“Mexicanish food, not real mexican, ok but as good as everyone says”
Reviewed May 23, 2009

I live 300 M from here and figured we would go check it out. I eat mexican often in LA and New York and this might be good for Madrid but its not anything like good Mexican. If you are from Europe then for you it might be great, if you have been to mexico or the states you will be left disappointed.

First of all the portions were small. Mexican food is cheap food generally, and you expect some "filler' of beans or rice. You wont get that here. I would have had to order 3 entres to get a meal (I am not fat, but I have had more food off the back of a truck in LA for $2 then from here for 15 euros). A side of guacamole was 8 Euros for about 1 avacado worth and wasn't that good (no lime, onion, etc, just a mashed avacado). Generally the food was over cooked and uninspiring. It was a Spanish version of Mexican food.

We complained on the way out and the manager said, "come back and I will give you a big plate of real mexican!" I haven't taken her up on the offer.

There is another Mexican place on the other side of Segovia 150M away which is about the same (not reviewed) but also uninspiring, over-cooked, and yet another on Segovia on the opposite side of the wall that the restaurant shares with the adjoining street (never eaten there). My advice would be that if you crave Mexican make it at home because there are no good Mexican restaurants in Madrid.
