Description: El Paso is a truly original and unique Mexican restaurant and Steak House. Siuated just behind the park at the harbour, this true Mexican style restaurant has much more to offer than just the best tequila, steaks and Mexican food in town. This year celebrating 23 years in the business, it goes without saying that the ambiance and quality of food has been trusted by loyal customers for many years! Serving an extensive range of Mexican food such as Quessadillas, Nachos, Fajitas, Tacos, Chilli Con Carne and of course Burritos, you'll not know what to order first! Choose from mild to spicy dishes or go for a giant steak prepared to your taste. With plenty of exciting starters, main courses and desserts to choose from, one thing for sure is that you'll definitely leave feeling satisfied. In true Mexcian style, El Paso also serves specially selected tequilas to wash your meal down with including the infamous Mezcal tequila with the worm! Being the only place on the island with this speciality tequila, it is well worth trying it or getting a bottle just for the fun of it. If tequila doesn't do it for you then there are also plenty of speciality and signatures cocktails, wines and other drinks to choose from such as Mojitos. So, head down to El Paso to dress up like a Mexican and enjoy the food, entertainment, music, cocktails and overall ambiance for a once in a lifetime Mexican experience.

The setting of the restaurant is good in that they have tried to bring a bit of mexico to greece! The waiter was very friendly & the gave us hats to use for our photo.
The food was nice although a little bit pricey even with the 20% discount voucher. They'd be better ditching the voucher and just lowering the prices!
The chicken chimichangas were nice, the far west steak was also nice and very tender. The childrens chicken nuggets were nice and were served with proper chips!
Credit card payment is accepted but you have to go to the nearby supermarket to pay!!

We got a 20 % voucher at the curve outside the restaurant and gave it a try. But this place has a lot to improve;

A) starters: buffalo wings - worst ever, never seen or tasted anything even related to this piece of poorly made and sorry looking piece of chicken wing.

B) main: burrito and taco - never tasted worse. No resemblance to any Mexican dish. Even made the wrong way and with the wrong sidings.

C) price: 52€ for a shared starter, two main and 3 corona beers (33cl). The 20 % voucher was only for food.. and pre-VAT!

D) free after dinner drink was received, but basically a horrible tequila(?) with low grade juice and a taste one wish never to experience again.

E) service; ok for the area, but please don't to pretend that you speak Spanish when you clearly don't.

Summary:
Food horrible. Price horrendous. The voucher a sham. This place should for all times be avoided!

Total rib off.... Only interested in your wallet, overpriced and the food is just terrible..Taco Bell (not a fan) will provide you with an overall better experience... At the end of the day, stay away

We visited this restaurant with our 2 daughters. The service was poor ( except for Antony who made a great effort admittedly). The food was mediocre - tacos, burritos, and entchilada all tasting the same. The plates underneath were dirty. The location is nice. We have visited this restaurant many times in the past and it was'nt so bad.

We ate here on our recent holiday to Kos. This restaurant was recommended to us. We had the sharing platter, chicken fajitas and steak. The sharing platter was mainly ok but nothing special. The fajitas were nice but not as flavoursome as I was expecting. The steak was different to say the least. We did enjoy our meal but would not rush back. The service was good and quick and there was a really good atmosphere. The portions sizes were excellent. Was quite pricey even with the 21% discount!!!
