Breddos started out as a makeshift taco shack in a car park in Hackney back in 2011. Since then, we’ve gone on to do residencies and pop-ups, Street Feast, a cook book, as well as a cook-off at LA’s Tacolandia festival in 2016, before finding a permanent home for ourselves in Clerkenwell. Our food is influenced by the hundreds of roadside taquerias and restaurants we have encountered on our travels throughout America and Mexico, whilst utilising the best of British produce from passionate producers such as Phillp Warren and Son and Wild Harbour in Cornwall.

One of the only great places for tacos in London! Definitely go for the chicken tacos or the baja fish ones!

Food was nice and the menu had a lot of interesting variation on it. I just wasn't particularly 'wowed'. Everything was tasty though. Service and staff was really good. Décor & atmosphere was relaxed and cool.

A regrettable negative review given previous positive experiences but the tacos were completely stale and the host sat someone else at our table, denying existence of our booking.

The portion sizes have decreased over the last 6months from 3 tacos to 2 tacos per order and the prices are the same.

Always judge a restaurant by (a) how many locals are there and (b) whether you would go back. Breddos wins on both counts - v cool, v busy, fab food, great tastes, lovely atmosphere, great service too. Will be back whenever in the area

Although the flavours of the taco fillings were good, the tortillas were rubbery and crumbly, almost tough. The food is also quite overpriced, we paid £21 for a small steak and 4 tortillas! Salsas are £1.50 for a thimble sized portion. I would not recommend.

Great little restaurant with good quality food, good cocktails and good service. The menu itself has a modern and international twist on tacos. I did miss some of the more traditional tacos on the menu. The winners of the evening for me: the Fried Fish taco and the frozen margarita!

Thanks for the nice dinner!

The tacos here have great flavour, but are were very difficult to eat as tacos (vs with knife and fork) as they were difficult to fold and their sauces had a lot of liquid in them which would drip all over the plate when you picked up the taco. The prices of individual dishes seem reasonable enough, but the bill adds up very quickly as you make a meal out of smaller dishes (5 small plates plus an order of chips & salsa between 2 of us). I love this style of food, but would only visit regularly if it was easier to leave full for 1/2-2/3 the sum we spent.

I came here as Breddos we’re taking part in the Refugee Food Festival which is a lovely initiative. The food was delicious, good value, and the setting was cool. I’ll definitely come again.

Fantastic, scrumptious food and amazing service. The atmosphere is cosy and the tacos and everything is delicious. The waitress that we had was so nice! I would highly recommend this place for a cosy dinner.

Great food, loved the tuna tostada! Service was a bit slow but friendly. Taco portions are quite big so it's not bad for value. Would recommend!

Incredible food and service was initially great until we were asked to leave to make way for the next table. This was an hour ten into our 1.5 hour booking - disappointing after spending close to £200.

Went for the bottomless brunch on a Sunday. Was very quiet when we got there at 12.30 but filled in more later in the afternoon. The frozen margaritas were tasty but seriously not alcoholic at all so if you don't like the other drink options, be warned, it's probs not worth the price for the 'bottomless drinks'! All the tacos on the bottomless brunch menu were tasty (especially the chicken and fish). The black bean tacos were very spicy but delicious. We didn't like the egg tacos. The sweet potato could've had some more time cooking as it was a bit too firm in the middle. The tacos themselves were actually overfilled (which made them very satiating), but would've preferred about 1/2 the amount of filling or a larger tortilla to make them easier to eat.

The staff were lovely and the menu was great, well considered flavours. The restaurant was quiet and they were extremely flexible and obliging to our needs. A great team and great tacos!

Food was great - if anything came a little too quickly as we were in at a quiet time. Not a place to linger, but brilliant pre event spot.

The space is very cramped, they tried to squeeze us into the tightest spot in the corner of the bar area. The server made some mistakes, she apologised but got quite defensive about it, they did rectify the issues. It's an average e I'd say, not very affordable for what it is.

Service was very good. Very nice and tasty tacos. Sharing plates can do with couple more tortillas, but there is an option to pay for more. Cosy atmosphere and just nice vibe.It was good experience and we will go back.

There are very few places to eat around the Barbican but this is a nice, cheap option. It was dead on the weekend, given it's Clerkenwell, but the food was good.

Went for the “bottomless” brunch of unlimited tacos and drinks, except the service was slow we maybe got three drinks each in the time allocated, and the food came out even slower and was missing things we ordered.

Waitresses were rude and would blatantly ignore us. Would not recommend to anyone.

Plenty of other options to sit but placed in the middle of the main (empty) table. Everything else booked - we had booked too!
Food was great but £80 for tacos for 2 is ridiculous.
Unlikely we’d go again.

4 of us were hoping for a fabulous brunch experience last sunday. But they didn't have a majority of the food or alcohol options on their pre-fix (eat all you want tacos) Sunday brunch menu and even though coffee was part of what was on offer as part of this prefix brunch menu, they made us wait for 15 mins to tell us that they has run out of coffee, no apologies, nothing. 1 of the 5 taco options never arrived despite of asking twice. Of the 4 different beer & cocktails on offer as part of the drink all you want option, only beers were available and they were only able to serve 1 of the 2 frozen margaritas we asked for. They then tried to charge us full price on the "unlimited alcohol" option when two of us had only ordered 1 drink each (and we had specifically asked if this would be ok at the start of the service). They eventually begrudingly agreed to correct the bill, but we left feeling that we just didn't get the value for what we paid for. The nonchalance of the server when questioned about all this was just disgraceful. Never going back (even though the tacos that did manage to serve were delicious).
