Amazing handmade fresh guacamole!

Definitely worth a visit if you like your guacamole fresh and prepared at your table. The sizing portions are quite small compared to normal mexican food served elsewhere, but enough for the Singaporean stomach.

Worst mexican in Singapore..mediocre food, watered down cocktails and rude/unprofessional service.

Worst mexican in Singapore..mediocre food, watered down cocktails and rude/unprofessional service. Music is either too loud so you cannot hear your friends or so low you cannot hear the music. Better pay a bit more and enjoy Viva Mexico at somerset or Lucha Loco at Duxton.

The waitress refused to give me a table below the fan because we were a party of 2 but then allowed two other people to sit there. When I challenged her about that she dismissed me saying she is busy. When I insisted I was there first she went over and she told these people that they need to move because "This guys wants THIS table" while pointing at me. Instead of saying I was there first she almost got me into a fight. On top of that she gave me the "are you happy now look". 

The whole night was marked by awful rude service alongside mediocre food and drinks.

Stay away! waste of money and time

looking for good texmex in singapore

A friend of mine told me about this resturant and said it wasn't to bad as compared to other mexican food resturants in singapore.  I have lived in singapore for 8 yrears now and have allways wished someone would open a good texmex resturant but it hasnt happened yet.  I think someone could make a fortune if they did it right........well anyway, my wife daughter and i went to Piedra Negra last saturday afternoon not long after they opened, the day was nice, sunny, a little breeze so almost perfect to sit out have some dinner and drinks,  we started with fresh mixed guacamole at the table which was best i found in spore, we ordered two margs that where fresh and you could almost taste the tequila :), followed by nachos for my daughter which she said was good, my wife had tacos de cameron but where no where close to mexican but she said they tasted good, i had flautas and where good.  Overall we liked better than anywhere we have eaten in mexican food in singapore...except at my houe when i cook mexican.  PN needs to add Borracho Beans, mexican rice, yello cheese, grilled peppers, corn tortillas, better margs, take off the non mexican dishes and create a real texmex menu!!!!!!!

Enchiladas

Lifeless, dry enchiladas are not recommended. Try the burritos and nachos instead. A good selection of drinks on offer.

Terrible Experience!

After a gap of a few months we recently returned to PN when our parents were in town.  We turned up at 7pm and were the only ones in the restaurant.  It's never a good start when the staff in a Mexican restaurant tell you that they have no limes for your margarita, no guacamole and no ceviche.  It was one of those moments when you know it's only going to go downhill and really we should have left but having had some great food in the past we stayed on.  By this time another table arrived and sat outside for drinks, each time they wanted a drink they had to walk inside to place their order.

The beers and cocktails all arrived served with limes, confused!  The nachos came with melted cheese and stone cold chilli straight from the fridge, so I'm pretty sure it wasn't made fresh that day!  The enchiladas arrived looking like a plate of grey gloop with mayonnaise and raw onion sprinkled on top.  The burritos had some flavourless 'meat' inside but none of the rice, beans or lettuce detailed on the menu instead these were served with a side of frozen crinkle chips!

We complained to the waitress, who made it quite clear she only took the orders and didn't really want to 'do' customer service.  She sent over the manager who's main aim was to let us know that the chef was Mexican and the crinkle chips were a hot seller!  His suggestion was that as our problem was with the food we should speak to the chef!  Needless to say this conversation was going nowhere, so we paid for our drinks and left.

With so many Mexican/Tex Mex places opening up in Singapore don't waste your time heading to PN.
