This is the best Mexican restaurant that I've been to in the states! It compares to upscale traditional restaurants that I've been to on visits to Mexico! The menu has a great variety and the Pineapple Jalapeño Margarita is a Must!!

We went as a group of 5. We had a terrific meal, much better than the restaurants that pass of as Mexican. The food here is adventurous, tasty and well priced. The service was very good and there was a good wine list that the waiter understood.

My husband and I stayed at the Fairmont Princess this past weekend and decided to stay on site for dinner Friday night. We eat tacos at least once a week back home, so it was an easy choice to choose this among our other options. I'm currently eating Whole30 and my husband is kind enough to put up with me.... More

We had a business meeting with hors d'oeuvres outside on a beautiful night in March. We then went inside for dinner and the Mexican food is good and the margaritas are also very good. It's a great environment and the five star service of Fairmont.

La Hacienda has been here for many years. The menu seems to have changed over the years, and they have (unfortunately) eliminated the strolling musicians. They also eliminated the roast pork which is carved at your table. Too bad -- that was really fun. I would say that the menu has improved with gourmet touches. This is not the usual... More

We stopped in at the 'La Hacienda' restaurant at the Fairmont Resort for an early dinner. The concierge at the hotel mistakenly booked us for the wrong date, so there was a bit of consternation at the hostess kiosk when we arrived. Eventually, all was sorted out with no problem, but the rather cool reception by the hostess was not... More

Had no choice but to dine here with friends who wanted to try this restaurant. I realize that if you don't like spicy food, then you probably shouldn't go to a Mexican restaurant, however I had no choice and was advised by the waiter the fajita chicken breast was the mildest thing on the menu. The guacamole without chilis was... More

Jaw-droppingly expensive, this has got to be the most sub-standard Mexican food I've ever had, and that scopes holes-in-the-wall to five-star cuisine. After two meals here (you're stuck in the resort, so forced to return) the lesson learned is that main dishes just aren't worth it. Stick to the appetizers (the queso is the standout).

I went to La Hacienda for the first time while staying at the Fairmont with a large group. The drink list was extensive and the bartenders were very knowledgeable. The food was fantastic (try the Tampiquena or the Carnitas Hacienda) , but I was a little disappointed in the service. Our server did not come to check on our meal... More
