Overall I was a little disappointed with the food in Mi Sombrero. The ribs for starter were very tender but too rare for my liking. The meat on the inside of the ribs was very pink which immedietly put me off. I had the beef enchilada as my main. The beef in this was absolutely spectacular, clearly the quality of... More

Ate here with my better half. We shared a potato skins starter. Two dips made this very tasty. For mains we had chicken fajitas and beef burritos. Both were presented beautifully and tasted great. We were both too stuffed to attempt desserts! Wait times were fine too although it wasn't very busy. It was busier than surrounding restaurants though. I... More

Kids keen to have Mexican. Both had ribs. Very generous helpings. Waitress very friendly. Kids enjoyed ribs and lamb very good. Enchiladas very disappointing to the point of being inedible. Would not recommend.

Well we had a lovely evening here, good food, served at a nice pace. Everyone else in the restaurant out front seemed to be having a nice night too so not sure about the negative comments I've read.

After searching for an hour for somewhere to get lunch (as there's so many places to eat in Albufeira) me and my boyfriend grew tired and just decided to sit at this reastaurant. I'm so glad we did! We were quickly served drinks by a very friendly server, the food we ordered arrived in a decent amount of time and... More

Having told a frequent visitor that we wanted to try a nice Mexican they recommended Mi Sombrero. What a muppet! And what a muppet I was too listen to him. We were seated quiet quickly and promptly provided with drinks, but then things went south. We both ordered cold starters that wouldn't require and cooking time and yet we waited... More

Great Mexican food, lovely staff. June 2014 I was there for the 1st time with my parents. We sat outside. Today we came back with my Boyfriend and had a table inside. Again so lovely staff and food.
