I used to love Pancho Villa's but the change of menu has really put me off. Please bring back the old menu. Change is great when it's for the better but, for me, I preferred it as it was before.

Food was tasty however the portions were ridiculously small, even the waiter said an adult would really need 2 or three main courses. At £8,95 for my fajitas the price was normal for a business lunch and to pay for three mains would price the restaurant WAY out of its price league. It was almost completely deserted with only two...

Visted pancho villa as we were in the area and fancied something different. Pretty happy alround with our service and meal Found that meal was just the right amount to fill us both and not to much. Also really enjoyed the cocktails as well. All and all pretty happy with the visit and would be coming back again

After previous meals at this restaurant we had expected the same as usual, which was a good value for money Mexican taste! However, the menu now seems to have drastically changed into that of a Spanish type tapas restaurant. The portions were incredibly small, microwaved or re heated, and lacked the Mexican imagination that the restaurant once had in abundance.... More

We enjoyed lunch and drinks mid week when the restaurant was quiet. Well located on Bell Street in the very popular Merchant City area of the City. The restaurant offers a wide choice of Antojitos, Burritos, Tacos, Enchiladas, Fajitas and house dishes. We ended our visit with wonderful margaritas setting us up for the rest of the day in this...

Went for works party, drinks constantly being served. Took 1 1/2 hours until food showed up with 3 meals missing and all we got was "oh we are sorry, it's a busy night, here is the bill for the food we have served" Not forgetting the amount of drinks that had to be paid for during the long wait... Beware!!!

The staff are terrible and the speed of service is painfully slow. The portions are tiny and afterwards me and my friends after paying a hefty bill were all left starving.
