Top, friendly service and good food. Prices are high but that is normal for Mexican food in Switzerland. If you want heat, you need to ask for it. Spicy isn't usually spicy enough.

This is one of the few restaurants in town where you can still get a decent meal at 2 a.m.
As the other reviewers stated, the menu is rather "mexican inspired". The bar provides an impressive offering of Tequilas and Mezcals (with and without scorpions) be warned !

Service was awful, meal was incorrect and perhaps the blandest thing I've ever eaten. A terrible, disappointing experience.

I went there quite late (around 10.30pm - that's LATE in Bern). The food was great, the service was excellent! But the nearby bar was quite noisy.

But the staff quickly helped us move to a quieter table. The music was great and the ambience wonderful. It's a bit pricy though. But since we were there on a weekday, they actually gave us discount prices (we didnt even have to ask!)

Will go there again!

Prices are okay, no authentic Mexican food, but nobody would expect that. They will celebrate your birthday with a special birthday song...
