We had the platter starter which was reasonable tasty but not great- it helped that we were starving. The guac seemed like it came from a jar but wasn't too bad to be fair. We asked for quesadillas for main. It wasn't on the menu...More

I should have known better, but still decided to give it a go. This is a poorly executed faux-Mexican themed place. Expensive for what it is, very bland food (still don't understand how you can prepare 'Mexican' food that barely has any taste), sad atmosphere....More

My hubbie is from the states and very disappointed about the quality of Mexican food in the Netherlands. That being said, apparently Popocatepetl (a place I've loved to eat for a few years) actually serves good quality food. Nice atmosphere and yummy dishes!

Good tortilla and good pepper sauce. It is good option to diversify in Haia. Great service. Menu in english.

We stopped for dinner around 7pm and had quick serviced or 5 people (all meals within 15-20min). The portions were huge so we should have order less. 4 meals for 5 people would still be a lot.

The bartender and the waiter were lovely people. The highlight of this dinner. It not for them we'd probably still be sitting at the bar, forgotten by the host. The menus and the restaurant are filthy, in general. The margarita come from a pre made...More

Decent Mexican food in the Hague. Can get nice Margaritas, Nachos, Burritos and everything you expect. Spices are a bit off and it's not as authentic, but as good as you're going to get in the Hague.

Last time I went to Popo year ago and that experience was good. This time it was a disappointment. We took the big starter for two, it was very good and it came in like 15 mins which is okay. But after we finished the...More
