100% Advisable! In our opinion the best mexican in tarifa area. Looking forward to come back. The nachos, fajitas and handmade desserts the best choice in our opinion but it's difficult to get a wrong decision.

The Girasol is a cosy and small restaurant in the old part of town. Good food, good service, big portions, in fact too big... salad are nice served in a eatable plate as it is some kind of bread.

We had prawn fajitas and chicken fajitas, beans were nice as was the free salsa with corn chips. Margaritas were ok (€6 each). Was totally full with people sitting on benches waiting for outside tables.

We love Mexican food and popped in here as we didn't feel like wandering the streets any further, and our kids were hungry. Both the food and the drinks were disappointing. My margarita tasted like it was mostly tequila with very little triple sec or lime. It was one of the worst margaritas I've ever had! We were a family... More

We arrived at the stated opening time - never a good idea in Spain - and the cook asked us to come back in 15-20 minutes. Serves us right, really. We wandered around the block, and then got a table. We had nachos as a starter; and they were excellent. Could have eaten them all day long - a big... More

Best enchiladas ever. The meat was perfectly tender and spiced. Banoffee pie was incredible. Bill was wonderfully cheap!

I got a chicken burrito with rice and beans and it was delicious. I think the guy who sat me and took my order also went in and cooked it fresh! Was sooo good. Friendly people and accommodate english speakers as well. Prices were really nice! Very easy to find. They gave wifi but it wouldn't connect me. I wouldn't... More

Our family is from California, so good Mexican food is always a step away in any direction. As we weave our way around the world, we miss Mexican food the most, so every once in a while we try a Mexican restaurant. We have never found one with even acceptable food until now. This is truly Tex-Mexican. All fresh ingredients... More
