Quality mexican

Sensational food, in a quirky and colourful setting. Slightly tucked away from the main streets. Great cocktails too and all reasonably priced. Better mexican food than motel mexicola.

If you're looking for a cheap(by tourists standards) and unpretentious place to eat, get good value for money with some friendly service then it's hard to beat Lacalaca. We were staying a short walk away down Jl Drupadi and decided to try this little Mexican establishment. I sampled the Fundido and the rib eye beef/chicken fajitas and hands down they... More

Great find and deserves a higher place in the rankings! We ate here because it was close to our hotel and found the food to be excellent. Wish we had one of these at home. Loved the entree that was only little tacos (sorry can't remember the name, but the menu describes it as good for sharing). The fajitas were... More

Great atmosphere, huge menu choice and lovely food. Good service, looked to be the owner who was welcoming serving and clearing up along with his staff, unusual but great to see...... the staff really seemed to be relaxed and happy to be working there. Would definitely recommend, great value too.

We came here by a recommendation. It is an open restaurant with great music (dj was playing) and a really funny mexican guy welcoming you. The menu is small but we really enojoyed everything. Had a "chefs greeting", a spicy soup which was delicious! Then a 2 different tacos, they were very tasty, you got to choose between 2 or... More

We went here last night, first impressions were that is was a lovely little restaurant, just seconds from Jalan Kaya Ayu but very quiet. We arrived at 6.50, they do kids meals until 7, but we're told it has already finished, we showed them the time but they said no it's all done. We had 2 staff serving us, one... More

Really nice mexican. I drank a Michelada which is Bintang with tomato juice and spices. We had meatballs and rice, quesadilla with crab and a nachos. Everything was super tasty and the staff were amazing. Lots of personality.

Had previously heard mixed reviews here but stumbled upon Lacalaca whilst walking back to our hotel early one evening. So glad we did , the food was outstanding...we were given a type of warm chicken soup to start with which was complimentary and was sensational. For entrees we tried the grilled corn and the cheese fondue which included beef meatballs... More

Awesome service and a good vibe .. The food was outstanding, just really great Mexican food. We made it for happy hour - 2 Margaritas for the price of 1, really good cocktails! Wait staff were so attentive, happy and polite and we did not feel rushed at all to get out like so many other places ..
