Most authentic Mexican dining experience Melbourne has to offer. Fresh tortillas make all the difference.

Wow! Felt like I had been transported to Mexico the night we visited. Excellent friendly service from start to finish!

We went for the TAQUITO “Feed Me 6 course menu’ $50 per person Where the Chef chooses dishes for you! Ceviche, Stuffed pepper with Oaxaca queso, mini street corn, fish tacos, patatas con ensalada, beef on bone with handmade tacos, churros with homemade spicy choc sauce. Think chef may have spoilt us with a couple extra dishes! To say we were stuffed and couldn’t move was an understatement- well we could roll out door! Luckily some of our friends could be given some of the food as it was a lot! Make sure you bring your appetite- you will not be disappointed. Paloma was on point as well! Muchas Gracias por delicioso comida!

What a great find this is! Delicious and interesting Mexican food in a great space. Not just your ordinary run-of-the-mill Tex Mex, this is the real deal with some outstanding dishes (try the beef short-rib DIY tacos for a taste sensation). Our waiter was delightful and attentive, and we loved the original cocktail list. I went there with a group of girlfriends and we all loved it, would go again!

Amazing authentic, modern Mexican. The cocktails were delicious, and the taco flight is a must. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend

Taco flight was great value, the ox tongue being the star! Staff incredibly welcoming, will definitely be back.

6course feed me menu was tight and cheap for guest instead of introducing what they do or offer. Might go back for taco though. Good taco and vibes

The food is excellent, fresh, the right amount of spice and well presented. Interesting combinations of flavours. The drinks are good value and compliment the food. Service is very good and friendly.
You can order multiple small dishes or more substantial serves.

I've been here three times since it opened, and every time it's been sensational. I lived in Texas for a long time, and this is the by far the best modern Mexican I've had in Australia. The house-made tortillas are excellent, every taco they make is delicious, and the carnitas and taquitos are great too. Nothing but praise for this place, and the front wine bar is great for a drink too.

This venue is just a little of the main Lygon Street drag and all the better for it. Great food, drinks and service at a reasonable price. Now a firm favorite in an area with many choices.

Our group of four had a terrific night at Taquito. We chose the feed-me option and we're so impressed with all of the courses. We certainly left very satisfied. We had an amazing margarita and then two bottles of wine from a really interesting wine list. The staff were very helpful with the drinks choices as well.
I'll be showing this place off to other friends very soon.

I loved this place - the selection of tacos I ordered were all excellent and I particularly enjoyed the eggplant achiote as well as the beer battered fish taco. My waitress was smily and chatty as were all the staff I interacted with. I would definitely return there during my next stay in Melbourne.

We have now dined at Taquito three times and each time has been better than the last. We cannot tell enough people about how great the food, service and beverage offerings all are.

The care that goes into the food is awesome, and the fact that the tacos are handmade makes it even better. Definitely order the broccoli - it's next level, and the churro's are a must have! Great atmosphere, and fabulous staff top off the experience.

Muy delicioso! Everything was what we wanted it to be. Smoky cocktails, good choice of pet nat wine and a warm and chilled out vibe. You can taste the difference in the hand made taco bases and the lamb is rediculously tasty. Plenty of vege options and little sides perfect for sharing. I've gone in groups both times and the space is perfect and has killer playlists. Kid friendly too which is a bonus. This joint is exactly what Carlton has been waiting for :)
