So after a lot of swiss food we wanted to have spicy food. That's how we end up going El Azteca and it was so satisfying. The place serves almost authentic Mexican food in a very unlikely place. There was live Mexican music (I am not sure whether it was Mexican honestly) but it was quite pleasing. We order topped... More

we had dinner on a rainy night in mid September, and the restaurant was warm an inviting. We had been there the year before and the food was every bit as good. My wife had a vegetarian meal--a huge salad and pronounced it one of the freshest she had ever had. I had beef enchiladas which we very good, and... More

Food was really delicous, service a little slow but friendly. We thought it was a little overpriced.

As a Mexican I know about Mexican food is not the best but it will be the most Mexican you can find in Europe. It took me back home.

We had visited this place for dinner after seeing the reviews on tripadvisor. We happened to tell this to the person who attended to us. Man, you should have seen his reaction. He took pride in this and it seems that this rating has gone in his head. Stiff upper lip as you call. Anyways we ordered for food thinking... More

We dined here as a family one August weeknight. All of us have a deep love for Mexican cuisine, and have had it all over the world, Mexico included. I think El Azteca ranks poorly even by European standards. The staples - chips, tortillas, and salsas - have a stale, industrial taste. The salsa roja was little more than a... More

Having lived in Texas for 7 years, I had doubts before I even visited the restaurant. We gave it a try and the enchiladas, while small, were delicious. The chicken fajitas were very bland and did not come with cheese, sour cream, or avocado. I would go again for the chicken enchiladas.

Having a Mexican family, I was a little unsure at first about a place like this in Switzerland. But when I met the owner and he told me his history of coming from Mexico City to Interlaken, I felt very comfortable. His food and staff are friendly and provide a great meal. My girlfriend had a strawberry margarita that is... More
