This restaurant is right next to the Energiehotel where we stayed. The service is hurried, but the place is packed and the food is excellent. Definitely worth it.

After quite some waiting time, the starter arrived. It was quite good, but throughout the evening the level dropped. An actually fine steak was served with improper cutlery, making it harder to cut the meat than to chew it. Accompanying sauces did not impress, they didn't seem to be homemade. Desserts were boring.
Throughout the whole night, serving was extremely slow - but very friendly however. Looking at other reviews, we may just have had an odd and unlucky experience, but it was never really a temptation to go there again.

waiters are very enthusiastic friendly happy people which make you instantly feel welcome. they speak spanish german and english very well. the menu is in german and spanish which neither of i can read. here this was no problem not only did the waiter explain what was what but he also brought out a big selection of meats to show me what you get. a complementry glass of cherry awaits your arrival and an entree.
portion to cost ratio is phenominal and there is not a chance of you leaving this place still hungry.salad dressings are fantastic.
great place to go for both fish lovers and meat lovers.
if a came back to berlin i would definatly revisit this restaurant

Fistly, we went back 3 nights on the row which is unheard of on stag as we always like to try new places.
ours was a group of 12 guys in their 40's on a stag weekend, we all appreciate good food and service but having been on many stags over the past couple of decades we know that it's a rare commodity at 2am.
On arriving at el borriquito I asked if it were too late for food and was told that the kitchens don't shut till 4am.
Rather than spend hours wading through the impressive menu I asked for them to just sort out some food for us, the massive platters of food that were delivered were exactly what we required including perfectly cooked calamari.That and a few buckets of beers turned this into a superb evening.
And the place was buzzing, thoroughly recommended

This restaurant has an excellent reputation so we went there for a special occasion. The complimentary sherry and appetizers were excellent - as were the starters. But the main courses were nothing special (we may just have chosen badly) and there were no vegetarian options (one of our party prefers vegetarian food). The service was friendly but slow.
