The restaurant is just a little off the beaten path, but is really worth seeking out. The food is miles away from the generic fare found in the typical British 'Mexican' restaurant. The staff are friendly and helpful and they gave us really good advise on what to choose. The food is served tapas style so,you get to try a range of dishes. The salsa de chile de Arbol is a brilliant accompaniment. They also have a good range of Mexican beers including Pacifico and I can recommend the excellent, ice cold Margaritas.

I can't comment on Mexican restaurants in the rest of the world as I haven't been to them, but certainly if you want to try something that is totally different from most British McMexican restaurants, do try here.

Really glad we visited this place. Oscar was really welcoming and offered a menu of 5 of the most popular dishes; a great idea if you don't know your enchiladas from your piñatas! Nice change from tapas!

My family had lunch there on our day trip in Seville. That was by far the best Mexican we've ever ate. The chef Oscar is very welcoming and pleasant, but the restaurant is a bit out of the way but still worth the walk!

This cute little establishment is tucked away but worth finding if you are looking for something different. The Chef comes to personally greet you at your table and explains the workings of his restaurant. It is very authentic Mexican food in tapas style so it's easy to share. The only downside I found was the limited vegetarian/vegan options. Plenty of 'carne' if that is your thing. You won't find generic 'fast food' Mexican here.

Great service from the chef, the quacamole (and spicy side spice) was especially good. Compared to recent dinners in Mexican restaurants in other countries this one really stands out. It was recommended to us by a friend that had visited before.
