The ingredients are very wrong, the cooking is lackluster and haphazard, the end result is poor. If Mexican cooking, be it Tex-Mex or real Mexican is what your looking for take a wide berth. This is a bar scene with a Mexican "inspired" food theme. What I've had was well below what any fast food chain would offer. In all... More

Food is OK, nothing spectacular. I have eaten far better Mexican food elsewhere (though not in Switzerland). The place is very small and the tables close together (be aware when leaving your table not to take everything on the table of your neighbors with you as you squeeze past them!). Service is generally swift and friendly but the value for... More

This is a restaurant of two halves. On the plus side it's a busy, bustling little restaurant with young, enthusiastic and very friendly staff. The food is very good quality and portion sizes are very generous Service is fast and efficient. But... It's Mexican food, which is boring and all tastes the same - and this was typical Mexican food.... More

I recently dined in this mexican spot just across from the lake,i had heard good reviews on it and wanted to see for myself. The first thing that struck me was how busy it was and we came in at 9pm. The seating is somewhat cosy, others might say cramped, we were seated so close to another table that it... More

There were 5 of us and we were seated immediately and a drinks order taken! The drinks arrived then immediately the food order was taken. Food was delicious, everyone of us really enjoyed it. Service was splendid. All in all a lovely little authentic restaurant which was not overpriced in a friendly little Lakeside setting

I've had quite a bit of mexican food in my life and this is hands-down the worst I've ever had. The vegetables were not fresh, there was no spice to any of the food, and it tasted like they used the wrong kind of chilis in the salsa and sauces. It didn't taste like real mexican food at all. On... More

Juanitos is located in downtown Zug, about 5-10 minute walk from the Zug main train station. There is seating inside and outside. The outside seating has views of the lake. Although there is road in between lake and restaurant, it is still pleasant to sit outside on a nice evening. We've been a few times to Juanitos now. We go... More

We ate in this restaurant recently because almost all others are closed on Sunday evening! As a rule I wouldn't go for Mexican food at all! We loved the atmosphere, although a table with four young people created a lot of noise which prompted a young couple to leave the restaurant and us to move to the other side. Still,... More
