Quite a lot of TexMex in PDC. This one is as good as the others we tried and prices are reasonable. Steak was good and other half enjoyed his fajitas.

Have been going to this restaurant for years however was dissapointed to see its been bought out by the same people that own every one of the restaurants along the front of this centre so whilst they badge them up as different restaurants they share, waiting staff, chefs and even have one card machine to share.

Whilst the service was nice and the waitress made an effort food was sadly quite mediocre in comparison to what this restaurant used to be.

Potion sizes were good and food nicely cooked but whole place lacked the original authenticity it used to have and it felt like eating in any Mexican chain.

Also wine was quite expensive in comparison to elsewhere, the same bottle of wine we have drank most evening was nearly 4euros more.

Fine for a quick meal but if like us you trearsure your evenings on holiday and choose locations with care probably one to miss.

We have been using this restaurant for over ten years but the new management have really lowered the standards of quality and service. They will get one last chance next week.

We have been to El Charro before but this was closed and the one next door El Mexicano was shown as now being one and the same (as well as the Italian next to them). We had a nice enough meal and the view is excellent as it is on a balcony on the sea side of the road overlooking the sea. The problem was that the food had no spice at all, it was nice flavour but no spice what so ever. Staff are nice and prices fine so if you dont mind the lack of spice and want a nice place (perhaps good for kids) then it is ok. Try Emma's Cantina Mexicana (see review) if you want a better Mexican.

This restaurant was not only the worst we ate in lanzarote, it's probably the worst I have eaten in my life! The food was dreadful and inside it a dive!

To top of the bad meal, the man what stands outside and tries and gets you to eat in this awful establishment, swore at me and my partner as we walked by the following evening.

Avoid at all costs! There are far better Mexicans just metres down the road.
