Lively atmosphere, friendly staff, gracious owner, and the best Mexican food (especially the guacamole) we've found in Munich yet. Bright, fresh, generous entrees and an extensive drink menu. Be advised: CASH ONLY

The location is a bit off Munich centre but still easy to reach. Extremely friendly, welcoming and caring staff. The food was superb and the prices are OK. We'll definitely come back 😀
