We recently looked up the restaurant after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. We arrived quite late, about 9.30pm and most people were finishing up their meals, but they said that they would accommodate us. They talked us though the menu for the best vegetarian options and we had a delicious meal - we can recommend the vegi enchilada... More

This place fit the bill, and the bill was not outrageous, for Switzerland. We tried various local specialties and the picky adolescent was thrilled with... More

I wasn't going to eat mexican food in Switzerland, so I asked the waiter for his recommendation and there was a traditional sampler that was excellent, and it came in a half portion so I didn't waste a lot of food. Good food in a good place!!

We came a long way from Australia to Chur and it was much to my surprise when my wife picked out this restaurant. To all outward appearances it looks like your run of the mill Swiss restaurant. However... Much to my surprise they served me the best enchilada I've ever had with smoky beef and cheese and a great salad... More

If you look for local and/or Mexican food, this is the place. It offers outside seating with a view to the ancient Arcas village square. The service was efficient and friendly

This restaurant offers good local specialties at reasonable prices nicely located in the old part of the city. The Mexican dishes also looked very tasty. The service was very friendly.

Set in a charming village square, this gem offered a real taste of old school local Swiss food. Primarily marketed as a Mexican restaurant, which looked tasty, we choose to try a little local plate, which proved very satisfying. Friendly family run with strong spoken English and, would highly recommend
