I really love the Carne Asada Quesadilla that this place makes. I am no specialist in Mexican cuisine but really the flavour is something out of this world. I am a usual customer.

For people who aren't familiar with really great Mexican food, this might do the job, but in truth, it's just way too bland. The margharitas aren't special l, either. And people serving are not the polite kind except for the guy with the glasses. Never again.

The service was very slow even though the restaurant wasn't busy (they seemed to focus on deliveries while a simple order in the restaurant took 40 minutes). The tacos were not only extremely greasy but also clearly made with very low quality meat. Very small portions for prices that are quite high for Berlin standards. Definitely not going back.

We serve 180gramms of high quality Sirloin beef as 3 tacos for a price that reflects it´s quality and lot´s of work that goes into fresh and hand made products. Most of our guests are very happy with it. Not expensive for Berlin nor for it´s quality. More

Stopped by for dinner Mexican eats and they did not disappoint. Great prices for delicious food. The tacos were good however a little great for the bacon but i guess that's why it tasted good. Quick service at its order and pay at the same time. In a great area to relax and eat with friends.

Fancy some nachos or a quesadilla or enchilada? This Mexican hole in the wall's just great. They do amazing Mexican dishes. Make sure to grab some of their spicy sauces too. If you go for a main, don't order additional nachos, it's simply too much food :)

One of the best Mexican places in Berlin. But be aware: it's an imbiss only. So in winter you literally stand inside the kitchen or in summer you share a long table with other outside. But the food is great. Especially the beef dishes are delicious.

Wow, it almost felt like I was back in Mexico. Take the tacos carnitas! Really nice taste, price quality is OK, would certainly recommend eating here.

Regarding the food: just great! You can choose between tacos, burritos or quesadillas with different types of meat. The tortilla chips are also really great with guacamole. Staff: super nice and helpful if you can't decide what you'd like. Locale: not the nicest looking place, and it's not really that big. I personally took it to go and wouldn't mind... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
