El Gusano Taqueria
Really nice and relaxed place. Great little garden and very nice authentic food. We will be back.
Lovely spot for Mexican with a twist. Wait staff was friendly and very helpful with decisions and recomendations. I will eat there again.
Thoroughly enjoyed our night. Great atmosphere matched with excellent yet not in your face service and some excellent street food - often hard to find in sydney. We can’t wait to go back.
Staff very friendly, informative and helpful. Something a bit different. Street Food.
Food and service were amazing. Definitely recommend from that perspective. Very relaxed, rustic setting but we enjoyed sitting outside. Blankets that were available came in handy as it was a bit cold. One down side was that being part of the youth hostel building we were subject to some of their smoke. Otherwise a lovely experience
Loved the atmosphere, service & most importantly the food was truly authentic & delicious, will definitely be back
Awesome mexican food and drink experience! Best on the northern beaches!
Always great food. Good cocktails and fast service
Some of the best Mexican in the beaches with super friendly service to match
The service wasn't great we had to ask for our drinks after the food came. We asked for the dips to come first before the tacos, but the tacos came out first. The guacamole and corn dips were tasty the prawn tacos were pretty tasty but the pork and crackle tacos were bland and had no condiments just the meat. Could be a great local place but is lacking so far in my opinion.
Yummy fresh flavours and a really cute relaxed eatery. They had run out of seafood options early on a Saturday night which was disappointing but would definitely go back.
A wonderfully authentic Mexican, the courtyard has a lovely vibe, the food is sensational and the service is second to none. We are so happy we discovered this spot. Will be regulars for sure.
Awesome place to go for a meal and a few drinks.Cant wait to go back.
Attentive staff and chef. Food was very different from usual Mexican and beautifully presented. Small neighbourhood restaurant with courtyard and inside tables. Good for couples and families.
I will be going back definitely.
Excellent food, excellent atmosphere, excellent service!
This restaurant was serving Mexican street food and it was very good. Small amounts but very nice food. I would go again.
Definitely a hidden gem. The food was incredibly tasty, authentic and well presented. The service amazing. It will be a regular for me now!
This was our first of many visits to El Gusano! This has got to be the best Mexican food I have had, it tasted so different to the standard. Not only was the food fantastic but so was the service. As we had never been before they explained all the food to us which was great!
We would highly recommend this place if you like authentic Mexican food along with great service and ambiance!
Awesome food staff and value . Nice change from other “Mexican” restaurants
Love this place.I have been a few times now and can’t find anything on the menu that I wouldn’t order again.The staff are always so friendly and happy to help.
A bit expensive at $7 per small taco
Believe that around $10-12 for a serving of 2 tacos would be more appropriate
Most people dine in pairs, so two tacos per serve wouldwork better
so that 2 people couod order say 3 different tacos and have one each
Great food, friendly staff, intimate venue. We’ll be back
Really good food and a great spot to catch up with friends
We enjoyed the experience, it was different with authentic Mexican food as opposed to the usual Tex Mex at most Mexican restaurants. The food was very good as well. The only suggestion would be to have 2 tacos, tortillas or similar for each dish instead of 1. Often a couple would be dining and 2 dishes would give the opportunity to both try it. I think people would be prepared tu o psy say $10 for a dish with 2 as opposed to $7 for 1 and I think they would still spend a similar amount overall.
Had a wonderful night, really enjoyed the authentic Mexican cuisine. Highly recommend.
Food was very tasty: its Mexican street food - I would have liked more salad options - the hosts were extremely friendly and the ambience was good. Try it for yourself
1 st time and definitely not the last. The cosy and welcoming environment was very refreshing .
The owner/waiter was sweet and very Friendly.
I highly recommend this restaurant to anybody looking for great food,atmosphere and a relaxing fun night.
We tried the new El Gusano Taqueria Mexican restaurant on their Taco Tuesday night. The food and atmosphere is great. I would recommend this to anyone who wants authentic Mexican street food. They have a great bar and inside and outside dining available. Lots of posters on the walls which adds to the atmosphere. See you next time!
Great food , atmosphere , friendly staff, delicious food . My new secret spot to go .
The most authentic Mexican food in Sydney. So good !!!
So yummy. Great food, service and the best margaritas. Great value for money
Awesome authentic Mexican! The best Tacos we have had back in Australia since spending 6months travelling around Mexico! Will definitely be back!
Was expecting good things from this place after reading some reviews from different sites, however my husband and I were left highly underwhelmed. Out of 4 tacos only the chicken one actually tasted great and was tender. The chorizo was very dry, the goat over cooked and no taste, and as was the pork :( . The selection of sauces did help to add some flavour. The cocktails are also not good. I tried a classic margarita which tasted like lime cordial, wayyyy too acidic and no tequila taste, and the El Diablo not sure what the flavour was meant to be but again couldn’t taste any tequila in it. The three waitresses were friendly but none of them knew who was serving who even though there were literally 3 other tables with people dining. Shame as there as not really any ‘authentic’ Mexican restaurants on the beaches.
Good food, a little more expensive than similar local restaurants. Good service, couple of mix ups but should improve over time.
