“best mexican food in Quito!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

I´ve tried about 10 mexican restaurants in Quito and this is the best one by far! Its not a fancy place, more like a cafe and its not in a touristy part of town but when I stopped by last sunday afternoon, the place was packed. Its only open during the day from Thur-Sunday. Meals were about $7-8 and $5 for a burrito. I don´t know why but mexican food is expensive in Quito so this price was a good value.

“Best mexican resto in town !”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Place is not really very welcoming, just looks like another $ 1.5 lunch place who find at every corner of Quito streets, but the food is just great ! I'm not fond of Mexican food (really !)... but I must admit it , food tastes so great ! Really recommendable for those who like good Mexican food !

“Better than the rest, hands down”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

There aren't any good authentic Mexican restaurants in Quito, because, well, there aren't any Mexicans in Quito. Who immigrates from Mexico to Ecuador? The other reason, is that no restaurant (besides La Michoacana) uses the proper fresh ingredients and follows the basic recipes. I would award five stars, but there aren't that many options on their menu, and they don't make fresh guacamole. Like every other "Mexican" restaurant in Quito, they use this store bought stuff out of a tube that doesn't really taste like anything at all.

“A must go place for a good taste of mexican”
Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

This place offers great food at very appropriate prices. The place itself isnt great and it lacks enough parking but you will soon forget that with the great food they do have.
