We came here for drinks originally, the tropical margs are yum, and loved it so much we booked dinner for the following evening. The food was excellent! We are both vegetarians so had veggie tacos to start and then followed with a chimichanga and burrito. Menu was filled with a great mixture of meat and vegetarian options. A cheery on top, the staff were lovely. Highly recommend coming to this restaurant!

We visited here tonight after reading the positive reviews on trip advisor, they are not wrong. I am vegan as I have a milk allergy and am vegetarian so I was somewhat a bit worried about my holiday to Crete, my husband is not. Here we we’re quickly seated and ordered our drinks and wine. I asked for recommendations on food and the very friendly waiter advised me and I ordered vegan tacos to start and then vegan fajitas. My husband had chicken wings and then a beef burrito. The food came out quickly, and wow it was great, huge portions! My Husband got wings, I had 4 tacos. What we loved was that there was 4 varieties of hot sauce on the table! All amazing! The wine was the best Sauvignon blanc we have had! It is local too, normally we order a New Zealand but this was way better! After our starter the main was fantastic, big portions again! We also witnessed some young lads ordering loads of food, far too much and saw that the waiters/waitress boxed up their leftovers for them. Overall the best food we had, great service, amazing local wine! Absolutely recommend!

Overall lovely experience with some of the best Mexican food I’ve tasted! On arrival at the restaurant, couldn’t believe the stunning setting right with views right across Hersonisos. Staff were really welcoming and friendly. Only downside was after ordering our drinks and food, drinks arrived and we then waited around 45 mins and none of our starters had arrived. The female staff member did come over and was very apologetic explaining that a technical error had occurred when placing our order through the digital device. When the food arrived, it was worth the wait. We had the jalapeño poppers and tacos for starters and chicken quesadillas and chicken fajitas for mains. All were so tasty but beware, huge portions and starters probably not needed. To top off a lovely experience, the waiter brought us a free brownie desert due to our long wait for food. Highly recommend this place and will definitely return when I come back to Hersonisos!

We had a dinner with friends in El Puerto, food was amazing, never had real mexican meal before, but now I start to love it. Served beautifully, delicious and 1 plate enough for at least 2 persons! Little spicy, cheesy, fresh guacamole, quesadillas, burrittos...Everything you can imagine!! And the coctails- beautiful design glass, served with fresh fruits and decors, tastes so good! We all were so excited and full. Definitelly comming back and recommend others. Suggest to book a table before, on terrace, view to the sea.

All round amazing, would highly recommend. The service was great - special shout out to Demetrius who was so lovely and incredibly helpful and friendly. The food was also amazing. My boyfriend and I love Mexican and it was one of the best we’ve had. The steak fajitas and cocktails (Down in Mexico and Mojitos) were delicious. Can’t wait to visit again soon. Thank you again for a lovely meal.

This is the best Mexican I have ever been to. The food and service was amazing. The menu was huge there was so much variety to choose from! We had the spicy soup and Grande Nachos to start - unreal. Definitely go hungry. For mains we had the beef and chicken tacos and also the beef quesadillas to share. The portions were huge and of an amazing quality. Also had the churros to finish which again we great. For drinks we had the Down in Mexico and El Amor cocktails which were the best cocktails I had whilst on Holiday. If I could go back here right now, I would.

Booked this restaurant after a good recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed. Views are great, staff attentive, but most importantly food was excellent. We ordered nachos with dips to share and then 3 mains but the waiter recommended that was too much food. We were thankful for that as the portions are huge! Shredded chicken Chimichanga was superb as was the burrito. We stayed up in Koutouloufari but ventured down to Hersonossis and glad we did. Well worth a visit.

I ordered a frozen margarita which came straight out of the machine was 200 ml and had absolutely no alcohol 11 euros it costed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! next i ordered nachos with pico de galo which was not even a sauce a about 5-10 cubes of tomato a bit of choped onion and a few leafs of ciladro. no lemon or salt this sorry excuse of pico de galo was too little for them nachos. Next came tacos biria which had an unbelievably few pieces of meat, avocado sauce and cheese sauce (everything straight from a can i bet). They even acompanied them tacos with a bit of consome. Paid 36 euros (14 for food and 22 for 2 margaritas), was hungry immediately after (its all fat and sugars) and next day stomach hurt and went 10 times to the toilet

We came to El Puerto on two nights of our stay because we enjoyed the food and the atmosphere! It feels way less touristic than the rest of the restaurants along the beach, which is what drew us in. You can sit directly by the beach, which we did and loved. 🌊 On the second night I got served fajitas instead of quesadillas probably because of my own mistake when giving up our order and the very lovely waitress was very accommodating and brought me my intended order without added cost!

We visited this Mexican restaurant with my friends and it was the best meal we had in Crete so far! The hostess was so kind with us and because the restaurant was full and the waiter was busy, the hostess explained us the whole menu and she also took our drinks order to not let us wait! The food was a bit late but we are on vacation so we just enjoyed the view with nice music on the background! As it comes for the food… 100/10! Everything was greater than what we expected, need birria tacos, enchiladas beef and fajitas 50/50 tasted so yummy! We also got some nachos grande to share and some other starters to share. Be ready to try the beef empanada, ellote and the chicken buffalo wings!

Extremely quick service. Food tasted excellent, but had the feeling that all recepies came down to almost the same ingredients. Quite heavy food as well. Amazing cocktails. Don't like the obligation of a smartphone to check the menu. There is one tablet per table, and when asked for an extra menu, you get a qr code for your mobile. I prefer a good old fashioned paper menu.

Our expectation for this restaurant were big but they did not disappointed us at all! The view was fantastic, the staff was really good and always with a smile. As it comes for the food they had many options in the menu for gluten free, vegan and vegetarian people and the most serious they had also food for a kid possible to eat. Our daughter loved the bbq beef ribs, me and my husband had the beef fajitas and the pork tomahawk, from the one side our food was too much from the other side we enjoyed it a lot. Thanks to our waitress (she was really cute and kind) we also got a wine she recommended us and it was really close to Nour taste!

We joined this restaurant with my friends and we had one of the best nights. The mix tacos was interesting as an appetizer with the buffalo wings and the papas fritas. For main I got the enchiladas with beef which was spicy😋 We ordered exactly what our waitress said and she was really helpful!

Looking at other reviews and agree that the location is great and the staff efficient. However if you know about Mexican food this is the poor cousin. We ordered nachos, a popular starter, we were surprised to be served a large bowl of nachos and two very small shallow dishes, one with cheese and the other minced meat, no guacamole or sour cream. The mains were ok but not very hot. We were disappointed.
