Typical authentic Mexican food joint in the centre of Madrid. Right near Mercado San Anton. A very big restaurant indeed. So we did not need to book. However it was midweek. The food is heavy on the stomach as food goes. So for lunch this...More

We went here looking for great, authentic Mexican food with an atmosphere, and that's exactly what we found. Quite a small Restuarants so gets very busy quickly! The mojitos and ceviche were amazing and they do great sharing platters. Definitely worth a visit!

One of the best Mexican restaurants in Madrid, together with CASCABEL in the Terrace of Corte Inglés Serrano. Natural ingredients coming from Mexico, excellent service of the waiters, and great atmosphere. Nice decoration with wrestling stuff and idols.

Great value Mexican food, with good service and tasty options. We went for the Taco mix, which is great for sharing at 9€ per person (for a couple). Looks small but could feed an army! For me La Panza is the best value Mexican in...More

Definitely recommended for an easy-going night out with friends in small groups, in a cheerful and lively atmosphere, tasting excellent mexican food (nachos con guacamole is a must) and drinking sangria and margaritas. Excellent!

Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where
many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where
the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and
people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture
of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses

La Panza es Primero is located on Calle Libertad in the heart of Madrid's emblematic barrio of Chueca. The restaurant, which opened in 2000, converted the old wine cellar at this location into an authentic Mexican canteen, decorated with typical objects from Mexican culture, such as a five metre virgin of Guadalupe and a free wrestling ring! At La Panza es Primero diners can enjoy Mexican food, full of the bold flavours, colours and aromas of Mexico combined with Spanish ingredients, creating a happy fusion. Diners will find friendly and personal service in this colourful and fun restaurant as well as authentic Mexican culture.
