Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

They have the facilities to make a good Pizza, however, they just can't make a good Pizza. The 'mozzarella' is more like the cheese one uses for cheese on toast. If you're going to serve Italian inspired food, then maybe get some inspiration from an...Italian. As a pizza connoisseur, I can confirm it is not goodMore

Wonderfully polite and attentive waiter, and very tasty food. This restaurant was the first one we tried in PDC and we were happy with the food. My husband had fajitas and I had nachos, which were both very tasty. I thought my portion size was...a little small for a main course, but it was delicious. My husband's steak fajitas were cooked to perfection Our daughter just had nuggets and chips so not much to comment on there 😅More

This place really is a gem. It was always busy, but no-one stood outside trying to badger you in, just a friendly "hola" as you walk by. We ate here twice in the 6 days we were there - food is beautiful and the team...at El Burro are really accommodating if you want to switch something around on the menu. The staff are lovely and friendly, and remember your names and play little tricks with the children who are dining (they have big Mexican hats for dress-up). The deserts are limited to different types of ice-cream but again, very delicious. Food and service excellent!More

We stopped in here on one of the last nights of our holiday. What a pity we didn't try it sooner. Food was delicious and staff were lovely...genuinely friendly and welcoming...not just 'putting it on'.

We feel in love with the place straight away. The food was amazing and the staff there are Even better. The staff were great with our daughter playing trick on her and played tricks on us. If you go there you must have the fajitas...they are the best ones I have ever had. The kids meals are amazing too. When we come back we will be going straight for food here. Thank you to the amazing staff there!!!More

Visited 5 years ago and had great food, this time, not so much. I had the fish platter and it was all over cooked. When I told them, the reason for my fish being over cooked was because my wife wanted her steak cooked well...done. Ok so it was my wife's fault? Sorry, not buying that. Everything else was as remembered and my wife's steak was good. We had a pleasant evening with good wine and good service. We will go back again I think but if it happens again that will be it.More

Service was very friendly in this restaurant in the old town but it is definitely not a Mexican! Nachos came without salsa or sour cream, just guacamole from a tube(!) and fajitas were poor, without any of the normal accompaniments. Staff were very accommodating of...our family but definitely can’t recommend the food.More
