A "high-end" Mexican dining experience. Richard Sandoval's first Denver restaurant, still going strong. Don't miss the seafood rellenos- best thing on the menu. And a great tequila bar and happy hour.

Had a very tasty dinner at Tamayo with my wife and brother. My wife had the house specialty, the pork carnitas -- which were superb. The fish tacos were also very good. Service was also very good, unlike some of the reviews.

Tamagotchi offers fine Mexican food and drinks. There are good meat, fish and vegetarian options. The margaritas are strong and tasty. The guacamole is very good too.

This was recommended to us as good and walkable to the Pepsi center where we were attending a concert. All true. The hubs had something with the most delicious mole and the house salsa and chips were delicious. A little disappointed in the spicy crab...More

Description
The menus at Tamayo offer a modern interpretation of authentic Mexican food with recipes created by critically acclaimed Chef/Owner Richard Sandoval at his Maya Restaurant in New York City. Our warm decor is spectacular with amber & coral colored walls featuring exquisite artwork that includes silver encrusted toucans, silver and volcanic rock guacamole bowls & Mayan masks to keep a watchful eye over the restaurant. Tamayo is truly a unique dining experience for intimate business luncheons, dinners, social events and large celebrations as well.
