Went for a dinner, so we found this restaurant in Eden square. Food was excellent. He had Mexican cloth so we put some for a couple of pictures. Service was great and the manager was very helpful in the selection of food. Drinks were not so tasty, so the manager offered to change them for us. I would go again... More

I ate here this year for the first time, we dont normally have Mexican food in Cyprus. Me and my partner shared at a meal which was more than enough for us both. Our friends had a meal each, at about 16 Euro which I thought was on the pricy side for Protaras. What we had we enjoyed

Great location in Protaras. The outside seating area was lovely. The food was very very tasty and the prices were great for the quality of food. Me and my partner had Chimichanga and it was fantastic. Really nice touch at the end when you can have a photo dressed as Mexicans. A great night.

Had the set menu, had a job to eat it. Food is plentiful. For 13 Euro we had nachos to start, two enchiladas for main and apple pie and ice cream for dessert. Great night.

Great ambiance, very nice food. It's realy hard to choose from the card, everything sounds lovely. The staff can recommend dishes. Chimichanga was delicious (asked without Jalepeno) As a dessert they have Mexican fried ice cream in a tortilla wrap. Wow, you have never tasted something like that!

Not very well noticed from the main strip, we saw a sign for El Chico. We love Mexican so gave it a try. The food was absolutely lovely and it was actually quite nice to be away from the noise and bustle of the main strip. Make sure you try the nachos!! The waiting staff were excellent and it was...
