Very nice selection of Mexican Food, also not pricey at all. Don't leave ernestos without tasting the Calameres Fritos (Calamari with Garlic Sauce). The Garlic sauce is one of a kind!

Great atmosphere, take some time to look at all those details in the decor, lots of colours and objects, uplifting music, phenomenal place. You order lots of different dishes and then share them with each other. Food is not very hot, which is to be expected in a small European town, but is of good quality. Some surprising choices on...

What a great place for a no fuss supper, beer and catch up during Oktoberfest. Highly recommended by business travelling partner during her many trips away from home to Sittard. Well done, quirky concept but it really works and did not get chance to sample the many tequila on offer. Next time!

We celebrate a birthday here and the organizer asked for a special vegan menu. This was no problem and we had a delicious Vegan dinner for an affordable price.. The atmosphere was excellent and the owner join us even at the table. A birthday dinner to remember!!

Lots of fun, live band, friendly staff, good food. This restaurant is a sleeper. Good food, top notch tequila, live bands and I met some of the nicest people in this bar/restaurant. I will visit Ernesto's whenever I am in town.

I was sent out to Sittard on business and stumbled upon Ernesto's while looking for a place to eat dinner. The staff is incredibly friendly and attentive. Food is really good and the tequila selection is better than I have seen in some places in the States. Live entertainment on some nights was a really good time. If you are... More

Though I quite liked their additions to the coffees, I was less of a fan of the wrap which was meaty with lots of raisins in their burrito making it very sweet rather then savoury. They make up for it a bit with their cozy atmosphere and lovely colourful interior.

It's a very little restaurant on the market place of Sittard. There are not many tables there and outside a few. The foreign food is good but not excellent I would say. The taste is good.

The food here is great, atmosphere is awesome, just do not expect real mexican or tex-mex style food. Us per usual with most European food its not hot flavored but it is still very good food.
