I've been going here for years. It is always very good but recently I've felt it has lacked the same wow factor it has had in the past. The staff are really nice and the food is good - not amazing though and that is disappointing because it has always been one of my favourite places. The food is good... More

Pancho Villas is a good restaurant in the heart of Glasgow's Merchant City. It is spacious, bright and very relaxed. The fajitas were absolutely brilliant. The chicken, prawn and steak were all cooked to perfection. The tortillas were fresh and the flavour was pretty good. The salsa was nice but a choice of hot or not would be preferable. Salsa,...

I've eaten here a few times and never been disappointed in the choices I've made. This time it was the beef burritos, they were very delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Friendly waiting staff too.

I like Mexican food but find it a bit samey. Plenty of variety and tasty food at this cantina for two begetarians. We had goats chees and red onion quesadiila and fabulous nachos to start. followed by two kinds of enchiladas and some truly tasty frozen strawberry margueritas. We had another classic frozen marguerita each and the waitress, after serving... More

I loved the décor (very colourful), friendly and attentive staff. I enjoyed my meal though I asked for tacos hoping for the shell but instead got a tortilla so that was a bit disappointing, I decided not to complain as I was starving! I also had a margarita which was lovely and decided to have a pina colada after my... More

This restaurant used to be a much visited establishment of mines. The past few visits have been a let down. Poor service, terrible food and poor hygiene in the restrooms. I won't be rushing back.

I went here alone for lunch after a few hours shopping. I was given a choice of seat as a solo diner and wasn't squashed into a corner. The waiting staff were friendly and the lunch was lovely. It is reasonably priced at around £5 or £6 for each course and with plenty to choose from: quesadillas, tacos,tortillas,nachos with chicken,beef,... More

Found this place by accident. Staff were great and so cheerful. Food was delicious but a bit too spicy for one of the party. Will be back

Food was terrible. Service was slow. Not a nice visit for the price. Food was bland and cold and service was basically non existent.

The meals we ate were OK but they lacked the promised chilli, which disappointed. The drink is rather expensive too.
