Been to a few Mexican restaurants in Johannesburg. This was one of the best. The food we ordered was spicy(which is what we like) the portions were huge. Good staff. Loved the cocktails. Very clean toilets. Will certainly go back when next in the area.

Dinner was very average - we had Nachos which tasted very processed which was disappointing. Must have caught them on an off moment. The service was great and the atmosphere was very festive. I will definitely give them another try.

Picasso’s Mexican Taqueria became a reality in White River, South Africa, in 2014. Inspired and modelled on Stratos and Debbie Perakis’ Picasso On The Beach, located in Naxos, Greece, three families joined forces to bring Picasso’s to life in South Africa – the Perakis from Naxos; John & Lyn Davis, who have been visiting Naxos for 20 years and enjoying Picasso’s extraordinary Mexican food for 18 years; and Tracey & Olaf Golitz, who visited Naxos for the first time in 2014 and fell in love with Picasso On The Beach. Picasso’s Mexican Taqueria offers freshly made Mexican food for lunch and dinner, while you sit back and sip our famous Margaritas and watch the sun set over the farmlands.
