This is 1 of the better Mexican restaurants in the Bellingham area. They have a very large menu and all the items seem to be good. They have good daily specials and everything seems to be reasonably priced. They also have a full bar which is nice if you're wanting a margarita to go with your meal. The atmosphere itself is not bad but the decor is outdated. I like eating here because it's cheaper than some of the other local Mexican restaurants and the food is just as good if not better. The servers are also very friendly and attentive.

There is nothing outstanding about the food. The menu is extensive. The atmosphere is festive. But it is just run of the mill Mexican like so many others.

Of all the El Gitana restaurants, this one is be far the best. We love eating here and can always find something good, the right size, and reasonable prices. Very good wait staff.

My wife and I stopped in for a quick lunch last Saturday. The service was excellent as we were seated immediately with chips and salsa to start. The menu is very extensive with so many great choices. The food was excellent and the servings were so large we had to take half of it home. Prices are reasonable - so if you like Mexican food - this is the place to eat!!
We will be back.

Sit in the bar! Always so much fun with fabulous margaritas and great service. The fajita burrito is my favorite! Plenty to save for lunch the next day! Victoria is the best!
