Booked a table for 7.30 on 3/12/16 as we have been several times before in a group. Our starter was fine but we waited nearly an hour for our main course. The waitress notices us sitting and within 2 mins our mains arrived-lukewarm. It seemed like they had forgotten about our food and was reheated? The waitress apologised but no... More

10 of us had dinner here and it was a bit of a mixed bag. Service on the evening was extremely slow & the starters were cold. Perhaps they were shirt staffed! Main courses were either just okay or not too good & service again took what seemed a decade! Hygiene wise 5 out of 10. All in all we... More

Staying in Glasgow for the evening to see a gig. We love eating and cooking Mexican food. The chef needs a lesson on fajitas. Surely a packet mix. Enough to put anybody of Mexican food.

We have been going to this restaurant for years now and I would say it is one of our favourite places to eat in Glasgow . We love the vibrant and colourful feel of the restaurant interior and the wooden " cantina " type tables and chairs set it off nicely . The staff are always extremely friendly , helpful... More

A good lively venue, with helpful staff and a varied menu. Location in the Merchant City is well placed for after meal entertainment.

Nice atmosphere and friendly, efficient staff. Food was served super quick which was great as we didn't have much time but I mean really quick! All in, a good atmosphere and lovely restaurant.

Returning to the uk after a year of living in Mexico City, I despaired of tasting a decent taco again. I tried Wahaca in London and the usual range of crappy tex-mexes - all very disappointing and not even close to real Mexican flavours. And then tonight I went to this absolute jewel in Merchant City, Glasgow. Ideally I'd have... More

We went here for a meal on Sunday and it was very pleasant and reasonably priced. The food is not fancy so if that's what you are after go elsewhere. The food here is good portions full of flavour and enjoyable. Would come back

First time eating at Pancho Villa's, would go again. We ordered one starter between 3 which was the veg platter, it was nice to have a mix of starters however food was quite oily which was the only downfall. The mains were meat and veg fajitas and a vegetarian enchilada. No complaints about the mains whatsoever. Highlight of the day... More
