I've eaten in a slew of Mexican food restaurants in my life (and worked in a few, too) especially when I lived near the Mexican border in San Diego California for 17 years.
When visiting Madrid, I was told I should try this place. I...More

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 was recommended by a local, so we decided to try it. Are we ever glad we did!!! It was a long walk from our hotel, but worth every step. The servers were very attentive, and we thought the food was excellent. Surprised by...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
All the staff come from Mexico and if you need help to choose your food they will suggest you some dishes, not necessarily the most expensive ones. The restaurant is not overdecorate just a map of Mexico, some paintings on the yellow walls and flowers....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.
Visited Madrid and this place was right next to where we were staying, so we had to try it. Service was very prompt, the waiter spoke English, which was helpful. We sat outside and had a nice breeze. Cheese dip was spectacular with meat and...More
I come to this restaurant often. It serves the best classic Mexican food in Madrid. The restaurant has a classic Mexican decor. The food...simply amazing. It is not elaborate or fancy. Dishes are classic Mexican dishes at their best. The place is great for couples...More
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
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
