went there for a birthday , table for 8, only one of us enjoyed there dinner. For authentic food it was very flavourless. Service was not great, chefs should be fired. If you can not even make a decent refried beans and mexican rice why bother. Way overpriced for the tasteless food. Salsa , guacamole, and sour cream , are... More

This week my husband and I thought we would try the Azucar Restaurant as they have a coupon in the Entertainment book. We arrived on a Saturday night about 5:30, we found only two other gentlemen eating here. The restaurant was very dark inside, nothing like the picture on Trip Advisor. The ceiling was black with different paper and plastic... More

The food was very good. I ordered Lomo Saltado and Pollo a la Brasa, Anticuchos and Picarones. Everything was excellent. The prices were affordable. The owners Manuel and María were very friendly. We really enjoyed the time, and felt like being among home with friends. Next time we go to Edmonton, for sure we will come back to this restaurant.

Fantastic service and great food. We dropped in to celebrate our anniversary. Immediately we had a waiter (Adrian) getting us drinks and making recommendations. Both him and the waitress always made sure we were being looked after. We tried the beef heart appetizer and it was fabulous. Never had beef heart like this. Our main courses were also excellent. My... More

We had a coupon for buy one get one at the Azucar Picante. We went on a Saturday evening about 9 pm and found the place rather empty. We told them we had a coupon but they said they would not honour it even though they looked as if they shouldn't be turning business away. We decided to leave and... More

Been to Azucar a few times and it is one of my favorite mexican restaurants in the city. Being to mexico a handful of times i would say it is pretty authentic considering we're in Edmonton. Their tacos are authentic, with your choice of meat, cilantro and onions. The tacos also came with refried beans and tortilla chips and salsa.... More

The cuisine is very good and authentic. I had the bandeja paisa and my girlfriend had the chupe de mariscos. Only thing missing was the Colombian salsa for the bandeja paisa but it was still tasty and a very large meal. The chupe de camarones was outstanding though and I would highly recommend.
