Great menu selection and super service. We dined outside of busy hours and it was great to have the place to ourselves.

The food was amazing. We chose the feed me menu option and despite the fact that my friend is Vegan and I am gluten free they were able to not only accomodate this request, but also provide delicious dishes for both of us.

Ordered the Feed Me option for $65 pp. Elote and Ceviche were both excellent. Fish tacos were pretty good, but the fish itself was not particularly flavoursome. The main (Pork cutlet) was terrible, and spoiled the overall meal.

We had our first post-lockdown dinner and drinks here on Friday and it was so exciting. The food was outstanding, as were the drinks, and the wait staff were friendly and helpful.

I used to live in Texas, and really miss decent tortillas and tacos. Taquito is one of the few places in Australia that does them right! I LOVE this place - it's my favourite dinner spot in Melbourne - and have been here many times now. My favourites are the lengua and the crispy fish tacos. Excellent guacamole too. Their corn tortillas are 100% legit.

I wasn't expecting much more than a typical Mexican cantina. Food and service were great. It's basically gourmet Mexican food.

I really enjoyed the experience overall, but I do have some issue. The ceviche which was more like a tiradito/ crudo was very tasty. Portion was moderate. The tacos were nice, but
I paid 26 dollars for 4 Tacos and $20 per drink. I know some of the cost can be chalked up to Melbourne pricing, but honestly it was ridiculous. 8 dollar for a flour tortilla and 3 pieces of mushroom? You could get 130 tacos in Mexico for that price. I have worked in hospitality both here and in the Americas- I just think restaurants need to be more realistic and less outrageous with their pricing. There are missing the traditions and basic concepts of Mexican fare.

Really beautiful food and such warm service! The chefs menu was generous, and the house made tortillas were to die for. Service was really charming, was a great first dinner out again.

Great atmosphere, I loved the lay out of the restaurant with dining an open chef kitchen out the back!
We had the 'chef feed me'. Grest array of food, delicious main course, sauces to die for!!
And we found a Mexican beer better then Corona! We will be back :)

Went here for the first time with friends and my kids. The staff were very accommodating and the chef even put together a dish for my fussy daughter that wasn’t on the menu!!
Highly recommend the tacos here, lots to choose from and reasonable priced.
