Quality establishment, about time Melbourne got back a decent Mexican restaurant. Staff were excellent, polite, friendly, informative. Food was delicious, a modern Mexican take on classic dishes.

I had dinner at Taquito with 2 dear friends I hadn't seen for years so there was much to catch up on. In light of this, the staff were attentive without being invasive. When we said we had a show to get to at a specific time staff made our departure swift and easy.
The food was diverse and delicious, highly recommend the Zucchini flower taco.
I had rung to ask about wheelchair access, which apparently they have but it's through the back alley with cobblestones, but it was a lovely evening and so we sat out the front of the restaurant. We arrived to a table that had been reserved for us and was in the perfect position. If you're going to a show at La Mama Courthouse visit here first, cause it's just opposite - I'd be very surprised if you are disappointed.

Nice food, but not amazing. The service was good and nice to know they make a lot of the produce in house. Definitely not in line with their google star rating unfortunately.

The Chefs Feed Me menu is a great option if you want someone to take care of the decision making so you can just focus on the delicious food being brought out.
Our highlights were the ceviche and the elote, but honestly everything was so delicious!
They do a mean margarita, but their non-alcoholic drinks are also worthwhile. We had the tepache and the horchata, and would definitely get them again.
Thanks for a wonderful dining experience!

Delicous food, excellent service, and a lovely ambience; I will definitely return.
The tacos are small servings, and tasty (have a plate of four) and the serve of the potatoes was geneous. Good options for vegans.

This was my third visit to Taquito. With each visit I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing a renewed and diverse menu, offering a creative take on authentic Mexican dishes. Drinks list is also a highlight - excellent cocktails (esp. margaritas) and Spanish/Australian wines. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be going back!

The service was outstanding. Ceviche and Granny’s guacamole were outstanding. The Kiwizzler was my favourite drink but the margaritas were good as well. Tequila, tequila, tequila! Beautiful setting - will return for more, no doubt.
