From time to time I visit El Popo and must say that it is overestimated right now. Each year the quality of meals is getting worse. Not so good value anymore.

I was expecting a nice mexican restaurant with generous plates but the food was quite scarce... I didn't like it, and it was expensive even for Poland.

My friends took me to Mexican restaurant EL Popo. It was nice designed place, service was ok, food was very mediocre, the soup was so salty that my friend had to return it. The duck was overdone and not so good. Someone would expect sizzle freshness with some aromatic spices with lots of veggies and souses. Unfortunately it wasn't the... More

Why? The service was aggressive but kind. Every few minutes "would you like have another glass or a bottle?" The food was horrible. The fish soup was not what we expected. The Margaritas where probably virgin and the worst I ever had. Guacamole was close to OK. Whatever we ordered the test was neutral. No taste otherwise. The music was... More

I was here with work and I was pretty impressed after having some really poor Mexican food at other places around the country. The guacamole was made at the table, the margaritas were great and all of our main meals were outstanding.
