I hate the typical titles like " best XXX in Zürich" but at least I can said that the tacos taste similar than in Mexico, and I love it. Guacamole it is also nice and I love the non-flavor-added-nachos, something difficult to find in Europe. The atmosphere is nice, noisy and the staff friendly. Cons: I found the michelada so... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this little restaurant! The food was very authentic and fresh! Portions are a bit small based on US portions but you aren't starving when you leave. The owner was very helpful to explain the menu in English. The only down side is there are no sides offered like refried/black beans..chips, salsa & guacamole are delicious... More

It is hard to find good Mexican food in Switzerland but this place nails it. They have a large selection of tacos and they are great. They come with different sauces to add on. The downside is that It costs you 12 CHF for 2 tacos. I guess that is just the price to pay for decent food in Zurich.

It is well placed in Zurich, 5-10 min from the main station, and the food is very tasty! Service is also good and atmosphere is ok.

Simply delicious! Love the tacos, quesadillas, and the guacamole! Beer in a pitcher, reasonable prices, who could ask for more? Reservations needed.

Yes I agree with my previous reviewers, there is better mexican food BUT price vers. value (in Zurich so rare) is so spot on in El Luchador, the staff is amazing and there margaritas- top! The food is generally good - not great great and they could use more fresh vegetables (as done usually with good mexicans in there tacos)... More

Although the restaurant is quite small, the service is not very efficient nor organised. The food is disappointing as the "tacos" are very small and not filled at all. Way too basic and not that tasty.
