I went to El Viejo Mexico with my wife and two teenage sons and we all loved it. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and helpful. It would be worth the 3 hour train journey from Aarhus to come back again.

The food is really tasty. We had Nachos and Fajitas, both abundant plates! I have to mention the great lime margaritas. Service also very good, they pay attention on whatever you need.

This is so far the best mexican I have found in Europe, however, it still does not compare to real mexican food (or even good texmex). Worth it if you truly need a mexican fix, however, be prepared to pay.

Visited for a dinner with my wife and two children of 10 and 12. Enjoyed a lot. All dishes had some chili but also a good hint of sugar, giving a nice balance to flavours. Staff was very friendly and service fluent. Worth a recommendation...More

The place was nearly full on a Tuesday - a good sign of good food. I was alone and was welcomed to a table, got a lovely drink and nice burrito. Staff was friendly and attentive.

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday. The food was fantastic. Our server Marta from Nicaragua was awesome as our Cuban bartender who made the best Mojito we ever tasted. The host put fireworks on her dessert which was cool. Everyone was really great!

Winner of Tripadvisor's prestigious award, Certificate of Excellence, in 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017.! Upscale Mexican restaurant located in one of the best areas, close to Queens Palace. Announced as the best Mexican restaurant in Copenhagen by Borsen, one of the most well known newspapers in DK. High quality, nice atmosphere, professional and service minded staff have made El Viejo Mexico to one of the most famous Mexican restaurants in Copenhagen. We probably have the best selection of premium Tequilas in DK plus a nice selection of Mexican beer and wine from famous European and overseas houses. People love our Margaritas and Mojitos. Good recommendation for food will be menu 1.
