We choose an offer wich included a starter, main course and a dessert. Did not get dissapointed! Real mexican beer, several kinds, and real tasty mexican food. Everything from molcajete, chili con carne, guacamole, salsa, tortillas and so on! Remember to reserve a table, or you might have to look elsewhere!

We really love tex-mex and found excellent food with good service. The portions were however on the smaller side and didn't fill as we expected, and we are not particulary big eaters

Hi Steinar B, thank you for sharing your experience, we are glad you liked it. Please note we are a traditional Mexican gastronomy restaurant, not a tex-mex one. Our portions are standard ones, next time please do not hesitate to ask our staff for more abundant options like Burritos, Taquizas, etc.. See you!

Very clean. Excellent service and great food for a fair price.
We ate here two times during our holiday and both times the food was great. We did not reserve but best would be to do because it can be busy. The inside looks well maintained and clean. And the food looks and tastes great. We ordered Enchiladas and a mixed beef and chicken plate.

We were not in Mexico... we were at “PLAZA MEXICO” in L’albir, Spain; but Montezuma’s Revenge is alive & well!

According to Google the Revenge is: “diarrhea suffered by travelers specially visitors to Mexico “. This restaurant has total disrespect for Mexican cuisine! We order the following dishes only to get violently “ ILL” within 15 minutes of eating the “Pechuga de pollo con mole” and “pollo tinga y chipotle” my friend became violently ill with “FOOD POISONING “. 4 TIMES! In the WC! Disgusting!

I don’t need to describe the rest! I described it to our waitress; she was clueless!

This is by far the worst Mexican food ever experienced!

The prior reviews are misleading; and it is obvious there is a lack of understanding of what properly prepared Mexican food is supposed to be! AVOID AT ALL COST IF YOU KNOW “MEXICAN CUISINE “.

Hi wpdg10,

Indeed we are an authentic Mexican cuisine restaurant and not a Tex Mex one, which you might be expecting. We travel every year to Mexico to find new trends and ingredients in order to respect the original receipts and cooking methods, a philosophy that has turned Plaza Mexico into a reference of the Mexican gastronomy of the region.

Regarding the "food poisoning", we have not received any complaints from any other costumers, but there are many other factors that could explain that reaction, like the heat or any adverse reaction your friend could have to any ingredient. Definitely not a food poisoning then.

Also, this year we have again received the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence thanks to the fantastic reviews of our visitors, appreciating the authenticity of our dishes.

We hope that all your doubts have been solved.
