After reading the reviews and loving Mexican food we decided to find Emma's! The staff were lovely, explaining the menu and after choosing the chilli con carne which is the hottest thing on the menu, we were given a sample to try before committing and wow it was full of heat and flavour. The enchiladas were lovely coming with rice... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. Food was really fresh and tasty! It's a lovely little restaurant away from the busy main streets. Worth a visit.

Ignore the larger chain restaurants along the front purporting to serve Mex or Tex/Mex food - instead head for Emma's for a real treat. Smaller and quieter but this is the real thing and excellent quality. If you like hot food then try the chilli con carne - it comes in one variety only - spicy! Wow! Highly recommended.

The best mexican food I've had in years! Great service from Kirsty and the food was out of this world, I had the perfect Mole here and the drinks selection was just right- Get there early to get a seat though as is only a small place :)

I couldnt wait to get the chicken fajitas as I was not too be disappointed. They are class, really tasty (You should get at least one additional tortilla when ordering as 3 is not enough) The spicey cheese wedges are tasty & the refried beans are top notch. Bucket of Sol beer 10 euro which is reasonable. The service was... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for a number of years , please note previous review . This time we found it lacked the usual atmosphere with vacant tables , the food fell below the previously high standard and unfortunately is now crossed off our list for future visits . We are advised it has changed ownership .
