Enjoyed the hospitality and good cousin. Delicious fajitas and Chili con Carne, classical one, with shredded beef, spicy. We tried the house special as dessert. Deep fried banana, with fresh fruits and vanilla ice cream. Yummy:) Not to forget the fantastic Mojito. Our best recommendations.

Winner of Tripadvisor's prestigious award, Certificate of Excellence, in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018. 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.
