We've recently been to Viva Mexico on a Friday for lunch. They were supposed to open at 1pm but the waitress was late so they made us walk around for a while while we waited for her to arrive.
Finally we were able to sit down and we were the first customers there. We are not really familiar with mexican food but we were together with Mexican people so they guided us in the choice of the dishes. Flavor-wise we can't complain, we liked everything we ate and portions were adequate as well.

The big let down for us was the service: super slow! We had to ask several times for any need we had - from an additional dish to more nachos and salsa etc. All the other tables were served before us and the waitress too really seemed unhappy and quite pissed. Never a smile, never a nice word.
They noticed that the lunch was going downhill so they kindly offered us a taste of churros which were of course appreciated.
We could be back but we really hope that service issues will be solved.

We had lunch at this new restaurant and were happy to discover good Mexican food in Doha! The food was wonderful; very flavorful, well presented, and sensibly portioned - filling but not so much that you could not eat it all. The restaurant decor is cheerful and fun and it is nice to sit outside along the canal. Wait staff were well trained, welcoming and pleasant.

Thanks to Jesus and Pepe for a memorably delicious feast! The tortilla soup takes you all the way to Mexico with every spoon. The Mix Mexican Molcajete is well served (with shrimps, grilled beef and chicken, halloumi and mushroom) and full of flavour. It comes with tortillas, Mexican rice and beens on the side. They have a wide variety of salsas from non-spicy to kicker hot. Friendly staff and great ambience. My Mexican home away from home. You HAVE to try it!

Viva Mexico is a newly opened restaurant at The Pearl.
The place is nicely decorated with authentic mexican stuff and vivid colors. Food is very good as well as service. The guacamole with nachos is great and also the tacos and enchiladas.
I’d definitely come back again.
