Love this place. Great mexican food in a great relaxed atmosphere. The tacos are superb (slow cooked chipotle lamb is a winner) and you can't go past a jalapeño margarita. A favourite

My husband and I stopped in for a cocktail and a snack. We had the jalapeño margarita and a fresa colada - the jalapeño margarita was really spicy and had a strong jalapeño flavour. Waaay too hot for me but hubby loved it. Then we had tuna tostidas and the steak tacos. Both were yum! It was about 9:45 pm... More

Had reviewed this restaraunt before heading to Bali but did not realise it was only just up the street from our villa so made sure to eat there after all the great reviews. It was not a let down at all, great food and lovely atmosphere and staff

My wife whose a vegetarian loves Mexican food. So when we arrived at Seminyak for a 3 night stay, our first meal was at LacaLaca. Its a fun casual restaurant with great colours. Its a non-air conditioned restaurant. When we arrived for lunch we were informed that there was no power!!! We still decided to have our lunch there. Our... More

Fancied a Mexican while staying in Legian/Kuta/Seminyak and this place seemed to fit the bill after reading a few reviews on here. Nice looking cafe/restaurant. Friendly staff as soon as we walked in. Shared a starter which was some twist on standard nachos really nice and enough to share. For main we shared enchiladas and quesadillas and some rice between... More

It's a big call, especially as some of the food veers off the traditional path. However, do yourself a favour and have a few Codero (slow cooked lamb) tacos, they are like the love child of a Mexican princess and a Greek god. The chili margaritas are damn good too.

Excellent authentic flavours from a menu that offers some of the classics and also new twists on old favourites. The food was smartly presented and often share-compatible if desired, the margaritas strong and tangy and a solid tequila selection is on hand for the adventurous. I spent 10 years on the south pacific coast of Mexico and I'm often disappointed... More

It's a long way from Mexico, but this place does great Mexican food. In the heart of seminyak, Lava Laca has a great atmosphere, friendly, attentive staff and genuine flavours... The slow braised chipotle lamb shank tacos are a must try among many other great dishes... Definitely worth a visit..

My husband and I dined here tonight and found the food to be very tasty! Service was excellent and the atmosphere was great. I highly recommend the Chicken Fajitas and the Fondino (not sure of the spelling). For dessert we had the chocolate brûlée which was very rich, but amazing. It should be served with cream or icecream to cut... More
