This self-styled ‘gourmet’ cantina tries hard to please, with consistently praised service & a menu that tackles authenticity head on – though we’re not sure how many Mexican families regularly eat honey prawn salad with walnuts & goats’ cheese. Guacamole prepared fresh at your table in chunky stone bowls is a nice touch, while nachos, quesadillas, enchiladas & grills are all present, although not always correct: tender pork tamales with a judicious hit of chipotle spice have been let down by dull ‘Mexican’ rice & ‘school dinner’ vegetables. Portions are hefty & prices are high – a policy that extends to the drinks list with its mega margaritas, interesting wines & beers. The interiors smack of a hotel dining room, although there’s ample space to accommodate those turned away from nearby hotspots.
