Thank you for your visit and comments! Tell you that Mexican food isn´t cheap. Mexican food for tacos is cheap at € 1 and similar, but if you come to restaurants like ours, from traditional food with top-notch products, the products have a different cost...More

Mexican restaurants are popular and most people are used to the food on offer. This restaurant is different. Owned and run by a Mexican, the menu is authentic Mexican cuisine that few have tried. Most of the dishes will be unfamiliar to new comers but...More

This place still lives off past glory when it was still ok. Service is ok, but you realize they are not Mexican nor do they know much about Mexican dishes, tacos being really the basics. Not even truly spicy nor varied chilies nor salsas available...More

I discovered this place a few years ago and always go back whenever I can. It’s by far the most authentic Mexican restaurant in Madrid. They offer typical dishes which you cannot find in most of other Mexican places and the price/quality relationship is excellent.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
