We had a table reservation for 10 on a busy Saturday evening. We came, were seated and ordered our food - so far so good. I ordered a cider, but was brought a cider of another brand as apparently they were sold out of the first kind. She did ask if it was ok, but didn't say that it was... More

Ay Caramba! The purpose for our visit was a birthday party. We expected a relaxed bar & grill restaurant and Cantina delivered. All of the food, including all the quacamole disappeared in a matter of minutes. Food was spicy and flavorfull, but if you're looking for really spicy, mouth burning culinar experience, it's said to be arranged. + Right in... More

The food is really really good. We had Fajitas, Wraps and Meat in the both evenings. Price / Quality is good! Also,... More

Our family went to Cantina Azteca after work on Tuesday. We were the only customers at restaurant. I decided to order pork dish recommended by the waiter and the others ordered fajitas and hamburger dish. The dishes were huge disappointments. They were rather cold and flavourless. My pork was awful, easily worst dish I've ever eaten; it was gray, dry... More

We've been here many times during the last years because of the inexpensive sparkling wine and nachos (there are only a few restaurants that serve them). The portion size is enough for two as a snack but usually we order sour cream (not included) and some more guacamole or salsa if there's not enough. We have also tried quesadillas as... More

We had a good dinner in this restaurant with our friends. The starters were very big. My chicken fajitas was good, except the chicken itself. It was quite poor quality. All other ingredients were good. Anyway, nice atmosphere and good service, I'll give 4/5 points.

We enjoyed a few drinks in the upstairs bar, Papu. The atmosphere was nice (although the music was a little too loud at first) and the swings by the bar are just too cute. Drinks were well made but slightly pricey, around 8€ each. They do serve pitchers, though. We wanted some nacho plates from the restaurant downstairs, but apparently... More

…and the food has always been tasty, too. Even if it´s more tex mex than authentic Mexican. The fabrics are from Mexico, together with the huge portraits of the pyramids hey create a special feeling. I come here when I miss Mexico and it is comforting somehow.
