Visited with my family in July 2014. - Small place probably can not seat more than 8 tables - Good margaritas - but small serving and not strong - Food excellent - I was impressed - Service was poor - took us 40 minutes to close our check....and the dinners coming after us took forever to get their orders in

We enjoy Mexican food and La Cocina is now one of our all-time favorites! The guacamole was amazing and our entrees (enchiladas and fajitas) were some of the best we've ever had. The Margarita special was a great way to start things off! The restaurant is on a side street, just off the main road through this small town, and... More

There are not too many dining options in Keuka and La Cochina is one where you can get a decent meal for a reasonable price. The food is fresh and well prepared, and they have a few good Mexican beers to offer. The chips and salsa are surprisingly good, again because they are fresh. The restaurant looks out to a... More

They simply have great Mexican food. We were surprised to find such in the Finger Lakes area. When ordering my wife questioned the waitress about the chile rejenos as a possible choice. She asked the owner/chef and he came out to convince my wife to try it since he had just made a fresh batch of batter. She said it... More

Boyfriend and I couldn't find anywhere in the area to eat dinner that could seat us right away. This place had been recommended by our B&B owners, and it turned out to be a good tip! They sat us right away even though it's a small place. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was great!

We were doing a wine-tasting weekend and staying in Penn Yan at a b&b where we could preview a variety of menus. La Cocina was our choice. Upon walking in, we immediately got a friendly vibe, with a very warm, cheerful greeting and colorful oilcloth tablecloths and a cozy ambiance. Our order of chips/salsa was fresh as can be, loved...

We eat here often. The food is great, the service is excellent. The atmosphere is casual. Prices are very reasonable. The only negative is that they don't serve margaritas but the Mexican beer is great!

Fist time I ever had Chile Relleno's that were not breaded and fried. Not at all tasty. Don't know if I will ever go back or recommend it either.
