Well worth a visit to this restaurant in the old town as this was the best mexian food we have had anywhere, very friendly staff and owners. You can tell from the quality of the food that it is all fresh and prepared to very high standards. Some of the dishes i had never seen on mexian menu's elsewhere and it was so good we went twice in the week we were there. All in all a great dining experience.

Was sent here by one of our reps “thanks Jack” and we were not disappointed food was fantastic and the service was a very high standard.
As for the price a bit more than we would normally pay but when we had the food we soon forgot about that.

Many thanks for a very enjoyable evening we were the last to leave that night so you may remember us.................. t & S

tucked away in the old town a good quality tex mex cooked by an actual mexican. Clean place with an extensive menu including many veggy options. The girls who serve are very pleasant and explain how to judge the level heat in your food and if you are new to mexican they provide a medium hot sauce and tortillas so you can judge what to pick. We ate here twice and had a decent bottle of wine for 9 euros on the second visit, on the first visit they gave us a discount card for 15% off if we dinned on Thursday or Saturday

The restaurant was a bit quieter and more subtle than others around it, but we were so glad went ate at Emma's. The food was excellent and the service superb. Food didn't take too long and we were looked after excellently throughout. Large vegetarian menu was very refreshing to see, while the meat was 'melt in your mouth'.

Just as good as the last time we visited. It was great to be able to sample a number of dishes, we had the Plato para Compartir to start , Emma's Tex-Mex Fiesta and Solomillo Fillet Steak which was cooked exactly as ordered. There is a 15% discount on Thursdays and Sundays so we made two visits.Welcome and service are as good as ever. I am surprised to see another reviewer complain about food being cold as we were asked several times during the meal was everything ok and I have no doubt any problems would have been addressed. There is no comparison between this restaurant and other "Tex Mex" restaurants in PDC , this is the real deal.
