Visited with some trepidation as we'd read that there had been a change of management here since our last visit two years ago. Great to see focus back on great food, good value and excellent service - not the 'taker it or leave it' we'd previously experienced.

we ate here on a Thursday evening, very busy, good standard Mexican dishes, pleasant service and very reasonable wine prices, Marques de Caceres Rioja only 14.95 euros a bottle.

5 star. Very Authentic food. Staff soooo friendly. Had a great evening here the food was very tasty and fresh. We had starters which we probably could have done without as the mains are good sized portions. Chilli and chimichanga all round. In the old town of Puerto Del Carmen. If your there and like Mexican don't hesitate.

As usual the beer was cold, the chilli was hot and the welcome as warm as ever. Thank you Daniella and team for the best Mexican food on the island.

First time here in 2015 and back again in 2016. Chimichangas are prefect and the home made chilli con carne had melt in the mouth beef. Do check the heat with a sample though as its the hottest item on the menu. Did I mention the cocktails? Kahlua Mudslide knocked me for six again, not sure what size measures they... More

Spent a week in Puerto del carmen and ate here twice. Both meals were very good. Not only do they do spicy food there are non spicy options. Well worth sister if you like Mexican food.

Might even say best meal. I had researched restaurants before our holiday as my boyfriend is a bit fussy. I read reviews and liked the sound of Emma's. On passing one morning we made a reservation for that night and we had the most enjoyable meal. Food was out of this world. Only gripe was that they couldn't make me... More
