Taqueria reviews

Taqueria do such excellent guacamole, and it's hard to find a restaurant that doesn't serve it out of the jar but Taqueria do homemade and it's wonderful. The other food is lovely but the guacamole stole the show for me!

As a big fan of Mexican food I thought I'd try Taqueria. Turned out to be a very good choice. Went on Friday night with no booking and still got a table, and even though it was in the bar area near the entrance rather than the main restaurant we still seemed to enjoy ourselves tremendously. With regard to the portions, the tacos are small but only because this is how they are served in Mexico! Yes perhaps the prices could be lowered slightly but remember it is Westbourne Grove we are talking about. The wait staff were excellent, very friendly and many are actually Mexican which makes a huge difference. The star of the show was the drinks. Their Margaritas are some of the best I have ever had. Go for these alone. Another addition to my burgeoning list of good eats in London.

What rubbish. The staff are some of the most friendly in the area and whilst you could never describe the food as Michelin starred, it offers an authentic taste of Mexico in a great atmosphere at a reasonable price (for Notting Hill). Without alcohol, you can have a dinner for 2 for under £40 and feel very full. It is out favourite local. The kids also love it and it's very child friendly.

My expectations were high when visiting this restaurant. Being called "Taqueria" I was expecting something similar to the kind of food you could get in a real Mexican taco shop.

I was hugely disappointed. Portions are diminutive and prices are high. For instance I tried the "tacos al pastor" which are offered as a plate of 3 small tacos.

These tacos were no more than 6cm in diameter with very little meat in them and one small cube of pineapple decorating each taco. It was like a plate for a child and for £5.50 these tiny tacos were overpriced.

Then I had the "puntas de albanil" which were a pair of slightly bigger tacos but not large. Again, the price did not compensate for the dish.

The service was decent but the atmosphere of the place is rather gloomy and sad. This could have been forgiven if the food was good but it was not the case. The food was edible but not outstanding.

Overall not a nice experience eating there. I recommend to look somewhere else if you want something closer to a nice Mexican meal.

Something did not really feel right at this place. The staff were extremely polite and helpful but it lacked atmosphere and comfort, something which I generally associate with a Mexican restaurant.
The food was OK but nothing to write home about.


By A.

Don't go to Taqueria. I thought I would give it a go, even though it has so many bad reviews but I have to say they are all true. The food was average but vey overpriced for the taste and portions. The atmosphere was zero, the waiters were nice but not overly smiley or interested in explaining any of the menu.

The manager was rude and refused to give me a receipt as he couldn't print one! Overall it was awful evening and I wouldn't advise anyone to go to Taqueria ever!

Enjoy excellent food and drink in an informal dining arena at Taqueria.

The Venue
Taquerias - informal Mexican eateries that specialise in the making and serving of tacos - line the streets of Mexico's towns and cities. Although elegant Westbourne Grove may not be the first place you might expect to see a traditional style cantina, the premise works well and the place is very popular.

Don’t be alarmed by the taco machine in the window, the selection of disembodied Mexican wrestling masks above the bar, or the vintage wrestling movies on the TV. Grab a beer and let the efficient staff find you a table or a seat at the bar overlooking Westbourne Grove. Tables are crammed together, but not uncomfortably so, although with so many diners in one restaurant perhaps it’s not the venue for the claustrophobic.

The Atmosphere
The clientele at Taqueria are a blend of Notting Hillbillies, shoppers and South Americans keen for a taste of home, all talking animatedly at once. The service is relaxed but efficient, and the pace of the restaurant is slow and laid back. For this reason - and the popularity of the place - there can be a short wait for a table to become vacant, which gives ample time to appreciate the idiosyncratic decoration. The staff do their best to make you feel welcome, and will invite you to wait at the bar while they try to accommodate you.

The Food
Antojitos (meaning a little of what you fancy), tostadas, tortas and sopas are available along with an extensive selection of tacos. The famed tacos are served two to a plate and make a delicious if messy lunch, although be aware that the dishes are fairly small.

Fresh is the name of the game, and even the tacos are cooked on the premises. Despite this, prices are reasonable at the best of times, but for even better value go at lunchtime to take advantage of the special offers that are usually available.

The Drink
For authenticity, a fine range of imported beers are available at Taqueria, such as the excellent Pacifico. In addition, a wide selection of specialist tequilas - from more common varieties, to the rare Patron Gran Platinum at £20 a shot - is available to wash your lunch down (or your memory away).

Naturally, Margaritas are available, along with a very limited selection of Mexican, Chillean and Spanish wines. For those off the sauce, an adventurous selection of Aguas Frescas (Mexican coolers made with fresh juices) are available, in flavours such as hibiscus, lime, cucumber and guava.

The Last Word
Taqueria is about as authentic a Mexican eatery as you are ever likely to find in Notting Hill.
