Description: Viva la Mexico. The restaurant caters for a very varied clientele. Cacti, sombreros and colourful murals form part of the décor. The menu offers an enormous range of dishes. Once you have decided what you are going to eat, you will find that the service is fast. The waiting staff are young and friendly. Dishes include classics such as tortilla chips, enchiladas and burritos. For the big boys there is a lot of meat to choose from and a great selection of steak. Why not order a tequila to send you on your way? Or perhaps you fancy something sweet? In that case why not sit out under the white sunshades and enjoy a creamy cocktail? There is also a selection of wine.

We had a reasonable meal here but nothing better than you could get in a Chiquitos or other Mexican chain. We were expecting great things with the rave reviews on Trip Advisor and so were a bit disappointed that it was perfectly fine but nothing wow. My chicken fajita was good - very small portions of guacamole and sour cream... More

My wife and I had dinner at Tex Mex Santa Fe and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Their menu is available in English and is very extensive. We started with a chips and salsa appetizer that included several sauces, sour cream, and guacamole. It was very good with one of the hot sauces having a pretty good kick to it. My... More

My expectations weren’t very high for Dresden’s only Mexican restaurant, especially given the mixed reviews here, but we were very impressed. The menu has a lot to choose from, and the best part is that they offer combination platters so you can try a little bit of everything. We went with the Grande Veggie combo and Mixed Tacos with chicken... More

We wanted something special this evening and decided for Mexican Food. The Tex Mex Santa Fee in the old town of Dresden was the place we have chosen. The food was very good. The local a bit noise and the decoration a bit disney style. But the food was fresh and delicious and the portions were big. A good place.

If you are looking for mexican food, you probably should not go here. But if you are looking for tex-mex this is the place to go :) . The meals are great and you have a lot of different choices. The layout of the menu is a bit confusing and some hard shell dough thingy tastes more like flaky pastry,... More

- A nice place for informal dining. The simple interior of the place matches the food they serve. The waiters are friendly and helpful but be prepared for long service. Well, sometimes quality needs time … The tenderlion steak I had was very nice – soft and juicy – just as a medium steak should be. It was also very... More

Had a meal here one evening whilst staying in Dresden for two nights. Just walked in and were able to be seated without a booking. Food was fabulous and very reasonably priced. Staff were very attentive and the restaurant had a lovely friendly atmosphere. Would definitely eat here again

Tired of schnitzel, so we had dinner here. Really good Mexican with an extensive menu. I found it better than mast high end us Mexican. The price was not cheap however. 30 euros for 2. They do not take credit cards which I found very strange.

We visited this restaurant as it was very close to our hotel. First impressions was that it was colourfully and brightly decorated, with a nice, relaxing atmosphere. The menu also offers a good range of Mexican and South American dishes and drinks (along with some German beer). You won't go hungry as the portion sizes were generous. You may however... More
