Normally I'm not that picky, but unfortunately the quesedillas had a really unpleasant taste. Would not recommend eating here.

The place was crowded. We ordered burritos, quesadillas and tacos al pastor. The service was awful. We had to wait more than 40'. They gave us the wrong order and the cook got really mad as we did not remember exactly if we ordered 2 or 3 burritos and he went bananas. The food was really bad, not Mexican at... More

Mexican Fast food. Food is nothing to special. Workers are not really professional. There is several different restaurants better than this one. Not expensive

We only stopped in for a drink. The place is very small but the selection of drinks is exceptional. While not overly-friendly, the bartender was quite willing to socialize. The saddest part of this visit was we didn't have time to sample the food...my mouth watered every time we wandered by. Another time, my savory-smelling friend!

The bar offers freshly made mexican food and works as a bar too. The decoration is breathtaking, a whole wall is a unique painting downstairs. The downstairs part has a special ruin pub decoration while upstairs its fully mexican feeling. I love both the special drinks they have and the chance to eat freshly baked food while drinking with friends

So for some reason I went back. My burrito was just as bad and this time, as mentioned by an earlier reviewer, it gave me a bad case of acute diarrhoea. Why is this kitchen still open. Why.

This is slander. I've never had anyone diarrhea for over 7 years. We sell fresh food. Maybe one Turkish restaurant he ate before him, to hear about a lot of these have problems. Suspicious that once did not like the food, then why come back and write a slanderous report. More

Price quality was good. But not really special. I ordered Fajitas or something like that, it was a lot, cause there was also rice in there, but not many different flavours. And the service was not really fast, so if you are in a rush you should go somewhere else.

We walked past this place on our way to another bar. We were drawn in by the sound of live music playing. The basement bar was elclectic and lively, and the band were so talented. A night of 50's styling and rock music combined with countless tequilas and quesedillas. We only went in to see what the all the commotion... More

District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
