Its a relatively small cosy establishment with a lively atmosphere and friendly staff. The tacos were good alongside the condiments - portion was just right for us but might be small for bigger eaters. It can get quite packed but people seem to come and go pretty rapidly so we had no problem getting a table on a Saturday night.

I have visited as couple of times while in Zurich on business. The atmosphere is lively and quite loud from table conversations of people having a good time. The guacamole dip is fantastic. I recommend the dip, a couple of tacos and a margarita or two. Both times I visited the place was full; last time I had to sit... More

Great atmosphere and good location. Nice Margaritas. The tacos meat tacos were ok. The vegi tacos were not good at all - basically filled with heated frozen vegetables. Menu is very limited.

The tacos here are great. They have a selection of different kinds. The tacos are small but you get some sauces to add. It is pricey, a plate with 6 tacos costs you 36. If you don't mind the price you will be happy.

Tacos flavoring is really excellent. They also have Mexican beers. I'm no Mexican but I've been to Mexico a few times. I was there with Mexican friends and they agree: excellent tacos. Service was a little bit slow.

Had walked past this place a few times & it always seems busy, so decided to give it a go! The food was hot, tasty and authentic. We loved the guacamole, quesadilla and their 'Mexican burger'. Great chocolate cake! Our server was sincerely nice, even though we spoke mostly English. Affordable dinner overall! Outside seating available as well. Will definitely... More

I hate the typical titles like " best XXX in Zürich" but at least I can said that the tacos taste similar than in Mexico, and I love it. Guacamole it is also nice and I love the non-flavor-added-nachos, something difficult to find in Europe. The atmosphere is nice, noisy and the staff friendly. Cons: I found the michelada so... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this little restaurant! The food was very authentic and fresh! Portions are a bit small based on US portions but you aren't starving when you leave. The owner was very helpful to explain the menu in English. The only down side is there are no sides offered like refried/black beans..chips, salsa & guacamole are delicious... More

It is hard to find good Mexican food in Switzerland but this place nails it. They have a large selection of tacos and they are great. They come with different sauces to add on. The downside is that It costs you 12 CHF for 2 tacos. I guess that is just the price to pay for decent food in Zurich.
