The 2 of us went there for a lighter meal and ended up properly stuffed :) 2 main dishes and a drink each got us to 35€. This is a pretty decent tex-mex with nice beans and sauce on the side and good portions. Take a starter only if you are hungry as a wolf, or share one for two.

The place is nice and typical mexican, right downtown Haarlem. The food is well displayed, made me hungry as soon as I saw it! Taste was quite good. The staff is kind and the service is quick enough. The toilet has to be seen...very peculiar... Prices are fair.

Plus:
* decent prices for the same quality food. Not spectacular in terms of flavor. Ok though. Some sisling foods are nice to try. Especially for the effect when it arrives at your table right?
* ok staff and atmosphere.

Minus:
* all a bit average. No real highlights when you go there.

Ok the food is nothing special, but it wasn’t bad and it actually reminded me of mexico.
Very friendly staff! It was getting pretty busy and we could see them struggling a little. The manager was trying the best he could with his young and poorly skilled employees (why do owners always think they can get away with hiring school kids?)
The food arrived fast and in good portion!!
Funny restaurant, if you don’t expect the world and just want a bite in Mexican setting this is your place.

This place was great. It was colorful and fun. The staff was super friendly and when I didn't like the smoked chicken on a salad, they gave me something else. I couldn't finish my meal and asked for the rest to go. I don't think they get that request very often. They seemed a little confused by my request. The manager came back with a plastic container wrapped in tin foil. It also had a sticker that said: This side up. It was so thoughtful, but at the same time funny. It was only 6 small pieces of cheese with a little side salad.

They had a menu in English and Spanish. It would be a great place for a date, family, or just alone. The food was wonderful and reasonably priced.
