We often visit this restaurant with the family for dinner during the week. We never had anything to complain and love their food. It is always really good and fresh. The only thing is you usually have to make a reservation upfront. Even during the week they are so full all the time, to get a table without a reservation... More

Always like to visit El-Mosquito. All the food is delicious. In the evenings, sometimes the music is turned up a bit too loud. Also possible to sit outside in warmer months (no real view - but the place is near the beautiful old-town of Bremgarten).

Near-perfect location, a few short steps from the enchanting old town. Solid selection of traditional Mexican fare, well cooked and in decent portion sizes. Not cheap, but not exorbitant either. Limited parking available right in front of the front door. The service was polite and prompt with a touch of good humour. Oh, and the menus as apps on a... More

I love this restaurant. It is always busy and worth booking in advance or expect to be waiting for a table or the food for around 30 min. But for me it's never a problem. You have a drink and a good chat and then have a delicious meal. Their food, especially the ribs are just devine. Definitely recommend this... More

The food is great, cocktails are nice, staff is friendly. I've been very satisfied with my visit. Only BIG downside: there is no proper air ventilation. ALL my clothes were smelling like food for 2 days after my visit.

Friday late afternoon/early evening at 6:30pm. The restaurant was pretty empty but despite we only wanted to come for a quick dinner we got refused. No attempt to give us a table. Very unsatisfying - we will not try it again.

Yesterday we decided to eat some Mexican food and therefore went to ElMosquito (not the first time). Firstly they brought the wrong beverage (no matter...happens sometimes). The waiter changed the drink instantly. However... it took more than 45 minutes to serve our dish?! We were quite hungry and subsequently very disappointed about the portion size. We noted that the same... More

The restaurant has the typical Mexican style, and the atmosphere follows the name and the style. The menu has a wide choice from mexican food, but you shouldn't go here if you're no fan of hot food. As we were here we had to wait quite long for the meals and our drinks, and we had to wait long to... More

What a beautiful restaurant! A small museum. The attention to detail is incredible. Being a Mexican food lover, I have to admit that the food is average. If you have never tested true Mexican food or if you have been spending extensive time in Europe and are craving it, ElMosquito is the place to go! The guacamole needs more avocado,... More
