I have passed Mango a few times, when walking to the West End and I recently saw a voucher deal for here (two burgers and a cocktail for £12) which I had to get as it was a very good deal.

On entering we were greeted and shown to our table, and had a look about and at the menu.

For me this place had a really good atmosphere about it, you had Latin American music playing in the background, everyone was having a nice time, you had a TV that was showing football and WWE.

One part that was very cool was at every both, there was a plug socket on the wall. This had normal plug points and a USB point which was a nice touch.

The Food :

Beef Burrito £n/a as had voucher (normally £8.90)
Wheat flour tortilla wrapped with meat, refried beans, lettuce, guacamole, cheese and sour cream.

I have had a few Burritos in the last few months, so I thought I would try one from here. On arrived it looked very nice, and it smelled really good.

At first bite I was a little puzzled as I was expecting it to have rice inside, but I am guessing not all Burritos need to have this.

Overall this was just OK for me, there were a few very chewy bits of beef but the majority were all nice and tender and the flavour was nice. The dips really did add to the flavour, my favourite was the sour cream I felt this worked very well with this.

The waitress who was very helpful tonight told me about the 3 cocktails I could choose from, so I told her I had a sweet tooth and to surprise me and she brought this one.

So I was with my friend tonight and there were two items on the dessert list that caught our eye, so we decided to order both and try half of each.

Desserts :

Churros con Chocolate £4.50
Very Latin American sweet snack to dip in to hot chocolate

I wanted something sweet tonight, and this is a very sweet dessert.

I have had this before in many restaurants and loved it, and tonight I enjoyed it and with the dip it made it that extra sweet that I needed.

Torta de Queijo con Mango £4.50
Fresh Home Baked Mango cheesecake

This was very nicely presented, and I couldn’t wait to dig in.

It was a very nice cheesecake, with a very nice Mango sauce.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 4
Presentation : 4.5

Overall :

Overall I really enjoyed my first visit here, food wise for me it was nice but atmosphere and cocktails that’s where it won for me.

I would like to go back and try another dish, and more of the cocktails.

As I said at the start of this post, I really felt relaxed and really enjoyed the atmosphere here. The music was at a perfect level, and the service, decor etc were all very good.
