Nice but not special

Solid Mexican food but this place just got too big too touristy - does not feel like a good atmosphere- more like a Bavarian beer garden

This place is horrendous. There isn't anything about it that's positive really. A big cocktail menu for nothing because guess what? All cocktails taste like water. Food is bad, service is bad. I have no idea why it's so popular!

The cocktails are very good and the happy hour prices really attractive. The guacamole is ok also, fresh and tasty and the vegetarian fajitas also enjoyable. All things considered, there's a good chance i'll go there again, with friends. Oh, and in the winter, make a reservation for the outdoor part of the restaurant! :)

This place may be a little secret. You cannot tell from the outside that there is a great patio and an outdoor Mexican bar a few steps off the Giselastrasse metro escalaro. Enough seating to plan a party for a large group, the happy hour goes from 5 to 8! Wow. I tried their limeade-mango margarita and a Hurricane cocktail.... More

We came to this place a couple of nights ago with some friends to have some drinks, the place and cocktails were very much ok, but the music was SO LOUD that we were in the table yeling to each other trying to have a conversation. The waitress spoke to us almost in sign language cause we couldn't hear anything!... More

If I have one complaint - it is that the portions are too large! This is really lovely mexican restaurant, they seem to have lots of offers - the night we were there, there was a happy hour on cocktails. We had nachos, and they were fine, though there was no peppers or chillis. We both had enchilladas and they... More

Tijuana offers seating inside and outside in a tent. The tent is heated, so even in winter time you can sit outside. The food is good and the service okay.

We were a table of 6 that arrived at 7pm on a Thursday evening. The host was gracious enough to "find" us a table even though he said it was fully booked (yet half the restaurant was empty). We started with some Happy Hour (€5.50) drinks, which were fantastic! We ordered a few appetizers, which were good, and although the... More

This place is very busy with students and after work groups. It is only so-so for drinks and happy hours food (chips). The dinner items are not very good. Items listed as spicy are not hot. The cheese just melts into pools of oil.
