La Taqueria - Ormeau Road
Food lovely especially the fish tacos but watch out for the service charge which is already included even for small tables. Drinks were expensive.
Loved everything about this place, the flavours were amazing and service friendly and prompt..loved it, definitely be back!
Brilliant authentic tacos and Mexican food. Great cocktails. Quite loud in the restaurant as it was full so not easy to heat our conversation but didn’t detract from TNE meal
Great vegan food but a little over priced. 10% automatically added to bill although they did point out that we didn’t have to pay it.
interesting mix of loud/noisy atmosphere, muted flavor palette and small portion. actually enjoyed the papita's most which I don't think reflects on the main dishes well. Also out of Fish Taco's which are probably 90% of folks reason for going
First time, not sure what to choose, picked a selection but felt it all tasted the same.
Music was good when I could hear it as it was quite noisy.
Would give it another go.
We have been to La Taqueria twice and really enjoyed it both times. We enjoy sharing food so this is right up our street, especially when the food is delicious and a bit different. We had a fish tacos, pork and pineapple tacos from the specials menu and a beef quaesidilla all of which we shared between two of us (there are 3 tacos in a portion). The staff were helpful, friendly and attentive and the restaurant has a good buzz - our only slight niggle was that the music was a bit loud for us two oldies! What we got was reasonably priced including the drinks so all in all a great experience. Will definitely go back soon and would highly recommend.
The food was gorgeous, authentic Mexican! Also the margarita I had was delicious. The service was excellent, and there was a relaxed atmosphere. I will definitely be back and will recommend to friends!
Have been here a few times without being disappointed- great to have a Mexican restaurant in the locality
Why is a ‘discretionary’ charge of 10% being added to tables with only 2 people? The food was ok. Guacamole very tasty but not worth £10. The service was just ok but due to this charge being forced on us we will not return.
A Mexican friend recommended this restaurant highly. And we were not disappointed. Not super impressed with the Margarita, but all the food was very good. Authentic and tasty, fresh and filling. Good atmosphere, edgy, almost “street food-like” if somewhat noisy - possibly the type of speakers. But we WILL all be back soon, including the two hungry teenagers. In fact it will probably be a go to family dinner venue.
If you do not like coriander or Mexican or noise, go somewhere else. We reckon these guys are doing a very good job and we all recommend La Taqueria highly.
The till area is too small for standing, paying at the table would seem to be a simple adjustment to make. Just a small thing, but maybe one that should be considered, if it is feasible. Restroom is very good and is accessible.
Lovely place, lovely staff, lovely food, lovely atmosphere.
Food was excellent like being transported to a Mexican cantina . Staff were relaxed and passionate about the product . Was a little pricey but worth it . Would I go again Oooh yes
Bit annoying you can only book a table for two hours. Felt a bit rushed at the end. Service charge a bit much. But staff were lovely and helpful and attentive. And food was very nice. Thanks for a nice evening.
have been to the castle street restaurant which has a cosy and cute atmosphere, the ormeau branch is quite open and cold and there is nothing to block the wind from outside from coming right in. food was also not as good this time, seemed far more bland than my trip to the castle street branch
Music too loud - we were told it could not be turned down! On discovering there was only filter coffee we refused and were told "You can just pay your bill on your way out." Rude!
Beautiful food and lovely service from staff, definitely recommend.
We were still hungry when we left after having 2 courses!
I had the vegetarian quesadilla however it was so spicy I couldn’t eat one bite. My partner struggled to finish it because it was too spicy so no taste whatsoever.
Excellent food explained in detail before choosing. Joe and the other staff were friendly, very welcoming and totally professional.
A thoroughly relaxed and enjoyable experience....can’t wait for another visit!!
BEST excellent REAL Mexican food ever. Superb playlist, vibrant ambiance.
Taco Tuesday, was great, fresh tasty, flavours were just so clean. We tried 4 lots of Tacos, all fantastic, had some sides, papitos with chorizo a big 👍, refried beans possibly less do, but overall, definitely go there, best Mexican good Belfast has ever had.
Incredible flavours in the main dishes! Wouldn’t go for the desert again...
Excellent food.fresh and tasty
It was just amazing, the food, the atmosphere and the staff. We had such an amazing time and a great experience and can’t wait to do it all again .
Excellent food, serviceand atmosphere. Can't wait to return.
I enjoyed castle street more but Ormeau was still nice. The staff are very courteous and down to earth has a real relaxed vibe. Food was great and cocktails are lethal, only recommendation would be offer the same items in both restaurants. Check it out you wont be disappointed!
Food was amazing, staff great, service spot on. Joe and his crew run a gem of a place.
La Taqueria is the best! I've been a regular customer since they opened and I recommend it to everyone I know!
Completely flawless! The flavours, the presentation, the quality of the food, everything was just perfect!
Overall really good. The food and service is excellent with really attentive and friendly staff. The only negative I would say is the price of the guacamole starter. At £10 for two it’s a hit steep for a very simple and cheap dish to prepare especially when most main courses are in and around the £10 mark. That said I would thoroughly recommend the place and the food. I look forward to my next time.
In a nutshell - too much coriander, stingy portions, bland black bean mash, greasy beef.
Had the most amazing margaritas that I have ever tasted, the food was also delicious, will definitely be visiting again.
First experience was not good. Was persuaded to come back and really enjoyed it. Lovely young chef
Enjoyed the evening and thought staff good. It’s got a good buzz about it. I was disappointed in food. Found the ceviche not as fresh as it should be and wasn’t a fan of the fish deep fried in taco. Personally I prefer guacamole or ceviche to be served with tortilla separately as I like to adjust the ratio of crispy stuff to guacamole/ceviche. Eating it was difficult but guacamole was great.
Drinks were great and I would go back but would order differently.
Great spot though!!!
Really excellent food and service.
The restaurant was a little cramped and loud, however this would not put me off going again in the near future!
Awesome. Food great, Atmosphere good, Margaritas lethal!
My family and I visited the restaurant recently and found the food lacking in taste and spice. Overall, it was a disappointing experience and not value for money. Boojum is actually a tastier alternative.
Fab food! Fab drinks! Fab atmosphere! New favourite spot!
Service was a bit slow but food was really great. Overall very satisfied.
