Description: Winner of Tripadvisor's prestigious award, Certificate of Excellence, in 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017.! Upscale Mexican restaurant located in one of the best areas, close to Queens Palace. Announced as the best Mexican restaurant in Copenhagen by Borsen, one of the most well known newspapers in DK. High quality, nice atmosphere, professional and service minded staff have made El Viejo Mexico to one of the most famous Mexican restaurants in Copenhagen. We probably have the best selection of premium Tequilas in DK plus a nice selection of Mexican beer and wine from famous European and overseas houses. People love our Margaritas and Mojitos. Good recommendation for food will be menu 1.

This is my "go-to" place for Mexican food and mojitos. A colleague and I started coming here almost once a month about 2 years ago. The food and drinks are incentive enough to come, but the excellent staff is a welcomed bonus. We'll continue to come to El Viejo Mexico for a long time!

the coca cola zero was so tasteless, was fizzy but tasted to nothing, so we think that maybe it was due or something as coca cola zeros lose taste when they are passed their expiring date. The service was ok, the meat in the burritos was so yammy and soft but the rest of the dish including the salsas were a bit disappointing

Dear Guest,

We are really sorry about the Cola, but fortunately, those are not made by us and we just served it out of the bottle. It seems to be the service and food and the atmosphere matched the expectations, then it is may be a little unfair to give two stars because the cola was not ok.

We went expecting so so Mexican in Copenhafen, but turn out,best Burito and chicken wing... What impressed us is friendly service accomodate us in everyway. Olga is her name, she took time trued to mix cirgin Magarita even they don't offer on the menu. Ofcourse beedless to say, we went back twice, forget trying new dishes; we found what we loved and stick by it.

This restaurant allowed me to have a very special eveing with my guest. The service was excellent and the food was very tasteful! I am so glad I chose this place when scouting Mexican food restaurants for my special visitor to enjoy. I just sat back and let them take care of the evening. Delicous and unforgetable.
