La Hacienda Restaurante Serving Authentic Traditional Mexican Food In Downtown Peterborough!

La Hacienda is a family owned and operated restaurant serving the best authentic traditional Mexican food in Peterborough and the Kawarthas.

We invite you to experience our menu of authentic traditional regional specialties from around Mexico.

Enjoy one of our famous margaritas made with fresh squeezed juices and sample our "guaranteed greatest guacamole" made fresh daily, all in a relaxed atmosphere and with an ambience that truly is a little piece of Mexico in Downtown Peterborough.

Fresh, Healthy Authentic Mexican Food.

So, is Mexican food healthy food? The answer is both yes and no.
Traditional Mexican food, which is what we prepare at La Hacienda, is high in nutrients, packed with vitamins and is generally low in fat.

Unfortunately North Americans reinvented many of the traditional dishes and replaced all the good healthy ingredients and spices with oil, fat and calories -- which are what you'll find in most so called "Mexican restaurants" in Peterborough and throughout Canada and the United States.

If you want to experience the benefits of true Mexican cooking, avoid the fast food and Tex Mex operations, and sample authentic cuisine here at La Hacienda.

Traditional Mexican food is one of the most colorful and varied cuisines in the world. Mexican dishes are prepared with loads of fresh produce, protein-packed beans, fiber-filled tortillas, and nutritious spices like chilies, garlic, cloves, cinnamon, and cumin.

Canadian style "Mexican food" is usually high in fat, sodium and calories, and it uses less of the fresh, nutrient-packed ingredients that reflect traditional Mexican food.

Delicious Healthy Choices For Our Guests.

Our food looks beautiful, tastes delicious and is a very healthy choice.
We prepare all our food items in the traditional way, like soaking our beans, making our own broths and soups and featuring only 100% corn tortillas.

Our menu also offers many "vegan friendly" choices that allow all our guests to experience a taste of Mexican culture through our cuisine.

Menu items are all prepared mild, unless specified to be spicy and we also offer to the table a variety of condiments and sauces to help "spice things up".

And if you have a favourite dish that you don't see on the menu then just ask - we'd be delighted to prepare it especially for you!
