Description: La Panza es Primero is located on Calle Libertad in the heart of Madrid's emblematic barrio of Chueca. The restaurant, which opened in 2000, converted the old wine cellar at this location into an authentic Mexican canteen, decorated with typical objects from Mexican culture, such as a five metre virgin of Guadalupe and a free wrestling ring! At La Panza es Primero diners can enjoy Mexican food, full of the bold flavours, colours and aromas of Mexico combined with Spanish ingredients, creating a happy fusion. Diners will find friendly and personal service in this colourful and fun restaurant as well as authentic Mexican culture.

“Good choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

If you are looking for a not fancy tohugh fun place to go for dinner on a saturday evening with a group of friends... it's a good choice. It is a good mexican in terms of food, with a reasonable service and the price is very much in line with the quality of the food. good value for money.

“right brand wrong restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

we booked for the restaurant which said it was city centre but was infact in a commercial centre called la gavia miles away. the map showed the address and dropped a pin in central madrid major #fail. undaunted we made our way to this outlet, no booking but got a table for 3 (1 child, 1 veggie). small-ish inside, but nice quirky decor, very friendly staff and good menu choices. (note menu is in spanish). the slushy margaritas were great, nachos with cheese, guacamole, tomato, coriander etc very generous. we then had 3 centrito plates (3 tortillas plus a tapa like dish)...all very tasty. the centro plate has 6 tortillas and bigger portions). we also shared a veggie chimichanga which was VERY tasty. price...1 x nachos to share, 3 centrito plates, 1 chimi, 4 margaritas, 2 glasses of wine and 3 cokes = 75€. would definatley go again.
