I have been a few times at this restaurant and my experience was different each time. First of all the restaurant is pretty nice in the inside and outside. Great location although being a little over decorated but I really enjoy it. The staff isn’t...More

I know this restaurant from the beginning. And when they started it was alright. But nowadays the only reason to go there is to have a café de olla.

I ordered "Street food". It was too salty and could not even eat it. The price was not cheap for this street food. The service was fast and good.

The place itself is nice - comfortable and cozy. The service is OK, very little English. The food is very average, but not even close to Mexican - looks like they have Indian chef in the kitchen...

The service was very good, nice waitress that spoke good english. The food was abundant and a bit expensive I would say but then again this is still Germany. Oily burritos and quesadillas and tasteless sauces manage to get us full bellies but a kebab...More
