Wonderful Mother's Day treat!
The staff and servers were very friendly and helpful and attentive. The ceviche was amazing, salsa very flavorful with just the right amount of kick, and enchiladas and chimichangas were delicious! This may be our new neighborhood favorite!

Although El Cisne is labeled
Although El Cisne is labeled as "Mexican food" its atmosphere is quite different from what one usually associates with such a place. El Cisne, at the NE corner of Swan and Sunrise, has a slightly more formal atmosphere, with actual white table clothes, but is not at all pretentious nor expensive. There is a nice variety of offerings, from usual Mexican fair (enchiladas, burritos, tacos) as well as a great selection of seafood dishes. We find their food well prepared, delicious and at a reasonable price, and the staff is very attentive. Chips and salsa, to get you started, are complimentary.

Dinner with a friend
A friend and I had dinner here two days ago as both our wives were otherwise occupied. My buddy ordered the special chicken enchiladas and I had the Cabrilla. For my money, this is the best Mexican food in town. The ambiance is sedate and classy; the service could not have been better, and the food was wonderful.

Great Mexican Cuisine with twist
Very glad to have found this new gem close to our house in Ventana canyon. Wonderful menu, small but well selected wine list. Killer Pisco Sour and sincere service. We will be back.

This is a lovely establishment--decor wise. We had an excellent food experience. I had a seafood soup which is similar to the Italian Ciopinno. It was terrific and wasn't overcooked, though the seafood was mostly fish.

My group went to lunch and to play bridge. The food and service was outstanding. The prices are in line with other Mexican restaurants. The atmosphere is very inviting. I have been there on 6 other occasions and will definitely return.

Excellent Mexican Food
The menu was an interesting combination of new and different dishes with the traditional fare still available. It was a lovely environment; decorated very tastefully with style.

Finding great Mexican food/Tucson
We went to El Cisne for lunch after reading about it in a local magazine, the Desert Leaf. We started with the usual complementary chips and salsa, and my husband ordered the Picodillo del Oceano--a chile relleno stuffed with crab and shrimp, deep fried and then topped with a tomato sauce. He thought it was one of the best chiles rellenos he had ever had. I had the Ceviche del Mar, which was also excellent. We would certainly recommend that you try it!

All the food from the salsa
All the food from the salsa to the seafood are so fresh and flavorful. The food is not heavy and greasy, just fresh and clean. The shrimp dishes are so delicious. We have dined there twice and would highly recommend it. The margaritas are made with real lime juice, not from a mix. The restaurant is kept clean. It is nice to have such a gem in the foothills. I can't wait to go back!!!
