Delicious food. Hands down - chicken tacos were the best. The tacos are much bigger than street tacos and 2 are plenty. Vegetarian enchiladas were very yummy. DO NOT miss ordering guacamole. Love the salsa.
Extremely busy before a Sounders match so service was a little slow. Will definitely be back!

I love this place!!! The food is always great and the servers are super nice. I love the chips, salsa and guacamole even though it’s more than other places price wise, it’s so worth it. I also get guacamole to put on my meal. Make sure to ask for a to go bag if you don’t finish your salsa, they usually add some extra chips for for you too!

The ambiance of this place is great, we loved the brick walls and the rustic feel. The food was just ok, not overly flavourful. The drinks were meh, I’ve had way better margaritas other places. Our server was very nice but not very attentive. All in all it’s ok but I personally wouldn’t go back

Casco Antiguo was a great Thursday spot for dinner and drinks with co-workers. Our reserved table was in the front, near the door, where it wasn't too loud or too cold/hot.
We had the salad, pork tacos and chicken enchilda. For the prices, the portions were large and satisfying. We each took part of our meal home for later. I had the salad and it was delicious. The chicken addition was sizable (shredded chicken about the size of a deck of cards). It was great for lunch the next day. Highly recommend.

Normally the food here is pretty good, but this time was disappointing.

The steak was chewy, the tacos were dry, and the corn mash was bland.

The food was great the prices good but the door opens to the outside directly at the table we wereat and it was freezing. We asked to be moved and they said they couldn't even though the whole time we were there there were empty tables.

Casco Antiguo is a wonderful spot! Great ambiance with candles in brick alcoves. And the food is delicious. I loved my veggie tacos. And the sangria and guacamole was first class. And we appreciated Mexican donuts for a very special celebration.

Been going to this restaurant for several years. Three years ago we had a small wedding reception party there. This Mexican inspired food is not only good, but also very creative with a few changes seasonally. If you like spicy, they have drinks to accompany too. This was the first time we had churros - off the menu - and definitely worth the few minutes wait.

They were very accommodating of our large group reservation. The service was great and quick. There were many food options, including some for our vegetarian friends. Everybody left satisfied with the food and drinks. Highly recommended.

One of the best dining experiences in Seattle! This restaurant is always the most consistently well run and delicious places I’ve been. Even on New Year’s Eve they managed to be amazing (and that seems tough for a lot of restaurants)! We are excited for the remodel and will be back as soon as they open.

Amazing salsa and guacamole. Just like being back in San Jose Del Cabo. Great service and intimate room with festive view of Pioneer Square. Unfortunately, the rest of the meal didn't quite measure up to the chips and salsa. A for effort.

Excellent food. The handmade corn tortillas were incredible, soft and comforting. The tacos were incredibly tasty. We also ordered the octopus but this was the one dish that was a little disappointing as the octopus was on the tough side. For dessert, we ordered the churros. Churros, you say? How can this be anything but mundane and boring. Well, at Casco Antiguo, they are freshly made and excellent served with caramel sauce. This dessert and the corn tortillas really made the meal special.

This restaurant is located on a questionable street, but do persevere and once inside you are in a cozy and intimate room. The dining area is small so recommend getting a reservation. Great food and enjoyable atmosphere.

What a great restaurant! This is terrific Mexican food. Every Mexican restaurant starts with chips and salsa, usually free. It isn't here, which is a minor drawback, but the salsa more than makes up for that. It's thick, rich and smokey. We also had the ceviche, which was a generous helping of deliciousness. I had outstanding wild boar ribs, and my husband had the equally delicious Casco Antiguo Enchilada. It's noisy here, but you can carry on a conversation without yelling. High recommended!

The man who seated us appeared to be the owner, was very friendly and professional. We felt we had an exceptional seating experience and he was very nice. The waitress, on the other hand, was not attentive at all. She served us our drinks and food and that was it. No in-between interaction to check up on us, nothing. When she served us our food, she dropped some on the table and didn't care to clean it up. Also, in a heavy Spanish atmosphere, an erm... white individual who doesn't know what a Jarrito is let alone know how to pronounce it correctly, takes so much away from the experience. If they want to work at a Mexican restaurant send them to Chipotle, where they won't have to interact with Spanish speaking individuals. Also noticed that there was a back of the house where we weren't invited to which appeared to be much more lively. Actually, if I remember correctly we were told to pick our seats...

The only reason I downgraded this a bit is because there was about a 2 foot long hair on the table which grossed me out. Otherwise, the food was terrific and for a happy hour -- great value.
