Description: The second Barriga Llena in Madrid was opened in August 2008 on Gran Vía – the perfect location for this type of restaurant. Following in the same footsteps as the other restaurants in the group, Barriga Llena Gran Vía has a happy and colourful ambience with original decorations featuring Mexican culture. Curious fans hang from the ceiling, which have become one of the memorable characteristics of this restaurant. The other decorations are dedicated to memorabilia of Mexican music groups and artists. Barriga Llena offers authentic Mexican food as well as delicious salads, pastas, soups and meats cooked over the chargrill.

As most people, I found the decoration very nice and fun. Food was good, although I'm not an expert in mexican food. I enjoyed the quesadilla flor calabaza, and the menu is reasonably priced: 9,90 for a first, a main dish, a drink and a dessert.

I don't really understand all the people who are saying that it is a good restaurant.
The waitresses did not smile once and when we've asked for some water, she brought us only one glass... I guess she did not noticed that we were two people.
The food was pretty bad also and the presentation of the dish was horrible. It just looked like if someone puked in it!
The only positive thing was the decoration of the restaurant, it was truly original, I loved it.

The food is very tasty and you can definitely share anything from the menu because the doses are really well served. Good Mexican restaurant in general. The staff is friendly and the decoration is ok. Chairs are very uncomfortable thouhg

We went because of the great reviews on Tripadvisor but were very disappointed. The quality and taste of the food were sorely lacking. I got a pan of boring cooked vegetables and some wraps to put them in. My friend got a pan with big slabs of meat and the same wraps. Both dishes were bland and overpriced. I do not recommend this place at all.

Really tasty mexican food in a colourful and funky environment. Sit in a torn out car seat underneath a VW Beatle which is hanging from the wall and drink 4 Coronitas for the cost of 5 Euros while you enjoy a mexican platter for two, filled with mouthwatering deliciousness. Just the right thing to do before you head out for a night in Chueca.
