I love this place. It's nice atmosphere, and great food. Not what one expects. Quails eggs with pumpkin seed paste, and the Chile Relano stuffed with squash - YUMMY! Best yet - Tamarind Margarita... and DELICIOUS TEQUILLA! Bets to order a bunch of tequilas between a few friends and then try them out – some are nice and spicy. Had never experiences tequila in this way – served with a nice tomato juice accompaniment – REALLY GOOD! I’ve been back a few times now… will continue.

I went here with a group of friends the other night and I really wasn't expecting much, but they had awesome food and amazing service! We were a large party with no reservations and they were so accomodating. I would recommend this spot to anyone. It's no overly pretentious but still a great place for a nice dinner.

It's hard to find great Mexican food in Manhattan, especially when you're from southern California and you KNOW excellent Mexican cuisine. Papatzul is original and amazingly tasty, the desserts are a must! I've brought friends to dine here who don't really know good Mexican food. A bit pricey, but well worth the visit.

We enjoyed the eats, but the bar was stupid slow. Decor is not exactly cantina-like. Hopefully it will work out the kinks.

A wonderfully creative menu that makes it hard to decide what to order. The swordfish was the best we've ever had. The owners/chefs pay attention to every detail and it really was a fabulous experience. Do not skip dessert...

margaritas were good. my friends had the hearts of palm salad and all it consisted of was a plate of iceberg. Guacamole was too salty for my tastes. However, the tortilla soup was really good. Menu is very limited and on the expensive side.

I have enjoyed 3 meals at Papatzul in the past 2 months. I sat at the bar last Saturday with friends and the bartender gave us a course in tequila 101. What I love about this place is the experience, each time the food has been really fresh and delicious-- must try the ceviche with scallops and the duck enchiladas-- and the ambiance very special. A place to bring good friends!
