I visited The Mexican Kitchen a few times for lunch. They have lots of healthy options and everything is made fresh. The vegan dishes were so tasty and the kitchen serves a free bowl of nachos with your cocktail if bought during their Happy Hour.

Nothing special here. Well actually there is. Epic sunsets.

We had the margarita jug and nachos special. The cocktail needed an American style sweet and sour mix. The nachos were terrible.

The empanadas were ok. The other dish (can’t remember what it was called) was quite nice.

It’s just an average cantina relying upon the sunset views to drive business.

We had a nice night. The service was good. $7 Coronas? Surely thou jest...

I have eaten here 3 times. Nice ambiance, staff and lokation. Besides the meateaters, they also have a very good selection for vegetarians and vegans.
I have had the vegitariaarinn Tlayuda, which was sooo good and 5 out of 5 stars, same with the mexican style corn cob. Mmmm....
The chocolate cashnew cake, is pretty good to, and gets 4 out of 5 stars.
The cheese quesedilla, was very plain and boring, 2 out of 5 stars.
Note that this is mexican food adapted to european palets and is not the least bit spicy/hot. However that doesnt mean there is no flavour. The tlayudas, are soooo flavourful!
3 different spicy sauces are available on the table.

The service was great (there was a bugle with the first order of drinks and the waiter apologised throughout the evening!), the food was incredible and the sunset remarkable.
