Older gentleman was very kind that seated us. The problem was that no one came to our table after we were seated. A couple came in after us and got seated and got their orders taken right away. We sat at our table for about 10 to 15 minutes and no one came. We just got up and left.


The atmosphere is very cute and the service was good. The draft Pacifico was cold and Cadillac margarita was delicious. My carne seca soft corn tacos were delicious. My rice and refried beans had little taste until I smothered them in salsa and added salt. My wife’s black beans were very good and she thought the chicken enchilada was good. I thought it was rather blah. So, it was an adequate dinner but nothing special in a town known for great Mexican food.

First time here and dined post lunch crowd. Had the Chile con carne burro in red sauce. Not super spicy and not all Mexican is, but the meat was super tender and flavorful. It came with an option of black beans or refried beans. I did the refried which were good but lacking something. Will return to try another luncheon special as it's around the corner from my 3 month escape from NH winter.


El Cisne is a great (the BEST) restaurant on the North East side of town with authentic food and the freshest of ingredients!! I am a frequent diner at El Cisne and I always leave wondering why I don't eat here more often! The staff is friendly, quick and always provide first class service! My go to order is always the chicken flautas, but everything is great and the salsa (order some to go) is amazing!


We come to Tucson every December & January and always make a point of eating here several times. Their food is great and we LOVE the Chili Rellenos. The staff has always been friendly, courteous and helpful. Today the owner came over and chatted with us for a bit - a lovely gentleman.

The customer service was a disappointment. Three walk-in-guests that arrived after me were assisted before I was. The first hostess immediately addressed the other guest that had come in after me without even asking who had arrived first. I addressed the second hostess as he approached the waiting area & he told me that someone else would help me & seated a 2nd group that had arrived after me. I ended up walking out. I hope the poor service that I received as an individual was not on account of being a black female who happened to be wearing a sweatshirt that evening.


Great place for a regional taste tour of Mexico. Service was friendly and warm, and even if we had to wait a bit for our meal (it was VERY busy when we arrived, it was worth the wait. Servings were generous and the ingredients fresh. Would visit again.

El Cisne has great, authentic Mexican food, and the service is exceptional! Try the ceviche and fresh guacamole for a delightful appetizer and save room for the leche cake!Food: 5/5


Loved this Mexican restaurant! Excellent service from my waiter, fast service and an excellent chicken enchilada's. This place is very clean and well organized seating. The lighting is a little dark, so use your cell phone to look at the menu.

DELICIOUS FOOD, endless chips & salsa, killer server with gorgeous green eyes FERNANDO!!! Fernando was incredibly kind & accommodating he had great recommendations, was friendly, kind, outgoing, knowledgeable, he really made our experience what it was. We were fortunate enough to come on a Thursday night where they had a musician playing guitar & singing who was phenomenal!!! We sat & danced while we ate our food. Carne asada chimichanga covered in Verde Salsa is a must try its HUGE I took the second half home the portion was so large. The Cadillac Margarita was awesome & we will be back soon. Thank you Fernando for making our time there so welcoming. Looking forward to being back!

This place deserves 10/10. The spicy red sauce with the chips are the bomb. The chicken chimichanga with green sauce was amazing. Very fresh. Order the tamales, they are pretty solid. The atmosphere is pretty chill and friendly. Lizbeth, our waitress, was really funny and engaging. Definitely recommend.

This place is sweetly romantic. The ceviche is incredible as is the seafood soup that I had. The salsa and chips were also incredible. Definitely going back.

My first time here but I had to come after my mom raves about their albondigas soup! I tried their siete capas and their tortilla soup, which may be one of the best I've ever tried! The service was also excellent and we had our food fairly quickly!
