We were staying nearby and decided on here for our first evening meal. It was very busy. Drinks were served quickly. I chose the chilli from the menu and it was lovely. We didn't have too long to wait for the food to be served....More

We ordered fajitas. No taste of anything. Bland and not what we expected. Could count the bits of chicken which were cut so small they were almost non existent.

All perfectly acceptable but nothing out of the ordinary. Good value yet predictable menu. Seems popular with the younger generation. Found food slightly on the heavy side. Like an upscale *Mac* but with a Mexican twist. Nice decor.

Last night we were here with the kids who loved the colourfull deco of the place. Kids loved the fajitas and I liked the spicy chicken. Service was good and friendly. Not a place for a romantic dinner though.

We visited Haarlem and went to Popo. Good atmosphere, friendly staff, good selection of food. But: the restroom is downstairs, without elevator and just a small stairs. Music a little too loud.. and the flavour of my selection was not special as I expected. Anyway.....More
