Patio was so comfy! Covid friendly, a lot of social distancing.
Services was on point, we never felt like we were waiting for something. Drinks and food, the best!! My favourite was pulled chicken but you must have the churros! So delicious.

The outdoor seating setup is really good, considering the times. Lots of options for food that make it easy for any kind of event. We really enjoy it here and is a great spot for those of us inn the neighbourhood.

Our party was able to sit under the heated, covered patio which was lovely. The drinks were great - I had a fantastic margarita. The food was amazing; I would recommend trying the elote and the ceviche. We will definitely be going back!

I usually love El Pocho but the service has been so bad the last two visits. We did not get cutlery for almost 15 minutes after our food arrived. We only got water when we arrived and it was never refilled after. We were brought the wrong food. The food here and chef is so good it is too bad the service does not match.

A quiet family gathering for my wife’s birthday at one of our favourite restaurants. It was great to see after a few months absence due to Covid, that the food and service still exceeded our expectations. They had spruced up their outdoor patio adding heaters and added a few new items to the menu. Yummy!

Everything was excellent. It would be hard to make a bad choice here. The chorizo and cactus appetizer was a real treat.

Choices for vegetarians are top notch.

Wonderful food! The service is very on point, helpful and polite! It's hard to find a place that caters to people with gluten intolerance and at the same time have the mexican dishes taste so authentic!

Staff was very nice and COVID careful. However, we probably wouldn't go back. Cocktails were not great - way too sweet. Tacos were meh and found they didn't have much meat on it and ceviche barely had any fish, too much onions.

It's a small restaurant but the server seemed overwhelmed on the Friday we were there. The taco flavours are creative but not quite as amazing as they ought to be. The margaritas are good.

I had the pear cider and it was SO good. It's served warm which was perfect for the chilly day! The main thing that I really love about this place is that everything is gluten free! EVERYTHING! They do have some beers that are not, but all the food and the cocktails are gf and it's like a dream to be able to order anything from the whole menu :3
Our server Kajsa was lovely, so friendly and chatty, very prompt and happy to accommodate.
