 (Berlin)·Dined 7 days ago

Very helpful and friendly staff. However I found the food to be overpriced for what it was, and fish especially tuna was overcooked.
Also when sitting downstairs there is a strong smell from the bathrooms (which could be much improved) which is very off putting when trying to eat.

I had the duck which was tasty but came with a side of beans that didn't match with the dish and made little sense, my gf who is French Canadian had the poutine, this is not a poutine in any sense, very disappointing, cocktails were excellent but didn't arrive until well into our meal.

Amazing food and margaritas! I would recommend it. I had the veggie nachos as a starter and the fajitas for the main course, and they were absolutely delicious. Service was very good as well., nothing bad to say, great experience.

Good veggie-friendly brunch menu but very noisy - we went for a friends' catch up for brunch and could hardly hear ourselves talk over the thumping music. Wouldn't go back for any meal that was intended to be a catch up opportunity. However service was absolutely super and food was fine - it's just the noise that was incredibly off-putting.

I really liked it here. The food was really good! It is more expensive than most tapas places so would only recommend for special occassions. Orders came quick & service was very good. The portions are filling so I would recommend a starter to share and 1 main course for each person.

This has been my third visit to Taco Taco. The staff are always so lovely here and the food arrived very quickly after ordering, which was great! I had the breakfast for champions, my only criticism would be around the black pudding, I felt it was a big over cooked, but everything else was delicious!

Had a lovely meal there. Service was prompt but not too pushy. Food was good and as described on the menu. The hard surfaces everywhere and loud music made it a little difficult to have a conversation without talking very loudly, which added to the high noise levels.

We were downstairs which was much quieter than upstairs. Downside: they seated us directly next to the toilet even though there were many more tables free. Food was good. Unusual brunch choices. Hipstery

Love this place usually, the servers are really friendly but the new guy at the front desk was really rude and condescending, spoiled the occasion for me a bit. I got the feeling he was the manager. Would be hesitant to return because of this, but the food was lovely as always.

I had been before with a friend and had a lovely meal so I recommended it for a friends birthday on Saturday night. Service was poor we were at least 40 minutes waiting on our main course plus I didn't get what I had ordered even though I had repeated my order because the waiter had repeated it back to me incorrectly initially. Considering three of us ordered the same main-to him yet all were different when they arrived to the table. I really enjoyed everything about my first visit however Saturday was extremely disappointing.

Maybe I'm getting old or we might have been directly under a speaker but weew the music was louud. Would be great if gearing up for a night out but we were there for Sunday brunch. Most of our food was good but the burrito was a real let down (very dry, like a wrap with basmati rice and little else going on), and the mimosas weren't great either. Homer brunch & French toast were brill though. Overall pretty good but I wouldn't be rushing back.

Dined on a Sunday @ 7. Food was delicious. Hands down the best mole I have ever had. The guacamole was fantastic, as were the empanadas (thought the crust was better than the filling). Only disappointment was they were out of 2 out of the 4 desserts we tried to order, as well as the tequilla we ordered. Also, they close the kitchen at 8 on Sunday, so don't show up too late!

Good location and varied menu - been a few times and always enjoyed the experience. Duck dishes have been a bit too fatty the last couple of times I visited but passed on this feedback to staff who seemed appreciative of the feedback. Otherwise really enjoyable venue with a lot of menu options, mostly very tasty

Brought 5 friends who were over from the uk for the weekend and booked a table for six. First person we met through the door was quite rude and dismissive, we were brought to our table downstairs which was a tight squeeze for 6! Starters were good and arrived promptly but after 20 mins of waiting after the starters were cleared and not being even looked at by staff, our waiter came over to tell us that the dish one of my friends had ordered had sold out. Now I know these things happen but we should have been told before the starters arrived and I would have assumed our mains should have been nearly ready by the time we were informed that one wasn't available!!
This lead to another half hour wait before the mains arrived. Unfortunately they weren't worth the wait. Sickly sweet dressing on sweet potato fries, chicken tacos that were somehow bland, same for beef fajitas and haloumi fajitas along with some more sickly sweet southern fried chicken. Overall very disappointing mains. However the duck tacos were tastey at least.
Service wasn't exactly attentive and was sometimes dismissive. We didn't bother drinking much because we all wanted to leave fairly sharpish but a bill of 280 ish incl service charge was on the high side for mediocre at best food and poor service. Not unpleasant but a very underwhelming experience unfortunately. It was fun because we were in good company but that's about it! 4/10 I'm afraid
