The waiters are very friendly. Although the food is not actually authentic mexican, it is very creative and good. The dishes are well served, and the prices very fair.

The waiters are friendly, the restaurant is clean but the food is average, the atmosphere's really not mexican and the food is ok, you can eat it, but that's all. I do it better myself at home.

We arrived in Portorož on Monday after 10:30 pm. Papa Chico was opened. We had cold beer (they do not have local beer :(), big portions of food. The staff is good. If you like mexican food it is good place to have it.

it's like in Mexico: The food is good - the service needs improvment; maybe depending of the staff on duty. Have been there 3 times in 9 month and still unchanged. A kind of beergardens is nice but located close to the street. The food is typical mexican and excellent, incl. corona beer. A welcome alternative to Fish and Pasta/Pizza

It was in the late afternoon and we have been in 3 + 1 kid. Waitress who welcomed us has been kind and helpful thru all the time even though she has had quite plenty of work.
