Had the Mexican salad that I mistakenly thought was a taco salad. The only Mexican aspect was a dollop of sour cream and guacamole. Chorizo was sliced like salami. Not impressed at all, but maybe because I was expecting more tex-Mexican. However I've had Mexican food in other European cities that tasted great. Maybe enchiladas or burritos would have been...

We had some disappointing & over priced meals in Killarney so we were really keen to find somewhere good. We walked up the lane and were very surprised to find Casita Mexicana. The staff were lovely and helpful, the service was excellent and the food was fantastic! So too were the margarita's. It was a quiet Sunday evening but even... More

We had dinner here, lucky to get in without a booking. The food is very tasty and the menu has a good selection. I was disappointed with the sangria though as it's not soaked, pieces of fruit are just popped in. Pricey enough for what you get but very tasty.

When we walked up, it really doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let this put you off, once your inside the place is fabulous. Staff really pleasant and helps you with your food...

My sister and I visited Killarney not even thinking we'd find a Mexican restaurant. Turns out it's the best Mexican we've ever tried. The Chef does things with cinnamon and Ancho chili! We had the meat/cheese nachos and discovered that the salsa is a little sweet, the guac is not overwhelming and the whole dish was fabulous. Try the pork... More
