Not bad, but could be better

We visited Haarlem and went to Popo. Good atmosphere, friendly staff, good selection of food. But: the restroom is downstairs, without elevator and just a small stairs. Music a little too loud.. and the flavour of my selection was not special as I expected. Anyway.. worth a try again! Maybe in The... read more

Last night we were here with the kids who loved the colourfull deco of the place. Kids loved the fajitas and I liked the spicy chicken. Service was good and friendly. Not a place for a romantic dinner though.

That pretty much says it all. The waiter took forever to bring drinks, didn't refill the chips and stated there were no Big Macs there...as if all Americans eat at McDonalds and only at McDonalds. Ridiculous.

As it was a Tuesday night the restaurant was not busy at all so didn't have much atmosphere, however it looked really nice and I am sure it would have been great on a busy weekend. The waiter was super friendly and attentive and our orders arrived piping hot and in good time. On arrival we were given some Nacho... More

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

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 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
