A pretty normal German inspired spanish/mexican place. The salsa is sweet and the meat is generally done very well. There is no cuban food on the menu, and if you're looking for enchiladas, they don't have sauce on them. I happen to really like the place, but be aware of you're getting.

Menu is what you would expect, nothing more, nothing less. Doubting between a 3/5 and 4/5, but I've been here already a couple of times, but the menu hasn't been updated in all that time. So I'll stick to my 3/5 overall. I think there are more alleys to explore than the just main street style they serve. On a... More

I was not convinced at first for a Mexican food in the heart of the Black Forest. The name was also "cubanita" so I though that they were a bit confused. We were a bit early and was treated by a super friendly waitress. I would not mind hiring her if I would happen to have a restaurant. She speaks... More

This place serves a fine mexican cuisine, but its quite influenced by the local taste and flavor. I liked the taste of the food, as its still not a german food. Enjoy your evening here, it worths a visit once.

Nicely located Mexican restaurant in Ettlingen - on the main street leading into the main old square. Plenty of seating outside, loads inside the building. Menu has a good choice of tex-mex dishes with the classics present there. Service is good, prompt and speaks good English. The only gripe I may have is that serving size - they were a... More

Surprised to come across this Mexican themed restaurant in Ettlingen. However, there it was and in we went. A very nice menu delivering huge portions of the usual Mexican fare. My tricolour enschelada was fab but we really didn't need the equally nice dips and tortillas to start. The menu was propped up with a wide range of beers, spirits,... More
