Description: Having been once to Mexico, one wants to be back there again. The fierce heat of the sun, desert and prickly cactus are not the only highlights of the country; it has many wonders to offer, like the mariachi playing guitars, gorgeous dark beauties who entertain the local macho with their flamenco dances. Mexico is the country of tequila, most exotic cocktails, and inexperienced emotions.Having opened in May 2000, the first Mexican restaurant in Yerevan soon became one of the most frequented spots in the city. Over the years, the restaurant has hosted a variety of festivals, has won at several contests, thus earning a great reputation among the city residents, mass media, politicians, show businessmen and tourists. Jovial Mexican spirit catches one’s eye upon entering the restaurant. Warm and cordial welcome, nice interior and lively atmosphere, filled with the tunes of Mexican and Latino music devour you in the air of fiesta. High-quality service, live music, and nice surprises are as entertaining as ever.We boast the richest bar in the country that offers you a great variety of spirits and soft drinks, distinguished and exclusive cocktails, made by the best barmen in the world, winners of international contests. Our Mexican corner welcomes you with its car parking, free delivery, broadband internet, and plenty of other surprises.

“Nice Mexican with live music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

The homemade tortillas was really good, and together with great meat this was a nice place to eat. Live music to go with the food is not something i think they have every day - the staff seemed to enjoy it more than something they run with too often

“Only Mexican restaurant in Yerevan but pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

If you're seeking Mexican food it's great, great drink menu as well, but VERY pricey. Like the outdoor seating area.
