Really pleased with my choice of fish tacos and my son seemed to enjoy the ribs so it's easy to recommend this place for its food. Nothing wrong with the service either since it was friendly and quick. Also the mexican type lager from a...local brewery was a pleasant surprise - thanks for revommending it.More

This restaurant offers great mexican food with relaxed atmosphere. Decoration is mexican streetstyle with old rugs and graffiti. Food is delicious with good amiunt of spices. Great choices of beer and drinks. Didn’t check wine list. There was also dj playing funk/g funk styled music...which fits great for this restaurant. Only minus comes from slow service/kitchen.More

Decided to try this small Mexican place in the middle of Kuopio. Easy to find, mut there is another mexcian place, which is sharing the terrace with Panza, so be careful to sit behind right tables. We had the dog with us and were prepared...to sit outside, but we were invited inside saying that dogs are welcome. Nice feature if you are a dog people. Certainly added value to me 😊 interesting deco inside, lots of graffiti like paintings, props etc. skull logo is present everywhere. Service was fast and good. Doggie got water without asking 👍. We got beers 😊 beer selection not so wide, but some good choises. cocktail list is interesting and long. We nachos was a good starter (one portion was enough for two, maybe two salsas had been better). House salsa was awesome 👍 not too hot. There is a wide selection of hot sauces on the table. Ordered tacos. Soft tacos, excellent fillings. Enjoyed a lot. Good flavours 😋 at least in surf and turf version. Service worked all the time during dinner and food came quickly. One star is missing because of the lousy looking terrace. Rusty chairs and tilting tables. Maybe some upgrading in that part next time. Adios and I will be back 👍More

Came here for a casual meal with friends on a Saturday evening. The place came packed with eaters in just a few minutes after our arrival, always a good sign when the place is popular. The service was swift, our drink orders came really fast...and also the starters were on the table only after a short while. They have really nice local beers on tap and the ladies had margaritas, we were told they were excuisite! High recommendations on the salmon chevice and the pimento de padron. For main course we had tortillas carnitas and the ribs, both were fantastic! The ribs were the best I've had in a long time. Meat was just falling of the bone and it was still succulent and moist, so nothing could have been better 😍 5/5, definitely will eat again! 🌮🌮🌮More

Brisk Mexican bar and restaurant in Kuopio. Similar as many trendy places in Helsinki, but without idle-time in queue. Best restaurant in Kuopio by far. Moscow mule is worth of trying.

Ruoka on aina todella hyvää, alkupaloista ceviche ehdottomasti kokeilemisen arvoinen. Hinta-laatusuhde hyvä ja tunnelma aina rento! Toimii myös hyvin paikaksi jos haluaa pelkästään drinkeille. Food is always good, from starters ceviche is worth trying. Prices are average. The atmosphere is always easygoing and the decor...is fun. Also good place only for drinks!More

Food wasn't good and cold. Didn't like it at all. Drinks where ok. In the end too expensive and not a good experience.

Standard good quality food. Friendly service. Make a reservation if you want to play it safe. Try the sea food tacos, the best.
