The food was excellent, the service was above and beyond and the tequila was great. Everyone did their best to accommodate my allergies, but I have to say the fellow named Nana (spelling?) went above and beyond. I carry around a list that describes my allergies to make it easier for people, he asked if he could keep a copy... More

I have eaten at Tres Carnales several times since moving to Edmonton a year and a half ago and I have had an incredible experience every time. The food is delicious, delicate and decadent. Exquisite flavours in the special menu items as well as the regular ones. The staff are welcoming and happy and the sangria and tequila are too... More

This is a hip and happening little restaurant! Lined up out the door the lunch hour we visited. Quick order time/delivery to table. The tacos are the BEST-tried the fish, pork and chicken. So delicious. The corn tortillas are fresh and full. Guac and salsa are both tasty. Casual spot, fun music and atmosphere and friendly service.

Given the small space, this spot can be tough to get into. But the food and atmosphere are worth it. Fish tacos, sangria and their specials keep me coming back. Decor is quirky (good) and the open window bar to the street give it a very metropolitan vibe. A must try.

We ate at Tres Carnales during a recent family vacation to Edmonton. We love Mexican food and this was some of the best Mexican we have ever had. It actually reminded me of some of the good meals I had while in Mexico. Yes, you're going to probably have to wait in a line to get in but it is... More

Pacific red snapper fish tacos, breaded with delicate coating and served in, really on, a quartet of perfectly airy, un-salty taco shells, and laced with delicious, un-hot sauces and love. Pig out? Try Alberta pork shoulder, called Carnitas, crispy fried in its own fat, and served with salsa aguacatillo. Getting thirsty? Try Mexican pop and beer (no Canadjun juice, alcohol,... More

My wife and I enjoyed a great lunch and super service in this authentic Mexican restaurant. Albeit small in size, the food is big in flavour. The pescado tacos of crisp red snapper had lots of fish and ample size. My wife enjoyed the chorizo and pork quesadilla. We had a side of chips and guacamole, roasted corn and washed... More

My daughter has a severe dairy allergy and they were VERY accommodating by letting us know which sauces/dishes had dairy in them. Very friendly, it was our first time there and they really explained the menu well to us. Food was amazing! Fish tacos were the best! Definitely the best Mexican food in Edmonton!

I was super shocked to see some negative reviews of this place, as we still call it one of the best meals we had during our two week vacation in Alberta & BC! We ordered some chicken tacos & guac with chips and a couple Dos Equis. We sat out on the patio and people watched while we ate. The... More

I wanted to hate it because of the hipster affectations, but the food is just too damn good and the service is usually great. It's also just a whole lotta fun. A good time place to go with friends who actually care about food.
