It all started 50 years ago, with El Farolito, a taquería in a little corner of the then unknown Colonia Condesa, located just west of the historic centre of Mexico City... London"s most authentic Mexican taquería. The same tastes, ingredients, flavours and smells as found in Mexico City.

    Tasty quick Mexican meal and available in many corners in London. Shrimp tacos are good

    It's bigger than it looks! There's a basement floor

  • Arvid S.

    Very good and tasty food. It gets really busy though. I can just recommend that restaurant

  • Cedric T.

    Don't judge it by its modern look. It's proper Mexican home cooking, heaven in a plate. That's its flavours and quantity.

    The classic margarita is perfect

    Const Ht · December 21, 2015
  • David J.

    Stay away from the jugs of Margaritas. Not enough alcohol and way too much lime.

    Guacamole with nachos

    Omer Hasson · December 1, 2015
  • Ankur B.

    Get the Guacamole Artesanal for nibbles / starters: freshly-made guacamole right at your table, and good to share. Might take a while for wait staff to arrange for it.

    Not good. Ceviche has nothing to do with real ceviche. Just disappointment.

    Some of the best Mexican food you'll eat in London. Really reasonable prices! A must is the guacamole and tortilla chips... They make it at your table.

    Ate here one night after Wahaca to compare & simply put there isn't a comparison. The guacamolito was good with great chips but everything else was only ok.Go to Wahaca instead

  • Heena K.

    Great atmosphere & service was top notch. Only a fan of the vegetarian burrito, the guacamole & the cactus tostado were all disappointing. Churros so went down a treat but the cake was pretty bad.

    Heena Karani · May 24, 2015
  • David K.

    Not a fan. Order double as the portions are very small.

    David K · April 21, 2015

    Burrito and conchinita pill bill is very very good, portion of burrito Is very big

  • Beej O.

    This place is hit or miss sometimes. When it's not busy, the food comes out slow and cold. Waitstaff very friendly. The chicarrone de queso is yummy

    Beej O · January 26, 2015
  • Sarah C.

    Order the table side guacamole

    Sarah Conrad · January 5, 2015

    Best Mexican Food I've tried in London so far, Pastor Tacos and Micheladas are excellent!

    Raquel · November 15, 2014
  • Damian

    Service was slow, disappointing portion size, but drinks were well-mixed. We were offered a free (tiny!) guacamole to move to a crappy table. Okay....

    Damian · November 8, 2014
  • Erin C.

    Not cheap for the pseudo fast-food style, but try Ensalada Maya to start. Divine intro to cactus.

    Erin Coburn · November 3, 2014
  • Georgia P.

    The tacos were very good, but if this is your main dish, it probably won't be enough. I had to order some more. The burritos on the other hand were a good portion.

    Georgia P. · October 16, 2014
  • Christiaan H.

    Get a cheese horn

    Christiaan Hendriksen · October 5, 2014
  • Alexia K.

    Much better Mexican chain compered to wahaca, big portions, try the burrito and the excellent guacamole they prepare on the spot

    Alexia K · September 21, 2014
  • Thomas L.

    Really tasty and a fair price. Also really kind Personal

    Impressive Mexican food

    Dipesh Shah · September 13, 2014
  • Sheila T.

    Delicious horchata and churros. Sadly the quesedilla were tougher and greasier than I prefer and the service was painfully slow, despite buttons with a hotline to my waitress' wrist.

    Sheila Thomson · August 20, 2014
  • Amanda

    Mexican! The tacos with sustainably fished yellow tail is really fresh and tasty. The big fried cheese dish is a bit salty but tastes good with the dip. Becomes addictive! Acapulco golden drink yum!

    Amanda · August 9, 2014
  • Pearse K.

    Had the Gobernadors - amazing with a squeeze of lime. A really memorable dish - made me want to order another course.

    Love the little remote server call buttons. We didn't need it on our visit, but it would come in handy. I wish they had these in Paris... :). Wifi password: taco0414

    Chiles Toreados are not for the faint-hearted.

    Takeaway Option for train travel. Beats charing cross Burger King or "delice de France" every time

    Alex Balfour · March 24, 2014
  • Karina A.

    The Margarita was really good!!!! But the mains are very small. I would leave it as good option for cocktails only
