We went to Regalito with our local friends (we're from London, UK). It was the night of a protest and we walked through the crowds to get there...and it was worth it! The manager Eduardo couldn't have been more welcoming and even though there were 10 of us the service was excellent. Efficient but also very friendly and the food... More

Cute little restaurant, great atmosphere with fresh, authentic Mexican food. Service was excellent. They have a simple menu which enables the restaurant to serve high-quality, good-tasting dishes. This restaurant does not have a full liquor license but had a good selection of beer and wine. They do offer "agave" margaritas which my husband thought were good.

A delicious place for regional Mexican cooking, often seasonal. The guacamole is always just right. Between the rellenos and the mole, you can't go wrong

We don't seem to have much Mexican food in the uk, so a fairly new experience for our family. Very pleasantly surprised. Service great, wine very good. Food interesting and especially liked the Pollo Mole. Would go again.

Always friendly. Always good. Always fun on the back patio. I love this place every since it opened. This is not the place for those that only flock to trendy places because it's for people who like good food with friendly service and modern Mexican food. I love the fresh guacamole, chile verde, roasted chicken and brunches on the patio!

We had a great evening at Regalito. The food was decent (not outstanding), the service top notch and the restaurant looks nice, clean and cozy.

So... I got the food and it looked amazing!! But as soon as I took a bite, I was disappointed. The taste wasn't great but the presentation was good... I had the enchiladas:)

We were with a group of 7, and restaurant wasn't otherwise busy, so not sure why our service was so slow. Food was really good - everyone ordered something different and liked it all. Guac is great, although we prefer thinner tortilla chips.

Thank Bev C
