Food was delicious! Very tasty, filling and a great selection of choice! Service was a little slow (the waiter took a while to take our order) but other than that, it was great!

The food was amazing and arrived very quickly. The service was a little slow but all the staff were lovely so we didn’t mind. The great music really added to the atmosphere. Would 100% recommend to anyone!

Great food and very attentive, friendly service. Cocktails are good too. It was our second visit, and I can see this becoming a favourite.

Outstanding food with a very competent and efficient service. Drinks were authentic and had a Mexican twist, which was in keeping with the theme. Would definitely visit again

The food and drinks were great with one exception, the guacamole. No pepper, no salt, no chili's equals blunt taste.

El Taquero is amazing, great food, cocktails and atmosphere. Would definitely recommend for something different. It can also accomodate quite large parties. There's something for everyone and it's not all spicy! I like the Tinga Chicken best & the spicy chips! You can get lots of little plates to try different things & it's reasonably priced. They always do a special Magherita. Last time it was a Vimto one, can't go wrong!

This place is the best thing to happen to Mexican food in England. Amazing food and with happy hour, it's one of the best deals in the city.

Nice little restaurant for a casual lunch/dinner. The waiting staff was really helpful and friendly. In my opinion the food standard wasn't consistent. Some of the dishes were really really good and some were disappointing. For example the sauces and the Taco Tinga were excellent, even the tortillas they use feel quite authentic, but the basic things like 'guacamole' and the 'arroz rojo' were really disappointing. I think with some improvements this place could be a great eatery!

2 out of 3 tacos dishes were dripping with grease/oil. Service was ok, was waiting a while for the bill and then to pay but the waiters were busy.

But the toilets are a disgrace
People judge the standard of a restaurant by the cleanliness and upkeep of the toilets

Service was a little slow at first, particularly for the first round of drinks. The food was excellent though and the staff were very helpful in assisting with dish selection.

Fantastic, authentic food accompanied by diligent and friendly service. Perfect atmosphere with perhaps a few too many Shakira songs (maybe not enough for some). Definitely will be returning to sample more of the vast menu.

Loved my recent visit to this hidden gem in Manchester's Northern Quarter. Food was plentiful and delicious - all very varied and tasted fresh. Beautiful sangria and the service was great - staff were so friendly. Sat downstairs which was quiet - perfect for me and my parents. Upstairs was more lively.

Second time visiting and a great place to eat some Mexican cuisine. Good flavours, great staff and lovely atmosphere. They were out of a few things but that show how popular they are!

Came before a concert in Feb as we needed something quick so taco Tuesdays was perfect. The food was amazing and only cost us £18 for 2 people! Will definitely be back.

The staff are excellent. The descriptions and explanations of dishes are thorough and interesting so you'll like know what to expect but as the menu is authentic the dishes are still an exciting surprise for someone like myself with a limited experience of Mexican food. Would recommend to anyone.

Main courses arrived before starters , no outstanding flavours making each portion indistinguishable from the others , bordering on bland . Very disappointed as we had been looking forward to this visit as there is very little on offer in Manchester apart from usual chains serving Mexican . Have done always enjoyed Solita so expected same standard . Perhaps I expected something like I've had in US .
