Even though we are in Denmark it felt like we travelled to Mexico for one evening. They were very sweet and gave good advice on food and drink. Lovely flavors, very traditional and the city’s best mojito.

We chose this restaurant because we have two vegetarians in our group although there was only one dish it was pleasant enough. Maybe an alternative option would have been nice this was why I didn’t award 5 stars. The starters and puddings were delicious and...More

Dear Helena, We could have easily done another vegetarian dish and even more. You should have asked the waiters. We can do Chimichanga, Burrito, Quesadillas, Fajitas and Enchiladas as well. But anyways thanks for your visit and your business. Hope to see you back again.

Description
Winner of Tripadvisor's prestigious award, Certificate of Excellence, in 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017.! Upscale Mexican restaurant located in one of the best areas, close to Queens Palace. Announced as the best Mexican restaurant in Copenhagen by Borsen, one of the most well known newspapers in DK. High quality, nice atmosphere, professional and service minded staff have made El Viejo Mexico to one of the most famous Mexican restaurants in Copenhagen. We probably have the best selection of premium Tequilas in DK plus a nice selection of Mexican beer and wine from famous European and overseas houses. People love our Margaritas and Mojitos. Good recommendation for food will be menu 1.
