Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

You are made to feel very welcome as soon as you enter, with the staff making sure you feel comfortable with any fans near you turned in from the start. The BBQ chicken tacos we had were truly delicious and the mango mojito went down...very easily. Would highly recommend to any taco lovers out there.More

I had the pulled pork taco and it was by my own surprise the best taco I’ve ever had. I’m really blown away by this place. Layout of the place is very laid back, very good cocktails. Try the habanero salsa, so good!

We popped in here for lunch and were blown away by the delicious vegan options. Both the jackfruit and pumpkin tacos are delicious, and the guacamole was amazing! Also loved the design of the place and the staff were so kind!

Great food, we had prawn tacos, ceviche, tostadas and guac. All delicious and would recommend. We have been having lots of sri lankan food so was nice to have a little break and have some mexican.

Super friendly staff, great food, extraordinary cocktails in a cool and modern location! We also booked the Hideout Studio on 1st floor, which was an amazing place as well! Super clean with attention to detail, huge balcony, easy communication! Definitely a recommendation!

This place did not disappoint. We arrived early just before opening as it’s no reservations, the space was pretty packed within 10 mins of opening. Amazing tacos, and some of the best cocktails we have ever had. Try the spicy pineapple margarita! We wish we...could have made it back within our stay. Will be dreaming about this for a long timeMore

We came to the hideout twice during our week in Unawantuna! The service, food and cocktails were delicious! There was a power-cut both times but this didn't effect our experience at all. The staff were really friendly, and the vibe is very chilled. Would also...really recommend their homemade soda!More
