A very yummy Mexican themed joint situated right around the corner from the Inntu Hotel, serving classic Mexican dishes. My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner meal after a long day of tourist activities, easily satisfying our nachos and cheese craving. The atmosphere was pleasant and the prices very reasonable. Nice place to enjoy a relaxing dinner in the... More

My girlfriend and I came to this place on a recommendation, I wasn't sure how much I was going to like it being from Southern California where Mexican food is probably the best outside of Mexico. So we we greeted by friendly staff and we're immediately seated. They server brought chips and salsa & guacamole that consisted of 12 to... More

The food was very good but definitely what I would call American-style Mexican food. It wasn't as spicy as authentic Mexican food and, just like American-style Mexican restaurants, they used a lot of cheese. Real Mexican food doesn't use that much cheese. The highlight was the limonada de coco, by far the best any of us had in two months... More

Its a nice restaurant, no doubt. The food is good and the service personal was friendly. I've heard quite a lot about the restaurant and was very keen going there. In the end I have to say that it could not keep up to what I've heard. It was a usual good restaurant with a nice atmosphere, but somehow something... More

Well, we should have known. After ordering we read the back of the menu. If our translation was correct, they did warn us that they do not use spice in their food. Wait! I thought this was a Mexican restaurant? When we asked the waitress if they had salsa picante, she brought us a dish of ... Something not even... More

Good nachos, some of the tacos were not as tasty and good as they could have been. Mainly the tacos al pastor. They forgot to serve one litchie limonade. .it did appear on the bill though. ..which was automatically removed when we point it out. Ok value for money. Nice little terrace. cocktails looked nice. Waiters could be more friendly.

Average mexican food, and uncomfortable chairs. Sorry! Service sketchy, too. In fairness, I have not found anywhere better for Mexican in Medellin.

The restaurant has one veggeterian option, a veg. burrito, but all they give you is a tortilla with a bunch of rice and lettuce, well, they put some two or three mushrooms. I tried to talk to the manager but I was told he was busy to see me. I live in the city but I will never go back... More

Not very good Mexican food place is loud service is good. The food was not very good this is not Mexican food it's more of a Colombian version of what they believe Mexican food is. Margaritas are small and water down.

I started going here in 2011. They serve excellant combination plates that are more than enough for two people. Mexican food is new to most Paisas but after we eat there, they want to come back again. Meals run about $8 - $10. They serve booze and beer but I don't drink. There seems to be about 5 other Mexican... More
