I used to live in Texas, and really miss decent tortillas and tacos. Taquito is one of the few places in Australia that does them right! I LOVE this place - it's my favourite dinner spot in Melbourne - and have been here many times now. My favourites are the lengua and the crispy fish tacos. Excellent guacamole too. Their corn tortillas are 100% legit.
I wasn't expecting much more than a typical Mexican cantina. Food and service were great. It's basically gourmet Mexican food.
Nice place for a taco & a beer before nova. I’ll be back!
Amazing food & fabulous cocktails served by knowledgeable and friendly staff. All in all a wonderful experience.
I really enjoyed the experience overall, but I do have some issue. The ceviche which was more like a tiradito/ crudo was very tasty. Portion was moderate. The tacos were nice, but
I paid 26 dollars for 4 Tacos and $20 per drink. I know some of the cost can be chalked up to Melbourne pricing, but honestly it was ridiculous. 8 dollar for a flour tortilla and 3 pieces of mushroom? You could get 130 tacos in Mexico for that price. I have worked in hospitality both here and in the Americas- I just think restaurants need to be more realistic and less outrageous with their pricing. There are missing the traditions and basic concepts of Mexican fare.
Ya like Mexican food? Ya like Mexican drink? Ya like food and drink in general? Then you've got no excuse not to try this Taquito
Cozy spot for delicious food and cocktails. Service was unreal, really knowledgeable about the menu and gave us some great recommendations. Thanks for a great night!
Tacos were average....not sure some of the flavour combinations work
We had such a great meal here- the food is of outstanding quality, the cocktails were unique and delicious and the service was attentive, informed, engaging and friendly. Will definitely be back!
Had an amazing time, perfect food and service. These guys rock.
Service was great and the food was outstanding!!! So delicious. And the Patagonian red wine was amazing :)
My friend and I will be returning for sure
Taquito is definitely worth a visit for innovative Mexican (mainly) cuisine. We has a great time there with good food, good wine and excellent service.
Really beautiful food and such warm service! The chefs menu was generous, and the house made tortillas were to die for. Service was really charming, was a great first dinner out again.
Great atmosphere, I loved the lay out of the restaurant with dining an open chef kitchen out the back!
We had the 'chef feed me'. Grest array of food, delicious main course, sauces to die for!!
And we found a Mexican beer better then Corona! We will be back :)
Great restaurant, perfect for date night or with friends/family. Food is delicious and staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
Went here for the first time with friends and my kids. The staff were very accommodating and the chef even put together a dish for my fussy daughter that wasn’t on the menu!!
Highly recommend the tacos here, lots to choose from and reasonable priced.
Great food, great drinks, great service. Thank you!
Wonderful resteraunt which we regularly frequent. So happy it's open again!
Amazing service and food! Will definitely be back :)
We were happy that our first "out of isolation" meal was at Taquito - best Tommy Margaritas in town!
Really awesome, friendly service. Great food and vibe
Slow service in terms of waiting for food - for a starter we ordered that was forgotten. Otherwise good food, good drinks range and accommodated meal choices for vegetarians and non-trip eaters.
The food was stunning, I am not a huge Mexican fan, but this food was delicious
Great hidden bar/restaurant. Excellent margaritas, thoughtful and tasty Mexican food, friendly and attentive service. We’ll be going back.
Food was great! Drinks were awesome. Overall a great vibe. See you soon Taquito
Very tasty food, however I wouldn't recommend to come here for lunch. Although the food was very good, the portions were quite small for the price we paid. But I'll definitely come back to try the dinner menu.
The food was delicious, the service was great and the atmosphere was bright and fun! We even went back after for some more cocktails! I would highly recommend!
Brilliant food. Had the taco flight myself, with a variety of food ordered around the table. Everything was delicious, and while I was worried the taco flight wouldn't be enough as the taco's were fairly small, the quality was so good that with dessert, I was very pleasantly full. Can't recommend highly enough!
We got one plate, then other after 20 min and the other 3 after other 20 minutes although we ordered at the same time. I specifically asked for no sweet potato taco and still there it was on my plate. The waiter was very nice though and he brought a different taco afterwards.
This place is a great find in Carlton, if you're after some respite from the mostly Italian offerings in the area. Fitout is warehouse in style, and a cool atmosphere out in the back section where I sat. Great drinks menu with good coverage of alcoholic and non-alcoholic options. Food is delicious and authentic - either pick your own (we did that and shared amongst our group of 6) or have the $50pp Feed Me menu. Service was knowledgeable and efficient, and overall a great experience.
I am so glad we discovered this restaurant on OpenTable - with a family member visiting from the UK we wanted to take her somewhere cool, that has character but knows how important quality food and service is. Well, Taquito has it all! With homemade tortillas too! Upon arriving and letting them know we had a booking we were told we would have a table in the dining room but we opted instead to sit in the bar near the open window as it was a nice sunny evening. The bartender did a great job of explaining the menu and I think we agreed to all his suggestions ("would you like to start with some chips and guac?". "how about some queso too if you like cheese?"). We tried some of their seasonal cocktails with the salty grapefruit and spicy blood orange palomas being standouts (with a real kick!). Between the 3 of us we opted for different menu options; one did the Taco flight and the chef happily accommodated her request to not include fish, one opted for the larger plate of masa fried chicken with hot sauce, pickles and tortillas (again recommended by our server) and I chose to try 2 tacos (sweet potato and crispy fish) and the tostada with cauliflower, garlic, kale and pinenut salsa (can't remember the exact ingredients). The sweet potato taco was yum although nothing too special about it, the crispy fish, although recommended by another reviewer was more batter than fish so a little too greasy. But the tostada! Oh my days! It was creamy, spicy, crunchy and overall delicious. We found Taquito to have a great vibe with nice décor, fab music, cool cocktails, tasty food and friendly staff. Plus tortillas!
Very nice food, awesome service, great tasting cocktails. Just be prepared to pay for it all...
Fantastic concept and execution. Such a nice change from all the tex mex in Melbourne
Best margaritas in town and the fish tacos are Delicious
Taquito is by far the best Mexican food I’ve had in Melbourne. The food is incredible, cocktails are delicious and the staff are lovely. Excited to go back!
Overall a good experience
Food was amazing, so was the service. Will definitely be back again and again.
Most authentic Mexican dining experience Melbourne has to offer. Fresh tortillas make all the difference.
Gracias Anthony! hasta la proxima
Wow! Felt like I had been transported to Mexico the night we visited. Excellent friendly service from start to finish!
We went for the TAQUITO “Feed Me 6 course menu’ $50 per person Where the Chef chooses dishes for you! Ceviche, Stuffed pepper with Oaxaca queso, mini street corn, fish tacos, patatas con ensalada, beef on bone with handmade tacos, churros with homemade spicy choc sauce. Think chef may have spoilt us with a couple extra dishes! To say we were stuffed and couldn’t move was an understatement- well we could roll out door! Luckily some of our friends could be given some of the food as it was a lot! Make sure you bring your appetite- you will not be disappointed. Paloma was on point as well! Muchas Gracias por delicioso comida!
What a great find this is! Delicious and interesting Mexican food in a great space. Not just your ordinary run-of-the-mill Tex Mex, this is the real deal with some outstanding dishes (try the beef short-rib DIY tacos for a taste sensation). Our waiter was delightful and attentive, and we loved the original cocktail list. I went there with a group of girlfriends and we all loved it, would go again!
