The beef taco was absolutely tasteless, other 2 tacos were so so- I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant

Very disappointing. Has changed a lot since last visit. Very limited menu, no beer on tap. The vibe has changed. Shame when food was so great, now its ordinary.

Needed to catch eye of waiters but might have been short staffed day.
Otherwise typically high standard and fun time by all!

Nachos were a little burnt. They have started redecorating and it feels like it is going to kill the atmosphere

Margaritas were very good, surpassed only by a couple around town (and Cantina OK! in Sydney). Food was flavorsome and spicy, some authentic dishes, some not so authentic but still flavored fantastically. Ceviche was great, only surpassed by Chica B in Clarence St, Sydney. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the queso flameado and jalapeno croquettes. Tacos full of flavor, octopus won out over the fish, chicken and lamb, tho all good. All in all a fab meal enjoyed by four young adults, the main let down was the group of ten 20-somethings who were too cool for everyone and swore like fish wives, seated right behind us, but whatareyougonnado eh, everyone has the right to eat like a hombre!

They seated us almost in the door when we have reservation and there are several tables free.

The menu is very limited.

The waitress was not kind.

We booked through OpenTable but when we arrived they didn’t have a table for us and seated us outside. No heaters, cool night and cars/buses buzzing past. Expected better and the staff didn’t help at all.

The guacomole was bland tasting - not spicy or tasty - the one I make at home is much better. There was a dish of corn which just tasted all wrong - no matter how many ways we tried it. The corn chips were way too crunchy and again, bland tasting. The lamb ribs were good. The chicken had a sweet coating on it which was not very pleasant. Disappointed and will not be going again.

We dined on the 25/2/19 as it was my partner (now fiance) and I 18 month anniversary. Our first date was at Touche Hombre, and it seemed right to return to the site where our lives changed for the better.

We have dined here a number of times, and the food and service is always outstanding.

As you might have gathered, I proposed to my partner, and out of no where 2 of the wait staff appeared with a plate of dessert and some sparkling wine and strawberries. The staff are amazingly attentive.

There efforts of the staff, topped of an amazing night that we will never forget.

Thanks Hombre's

Their corn 🌽 is fantastic and I will be back for more of that. I also had the chicken tacos which were full of flavor and well presented. I have a gluten intolerance and there was a lot to choose from on the menu 👍

It was far to loud for our table of 6...it was a hot night and we understood that the aircon couldnt cope but feeling really hot coupled with pounding music and the people having to yell on top of that...we couldnt wait to leave. We would have hung around, drank more and had deserts but we just had to get out! I understand that you want a good vibe but maybe pump it up a bit after main meal service time. We had to yell at the wait staff to be heard and then they miss understood some of the orders.

The staff were very obliging about us changing our booking time. Thank you.
When we asked the waitress how much food to order, she recommended way too much, we had so much food left over.
The fish in the soft tacos tasted too fatty to eat, the oil factor was over powering, however we loved the nachos and fatty lamb.
This is our 6th visit and the food wasn't as nice as our other visits.
Having said that we Would return and try something different.

Ibwas on holiday with the family and we had a late lunch. Very good tapas and drinks. The music being played was very funky and energetic. Overall the vibes were execellent. We had the chicken tacos and grilled zucchini tacos, both were excellent. I also had a margarita which was very good. A bit expensive but worth it in my view. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Great spot, the lunch special of a corn starter then a couple of tacos and a beer or wine is top notch I reckon!

Service was good but slow. Some food was really nice but most was bland, cold and not very well cooked (octopus is cold batter??). I would be happy with it if it was more affordable but for the price I would expect a lot more.

Food was delicious although quite limited for a Mexican place. No burritos?
It was a cool vibe but the music was quite loud and struggled talking across the table.

Love this place, excellent service from everyone that works there, great food, if you’re not sure what to order go the feed me, the bar staff really know how to mix the drinks, and the place has a really good vibe to it, my tip book so you get a table especially if it’s a weekend.

It was a lovely evening, not much on the menu which was very disappointing. Made it hard to have a meal. Good for sharing but not good for a full meal. But everything was reasonably priced and the atmosphere was good. Little annoyed that we got seated on a high table as I had requested not to be so we didn’t stay for more drinks after the food as it was uncomfortable for us. But I would recommend them if you’re snacky or before a night out.
