I notice many reviews are about the Batel branch of this Mexican restaurant chain. I have had experience with Zapata in the Estacao Mall (Centro) in Curitiba. I highly recommend the food there. You can choose tacos, burritos and other Mexican fare. The employees make the food fresh in front of you. When you order, you can choose what toppings... More

There are not many places with outside terrace, that are so nice like this one! You can also have a "rodízio" of Mexican food: all you can eat served at your table. It is beloved by families, younger and older people.

The price is good, the beer is cold, the atmosphere is nice, but food can be better.
