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.

I am a regular visitor to Touche Hombre and enjoy it's funky and cool vibe. Working close by, I find it easily accessible, with a quick lunchtime turnaround. The service is friendly and the dishes are tasty and value for money.

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.

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.
