Quality has changed since we last went. Have been going for over a past couple years so hoping once off. Nacho much smaller than previous and quac was pretty tight. Lamb ribs were overly oily and tacos were okay.
Hope it was just a once off bad day in the kitchen
I pre booked 3 weeks before turning up to make sure we got a seat as we were on a trip from New Zealand. We turned up on time, took 5 min to get served and taken to a table. The noise was so load from a long large table of guys next to us that it was impossible to hear. We waited 10 min and never even got asked if we would like a drink and looked at the menu to find it was limited because of the Greek festival. We were not told this when booked and feel this was a huge let down. We had been looking forward to this while on our trip as one of the highlight evenings for us. We had arrived back into Melbourne from Bendigo and parked up at our hotel. We got a Taxi at a cost of $24 to the restaurant to get there and not get served. We walked out after being there for 15 min and no one even asking us if we would like a drink. We then paid another $24 to get back to our Hotel and went for a meal at the Hotel.
Complete waste of an hour or more and nearly $50 travel to not get served.
For us to go to the effort of paying that much for a taxi you can imagine how disappointed we were.
Went on a Tuesday night with a friend and the staff who served us was super lovely and friendly, and gave good recommendations on food. It wasn't too loud on the night but the place had a nice ambiance. Highly recommend!
Good food. Excellent Service. However our party of 5 was seated at a very large round table which meant we could only effectively converse with the person on our left or right.
love the ever changing menu and even bringing in chilean and columbian food. Service was mazing - out waiter was tremendous
My new favourite Mexican place in Melbourne! Everything we tried was delicious. Highly recommend the chilaquiles and the cauliflower tacos. And the jugs of rose sangria. Staff were super friendly and the vibe was awesome. They were quite busy even though it was a weeknight, so I suggest booking ahead to make sure you get a table. We'll definitely be back.
LOVE LOVE LOVED our first visit to here. Everything about it was yummmm. The staff are so attentive even though they’re busy. The waitress made sure all my allergies were catered for and they even made sure there was no coriander in my boyfriend’s food just because he doesn’t like it. Then the bartender took the time to explain and recommend different tequilas for us to try. Highly recommended 👍
The food was pretty good, although I think the corn should be off-cob. But the service was really dreadful. Drinks came out far apart, and long before the corn chips. It was impossible to get any attention and we watched drinks sit on the bar for 15 mins before people got fed up and fetched them themselves. I’d understand if it had been really busy but it wasn’t, though the bar was quite understaffed. Quite a disservice to the very nice food.
It took an hour to get our food and it came out at all different times. We had finished our dinner when one of my poor friends received her final taco...
The food was also very bland.
The greeting was good, and food was good too. But the tacos we ordered were not served at the same time. I got my tacos when everyone else already finished theirs. And my red wine was served when everyone else almost finished their drinks. When we got the bill, it was really messy - they overcharged for one more lunch. We had to do the calculation multiple times to find out where the overcharge was from. Overall, the food was good but service was really bad. I really think the restaurant should work on the management.
Great Mexican joint in Melbourne - will be back again :)
loved the food, loved the staff…definitely coming back!
Great food! Really enjoyed the evening and was able to book through opentable, in the past I recall at some stage there was no bookings so I was pleased by this.
The lunch deal is great value and the food was lovely and fresh
Not sure if ownership/management changed, but the restaurant’s decor and menu are different and not for the better. Why change something that worked?
Great dinner. I absolutely love this place, food is amazing and perfect start to a night out
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.
Yes, nice food, good vibe. We really enjoyed our meal (and cocktail)
Great food and ambience. Friendly staff and yummy menu. Will definitely return.
The cocktails were the standout! Loved the fruity margaritas
AMAZING! Most caring and helpful staff.
Food was also so filling and tasty. Enjoyed every single bit of it!
Beautiful food! Fresh and tasty. Would definitely recommend to any Mexican food fan
Could not fault this at all. We had a great time with friendly staff and amazing food 😍
5 out of 5; absolutely fantastic food, service & ambiance. Will easily go back there for another work or family function.
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
Staff were very responsive to our needs and had great suggestions regarding meal options, drinks options.
Great atmosphere and wonderful service. Highly recommend getting a bunch of share plates because it’s hard to choose the best one!
The lamb ribs... My God the lamb ribs. So damn good. Will be coming back without hesitation
Amazing food, tasty as. Excellent service Only detractor is the noise in the restaurant makes it difficult to have a conversation.
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!
Great Mexican food, vibrant atmosphere & great service all made Touch Hombre a fabulous place to eat out when visiting Melbourne. Would highly recommend this gem to anyone wanting a a great meal.
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.
Amazing food and service - a bit too loud to have a good convo
Always delicious, service is perfect and everyone is so wonderful!
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.
