The food is Latin American and ranges from the classic Fajitas and Burritos that you’d expect to see on the menu to more exotic dishes such as Henrique Rapadura (a spiced Lamb dish) – a personal favourite.

With fabulous decor – a mix of turquoise green, flamingo pink and Aztec bronze – one could be forgiven for thinking you were soaking up the atmosphere in Rio (especially after sampling their cocktail menu at Happy Hour!). There is always a great buzz and it’s the perfect place for a sophisticated date night or a more relaxed evening catching up with friends.
