Found this restaurant through Trip Advisor. What a find! Set up above the harbour in the old town in a little back street. Great menu that staff explain to you as some dishes are hotter than others I do so was delighted with my choice. Its just a small restaurant but the service was fab. Really would recommend a visit...

This lovely little restaurant is placed in a back street of P.D.C. The Mexican food is some of the best you will ever eat. The staff are brilliant, helpful in you choosing a great meal and are super friendly. Emma's Cantina is a must if you are ever passing through puerto Del Carmen.

We had read reviews about this place and love a mexican so had to try it out. The food we had was delicious, we shared a bucket of beers and had a frozen margarita for dessert. The restaurant is quite small and cosy but could be difficult getting a table at peak times. Staff were really friendl. Highly recommend

Brilliant, very friendly restaurant. Very tasty food and a lot of choice, there is easily something for everyone. Chili Rojo is the nicest Chili I've had, I begrudgingly admit it's even better than my own! Went here twice and had a great time both times.

In the old part of the town. Read good reviews on here so we gave it a try. The staff (especially the young lady from Wolverhampton) are very friendly. Food was very good, I can vouch for their version of surf and turf. My partner had a Mexican dish and she could not fault it. Glad we went.

This was a real find. Authentic Mexican food served by knowledgable and pleasant staff. The food is excellent. Try the Prawn Chimichanga and a jug of the frozen Mararitas
