    Very friendly service and nice to try Mexican cuisine and also some interesting drinks. The restaurant is rather big and lively, which also means it can get a bit noisy. We liked the food and drinks, and great to say its all home made. Overall I would say that the foods is reasonably priced also in terms of quantity but the drinks are on the very pricey side (cocktails CHF 17).

    Lovely place and atmosphere, excellent food, the waiters were all very nice. As they made us wait a little bit for one of the drinks we ordered, they didn't make us pay for it! That is quite unique, especially in Switzerland.

    Great atmosphere and delicious tacos, with plenty of choices. And be sure to try the margaritas too — my favourite is the passion fruit margarita. ????????

    Guacamole: excellent; Tortilla chips: not crispy, overcooked or else stale; tacos: delicious fillings, but served lukewarm and tortilla shells almost too tough to cut with a knife and fork; nachos: way too many chips, not enough cheese, served lukewarm; margaritas: perfect taste, but overpriced; arroz verde: served nice and hot, but I would prefer regular rice; black beans: perfect. Did not like having to make up my own order on a piece of paper, or the way plates were stacked and we had to set our own table without any placemats on the bare table. If you want customers to take their own order and set their own table, then you should lower your prices accordingly.

    The ambiance was really great, it was our first time there and being originally from Mexico we experienced a little bit of nostalgia but felt right at home when we arrived. Unfortunately, all of our food was really cold and the service was painfully slow. I have to say the place was packed and I want to think this was something exceptional. We look forward to come back, wishing service will be better and good will be hot. I am really glad we found a place that reminds us of home and look forward for a better overall experience next time.

    LOVE the food and drinks. On this particular night after waiting quite a while for the food we were told our order had been lost! However despite the one bad experience I will still be back!

    Excellent margaritas and guacamole! Hibiscus margarita is particularly amazing. Relaxed atmosphere, the food was very good - and we are coming from California where the Mexican food is killer. Would definitely do it again.

    The staff are so welcoming and so helpful, and just a fun atmosphere. I would have preferred my phone warmer, but, the cocktails made up for that..... that Bloody MARY, is a MUST.
