Went for first time last week to celebrate my birthday with family and friends. Good central location with lively atmosphere and good authentic food. Very busy (Friday) as there was live real Mexican Mariachi band playing for 2 hours from 22.00.

This place has an amazing steak fajitas! The service is phenomenal! And the chips and queso are out of this world delicious. Highly recommended and fare prices.

I've been lucky enough to try authentic Mexican food , this is not it. If any of my many Mexican friends tried the burrito I had at this restaurant they would be outraged. First I wasn't able to find it my in my plate,everything was covered with God-knows-what white sauce, finally I found a tiny little wrap with "something" inside... More

Continuing myself and the wifes theme of eating on a budget headed for El mexicano this evening. Took some finding as its out the way of the main drag, but eventually found it with some help from the locals. Restaurant was pretty empty when we arrived but filled up as the evening progressed with half a dozen families. The waitress... More

Definitely the best Mexican we've found yet in the Marbella area. Large selection of authentic home-made Mexican salsas that they bring out on request, and even Chimay habanero sauces (bottled) imported from Mexico, also available for sale, which we've not found anywhere else. The total bill for a hungry couple was less than €35 for everything incl. drinks (margaritas, beers... More

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and we went to check it out. I'm not eating Mexican food very often but I must say that the food was incredibly tasty and the prices are very reasonable. A bit out of the tourist area but well worth a visit!

We were craving Mexican food, and there aren't many options in Marbella. Since this place had the highest reviews, we decided to go here. It's a nice walk from old town and put us in a part of Marbella we didn't know existed. Full of locals and many other bars/restaurants around. The meal itself was good. Nothing amazing, but if...

This is a fun little place with some great silly hats. However, food is off the mark. It's very bland, and normal Mexican flavours of coriander, chilli, lime are all lacking. Chilli on nachos was tasteless. Rice was also very bland and not spicey. We had a platter to share, which was ok but basically just BBQ. We wanted some... More
