El Santo Mexican
The menu is packed with fresh, vibrant Mexican flavours and options to share, set to delight. Menu items start from as cheap as the charred street corn with queso and lime for $8 with tacos, quesadillas, and also larger mains that can be shared for a great experience. In addition, we offer an extensive beer, wine, and cocktail list. Oh, and of course tequila, mezcal, and margaritas!
Many vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options are available.
We are open 6 days a week, and hold a license until 1 am on weekends. The restaurant is family-friendly, wheelchair accessible, and available for functions.
Such a great restaurant. The best Mexican in Geelong honestly - everything is so fresh and doesn't feel like heavy greasy Mexican you usually get at other restaurants. Although service could be a little better, quicker attendance to you after seating and additional drink prompts. The tables need to be a bit more spread out if possible, I was so close to the person behind me, they hit me in the head - definitely not 1.5m distance between. Other than that a really great restaurant, relaxed vibe and amazing food and drinks. Will always return here.
Food, cocktails and staff all on point. Will be back again just for the nachos and spicy margaritas
Best Mexican food in Geelong, and the staff were amazing and informative! 10/10 would recommend
The food was very good, we spent a nice time there!
The food was excellent and the staff very helpful. The open floorplan of the restaurant made it a little noisy but not unpleasant. I would recommend El Santo to anyone who enjoys quality Mexican food.
Have dined at El Santo several times and have always found the food and service excellent. The only down side is not being able to have a coffee to finish off with. Hopefully coffee might be added to the menu in the near future. Otherwise really enjoyed it.
It's a great local Mexican place. Food was very tasty and staff amazing service! Great atmosphere.
I can't recommend El Santo's enough. Great food, great service, great cocktails.
I was unfortunately very disappointed, as we've been on the search to find decent mexican food since we moved to Geelong from Texas 3yrs ago. We've come from a place that does some of the best mexican in the world besides Mexico itself, and this is so far from it, we weren't quite sure what we were eating. The service was excellent and loved the atmosphere. The salsa and guacamole were the highlights ( if only the chips weren't stale)but everything else was flavorless and seemed like the most basic cheap ingredients thrown together. It's a shame and unfortunately won't be back. So sorry
Delicious food. Good value for money, not huge portions but still decent. Great flavour in everything we ordered!
Great friendly staff. The food was amazing. The drinks were tasty! We all had a great night. Will definitely be back!

My boyfriend and I enjoyed food and love it
Food was delicious. I highly recommend the home made soda's (and the cocktails). Staff are friendly and professional.
Amazing food and cocktails!! Great service!
Food was OK but not amazing. I had a vegetarian Chimichunga and my partner had the beef Chimichunga. The highlight of the meal was the desert, which was churros with caramel sauce.
Super helpful attentive staff, catered easily for food allergies, fun ambiance and really yummy food!
Such a great vibe and experience, and had lots of options for vegetarians which I appreciated and the food tasted delicious.
If your going to go here get the feed me they will spoil you and you will be full well worth the price and the staff are fantastic.
Food is beautiful and fresh, and has a great range for vegetarians and vegans. Friendly service too. We love this place

Great food, drinks and atmosphere. Unfortunately our food took 1.5 hours to come but hopfully that's just a once off.
