The Mexican restaurant Popocatepetl at the "passage" in The Hague is named after a Mexican volcano. The interior is completely in-style, including very nice wall decorations that, in combination with the high ceiling and the old Renaissance Revival architecture, give a great atmosphere. There is a large choice of dishes, also available from three menus varying from €22.50 to €29.50.... More

Popo, as it's called by most local people, is a chain of Mexican restaurant in Holland. They serve authentic popular Mexican dishes but not the real deal Mexican. I was there with my family in May. Everyone chose to order one of the different 3 course menu's. I had the empandas for appetizer. It was okay. Being from the Caribbean... More

This restaurant is well spotted, the courses are good and not too expensive, however the service was a bit long and not very good.

Visited, without reservation, on a friday evening and had to wait 30 mins for a table to be vacated. Bar available so not too onerous. The food was very good but portions, of some meals, really too big. The ribs were enough for 2+ so may be best to skip the starter unless rather hungry. Service very good and staff... More

We loved the patio and pretty good Mexican food in Europe. Our server was great and was helpful with my gluten free needs. Much of the menu can be made gluten free

We were looking for a restaurant to have dinner in Den Haag and we encountered this one in the entrance of the famous "Passage". Nice location, cosy atmosphere, nachos were tasty, chicken wings delicious, fajitas not bad, sangria fantastic. Good service...

great food, great atmosphere. The waiters are really friendly. I liked the margarita which was peach flavor, i just wish there were more flavor choices. Also i didnt really like how it came in a jug, the table got quite messy. But overall we really enjoyed our dinner!

We were served fajitas in extra fast time and they were excellent! The presentation, taste and quantity were all good and the price was acceptable. The only reason for only scoring four out of five is that both of us became very thirsty in the night, suggesting too much salt in the food. Overall, a good experience though and we... More

This quite nice looking Mexican restaurant, with a bunch of people inside certainly seems to be a good place! But, the prices are too high! The food is far from the proper Mexican one, and the quacamole is too salty. It's not even a proper quaca. I'm disappointed. Honestly.

Thank Sylwia P
