Amazing authentic mexican

Honestly, the best salsa verde you will ever have. We can't stop going there. Please for your own sake... GET A SIGN OUT FRONT! More people need to know about this place.

It was a really hot day and the place is not air conditioned, so keep that in mind if you want someplace cool. I had a Mojito made with Tequila and it was great, a pickled cactus appetizer that was superb. Food was good! Presentation was nice. Dessert was excellent too. Authentic food if that's what you're after, like I... More

About a month ago, my boss brought La Hacienda's guac, salsa and chips to our staff meeting. It was all devoured in a matter of minutes and I have been thinking about it since. So today I decided to get the same for my lunch. I know, not a healthy lunch, but a treat just because I deserve it and... More

Visited Peterborough from Tampa and found this hidden gem of a restaurant on, trip advisor. If you are looking for a place to enjoy a quick bite, you may want to look elsewhere. This is a place for a relaxing casual lunch or dinner. Your patience will be rewarded with delicious food and good presentation. Server was pleasant and we... More

We had a group of 8 go to La Hacienda after it being recommended by somebody that works in Peterborough. We had recently been to another Mexican restaurant in Oshawa and were able to compare the food, atmosphere and service between both places. The bright points of La Hacienda were the nachos and sauces provided before dinner and the drink... More

Can't believe this lovely spot is not busier. The food is the real deal. Yummy, fresh and it just makes you feel good. Will be back. My freind said this this sopa might be the best food I've ever tasted! The service is outstanding as well.

My wife and I have been many times, the food is always great. Unfortunately, the last 3 visits saw the bill being very incorrect. We were charged for a bottle of wine when my wife had 1 glass.(we were also charged for the glass of wine)This could have been a mistake ,but ,the next time we went it happened again.... More

I think I may own a corner of the patio, for the amount of times my son,his dad and I (and anyone else from TO who visited me) ate here - since 2007, and I never get tired of eating what I think is the most authentic Mexican home cooking I have had outside of Mexico. Sure there is Tex-Mex,... More

Being a business traveller, I am often dining on my own, and it's interesting how some restaurants deal with a solo diner. This place had excellent food, and that part was good. The server wasn't very welcoming, and she clearly didn't want to spend much time on me. There were other tables, and the couples and groups got better attention.... More

The atmosphere is very nice here. I usually order the enchiladas (salsa Verde) but they've really gone up in price over the last year or two and the portion seems a bit smaller. It is served with a little side of their homemade refried beans which are very good but again the portion was very very small. The food is... More
