Dined on 25 February 2019

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

Ben & Kate

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.

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.

Just a pre-warning for those who want dine here on a public holiday. We werent made aware of the public holiday surcharge when making a booking nor when ordering. So expect the meal to be quite more expensive. But other that, it would be worth it on any other day.

usually touche is amazing and i'm always telling my friends to go and dine there but the recent trip has changed my perception. The food was just not as good which is a huge disappointment as you guys have been consistently delivering great food time and time again. The service was great and ambience as well but just a huge let down, we ordered chicken tacos and the touche guac both were very average :( Hopefully on our next visit we will get the same flavours as we are used to

Almost every dish we ordered we were told they had sold out of, it was 6pm on a Friday so I feel very sorry for guests who came over the weekend. The waitress new next to nothing about tequila or their cocktails. Food was good (of what they had in stock) but overpriced for the quantities. I have been many times and each time has progressively gotten worse, after this occasion I will not be returning

You don't very often get a bad meal in Melbourne in fact, in 20 years I can count three, but this is one of them. The music was earsplittingly loud. There were more waitresses than diners. Watched one write on the chalkboard for two solid hours. The food was below average but wait for this a cocktail is $18! and a jug $70! Even Southbank it's $12 a cocktail and $25 a jug. Never to return.

My friend and I visited for dinner while we were in Melbourne for a Business Trip and stayed on for a few extra days. This place was recommended by a work colleague and the food was amazing that we went back the next day to the Cauliflower dish. I will recommend this place to all friends that live and visit Melbourne. I know when I go back to Melbourne I will be sure to go back again.

Whilst the service was great, the food was terrible. I've been to Touche Hombre before but this was not the same experience. In particular, the tacos were not fresh and the shell was dry and horrible.

The food was great and well priced! notably the fatty lamb ribs were outstanding and would 100% suggest sharing them with a partner or friend. The Red wine although admittedly well over priced at around $50 a bottle is still a great drop and would reccommend the Tempranillo as it is easy to drink and a great accompaniment to the Ribs, Guac and Rice.

I left with a food coma and a full belly!

Compliments to the Chef and all Foh staff you were all over it!

Cheers,
Ben

I ordered standard seating when booking but we were seated at the high table even though standard seating was available. I felt like the front of house staff and the two Waitresses were more focussed on their conversation as we entered then on service. They kept talking to each other while the one other Waitress served all the tables their food and we had to wait 15mins before someone from behind the bar took our drink and food order. We had to repeat our order a few time to him because he couldn’t hear us over the music. We ordered the shared plates and Tacos and halfway through the service one of the Waitresses who finally had finished her conversation served us by placed the clean freshly plated food on top of a finished dirty plate instead of removing the plate. Not impressed. The same Waitress walked passed us three times without checking to see if our meal was ok or if we needed more drinks. Not impressed. Thus we didn’t order more drinks or place an order for dessert. Rest assured the food was great and the shared menu is generous...... you just might have to become the pushy customer to make some of the wait staff notice you, which isn’t our scene. For anyone interest, it was for my daughter’s birthday and she requested Mexican thus after looking at all the reviews online we chose to book here. We let’s just say, the food was great.

Great place but music overwhelming.
The place was packed and people were screaming to each other to be heard.
We were with friends and could not hear each other so left and had dessert coffee elewhere so we could catch up.
Others on our table sat without talking because of this

We really enjoyed Touche Hombre, it's got a good vibe, friendly and casual. We had the $40 shared menu and it wasn't a drama catering for the vegan in our group. The food was great, we would have liked a bit more of a break between courses but it wasn't too bad, however they did remove the unfinished guacamole so they could serve the tacos which wasn't a popular move! The tacos were great but would have liked to be able to choose which ones we wanted but the sweet potato taco was a really pleasant surprise. The vegan food was really good until the last course - a quinoa salad that was a bit of a mish mash with not a lot of flavour.
The margaritas were great and they had several Mexican beers although they were out of a few choices on the night we were there. All up we really enjoyed it and will go back, the food is great as is the service and general vibe.

The staff were really friendly, but failed to mention when we arrived at 6pm for our booking that we only had the table until 7.30pm. Also, the taco's are better value in the bar area next door than in the restaurant area. Fun ambience.
