Some of the most enthusiastic staff I've encountered and the whole place had a fantastic casual atmosphere, and whilst the food was nice I've had much better tacos for less elsewhere.

Food here is so fresh and tasty. So many different flavours all packed into a soft taco. Swiftly prepared and presented beautifully. Tasty cocktails too.
If you're a foody you have to go here!

Our experience was very disappointing. The starter was really salty, so much so I couldn't eat it. Our main course (a veggie taco sharing board) was cold - not slightly warm, cold. The taco shells were soggy from where they must have been left on the side for too long which made is really unpleasant to eat. When I mentioned this, the waitress said that this shouldn't be the case as they bring everything over as soon as it's ready... Which obviously wasn't true in this case.

The service in general was good and our waitress was very friendly and topped up our water, asked if we needed more drinks etc.

The door of the restaurant was open as it was a hot evening - but this meant there were a lot of flies in the restaurant which ruined the ambiance a bit!

I requested a table in a quiet spot of the restaurant (as my husband is hard of hearing) which they kindly accommodated and it was quieter than sitting in the main part of the restaurant.

The cocktail menu was great and they had a good selection of beer, but the food wasn't good at all.

Overall disappointing and I wouldn't recommend.

The food & drink is good (w/ the exception of the classic margarita) but the service is absolutely appalling. It was my 4th (& last) visit to Downtown Taqueria & frustratingly every time I have received the same terrible service- unacceptably long waits drink, wrong food order, inconstant attentiveness, items randomly added to bill & just a general lack of care or compassion from all staff. I really wanted to like it, as Mexican is my favourite, hence the revisits & they have the potential to be great but its always been extremely disappointing & frustrating!! You

Really nice set up. Good tacos and good cocktails. 4-6pm happy hour is great. Be careful with the habanera sauce (brown sauce) its crazy hot.

Really nice to order a range of tacos and share with everyone.
