what the critics say


TimeOut - 3/5

Sunday, September 19, 2010 - This bar is a temple to tequila with 38 different bottles all of which are made with one hundred per cent agave and feature blanco (white), reposado and anejo varieties. You can sip the better ones neat, but it'd be remiss to ignore the menu of marvellous and classic Margaritas of which Tommy's Margarita was the pick...Bottled Mexican beers include the clean and crisp Pacifico Clara, the nutty Bohemia and Negra Modelo, which is maltier and with more mouthfeel. In terms of food, you can corral big and generous burritos, tortas and tacos from the kitsch Baja Californian restaurant above.

This Is London

This Is London - 3/5

Thursday, June 03, 2010 - The main courses - a sharing mix, as suggested by the very best waitress in town - were exceptional. Crispy tacos served with fish, chicken or beef filling, and the usual crispy lettuce/sour cream combo. The soft, rolled burritos were really something - beef especially good, I'm told - and memorable for the fantastic couple of dollops of black bean concoction that came with them. The margharitas were individually made before our eyes, and all the better for it. Perfect sweet and sour, lime, salt and tequila mix.

Hands down this place wins the prize for the grubbiest, sloppiest waitresses I've ever seen (tracksuit bottoms, ripped tights, greasy hair) - it really makes you wonder about the state of the kitchen. Wine (£20) was undrinkable and food was expensive and below par, a dismal experience all round.

Decided to visit with a colleague this Friday lunch time.

We were greeted instantly by a waiter who was quickly able to locate a table for us. We looked at the menu and decided to order the lunch time specials (tortilla chips and burritos) as they were advertised as ready within 15 minutes.

Our order was taken promptly and we waited, and waited and waited. 20 minutes into waiting we asked the waitress where our food was, she informed us in a plain manner that it was coming. After a further 10 minutes some extremely stone cold tortilla chips were delivered along with an abrupt sorry. The salsa was flavoursome but the tortilla chips were too cold to make the meal edible. No attempt to either warm them or even present them at room temperature. I do not understand how a cold virtually pre-prepared meal takes a minimum of 30 minutes to prepare.

Once finished we waited 10 minutes and asked about our main meal, (since there was a delay in delivering the tortilla chips to us surely the rest of the meal was already being prepared) we were informed it was coming shortly, after a further 5 minutes we asked again and were greeted with the same response. A further 5 minutes later and we simply walked out of the door.

After some 55 minutes in the restaurant our only memory is that of cold tortilla chips, appalling service, and clearly no interest in getting anything to our table. Please also note the place was only 2/3rds full.

Avoid! Avoid! Avoid!
