    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.

    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

    Tacos Campechanos. Just like home. Gracias!

    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....

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

    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.

    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.

  • Melchor D.

    Los camareros son muy atentos. Te hacen el guacamole en directo en la mesa. Muy recomendable el Taco gobernador y las magaritas

    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!

    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

    Delizioso il Tinga Beef Burrito in salsa chiplote. Solita sciacquetta da anglosassoni il Mojito. Fatevi assolutamente servire dalla bella e spigliata cameriera greca

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

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

    Undeniably fantastic food, but expensive and some of the portions were small (ice cream especially). Wahaca serves about the same quality Mexican street food for a lot less. Amazing Micheladas though.

    Great two course lunch special for just £9.65 during the week.

    Very hot spicy chiles Toreados

    If you order the tacos, make sure you've got a magnifying glass with you.

    Daniel Watkins · December 6, 2013
  • Delfin V.

    They don't do tortas anymore, no other take away suitable option. Very, very disappointing!

    Delfin Vassallo · November 29, 2013
  • Liliana V.

    Pretty authentic considering it's not even in the same continent as Mexico. Order a Michelada with your favorite Mexican beer to chase a nice shot of añejo or reposado tequila, salud!

    Liliana Villanueva · November 24, 2013
  • Tim C.

    Get in early for lunch as it gets proper busy. Good for veggies, GF / coeliacs, 'real' Mexican lovers and those who partake of the Margarita.
