This place is not only authentic mexican food but great mexican service with a happy smile. The restaurant has moved from 115 hunter east to 190 hunter west. I had the tica mole dinner and it was delicious. I would recommend this to anyone who would like to eat great mexican food. Hola.

Went here for the first time for a birthday celebration. There were ten of us. The food and service were impeccable. One of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever been to. Many thanks.

This is one of my favourite places to eat in Peterborough. The food is delicious and fresh every time. Awesome vegetarian selection. The patio is a lovely touch during the warm months. Will keep coming back!

Grandaughter's choice for her BD. Food was delicious, spicy hot or less hot which was just fine it's mexican. Homemade torillas with cheese and salsa were amazing as was the Quesadillas with cheese, grilled pork loin served in a hot lava stone dish with salsa, rice beans, soft tortillas and the spicy shrimp with salsa and beans with salad.

We have eaten at La Hacienda several times for lunch (one of the nicest patios in Peterborough), and it is always excellent. The Sopa Azteca is a great lunch choice - we usually get the guacamole to share too. We had the fajita and the enchiladas and they were very fresh, flavourful, and generous portions. Service was prompt, friendly and... More

The guacamole is fantastic as are the beverages however we thought we would encounter a lot more spice in the food itself.

The restaurant has a great atmosphere but the food was disappointing. It wasn't bad Mexican but I did expect better just because of location and atmosphere upon entering. Margaritas were great and made up for the lacking in the authenticity of the food. I think my expectations may have been a bit to high but Chipotle honestly offers up better... More

This is a little gem of a restaurant. I have been here at least 10 times and the quality of food is amazing and consistent. Service has never been an issue here either. Restaurant is clean, organized, and decorated in a warm Mexican style. My favorite dishes are the tamales, the freshly made guacamole and chips, tacos el pastor, and... More
