Festive and Fun, but...

We've eaten at this place several times, having first been introduced when we arrived here a few years ago. It's a great way to get non italian food, but it's much better to go with Italians (as many restos are in Italy). The food and service here are generally both mediocre at best, but... read more

The atmosphere is friendly but the food is mediocre. It's also very noisy when all tables booked. Would recommend just for drinks.

The place is located just behind porta Genova station, it is easily reachable. The food is decent. The cocktails and the Margarida especially are fantastic. If you don't fancy having dinner, you should sit at the bar and order a Margarida. It is really worth it!

Wine 20 - 35 euro. Service was slow, not attentive, and they will cheat you if there... More

We went here for tea and it was delicious. The staff were friendly and all had great service. My partner and I had the mixed taco plate which was a big serve both feeling very full afterwards. It is a little bit pricey being 16.50 euros each plus drinks but was worth it. Overall was great night out and looking... More

A little bit expensive, but the food is quiet good and A LOT of it, and drinks also very tasty. I've been here the first time about 15 years ago, and it's always a good place to go for mexican food

More of a bar than a restaurant in my opinion, as the restaurant doesn't deserve a rating. High prices. Good for people who don't know Mexican food, otherwise you'd never come back.

I like the place, and the food. Once we got a table right next to a Mexican mariachos band. A bit noisy, after one hour I was getting nervous ...
