I have been here a handful of times ever since they opened at their old location. Always had a great experience here. Love the Enchiladas and pretty much anything else I have ever had there. I have been to some other „Mexican“ restaurants in Switzerland...and this one is the first one who actually serve Mexican food as their competitors seem to have no clue what actual Mexican food tastes like. Great choice of dishes. I could only hope for them to add a lovely mole sauce to their selection. Lovely staff, great food!More

Rooftop Mexican restaurant in Luzern, although not much there’s to be seen, at least from the inside. It’s got a nice variety of food, with average service. Swiss prices .

Been to this restaurant twice. Food taste is ok, good for vegetarians. They charged chf 8.5 for one liter of tap water (not mineral water). It is just a rip off. I asked the waiter, he says he also feels it is high !! The...price is more than a typical restaurant charges for mineral water. Very unlikely to go again to this restaurant.More

Pretty underwhelming. $125 for 8 tacos, 4 drinks and a tiny cheese and chips app. The service was the worst part of the experience. It wasn't terribly busy but I saw the waiter only twice and needed to flag down others in the restaurant for...water, another beer and also the bill. I had asked for a side of pico de gallo, never received it. Though this was a second choice, after Pacifico was fully booked....for $125 USD, I've had MUCH better tacos - pretty much anywhere else I've ever been.More

First of all, the drinks we ordered had hardly any alcohol inside ... it was more like drinking juice. Later on, the red wine glas was full of red wine at the bottom and when I told that to the server, he just looked at...me in a weird way. I ordered a Mexican bowl that was supposed to be served with rice. It was served without rice and when I told that to the server, he said that the kitchen made a mistake (which can happen, no problem) but then he was like “we actually run out of rice” (and that on a Saturday evening and the restaurant not even being fully booked?). What was very friendly though was the fact that they only charged me a very little amount for my main dish due to their mistake. Furthermore, they served the wrong main dish to my friend. Overall a nicely decorated restaurant but there is space for improvement.More

Nothing special. Food is average. Dessert is a rip off. Ambiance is ok. Amigos con nosotros estan ok tambien.

The good things first: This is a nice restaurant with beautiful views of the old town. The Mexican decorations are als quite nice. The service was friendly and reasonably efficient. The cocktail I ordered (Caipirina) was also very good. Now the not so good points:...the food was not bad, but, as other people already mentioned, the portions were rather small for the price. In my opinion the seating was too crowded to be comfortable.More
