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.

Had been wanting to visit Taquito for a while on recommendations from friends.
Surroundings are great, really nice atmosphere and the service was awesome. Drinks were the highlight for me, the waiter recommended some cocktails that didn't disapoint, some of the nicest I've had for a while.
It was pretty busy but the food took ages and when it arrived it was all cold and quite underwhelming. The main dish we got for the table to share wasn't what I imagined and wasn't very big for a main, and again, cold which isn't what I wanted.
Would visit again for drinks and for the vibe but might avoid the food next time.

I really wanted to like taquito. Great atmosphere and really lovely staff. But the food does not hit the mark. Taco's need more flavour - salt and acid is the key to good mexican food. And the home made tortillas seem undercooked. The burrito was also quite tasteless. There is much better mexican food around. But the starters are delicious and the cocktails are great. Service is also excellent. S

Food was great, drinks were great. Service was a little inconsistent. A set menu was required for a booking of ten people - I would have preferred to be required to order in advance rather than have a set menu as nowadays there are so many dietary requirements.

Everything was superb. They sure know how to sling a juicy margarita that makes it hard to leave. Huge taco menu with so many delicious options and sides. Sat outside in the sun and soaked up the good vibes. Staff are not only good looking, but friendly, attentive and can teach you a lot about Mexican cuisine. Oh and don't forget the mezcal list, it will be sure to make you sleep well that night!

Service was over the top and annoying from 2-3 waiting staff, we were interrupted every 5mins to order food/drinks and it was uncomfortable. We were 2 friends catching up having not seen each other for ages and felt really pressured by the staff to get in and get out. A real shame because the food & drinks were actually great!

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.

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.
