Très bon, très bien fait. Portions sont petites. Margaritas sont superbes. Service moyen, discret. Rapport qualité/prix n'est pas bon. Trop cher pour ce que c'est.

Une demie tasse de guacamole et 12 chips 10$ / 2 petits tacos au porc, sans accompagnement 16,50$

Pas d'ambiance.

On y retourne? Non

Very pricey for very average food. We were charged $2.50 for a tablespoon of sour cream . We will not return. Montreal has great restaurants and this is not one of them.

Depuis que nous sommes arrivés le personnel nous surveillait. Le service était lent, la serveuse était désagréable. Nous sommes mexicains et je peux vous dire qu'un taco al pastor ça n'est pas servi avec une sauce tomate comme si c'était une enjitomatada (tortillas mijotées dans du jus de tomate), ça goûtait la pizza. Sans parler des enchiladas, ou de la misérable portion de poitrine de poulet servie dans un mole de confection douteuse, ou le choriqueso qui était servi dans un bain de sauce tomate et de sauce verte. L'ambiance était nulle. C'est trop cher pour ce qu'on nous sert.

De l’extérieur le restaurant a une belle présentation cependant de qu’on y rentre on se rendre compte que la place est très petite. Si vous avez des problèmes de claustrophobie, va mieux abstenir.
Le service n’est pas au point et il n’y a pas d’atmosphère.
Au niveau de la nourriture nous avons gouté le « Choriqueso » (fromage avec saucisse mexicaine accompagné des tortillas). Ils nous l’on présenté dans un assiette avec chorizo accompagné de fromage comme si étaient des Nachos. Ho ! déception. Nous avons demandé aussi une poitrine de poulet accompagné d’une sauce de « Mole verde » que, malheureusement, à mon point veux a été ratée.
Lorsque vous avez un doute quant à la préparation d’une assiette soyez avisé que la serveuse vous répondra d’une façon laconique.
Si vous voulez un dessert la sélection est maigre et pas typiquement mexicaine et pour le café, laissez faire, n’ont aucun talent.
Bref : un restaurant que de départ nous avez charmé mais que rapidement s’a transformé en déception.

Excellent repas. Service très chaleureux et personnel souriant. Le temps menaçant ne permettait pas de s installer à la terrasse, malheureusement..
On y est retourné avec encore plus de plaisir pour manger dehors: la terrasse est fort agreable!

We were hunting for a Mexican place to eat and after some research, we settled on this spot. We were not disappointed!
The food was really good and the margarita's were super. Although the total cost of our bill was maybe more than we were expecting, the excellent food will bring us back to this place. I think our total bill for 2 people with 2 margarita's was $125 (including tax and tip). Just a note, this is a quaintly small spot, so I would recommend making reservations. We sat in the window and enjoyed people watching.

Je recommande chaudement ce restaurant à l'ambiance familiale. La nourriture est toujours très bonne, le service sympatique et les margueritas excellents!!!

A essayer: la terrasse un beau vendredi soir d'été à compter de 17hres! mais revenez un froid soir de janvier ou février afin de goûter un peu de soleil du Mexique.

I had a wonderful evening with my husband at this cozy restaurant. If you're looking for a romantic restaurant that is not noisy this is the place. I think they can sit around 20 people in this tiny restaurant.

For starters we had the the guacamole that had a nice zing to it.

My husband had the the enchiladas de pollo (chicken) with the mole sauce which is a spicy chocolate sauce. He literally fell in love with the sauce.

I had the chilaquiles chorizo which is sliced spicy sausages with the roja sauce (tomatoes sauce). We enjoyed our meal although I must admit that my husband complained that there was not alot of food in his plate for the price. I was satisfied with my meal. For desert we shared a coconut flanc.

I will go back for the nice and quiet intimacy that a small place brings you compared to jam packed places where you can't hear yourself talk.

I wanted to like La Hacienda - all the rave reviews that the food was so wonderful, but honestly, it was sub par. I have tasted better Mexican other places in the city.

My husband and I started with the Natchos (which were bland, but okay) and then went on to the enchiladas. All white meat, mind you, but there was something lacking. Spices perhaps (even though my husband tried with the "spicy sauce". And the side orders were a disaster. $2 for rice (that reminded me of Rice-A-Roni - sticky and bland, with some mixed vegetables thrown in for color?) but the re-fried beans (4.50$ and scary) - pasty pale rust colored, and covered in a layer of oil. Unappetizing and without flavor. Basically re-fried paste.

The flan au noix du coco desert also lacked punch. And for 90$ for two people with 1 beer each, it was a little steep for what we ate.

I really wanted to like this place - the owners are so friendly, and the service is excellent, but I can only give this two stars for food as it really fell short of my expectations...

Acceuil très froid, service très très lent, serveuse très très très inexpérimenté. Menu non varié et sans originalité. RAYÉ DÉFINITIVEMENT DE NOTRE LISTE.

Endroit à connaitre pour se remémorer le Mexique ! Plats et sauces entièrement fait maison. À l'exception des Nachos.....dommage. Resto très intime. Vous devez obligatoirement gouter aux différentes bouteilles de Téquila, mmm, mais prenez garde aux prix s'y rattachants. Portions raisonnables.
Bravo à la cuisine et au service !
À bientot!

Un véritable restaurant de cuisine mexicaine à découvrir. Petit, intime, presque comme chez soi. Nous avons passé une soirée inoubliable à un prix vraiment accessible à tous. Une cuisine au goût exquis, un personnel accueillant et une ambiance conviviale. Pour trois personnes, nous avons consommé 4 margaritas, 1 entrée guacamole con nachos, 3 repas principal (Enchilada de Pollo), 7 bières importées et 2 desserts. Total de la facture, taxes comprises : 159 $. Je regrette de ne pas avoir découvert ce restaurant avant mais je suis tout de même heureux de pouvoir en profiter maintenant.

I have eaten at La Hacienda twice over the past year, and yes, the margaritas are very good.

They have a small terrace on the side street, conveniently raised from the sidewalk, and it is pleasant to sit out for the evening after Van Horne's traffic has subsided.

We ordered a guacamole and a gazpacho for starters. The guacamole comes in a generous portion with plenty of tortilla chips, and the gazpacho is served in a glass with a pretty cucumber setting. They both tasted fine, although there was a definite hint of cooked tomatoes, such as passata or tomato paste, to the gazpacho. Too bad, especially because there are no salads on the menu and I was in the mood for some fresh, raw vegetables.

The stuffed peppers were not available, apparently they don't serve them in summer ( I must admit that always annoys me, after having chosen something on the menu, to be told they don't actually make it), so we both decided on the same dish, fish enchiladas. They were an original twist on the usual beef or chicken version and quite tasty within their green tomato sauce and broiled cheese topping. The only drawback was... there was nothing to accompany them. No salad, no rice, no beans, nothing but two lonely enchiladas in a small ovenproof dish. For 17$, I was expecting a bit more food....

The service was pleasant and fairly attentive.
They only had two types of dessert on the menu, and none that we wanted, so we went out for ice cream instead.

I have to conclude by saying that I felt disappointed not with the quality, but with the quantity. A generous salad serving on the side would really not cost them much and help make the meal seem worth the price...

I have been several time to this very family oriented truly Mexican restaurant. The sauces and ingredients are very fresh and tasty. They have a nice terrace. Ask the chef (or the boss-- his wife) want he suggest and enjoy a very delightful and enjoyable meal. Only in California or Mexico will you find comparable...

This is a restaurant that I have taken to dining at on many occassions. The only thing that keeps me from eating their more regularly is that I would hate for it to ever become routine. This quaint restaurant with yet fabulously sumptuous dishes, is one that every Montrealer must discover. Owned by a truly generous man who remains passionate for his cooking as for the pleasure his clients obtain from eating his magnificient meals, this is a one of a kind experience. For a real break from the world and a tasty slice of Mexico, you must come to La Hacienda.
