A good location, good food and great atmosphere. One of the better-known Mexican restaurants in Tokyo. The restaurant also has a few musicians who play Spanish/English/Japanese songs. This seems to be especially popular with couples and birthday gatherings. The food is great with some original dishes.
The staff was efficient, but they could be friendlier.

The food and service is bad, super overpriced and disappointing. The guacamole looks like it was made the day before, the food overcooked and no real Mexican taste at all. Very expensive bad experience. The atmosphere is nice but for terrible food at that price, never go back.

Had the course menu. Really good food, although at times a little heavy on the flavour - could afford to be a bit more subtle/delicate. Missed the entertainment, unfortunately. But a great experience all in all!

The service is pretty bad, not rude but the hall staff don't really know what to do or to say, not helpful at all. Also the menu we had was so old we could barely read, also because of not much light. The place doesn't look bad actually , the main hall is actually pretty nice and there'e a mexican vibe (haven't seen the guitar guys tho) .
The food is not only not very good nor mexican, it's actually very bland. So disappointing. The bill was pretty high, doesn't match at all with the food and drinks we had. Not going back absolutely.

I had an amazing time here. Firstly, the place looks unbelievable, going down the stairs to get to the restaurant, tables and the walls. All together I felt I'm in Tijuana! Loved the atmosphere, staff were super friendly, food was great.
