    Highly recommended. Food is so delicious. Staff are super friendly and speak perfect English which is kind of uncommon in many restaurants in Barcelona. Small place, please consider reservation.

    Tacos are the best in BCN! Better than Tex-Mex...top place around out of about 30 we have tried! Bistec con queso, campechano tacos, cochinita pibil, al pastor, wash down with horchata or Michelada

    I never liked Tacos or Nachos. After Tlaxcal I love them. Great place and environment. Good location in the heart of Born.

    One of the best Mexican restaurants in the city. The cochinita pibil's tacos are a must. Nice enchilada and refreshing micheladas also. Happy end w/ the tasty pastel de Elote. Booking is a good idea.

    The Mexican in Barcelona! You cant go wrong with any of their menu items. Great lunch menu deal but also normal prices not to steep. Enjoy!

    2nd visit was better than the first. Veg dishes can be made vegan w/out cheese/cream. Alambres tacos were very tasty. I ordered some frijoles on the side. Nice service. GREAT Michelada

    The margaritas (and desserts) are to die for. Tlaxcal is known for its tacos. Quite a few vegetarian options on the menu, but only one for tacos (alambres), no vegan options. Also: way too much cheese

    Really delicious Mexican food. Tried tacos with pollo and flan for dessert. They also have nice options for 'menu del día', however, only from Monday to Friday.

    I highly recommend 'tacos de lengua': yes, 'lengua' means tongue, but it doesn't look disgusting, on the contrary. At the begining I had issues, but it's extremely savory. BTW, they have café de olla.

    Great place, I have actually been to Mexico recently and this place rly feels very authentic. Few items (especially the Aguachile) can be too spicy for someone, so be careful what u want ;)

    Loved the nachos, ceviche was ok, tacos are very different in a good way than the ones in the Mexican restaurant we regularly visit in İstanbul.

    In my humble opinion, since I am not mexican nor ever have been in Mexico, but from what I have tried, I dare to say this is the best Mexican Rest. in BCN right now.

    Good Mexican food. It's more Tex-Mex than Mexican. Really good for the price and the attention of the waitresses is really good.
