You'll see the green and red colours of this restaurant from quite a distance - they'll remind you of the Mexican flag - which is fortunate, as the cuisine is definitely Mexican. They only have a few tables in this small restaurant, but it is very popular. They do open the first floor, but it does have diffenent opening hours. There are red beans, either boiled, mashed, or roasted in all of the dishes, which represent the heart of Mexican cuisine - fajitas, burritos, and enchiladas for example. Vegetarians need fear nothing - a wide range of dishes are meat free. The atmosphere is more comfortable than sophisticated.
We were a group of 12 on a Wednesday night. We found ourselves admonished TWICE by the owners wife. Perhaps we were talking a bit loudly, but we were out after 9 PM on a weekday, with only two other tables filled in the upstairs dining areas. We were by no means obnoxious or unruly. The owner's wife made us feel like we were 10 year's old! She went on to yell at us about only having 12 patrons versus the 15 we had made reservations for. I HAD told the waitress upon arrival that we would only be 13. In the end, one woman ended up having to leave before we ordered dinner, due to a sick child.
I believe your money and patronage is MUCH better spent at another restaurant in Basel. Try Tappaderas!!
To reach this excellent restaurant, keep an eye on the left side of the road as you walk up Avenida
Los Chorros de Milla. The establishment is located within an extensive property surrounded by a huge wall. Missing it ...
