If you know how delicious mexican food is made, with it's wonderful taste and flavour, this is definitely not the place to go! For the first time ever, the recommendations at tripadvisor has failed, big time!

By far one of the most interesting Mexican restaurants in Germany. An ambitious selection of traditional Mexican dishes with a fusion twist, which surprise you with flavours. Great, thoughtful servers, very knowledgeable about the food and the drinks on the menu. Nice interior, pleasant Mexican music in the background. They have tables outside and inside. Do not go there though if you only want burritos or fajitas - they are not on the menu. Oh, and the servings are quite large, so order wisely!

This is certainly not a gastronomic highlight, but a friendly and enjoyable introduction to Mexican culinary offers.

My girlfriend and I have visited Papalotl on many occasions and each time we are greeted with a very warm welcome and indulge in wonderful food! The service is great and each time there is a new menu, Barbara has taken time to explain all the dishes to us.

I cannot choose one favourite dish as all are delicious, though I would highly recommend the turkey or venison! The menu is not what one usually expects of a Mexican restaurant (fajitas, tacos etc), but instead the chef serves mouthwatering meats or fish and sauces infused with different types of chilli.

We also love to finish our meal with a margarita :) We cannot wait for our next visit!
