As someone who appreciates authentic Mexican food for it's fresh, rich flavours and colourful plating I was sorely disappointed by the lack of quality seen at this very pricey restaurant. Firstly, their margarita was lime cordial with cheap tequila in it...honestly the kirkland costco premade margarita tastes more authentic...which is saying something I ordered spicy chorizo tacos which came with...

My wife and I were recent guests in the restaurant and left fully satisfied. The portions were generous and the service was very impressive. Steady supply of nachos and real pico de gallo for us. Everything was reasonably priced. Decor is a little spartan, but not a big deal. When the Mexican desire strikes again, I will return.

Excellent food and prompt, friendly service. We've been there many times over the years. The servers are always pleasant and competent and the food always tastes fresh - as though it went from the farm to the table in less than one day. The sauces are delicious and their tastes are distinct from one another. We have often seen members... More

Went here the other night with a couple girlfriends, I had been here before and always had amazing food but it had been a couple years, asked the waitress what she would recommend (cant remember what it was called) but tried that and it was fantastic- an enchilada with a taco and a toasted taco. The flavors are wonderful! we... More

We had a nudge for Mexican food, and so we returned to Tu Tierra. Lime margs are great especially with the homemade chips and salsa. The service is so quick and attentive without being overbearing. I felt like a combination plate so I chose Tutierra-never tried it before. Super yummy and hit the spot! My husband tried the beef burrito... More

We were at Calgary for some time and there was this Mexican restaurant close to where we were staying. That induced a desire in us to try Mexican food. This is a restaurant well located in south east Calgary with a good ambience. As we were seated, a basket of tortilla and a small bowl of salsa were already waiting... More

After much hesitation we decided to try this restaurant last night. The reviews are amazing but we were turned off by the asian looking sign and dated decor. But then some of the best restaurants are the 'hole in the wall' types so we took our chances. The food was fantastic! We were greeted with a bowl of chips and... More

Amazing, fresh, delicious Mexican in a great neighbourhood. Homemade tortilla chips are served fresh when you sit down with in house salsa. The bowls are my favourite entree.
