“Not bad for a dose of Mexican in the middle of Uganda”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Very cute little place just outside of IHK. Staff is very friendly and we had a great pork burrito, which reminded us of home...though the tortillas weren't quite "spot-on"...but we enjoyed the ambiance and had a good chuckle at the dinner special..."Nsenene quesadillas!" We'll have to go back and give it a try. :) I'm impressed that they've got solar lighting and the decor made me feel like we were in Cuernavacas. Thanks for a taste of Mexico!

“Good honest place”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Went there with my wife and even though i didnt like the food all that much, my wife really did. More than the food though, i really appreciated what the owners are trying to do with the school students and trying to cover their education. Its not everyday you see something like that.

“Chocolate and Churros!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

This is a fantastic restaurant, great food, and served with a smile. Great atmosphere, and Chicken Flautas are my new favorite having discovered them here.

They also do a lunchtime burrito bar which is well worth a visit for a quick snack during the day. How ever our favorite is to enjoy a Margarita pitcher in the evening on there lovely Mexican painted veranda with friends.

Don't forget to look/like up the magic Facebook word of the day to get your free Churros with Chocolate sauce.

“Best Mexican food in East Africa”
Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

Fresh churros and margharitas are amazing. Fantastic service. Great specials (e.g. Spicy Steak Tacos). Profits from the restaurant fund a very worthwhile school and social enterprise.

“Not quite like home, but still very nice!”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

For a homesick Texan, the food does not compare to the Mexican food I am used to at home. But for Uganda, this place does a wonderful job! The enchiladas and tacos are great, and the staff and service are wonderful! A must stop restaurant if you are in Kampala!
