We came here for dinner on a recent trip to Peterborough. The restaurant has no parking. You either park on the street or there are a couple of municipal parking lots within walking distance. (Tip: one of those municipal lots gives you the first hour free, so by the time we got back to the xar after eating our parking... More

Had a very nice meal here. The food was good and quite authentic. I saw a few things on the menu that you don't usually see outside Mexico. The restaurant was short on wait staff the night we were there so service was very slow. Still glad we went.

Very nice selection of food. They didn't have any pinto Grigio, but the Azteca soup was very good. The fajitas were ok, but the tortillas lacked tasted, so they should have been served with cheese or some extra spice! The waitress wasn't too friendly, and seemed annoyed of us. We had great shots of tequila and a pretty good mojito.... More

We loved the authentic Mexican food. It tasted amazing. The waitress was very helpful as well since we needed a bit of guidance in what to order. We highly recommend this place!

If you are looking for authentic Mexican food then this is where you will want to go...the owner/chef is herself a Mexican and brings to us her native cuisine ! There is outdoor seating which you will want to enjoy in the warm summer months [no a/c inside].... A Mexican gastronomic delight ! Go and enjoy !

About the size of a really fat middle finger : ) 2 had a mashed potato filling and the other 2 had beans (refried, maybe). They were topped with crema or sour cream and a very... More

The restaurant was clean, food was good. The waitress was great to help us out in ordering as we weren't sure what to try. A piece of Mexico right in downtown Peterborough. Will be sure to go back!

The food here is real Mexican food, not that Taco bell crap. There is a wide selection and is suitable for vegetarians. The decor is nice and staff is fast and friendly

We were wandering around downtown Peterborough looking to try out a new place for lunch on a sunny day. There was La Hacienda on Hunter Street in an area with lots of restaurants. Liking Mexican food we gave it a try. What a pleasant surprise in a city that needs more "international" restaurants. The food was truly Mexican with a... More
