    Went for dinner after work with friends. The place had only 1 other table other than us to service. We had to ask waitress to take our food order, during our dinner no one came to ask if we needed additional drinks. We also had to go up to the bar for our bill.. Food was very tasty decor lovely, place has lots of potential though service let them down as we would have spent much more if we were serviced.

    Best Mexican in Glasgow! This was my second visit to Viva La Choza and it didn’t disappoint! We ordered two types of tacos and guacamole to share. The flavours are outstanding and the margarita was excellent. Everything was so fresh and tasty. Can’t wait to come back!

    Great food the service wasn’t great though waited ages for drinks orders, only 3 tables in but took ages to be served staff were busy chatting and on their phones. Had to ask for side plates which should be put down anyway as it is tapas style. The food was excellent but with better service the experience would have been better

    I'm gutted to be giving a poor review as I thought this was going to be a great wee find that I was excited about. More of a cafe than a restaurant with tapas style sharing platters. Very strange tasting tacos ( almost floral) can't really identify the taste but not enjoyable at all. We ordered several of the Tacos & Comida Callejera & out of every dish I'd say the cauliflower Comida Callejera was the most tasty, the ribs would have been amazing if there had been a better meat to bone ration. Every dish was freshly prepared but nothing really tasty enough to want me to return. Bring back the chimichanga!!

    The tacos need to be crispy, the were alittle soggy and the fillings just fell out. The menus were dirty, covered in food and so off putting to look at. When it came to paying, we asked to split the bill and the girl just about lost her mind telling us she couldn't do that as she couldn't work out £72 halved. It was uncomfortable and ridiculous.

    Food was dry. Every taco type our table ordered was the same. The soft shell tacos were so dry they were crumbly. Meat was dry and has to be doused in hot sauce. We ordered guac & chips to start. Ratio was way off, with way too much guacamole for the qty of chips. We had to order more. The guacamole was lacking texture and it was clearly either from a jar or put through a blender - shame because the flavour was nice. Pricey for the quality.

    Cocktails were really good and different choices to your standard. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Loved the appearance of the restaurant and it had a cool atmosphere. Food portions were slightly too small. Menu could have more description of dish. For example halloumi was in the list of a 3 ingredient dish so I expected more than halloumi shavings. The tacos were tasty.

    Unfortunately food did not meet our expectations - flat, tasteless, not something you would expect from a self-pronounced Mexican restaurant. They need to revisit their cooking if they are to last in the emerging competitive food scene

    Not good food. Tacos were floppy, fillings lacked seasoning/flavour and every taco was filled with lettuce that had seen its best days. Corn was two tiny ends. A bland and disappointing meal.

    The food was tasty but tiny portions for the price so not good value for money. The Margarita was served in a small glass, no bigger than a standard whisky glass. The nachos were extremely crispy, and over cooked.

    Purely personal taste but I really didn’t like the tacos, all down to the flour but my other half liked them. The fillings were lovely. What was outstanding was the service. Both were super friendly without being in your face.

    Had great service all night and staff were very accommodating of dietary needs. The whole menu is gluten free and anything can be adjusted to make it dairy free which is a godsend! Cocktail menu was super impressive as well, would be a perfect place for a couple drinks and some tacos!

    Staff were lovely but couldn't help feeling a little let down by the hype! It was quite expensive for what you get and the tacos lacked a bit of flavour. Also the tacos just seemed to fall apart as the bottom of the tortilla got soggy so you had to eat them with a knife and fork. It was good just not totally worth the money, would go again if they reconsidered their pricing. Drinks and the guac were probably the best thing.

    Hipster staff vibe - the one where you’re not welcome if you’re not a hipster. Food was decent quality, cooked well etc but so bland and unflavoured. Music was far too loud. Overpriced for how small the portions were. Won’t be back.
