Great Restaurant - try it!

We've been to El Azteca three times in the last 8 months, first just my wife and I and then with our extended adult family. Very welcoming, the owner gets it just right friendly but not imposing. Good food, not tex mex but nearer to something you might eat in Mexico. - and it's good . One more... read more

They are only open at night. You have to walk down a side street and it is attached to a hotel. This Mexcian food is slightly different than food in the states. My son had chicken fajitas but had to ask for it without sauce. We don't put sauce on ours in the states. There is not the usual chips... More

We live in Germany and haven't had a decent taco, nachos or margarita for over a year. We booked the Hotel Blume primarily for their Mexican restaurant El Azteca. Make reservations as the place is small and fills up quickly on Friday and Saturday nights. It was wonderful. The food was fresh and delicious. My husband had their strip steak... More

I've been twice to Interlaken, I've eaten my dinner twice at El Azteca and for sure whenever I'll go again to Interlaken - this will be the place where I eat :) I've been to Mexico and tasted some local food there so I have at least some distant base for comparison - El Azteca serves real mexican-like food (maybe...

My wife found this restaurant on tripadvisor and we decided to check this one out, even if it said, that there would be a guitar man playing. Normaly I'm not a fan of live music at dinner. But I need to say, everything was just amazing: food, atmosphere, hospitality, service and specially the music! So, we decided to spend the... More

Three friends and I tried to visit El Azteca on a Friday evening. We are from out of town so obviously don't know how busy restaurants get. Once we entered, a staff member greeted us with more attitude and disregard than I have ever experienced in a restaurant. He told us "obviously the room is full" and that he could... More

This place has a really cool atmosphere. It feels like you've stepped out of Switzerland and into Mexico. The bartender, by far, is the best bartender I have ever met. Very funny, charismatic and enjoyable to be around! Would visit this place every weekend if I had a bar like that in my city!

Absolutely amazing food. Maybe a little too salty for my taste but very very good. The bartender/waiter is absolutely hilarious. The guy totally made my day. I also had the best tequila I've ever had in my life here.

Admittedly dubious about Mexican food in Switzerland, but El Azteca was not only a refreshing surprise but the food and staff were awesome! We lived in Colorado for years and certainly know the difference between Tex-Mex and authentic Mexican food - this is the real deal from drinks (Margaritas rimmed with Tajin to Conchinita Pibil enchilads to Pineapple Bunuelos!
