This place is loved by the locals, always crowded, and waiting line is 20/30 minutes long. very good flavor, unique style of tacos and other tapas. But quantity is small and expensive for small tacos.

We had a nice meal here. The service was almost too attentive as our water glasses were continuously refilled despite having a bottle of water on the table. Feel like we were too close to the people around us. It was too close to have...More

Specialty, "high end" Mexican food that didn't work for my wife and I, who both like Mexican food usually. Guacamole was good, but the tacos had a different/weird taste that we didn't care for. Very dark and small, so it is really hard to see...More

I’ve been dining here for years and it’s still my number one place for fine Mexican dining. Pros: The food, the service, and definitely the cocktails. Cons: The small space. I wish they would expand. It would limit the sometimes horrible wait times, long lines.

This every expanding gem in the heart of Geneva is a must visit for the adult food and beverage adventurer. Be aware of long waits during peak time, but it's worth it. Get there early and start with their Cazuelitas de Champinones. (wild mushrooms, chile...More

Bien Trucha is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants, and it seems like it is for a lot of others as well! They do not take traditional reservations, I think they do a call ahead wait list, but generally if you go there before opening...More

If you mean does it have a kids menu, the answer is no, so if your kids will eat the regular adult menu items, then it IS kid friendly.
