Went with my wife and kids for dinner on a Saturday evening. We were hungry so went to the nearest place we could find from frankfurter tor. Won't make this mistake again. Flavour free guacamole, stale verdure and even a tamarind sauce which didn't have any taste. Everything felt like it was made from ready-made flavouring that was past expiry.... More

This place is a very nice Restaurant, specialized in MEXICAN CUSINE. The Food was tasty, reasonably priced,with fast Service, and it is recommendable. The seating is a bit old.fashioned, but comfortable, and the waiters are quick and friendly.

This place is really great, Everyone in there, including me, was digging into their lovely food, and the portions are very generous. It's really fresh food and the side salad was plentiful and fresh with a really nice dressing. Plus I have been there a few times now and tried out many dishes (vegetarian) from the menu and have never... More

The only good thing abut this restaurant is the location. I love Mexican food so thought I would give it a try. Unfortunately, I was truly disappointed. The food was tasteless and the quality was awful. We spend 30 euros for two cocktails and two meals which were not worth the money at all. Wouldn't recommend.

When we arrived here, we ordered first and then I checked the Tripadvisor....and was a bit shocked. But after all when we got our food it wasn´t that bad. Ok food, not that delicios, but not bad either. There was only one girl serving the whole restaurant.

All I can say is that my 2 experiences of this restaurant within a couple of days of each other, do not reflect the negative ones appearing on this site. On each occasion I had an excellent pepper steak in a cream sauce with pommes frites plus an ice cream dessert. For main course, dessert, mineral water and an alcoholic... More

Nothing about this place is Mexican except maybe their cheesy name. My veggie burrito was refried beans, rice, corn and carrots. Taco Bell puts together better veggie burrito. I asked for hot sauce like Tabasco or salsa and the server had no idea what I was asking for. He the. Showed me the cup of oil with crushed red chilliest... More

Bleak, tasteless food and an attitude that almost gave me a heart attack! We were 33 people that just walked in and asked if it was ok and that they had capacity to serve us. Yes, they said. More than 30 minutes differed from the first one served to the last. But the worst thing was that when one of... More

This place is just totally awful, in all honesty we were a large group, nonetheless, food was slow coming out of the kitchen. The final nail in the coffin was when one of us got a plastic cocktail pin in the food and after pointing this out was accused of bringing the pin and deliberately putting it in the food!... More

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighbourhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
