It is an extremely versatile restaurant, with the scope to satisfy couples looking for an intimate meal or a large celebration. The food follows the same suit as the restaurant décor with a vast selection of fresh and vibrant dishes on offer.
On the menu you will find Latin cuisines packed with flavour and character. Stand out dishes include the delicious Brazilian Xinxim Chicken, a dish apparently favoured by footballer Pele. This delicious dish includes chicken in a rich, creamy peanut and crayfish sauce that comes in a ceramic dish with its own candle underneath to keep it fresh and bubbling for you. It comes served with rice, sweet plantain, fine green beans and coconut forofa to sprinkle over the top. Other classic favourites include their Famous Fajitas with a choice of fillings, superb Tapas and sharing dishes and of course, the Big Burrito.
