real Mexican restaurant

My friend took me out for lunch to this Mexican restaurant. Don´t expect any Tex-Mex dishes here. There are no fajitas etc. on the menu, but the dishes are authentically Mexican with a wide range of original, different flavours and textures. We had the daily set lunch menu for 10.80 euros.

Do not eat here. If you want to go for drinks and a nice place, okay, but there are better in Valencia. I have traveled to Mexico and Southwest U.S., I'm from Texas, but live in here now. This food was okay, but in no way was it Mexican food, except for the guacamole in the tiny serving. And overpriced.... More

No cooking skills , no interest in serving , foul chips..... God help those in Valencia looking for edible food. Why can't Valencianos take a hint from their fellow Spaniards in the Basque region and Learn To Cook??!!

Absolutely disgusting. My boyfriend was visiting me this week and we love Mexican food so I took him here after it appeared in a leaflet about Ruzafa. The food was COLD, TASTELESS and there was little of it- not that we wanted more if it the quality was like that! Not only that, my boyfriend was severely ill the morning... More

If you've ever had mexican food in Spain before you'll know that Old El Paso it aint. The food was lovely though translating what we were ordering was a little tricky. I would recommend taking a dictionary as only Maria herself spoke English. Aside from that it was hands down the best guacamole I have ever eaten. Worth a visit,... More
