Food and drinks were sub-standard. TV in the saloon was a good idea, you can watch it while waiting the slow service. Orders were taken wrongly.

The experience felt like a first class scam as this is not a Mexican cuisine restaurant - even Tex-Mex food is better...! The selection of food (Guacamole - a tinny jar for 4 people! and other typical Mexican dishes) showed right away that the ingredients...More

There are very few Mexican restaurants in Istanbul and this place is fine for a try out. A decent mix of plates is offered and the beer choice is good. Good service and comfortable atmosphere, particularly at weekends.

Our night with my colleagues started very good but thanks to the waiter it ended really bad. He did not pay attention to us, he was rude and disrespectful. If you want a good treatment, do not choose ranchero!!!

The food and drinks are good in taste but this is not real or typical Mexican food. But it is a nice place for young people and the prices are normal for the Nisantasi area ($30 per person).

Absolutely outstanding, authentic "Tex-Mex" restaurant in the heart of Istanbul's Nisantasi district. Extensive menu..terrific "Aztec soup" (corn, cream and mild jalapeno chowder), Fajitas, chimichangas, enchilladas, a very satisfying "California burrito", nachos..Corona and Mariachi beers (among others) and decent margaritas in several flavors. Excellent service, generous...More

For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area
just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used
mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its
chic streets are considered the very heart of
contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of
fashion and a thriving business district meet to
create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a
residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining
