Average restaurant.

If you're looking for a good, authentic Mexican restaurant, I wouldn't bother to go here. The service was terrible, the food was below average and it was so noisy you couldn't have a conversation and this was the middle of the day.

As a fan of Mexican food, the tempting list of food at Popocatepetl drew me in on a lazy Sunday afternoon. I ordered the fajitas, Mrs Llama ordered the enchiladas. We also had some nachos and salsa on the side. The salsa had a great kick to it and the nachos were tasty - which boded well. Sadly the main... More

As I was in a hurry with the parking meter almost running out, I ran into this spacious, typically Mexican decorated restaurant for a very affordable (€6.90) plato del día. Nice atmosphere. Pleasant service. Busy. The free tortilla chips were warm and crispy, the salsa tasty, though for me not spicy enough. But with 2 types of hot sauce at... More

Arrived quite late on a cold Tuesday evening as a lone diner and was treated very well. Food was a pleasant surprise and with 2 beers I still had change out of 20 Euros. Great view of the grand church. I had the steak quesadillas.

Like a moth I was attracted by the brightly coloured lights outside. It looked like a fun spot. The wait staff wear ponchos, the light fixtures have coloured bulbs. It took a little while to place our order, but they do have multilingual menus available and the staff spoke good English. There were free nachos. The food came quickly and... More

The food was delicious I had the fajitas the chicken was and vegetables were very good. The salad sour cream and guacamole were all together in a tiny tiny pot. There was no cheese. It was such a shame as I expected all of the accompaniments to be in little pots. My husband had the enchiladas which were excellent. The... More
