Fairly large restaurant with a vibrant atmosphere. Friendly, attentive staff explained the various options and were on-hand throughout to ensure that the dining experience was excellent. The menu is comprehensive and some elements quite spicy. It was cooked well and presented in typical Mexican fashion. The nachos, burritos and tortillas were tasty and filling. Most dishes can be made suitable... More

Great little find, reasonably priced with great menu and staff. When we arrived at just after 7 pm we had a choice of seating, within thirty minutes the place was almost full. I love this place, it's so quirky and fun.

What a fantastic place. On our holiday in Portugal, we where disappointed by the local food. That's the reason why we chose a Mexican restaurant. Best decision of our whole trip. The taste of the food was really good, the price was very good, the people where nice and you really got an Mexican vibe in the restaurant. Because it... More

We didn't realise till arriving in Faro, that a lot of places close on a Sunday....January! We were hungry and happened upon Taco, normally we would not eat Mexican in Portugal, but with limited options we decided to give it a go. Friendly waiting staff, young clientele, a lot of students. Service was good, food arrived quite promptly Well cooked,... More

We went here for dinner. The decor is warm with lots of graffiti on the wall - I filled probably the last space. There are wooden tables with tiles on the top. Service was very pleasant, and the meals were tasty and with decent portions. I think the meals are pretty good value. There is pleasant music in the background,... More

Visited Taco y Tequila quite early in the evening (around 7pm) and had the whole restaurant to ourselves for most of our time here. We had one of the vegetarian options and chicken fajitas with a side of guacamole. Food tasted healthy and fresh, even the garnish/salad was nice. Our waiter (young guy with braces) was very friendly and even... More
