The food was so good and they give options, which all of them are good and well-prepared. They don´t allow children but there is a special are for the children to be there watching TV, sitting on couches or playing around with the supervision of someone from the hotel. The service was too slow, there was a moment when all... More

We went to El Mexicano as part of an all inclusive package at Las Brisas. First off, service is outstanding. We were very pleased with all three courses - including the table side preparation of salsa made to your liking. We are not "expert" Mexican food connoisseurs so the various dishes were "authentic" enough for us. They certainly were tasty... More

My wife and I shared 2 delicious dishes- fish tacos and a large burrito-style dish with 4 different fish selection. Both portions were large enough to share. The restaurant is well appointed with nice art and pleasant muted lighting. Service was very good. Dinner, wine and tip for the two of us was about $30.00 USD.

This place is rated 3 diamonds. So staff is a little bit rude. Food is good and prices are pretty fair, however the taste can improve and should since they sell them self as a Mexican restaurant, so food must taste authentic. Remember to dress formal, since sandals, shorts and denim is no allowed. They facilitate formal trousers at the... More

We have gone there eight consecutive years and each year, we are presented with outstanding cuisine and treated like a King and Queen!! They used to have a dish with butterflied chicken breast covered with coconut mango salsa, (which we can sometimes get them to make special for us) that is FANTASTIC. Not bragging but one year our bill for... More

I have only been here twice and both times have been in November. Our first visit was delightful with a wonderful selection for starters, a lovely salad, and perfectly prepared seafood for our main course. This last time, sadly, it was not very good. The starters were very average, and my shrimp was something I could have prepared at home.... More
