We visited this restaurant twice during our holiday in Puerto del Carmen. We were welcomed by such friendly staff and given advice and even samples of the food before we ordered as we were not used to Mexican food and not sure what might be too spicy to our taste. We all had different dishes and everyone enjoyed their food.... More

Just off the main drag this restaurant does some of the best fillet steak S a brill chilli salsa on the side. The Sangria is good and apart from the local kids who insist on wandering around scrounging money and banging drums the atmosphere was good. Not to expensive and the staff were very good.

Asked a local Anglo to recommend a Mexican restaurant and he told us about Emma's! We weren't disappointed - it was fantastic... Food was fab, as was the Mango Margerita's!

We had a table of four, the atmosphere was great, the staff couldn't do enough for us and not pushy at all. The food was fabulous all thoroughly enjoyed. Plenty of choice, good wine selection. We are going back in May.

We loved the food and service at Emma's. I had the stuffed jalapenos to start and the chicken chimichanga to follow. My partner had the shepherd's tacos. We both loved the food and would have loved to have paid a return visit but our holiday was about to end. Have to add that Kirsty provided superb service, a great asset... More
