We have been hearing about Cafe Escondido ever since we arrived in Girona, popular as it is with the North American expat community who will have no shortage of good tex mex options back home. Our first visit was also our third passing, because they are closed through Sundays and Monday lunch, but the wait was certainly worth it. The... More

The best Tex-Mex in the city. High quality good prices. People so gentle. Nachos with cheese and Enchilada recomended. If you want to drink a spot try a Cucaracha.

Worst food I've ever had, avoid at all cost!! I ordered chicken fahitas. All I had was 1 tortilla wrap with very little chicken in it and was very bland!! No guacamole or salsa. When I complained to the owner he just laughed!! AVOID!!!

I've eaten at Escondido twice now. The first time it was 15 or 20 minutes before a waiter came to take our order, but we were the first diners of the evening. The second time my friend and I weren't paid much attention too. However I feel that the prices are very budget-friendly. You can have a decent portion of... More

None of the dishes have the real Mexican flavor at all!!! It's a waste of time and money and the only remarkable thing to say is the decoration, which is pretty nice.

Average tex.mex restaurant. Give it a miss if there is an iimportant football match on, as the waiters might be more interested in the game than your food and you as a customer.
