I wasn't expecting American-style Mexican food, and therefore I wasn't disappointed when that wasn't exactly what I got. However what they do serve is good for what it is -- Mexican-*inspired* food. I had what was something like a carne asada. The meat was cooked and seasoned nicely and the portion size was decent. It staved off the Mexican food... More

Just off the bus square (which is next to the train station) this was a good find. I guess we were just looking for a rest from red meat and we enjoyed a vegetarian and chicken mexican meal. Glasses of wine available as are glasses of great Finish beer

The food was extremely good. I took vegetable and goat cheese fajitas and my date had chimichurri chicken. Both dishes were tasty and the portions were just the right size. We had churros sociales for dessert to share. The plate was huge (it would have been big enough for 4 people) and the price was only 10 e. The cocktail... More

This place is a short walk from the main train station. Can be crowded and cozy. It has a Latin American theme. Most dishes come from some place in central or south America; nothing too sophisticated. Keeping it simple, I had a queso a la Parrilla (grilled haloumi - very small portion) entrecote steak (asado ranchero) and a sorbet. The... More

We came quite early on Tuesday evening, 5 pm., and had even reserved a table. It was not perhaps in vain, because more and more people kept coming as we had our meal. We ordered fat first some minidillas (greenshell mussels, salmon ceviche, tiger prawns, chicken) and liked them very much. As a main course we had grilled swordfish and... More

Had a great meal at the cozy Maya Bar & Grill in the beginnings of December. Tried several of their smaller dishes; this is a nice way to sample lots of tastes without getting too full (or the check getting too big). Flavors were absolutely spot on: from the ceviche and fish tacos to perfectly grilled chicken tacos, superb smoked... More

We looked for a place to have casual dinner and this turned out to be a great choice. We went for the starters as we heard they would be good. We ordered 3-4 starters each which turned out to be a good choice . There were all good but our favorites were haloumi, squid, chicken, avocado. As a couple ,... More

Lovely food and cocktails. Not Mexican like I'm use to in England but very tasty. Decent sized portions. We had nachos then the share fajita food for 2. Both very tasty.
