Mexican inspired restaurant & basement bar, set in the heart of Hertford

Our food is all about layering flavours. Each single ingredient might have a simple taste, like the earthiness of corn the meatiness of beans, the tanginess of raw onion or the heat of the chili salsa, but the slow build up will result in a dish that assaults the taste buds. This food grips all the senses, whether it’s the crunch of the crisp lettuce, the smell of spiced meat, the soft yielding bite into corn or the sight of all the colours at play together on your plate.

Loved it!!!!!! I have been looking forward to eating in this restaurant and it didn't disappoint!! As a very picky vegetarian it made a wonderful change to go to a restaurant that offers delicious veggie food - instead of a boring after-thought option. It has a very laid back vibe about the place; eating with your fingers is expected and there is an extensive cocktail menu that has to be sampled!! The staff were very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the food - they were upbeat and happy...no miserable waitresses greeting you here! Really loved it and cannot wait to return!!


We came here for a birthday meal with a large table of 14 people. I was so impressed from the minute we arrived, the staff were incredibly attentive and welcoming. We started in the bar downstairs for drinks, loved the decor! The food was really good, everyone really enjoyed it. They even catered for a specific allergy diet well and the manager came over and went through the menu with the diner. Service from the waitresses was first class, everyone on our party will be returning soon.


London cool in Hertford... Best food I have had in a very long time, it really is an experience to eat there and you can tell the owners care about this. Pro tip - they have a bar downstairs (with candle shrines and the best toilets ever!) for cocktails after dinner mmmm!
