Loved the atmosphere and the interior. Service was always ok, but the food was really good and with huge portions.

My friends took me to Mexican restaurant EL Popo. It was nice designed place, service was ok, food was very mediocre, the soup was so salty that my friend had to return it. The duck was overdone and not so good. Someone would expect sizzle freshness with some aromatic spices with lots of veggies and souses. Unfortunately it wasn't the... More

Why? The service was aggressive but kind. Every few minutes "would you like have another glass or a bottle?" The food was horrible. The fish soup was not what we expected. The Margaritas where probably virgin and the worst I ever had. Guacamole was close to OK. Whatever we ordered the test was neutral. No taste otherwise. The music was... More

I was here with work and I was pretty impressed after having some really poor Mexican food at other places around the country. The guacamole was made at the table, the margaritas were great and all of our main meals were outstanding.

Not what I'd call good Mexican food...and yes, the music is a tad loud. Had a chill con carne and it was very poor...the starters were greasy and not the best. Wouldn't recommend

I totally respect your point of view but I simply cannot agree. We have Mexican Chef Angel who knows very well how to prepare original and tasty Mexican dishes. Most probably you were here during the weekend so Mariachis were playing and yes, it could have been loud like during real Mexican fiesta. Maybe consider visiting us one more time,... More

Had a great dinner with friends; very decent Mexian food, guacemola made on the spot and nice atmosphere with live (of course Mexican) musicians

Very friendly place with yummy Mexican food and very good selection of Margaritas and Tequilas :) The place was full when we visited, and service was very prompt. It was a Thursday afternoon and there was live music on. Our drink of choice for the night was a pumpkin and cinnamon margarita which was surprisingly delicious. Will be coming back!

I've been coming here ever since I came to Poland over 20 yrs ago. They recently underwent a cosmetic refresher exeecise and I'm happy to report that all the great parts of this iconic restaurant have been kept but in a new fresher appearance. The 'behind the bar' area has been reduced, giving a much more generous floor area for... More
