Large tears in the dirty table cloth, made us change tables
The waitress did nothing about that.
Expensive, food too salt , very basic, and does not taste mexican.
Service not very friendly, waitresses in old blue jeans
The large standard glass of cold water with ice cubes , as served
in other american / or mexican restaurants , all over the continent
was not offered

We went to El Mexicano twice whilst in Curacao. On both occasions we had a great meal. Good value for money and a great atmosphere.

We had the combination platter in which my boyfriend found a mutilated toothpick...and the drinks came out after the food, 3/4 full :/ THEN, we got comped a piece of cake which was less than a 1/2 thick and miserable looking. If we didn't have a balcony view of the ocean I would've walked out!

We had a dinner and drinks in El Mexicano. We ordered some nachos & guacamole to start with and had then tapas for dinner. Guacamole was watery, everything else was good, no fireworks in your mouth but good basic food. We enjoyed most the chicken with date & bacon and the shrimp teriyaki. Service was good and drinks too. Ok place to visit.
