Mexican food in Tirana!

I and my family of six went there and ordered a wide variety of entrée's. Everyone left happy and full. We all love authentic Mexican food and I would not say this was super authentic but it was good none-the-less. We all wish the food could have been spicier but we understand that most... read more

This past summer I had the opportunity to backpack through Europe and while exploring through the Balkans I noticed there wasn't a single Mexican restaurant until I stumbled upon this one. The people were so welcoming and all spoke perfect English. The food was the on point and the service was impeccable. The only thing this place was missing from... More

One of the best restaurant that I found in Tirana. The food is fresh, authentic and delicious. I was very happy to spend an amazing night here. The service is quick, very welcoming and multi-lingual which is an absolute plus in Tirana. Highly recommended the Santa Fe and Quesadillas.

The Balkans is hostile territory for any and all ethnic dining. They either do not exist or are a poor reflection on their cuisine. The people here are very content with their loads of meat or pizza with ketchup. I ended up here only because it right below my hotel, and I had a strong urge to have a margarita.... More

The atmosphere is nice and it's very clean. The waitress was very attentive and spoke perfect English. I made the mistake of ordering nachos. They were probably the poorest attempt at nachos I have seen anywhere in the world. A cold plate of flavoured tortilla chips with cheese out of a tube, some cut up tomato and salsa. I also... More

Thank you so much for your feedback! We have definitely upgraded the nachos, however finding actual tortilla chips in Albania has proven to be a real problem. We are hoping to find some new suppliers that may have them though. Happy to hear that everything else went well! Hope to have you dine with us again! More

You would never expect to find a Mexican restaurant in Tirana. I'm glad I checked it out because it's one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever experienced. I've traveled extensively in Texas so I am comparing this place to some serious competition. I am hooked on their chicken burritos. Once you've sampled the local cuisine this place deserves... More
