I went with my girlfriend. Food was good, we ordered meat tacos and quesadillas + a dip of guacamole. To drink a bottle of beer. We could not finish the dishes because it was too much food. Price was Ok, 650 pesos (about 40us). The attention and the place are very good

Firstly I found the prices to be higher than what is in order for a place in this spectrum but very quickly I looked past that and enjoyed the decor, efficient service, complimentary drink and well prepared starters and main course. It's quite authentic as far as the cuisine goes, has place for large groups but is more suited to... More

I cannot recommend the place. Food has no flavor and taste like it has been done hours ago and is only warmed up. There are definitaly better Mexican restaurants in Palermo around the corner.

The website and the sign at the entrance indicates that the restaurant opens at 7:00pm but opting for an early dinner we were told that the kitchen opens at 8pm. While Tijuana claims authentic Mexican dishes, we found our entrees to be bland and overpriced. When we requested spicy salsa we were given the American Tabasco brand pepper sauce "McIlhenny"...

The place is really nice, they did a nice job with the deco and the staff was very helpful. But when it comes to the food... It was kind of tasteless and the meat was dry.

Just spent USD 40 on two beers, some nachos and a "quesadilla." The beer was Belgian, as no Mexican beer was on offer The "quesadillas" were in fact just tacos: not grilled, just folded Only redeeming feature was the service: staff friendly and helpful

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
