Vibrant colours, rustic décor and lots of foliage create a fun, but relaxed, atmosphere inside the large restaurant.

Chilled, Brazilian music means the sights, sounds and smells of the restaurant truly capture the Latin American vibe.
A number of mouth-watering Latin specialities are available on a diverse and all-encompassing menu. Diners can enjoy a range a Spanish inspired tapas dishes to start, before moving on to main courses hand-picked from all corners of Latin America. Brilliant Brazilian flavours shine through the Cordero (a pan-fried, boneless rack of lamb in a sweet orange glaze); Mexican fans will love the wide selection of fajitas available, and the piri-piri cravings can be cured with the Blazing Bird, which is as hot as it sounds! Burgers, with a Latin twist, are available for those who prefer a slightly more classical dish, and a fantastic value kids menu is an option for families who visit. The food menu’s diversity is mirrored by the drinks menu, which is packed with cocktails inspired by Brazil, Mexico, Cuba, the Caribbean and beyond.
