Margarita Colendra is a small, yet cosy Mexican restaurant situated in Warsaw’s up and coming Praga district. Just a few minutes walk from Dworzec Wileński train station, this is a good option for those wanting great Mexican food without crowds and away from the main streets of central Warsaw. The menu is like the venue – small and to the point. It’s a one-room, Mexican-themed restaurant with a small bar. The Mexican chefs cook up daily specials, with an accompanying sauce. Ice-cold Mexican Corona is served from the fridge with a fresh slice of lime, and a salt-rimmed michelada, a treat here.

There are also quotes in Spanish adorning the walls of this quiet little restaurant.
