My friend and I were very much looking forward to Mexican Fiesta. Dinner, however, did not live up to our expectations.
The starter, Sopa Azteca, was served without comment by the waiting staff. It was an unremarkable pureed soup, mainly tasting of tomato, chilli and salt, with what seemed to be thin slices of toasted tortilla chips and chunks of avocado floating near the bottom. These additional ingredients should have sat on top of the soup so that we could see what we were eating.
A very small bowl of guacomole and about 10 purple (and white) corn chips arrived with the main course. These were left in the middle of our table of five (three seperate groups of diners) with no introduction. A desert bowl size serving of salad was also brought to our table. Assuming these dishes were to share between the two diners at the end of our table, we informed the waiters that we hadn't been served yet. They replied that the dishes already on the table were to serve all five of us, and that there was no more guacomole left. It was the first time I had ever felt as though I had been underfed at a restaurant.
Finally, a serving of two small black bean tacos were served to each diner. Like the other food, it tasted ok but not especially exciting or out of the ordinary.
For £22 Mexican Fiesta did not deliver what we expected: adult-sized poritions of exciting and delicious food, presented compitently by waiting staff.
