We made our second visit to Emma's a few weeks ago, and the food was as tasty and fresh as the previous year. I agree with other reviewers that the portions are smaller and prices are higher than in other restaurants in the town. However, the quality of the food is much higher, and the menu much more varied. The complimentary tortilla chips and salsa upon arrival is a nice touch, and provide a good guide to the relative hotness of the dishes on the menu. The restaurant is small, with little outside space, so bookings might be necessary at busy times. It also means that the presence of a large group can make the restaurant noisy. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and I would definitely return.

Came here last year and enjoyed so wanted to return - we weren't disappointed. As always, great food in a lovely atmosphere. Would recommend to Mexican fans!

We had dinner in Emma cantina last night and the food was amazing. Unfortunately the portions were tiny even the kids portions were small also it was quite expensive. The decor was beautiful and the staff were very nice.

Visited this restaurant twice and the Fahittas are great but they only give you 3 tortilla wraps which is not enough so you will have to purchase at least 1 more. Nice ribs, tried Enchillada too. Quality refried beans, Had banana fried in butter dish for desert (was thinking it would be special) and this was really dissapointing and way overpriced. Went back twice and you do get 15% off any subsequent visit as long as its on Thursday or Sunday. Expensive but worth a visit.

We never go to PDC without a trip to Emma's. We were sad to discover that Mike had passed away as he was a great guy.
The food as usual was delicious and the service friendly and efficient.
Another delightful evening.

Many thanks.
