First off, it was 17 mins. We know this because we saw the time when you were getting angry. Second, there was a person and 2 Glovos ahead of you. There's this thing called technology you know? So the fact that you don't see a...More

This place is great! It's casual, simple and simply delicious. The options for tortillas and quesadillas here are amazing, and they are really well made. It's not fancy, and the place does not have anything special, but the food and service just sell it out....Drinks are also not very special here, but you can go for a couple of margaritas.More

Cash only restaurant! I suggest make a reservation, place is small and filled up quickly. The food was delicious, stop by and see for yourself!!

Visited the place based on all good TA reviews, and I think it's more suited for students/younger audience who doesn't mind sitting on bar stools, as the place is small, there are 3 tables which would only be given to a party of 3+, rest...of seats are round the bar. Beers served in bottles, no glasses, and generally set up is quite basic. Food is delicious but we saw a lady cook drop a frozen tortilla on the floor then pick it back up and put back to be cooked, which was not great in front of the customers... Dishes are being washed and dried at the bar in front of the customers too, which is a bit loud and kind of doesn't allow you to have a nice chat. I think it's got its target audience and again food was really tasty, but I personally would prefer a more restaurant type of a set up where we could spend a couple of hours having dinner more comfortably.More

Hello :) As you said, we have a specific informal atmosphere that it's not for everyone. I understand if it wasn't your thing but appreciate that your review doesn't jump into the "not how i prefer places so they are bad" kind of analysis. With...More

This was a charming location. You get a sheet of paper with the menu and circle what you want to order, write your name on it, and "turn it in." The food was delicious. The atmosphere was lively and fun. Not many vegetarian options, but...everything is delicious!More

I have to shout out to my daughter who found this place and convinced us we should have Mexican whilst in Barcelona. We weren’t disappointed at all, and as a result totally over ordered. Struggled to fit both the drinks and the food on the...small high table. Beware the space is quite small and probably not suited for parties greater than 2. We chances our luck as a party of 4 and managed to get one of the few (of 2 I think) 4 person high tables. Not a place for people suffering claustrophobia when it’s busy. Thankfully we don’t mind (and TBH) adds to the atmosphere. Hop vibe, awesome drinks, good to large sized DELICIOUS menu items. Recommending to all my friends and almost want to return to Barcelona just for this Mexican.More

The drinks and ambiance here were perfect, I loved the decor and how cosy it was. The food and drinks menu were perfect - not an overwhelming amount of choice, just right! However the menu would benefit if the dishes that were vegetarian friendly were...clearly labelled, as my friend accidentally ordered the tostadas with 'tinga', which I forgot was a chicken dish. Noone checked back to see if the food was OK, which it clearly wasn't. Besides that we enjoyed our brief hour here and the margaritas!More

The food was good and the staff was friendly. Expect a few minutes wait during the rush hours. The spicy margaritas are really spicy. Definitely stop by for a quick bite if you got the chance.

We do presential take away if the work load allows it at a given moment, but we cannot guarantee we'll be able to do it at all times. Avoid rush hours if you want to ask this :) . You can count that if we can we'll do it... More
