Whilst wandering around Interlaken on the afternoon of our arrival we noticed this Restaurant so returned later to eat. The staff were really friendly and we ate chicken enchillada and steak enchillada both of which were very tasty, along with a shared dessert of a pancake with mexican caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream which was delicious, washed down with...

I always crave Mexican food and was happy to come across this restaurant. The owner of this restaurant was very friendly, and kept adding more tequila to our margaritas. He even gave us free shots on our way out! Danke! The food is very good BUT, don't forget that you're in Switzerland and even Mexican food is expensive here. My... More

Not only some of the best Mexican food outside of Mexico but the most excellent service and entertainment by the owner himself playing the guitar and getting a good party going. The Margaritas are super. If you only have one night in Interlaken this place should be your place to eat. Second visit in the last couple of years and... More

Great food and friendly service, love that the owner pulls out his guitar on weekends and sings traditional music. A bit on the expensive side but worth it. Also they make killer margheritas which you can get by the jug!

So after a lot of swiss food we wanted to have spicy food. That's how we end up going El Azteca and it was so satisfying. The place serves almost authentic Mexican food in a very unlikely place. There was live Mexican music (I am not sure whether it was Mexican honestly) but it was quite pleasing. We order topped... More

we had dinner on a rainy night in mid September, and the restaurant was warm an inviting. We had been there the year before and the food was every bit as good. My wife had a vegetarian meal--a huge salad and pronounced it one of the freshest she had ever had. I had beef enchiladas which we very good, and... More

Food was really delicous, service a little slow but friendly. We thought it was a little overpriced.

As a Mexican I know about Mexican food is not the best but it will be the most Mexican you can find in Europe. It took me back home.
