Description: From the moment you walk in you are drawn to the strange layout of the place. Really cool paintings and random stuff all around. Great value for money. The mixed platter for 2 is 90 BS. For a mix of everything thats great on the menu. They do take-aways and deliverys and for the likes of me even wrap up what I couldn't finish! The staff is really nice.

My son wanted to go here. I am not a huge fan of Mexican food and it seemed a shame to ea Mexican in Bolivia.
As soon as I saw the place my attitude changed. Its not actually a cave, just a warm and cozy spot at street level. We were lucky to get the last available table. Its decorated with a party theme, lots of nick-nacks and fancy lights. Everyone seemed to be in a good mood and having fun, there was quite the party atmosphere. Service was friendly and quite fast given that they were full. There was quite an extensive menu of standard Mexican items which were well made. Corona beer and Margaritas helped wash things down. A little disconcerting to find a corner of Mexico in La Paz, but it was a very enjoyable evening.

This place was recommended as being amazing mexican food and it certainly was! Its a small cosy little restaurant with a cool mexican interior design theme. We got the sharing board and it was more than enough for two hungry people with huge appetites. They have a good selection of beer and tequila obviously. Its popular with tourists as it was full of them. Def go for some good food after a days hiking or climbing round La Paz

Easy going, relaxed place. Food is delicious. We had the 'Tabla Mexicana' and it was perfect. A taste from all parts of the menu.

Pretty average. Had chicken tacos and burritos, exact same except for the rice and the price. Most of the plate is filled with dorito chips, the actual filling is bland and had pineapple in them... very strange,no salt, no spice, no lime, no coriander .. Waitress had a bad attitude. The other mexican is good. Don't bother going here.
