pretty good option for vegetarians”. “The food is very fresh” and “satisfactory without being inspiring”, but everyone loves the “fun guacamole made at the table”.

Summary

Limited feedback on this heart-of-Theatreland outpost of the relatively upmarket US Mexican chain. For fans, “the guacamole made at the table is fab” and emblematic of the “good fun and food”, but doubters “don’t understand the crowds, given bland dishes and (perhaps understandably) under-pressure service”.

Summary

“Upmarket” Mexican operation in Covent Garden, with “very fresh-tasting” dishes (guacamole a speciality); reporters do gripe however that it’s “pricey”.

"This has gone up market at the expense of flavour and value. Blue tacos resembled soggy cardboard. Such a sad decline for what was a gem."
