The waiter was inattentive. He did not make any suggestions after indicating I didn’t like anything hot. We waited for him to stop chatting with other servers without his mask on in the restaurant to get the bill.
Good food, cocktails, and service. Music is *way* too loud though.
Loved the Elote!! Tacos were amazing as well. What a great restaurant to ease back into in person dining.
The tacos were very good. The drinks were great too.
Service was poor, the waiter was new…but he must have apologized 100x for the delay. There was a ‘rush’ at 730 and it took a very very long time. The restaurant was only about 70% full. I’m a very patient person, but it was crazy that it took so long to make a taco. Most of the taco in ingredients are already cooked (pulled chicken, pulled pork, etc).
Hopefully they will be able to get more staff as I believe this place has great food. Unfortunately I won’t be going back anytime soo.
Great Tacos and Margs
AMAZING experience - Recommend the mushroom tacos & coconut margarita!
Our waiter Patrick was the best!
Great place for good Mexican food with a cool decor and DJ music.
Such a great vibe at Eldorado Taco! Love the decor and service. Food was phenomenal and my favourite margaritas ever. Thanks!!
Outstanding as usual.
Food = exceptional.
Service = extraordinary.
My favorite place to take guests from out of town.
Tacos are great, good flavour and fresh ingredients (ancho chicken and carne asada). Started off with nachos as a an appetizer - great value and fully loaded. The pineapple spicy marg was a little too sweet for my liking but still a great mix of flavour. Overall great food. The service was on point with multiple check-ins.
Great drinks and food but slooooooow service and the music was way too loud for 7pm
DJ was too loud. Food was good, but slow. Ended up paying $80+ for 5 tacos and two drinks.
My happy place. Don’t change a thing.
Great food- Elote, shrimp/pork belly/ ancho chicken/avocado tacos all very tasty, super good Margarita - and our server Patrick was great - energetic and informative, polite, unique style. we'll be back.
Amazing food!!! But the service takes the icing on the cake!!! Best drinks made by our bartender who knew how to make every drink taste bang on! Friendly service over all and food was super yummy! A MUST visit place when in Ottawa!
We had a great time! Servers were great!
Service was slow, waited 30 min for water and menus
Servers were great and entertaining, food was fab and drinks were really good.
I'll be back!
El Dorado exceeded expectations! Can’t wait to go back!
My partner and I had a great date night at Eldorado Taco. Our booth was cozy and the tacos were tasty! A creative menu and interesting selection of drinks made for a fun and memorable evening.
Very expensive, $15 for plain nachos with avocado, not even salsa or some kind of crema/sour cream, over priced tiny tacos, not even lime on the side to add in, poor service overall in addition to tasty but nowhere near reasonably priced food.
Delicious food! The flavours were very well defined and balanced, nothing overwhelmed anything else in the taco. I especially loved the Tempura Avocado taco. Who knew? Our order taker and servers were excellent, just the right amount of presence. Its a bit loud so not a great place for a quiet date, but for an energetic experience and smashing food, this is a solid choice. My friends and I loved it all.
As usual, the food and service was excellent. We have been a few times and have yet to be disappointed.
Super food, the best most delicious boozy AND non boozy drinks! Fab and super helpful staff 👌🏼
Can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed our dinner. Server Mike was cheerful & friendly, there when we wanted/needed something, but otherwise non-intrusive. Margaritas were excellent, as were the tacos & guac we sampled. My only regret is not being hungrier bc there were more tacos than I could try.
Good overall, portions are a bit small.
Excellent food and excellent service. Highly recommend.
Third time there, did not disappoint. I love that you can choose different kinds of tacos and experiment
It was my daughters 13th bday dinner... we made reservations online and specifically said that it was her bday. We dropped the girls off at the restaurant and told the hostess again that it was my daughters bday and asked for a little dessert with a candle. we came back to pick the girls up and pay the bill. I asked my daughter if she blew out a candle, she said no :/
Other than this little mishap, it was a good choice.
The food is outstanding, the service is great.
But when 4 people pay 200 bucks for some tacos and one round of margaritas, it stings that we can't do this more often
Service was great. The table was set before we even arrived which was a nice added touch.
Food, drinks and service were wonderful!! Would like to see more dessert options offered.
An interesting twist on tacos and Mexican food. All the ingredients were fresh and we especially liked the nachos which were the best we have ever had.
This is my favourite restaurant in Ottawa. I raved about taking my coworkers there for months. I was a little disappointed when I saw that the menu had changed and the prices had increased. The quality and flavour were still there which was a big relief however they were less of the “good stuff” and more filler than they used to be. My coworkers were happy thankfully as it was their first experience. Still looking forward to coming back and giving it another shot. But I really hope the corn comes back with the season because I shed a real tear that it was gone haha.
Service was fast and friendly. When choosing your Taco's they didn't all have to be the same. Had chicken and Steak. They were delicious.
Delicious and great service, have been a few times now and enjoy the tacos and margaritas so much.
All the food we 've had at Ledorado has been outstanding, and we've tried almost everything on the menu. I can't get enough of the corn on the cob. Some kinks in the service still need to be ironed out. On two separate occasions items we ordered were forgotten. It was quickly taken care of but still a little disappointing and surprising.
We'll still be going back do recommend you try Eldorado.
The service was fine as was the ambiance although I found it quite cool inside. The tuna ceviche was as good as any i’ve Eaten even in Latin America however I was a little disappointed with the rest of the food we ordered. The tacos were tasty but not cooked through leaving a lot of the cheese cold and stringy. The beef was also tasty but quantity was very small. The fish taco was good. I think that in time things will improve.
We love this place. The food, the drinks, the service. It’s just the greatest.
Food was fabulous, tons of flavour and very unique taco choices. Unfortunately our server wasn’t aware of most of the items on the menu and left us waiting for drinks, ordering, and bills for up to 30 minutes. Will definitely be back because the food was so good though.
