The waitresses were more interested in talking amongst themselves than attending to customers. The food was terrible - the worst Mexican food i have ever had anywhere in the World and probably one of my worst ever restaurant experiences. The decoration and ambience are very...More

The food was terrible, tasteless and the waiter was rude and unprofessional. We will never recommend this place... as a Mexican, this kind of food and awful service will never represent us.

I went on valentines day with a friend and as we were eating a cockroach was running over the table. We got no discount no anything just the table changed. Disgusting. The food wasnt that good either and the mojito acapulco really terrible thing.

The food was quite bland and our server might have been drunk - or just really odd. But It was funky and fun and the live music added a nice touch.

I was prepared to like this place because of the ambience, but it was largely disappointing. It had the blandest Mexican food I have ever tasted in a restaurant. Also, the service was slow and inattentive. My entree arrived at the table at room temperature....More

This is a very good place. I am from Mexico and I can say they do serve autentic mexican food. True, the food is not gourmet and the menu also includes food for gringos (e.g.: nachos or something like burritos) but la sopa de tortilla...More

Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where
many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where
the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and
people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture
of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses

The second Barriga Llena in Madrid was opened in August 2008 on Gran Vía – the perfect location for this type of restaurant. Following in the same footsteps as the other restaurants in the group, Barriga Llena Gran Vía has a happy and colourful ambience with original decorations featuring Mexican culture. Curious fans hang from the ceiling, which have become one of the memorable characteristics of this restaurant. The other decorations are dedicated to memorabilia of Mexican music groups and artists. Barriga Llena offers authentic Mexican food as well as delicious salads, pastas, soups and meats cooked over the chargrill.
