El Latino was right next to the hostel we were staying at. So lucky that is was! The food is fresh & delicious! The sangria is a must it is incredible! I was very happy to spend my friend's birthday at a great spot! Cheers!

Food isn't great and a bit overpriced. I got the fajitas and the stew was not really warm, beef was certainly not tender and the sauces where not enough for the amount of wraps they serve you. The unlimited ribs/chicken wings is a better choice but also nothing really special.

We went there for their happy hour deal, if you order certain food you get a free cocktail. I'm not an expert in Mexican food but it tasted pretty awesome, the price was also reasonable. If you got time, I would check it out.

Picked it at random off the street with a group of five - two who live in Ha Noi and three from HCMC. Five ate, three left hungry and all mains were 110k+. Ordered a quick guacamole to start and it came out fast but was very small and 70 or 90k. Grande nachos were roughly the same or below... More

We went in a big group and the food was delicious, they have happy hour deals were you can get a mojito and fajitas for 140, and the tapas is buy two get one free which is pretty good.

Very very pricey and small portions - esp. the breakfast. Three miniature slices of baguette with butter and jam for 20K. Staff seemed to be somewhat reserved and not very friendly. I ordered a black tea and got instead a green tea. It was before I tasted it, when I saw the two waiters gossiping while staring at me. I... More

Great decor and atmosphere. Although the food options within walking distance of El Latino aren't great, this place has some very very good reviews, so we had reasonably high expectations. We didn't particularly enjoy our meal, but the chicken fajitas and the cocktails were great. What you'd expect from Mexican in Vietnamese

Only discover this little place on our last day in Mui Ne, what a gem! It was directly across from our resort, had such a nice lunch just right before we get back to the city. Would have been a great place to chill in the evening 👍🏻
