Nice setting with a vaste choice of Mexican dishes and drinks. Not a spicy as one could expect from Mexican food, the chef makes a serious attempt to copy it. Maybe upon request you could get the typical hot dishes.

The food was ok but the service was horrible. They had one server. We ordered two fajitas and it came with 4 tortillas. We had to ask for tortillas every 5 minutes.

Not only horrible taste with over price. Gross and disgusting quality. I am highly doubt that the kitchen reuse the left over food. I can pick here as the worst restaurant in alicante

Welcome to the oldest and most genuine Mexican Mexican restaurant, which has proven to be an alternative to traditional restaurants and fast food restaurants, and also very different from other Mexican restaurants. It is ideal for celebrations, parties or to eat and dine any day in a festive and fun atmosphere. It was inaugurated in 1992 in the center of the city of Alicante. From the first moment it was a success, tasting the authentic Mexican gastronomy, with all kinds of dishes and Mexican antojitos. Open every day except Sundays at night.
