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 !

Ordered the Tacos Dorados yesterday for lunch. Never had them before.They looked like what I would call a "Taquito"...rolled up tortilla and deep fried. 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

We've come here several times over the years, and enjoy it. My teenage daughter and I recently had lunch there, as she enjoys the tinga meal, each time we go there. I ordered the consome de pollo. It was tasty, but not much to it. It was mostly the broth and it comes with tinga in it, but a very... More

We visit here often, sopa Azteca is fantastic every time .. had many items from the menu and have yet to be disappointed with my meal ... however .. prepare in some cases to be in for a wait. The service tends to be slow, occasionally elusive and sometimes uninterested. I have had to go up to the bar every... More

Been there a few times now. The food is great - probably the best Mexican food in Peterborough (although that's not saying much since there are so few Mexican restaurants in the area). I can't help but be turned off by the service we received during my last visit. It was slower than slow. The server was not only inattentive,... More
