I was in this restaurant for lots of times and always happy with everything in it. The food and drinks are just super. Really relaxing place. A family owned restaurant.

Family run for many years, with dedication to quality and hospitality. Once found, its easy to park close to the door and has level access if you are disabled. The menu is large and the quantities generous. Really, its difficult to fault the food as its obviously made fresh from ingredients bought by an experienced buying chef. The wines are good too - but beware, the Margaritas are much too easily gulped and its only after the 3rd when you stand up that the true effect is realised. Trying to get the grin off your face is the problem. And you don't need to be anesthetised when the bill comes! All in all, a great experience with obviously knowledgeable owners with a regular clientele proving the attraction and consistency of the whole evening. PS I'm not one of the owners and this is a genuine customer experience.

After living in the UK for a couple of years from the US, Mexican food is one of the things we miss. When we saw Pancho Villa just a short drive from our resort we had to give it a go, glad we did. It's a small comfortable place where the staff treat you like a guest in their home.

We started with a jug of Sangria and a complimentary per-starter after a nice conversation with waiter. The food was better than home (GA and VA) where there are some fairly good Mexican Resturants. Unique touches to traditional dishes like the nachoes we enjoyed with our Sangria and the fajitas I had and unique dishes like the Mexican Stroganoff my wife had made for a great meal.

We'll be back to try some other more traditional meals before our week here is done.

Just came back tonight from a few hours at Pancho Villa and had to get on TripAdvisor to promote it!

If you live in Marbella you will see adverts for Guey which is an upscale restaurant serving Mexican food and cocktails and granted its a nice place, but Pancho Villa makes better food, has a better feel & the owner/chef are genuinely welcoming.

Today is my wife's birthday and I wanted to find an intimate restaurant with authentic food and Mexican cuisine is arguably our favourite. Having eaten Mexicans in the US, Mexico & throughout Europe we have high expectations and Pancho Villa delivered on taste, presentation and the service was very personal.

Take the exit for Cancelada if heading towards Estepona & get back onto the dual carriageway heading back towards Marbella, take the 1st exit for the petrol station and carry on driving on the side road. Pancho Villa is on your right next door to an Indian takeaway/restaurant.
