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.
Regards Dave.

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.

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.

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?

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
