“Good Mexican food with a nice ambiance”
Reviewed 15 November 2012

This restaurant is one of our favorite restaurants in Zurich. But the quality of the meat is not always the same. Another problem is, if you order all you can eat, the service can be very slow. Other than these, we enjoy our food most of the time.

“One of the best Mexican restaurants in Zurich...”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

...and I´ve tried many of them. Went here for lunch with a friend last week (the Meilen restaurant) We sat outside, with a view of the lake. Good food -- though the service was relatively slow... The menu was good and the Mexican food was good. The margaritas were also good...

“Beware of lunches - take the time for dinner”
Reviewed 2 August 2012

The food and atmosphere here is wonderful. We went with Mexican friends, and they totally approved of the eats - except that the tortillas were made with the wrong ingredient.

Another time, I went with two friends for lunch. It really stunk that they totally shut down at 14.00 and basically gave us the bum's rush. We are closed - finish your coffee and get out. Not nice!
