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.

Had a reservation but were 8 mins late so our table was given away, fair enough though because it was packed - the food more than made up for it. Fatty Lamb ribs. Get them. I cannot emphasise this enough.

Again, another amazing evening at Touche hombre!

Great service, food and vibe..I've been a couple of times now and the staff are on to it! They do a great job, all with awesome energy!

Cocktails and food are always yummy. Great tequila and Mezcal options, and the interior is jazzy!

Perfect spot to eat and drink with friends or family! I'll be back again no doubt!!

Thanks for another great night Touche team, we all loved it !!

When we got to the restaurant they had either overbooked or got it wrong because they didn't have a table for us. Very disappointing. So didn't get to try anything.

Food was absolutely delicious! The Elotes corn was a stand out and also the fatty lamb ribs, though they were much hotter than we'd anticipated they were still incredible. Definitely worth a visit!

I noticed this place has been rated in the urban list of Mexican eatery’s in Melbourne and decided it would be a great location for my partner n I to celebrate a birthday.

We where late for our booking due to traffic but didn’t receive a third degree about it , quite the opposite , seating was ample at the time , the staff where friendly and personable and our orders for drinks and food where taken swiftly and nothing disappointed.

The margaritas where top notch and creative and the food was delicious and creative.

The stand out would have to be the fatty lamb ribs, fall off the bone and delicious.

Looking forward to taking a large group to this establishment and having a few drinks and a great feed.

Food was decent, nothing to really elevate it above any other standard mexican. Service was outstanding and cocktails were delicious (and strong).

Would recommend although perhaps on the pricey side.

Drinks are over priced except when half price happy hour is available - awesome!
Chicken tacos - very tasteless and boring.
Lamb tacos - OMG AMAAAAAZING!
Everything in my friend and I's opinion could have a little more seasoning.
Cocktails are great and fresh.
Service outstanding.
Will go back for the lamb tacos, they were an absolute stand out.

I don't like to leave negative feedback and I rarely think there is an occasion to leave it. However, the service was incredibly unwelcoming. Not rude or unpleasant but just the general feel. We didn't feel welcome, taking out order was a bother and nothing about the experience was personal. Maybe they were having a bad night. We will be back to try again.
