What else do you want in a restaurant? Very tasty Guatemalan food. Nothing fancy about Taco Pica but you can get a good meal at a decent price. Bright and happy place!!! Will be back again soon.

We had the veggie nachos, a veggie taco, and the taco al pastor (pork). The taco al pastor was one of the best dishes I've ever had. There was a really nice ambience, and decorations. The place filled up fast, but the service was still excellent. There was a great acoustic guitar player too.

Taco Pica is a smaller venue. The decor is bright and cheery. Santos, your waiter is very friendly and hospitable, and provides very good service. The food is delicious, and definitely not over priced. Some evenings there is live entertainment, which adds fun to the atmosphere. A place worthy of going back to.

I've enjoyed the offerings of Taco Pica at the City Market many times but sitting down at the restaurant was a true authentic experince. It felt as if I was back in Latin America and I loved every minute of it. I enjoyed the stew which was featured on "You Gotta Eat Here" and it was so good...and hot! If... More

Love the colour, staff, energy, food and drink at the pica. While the sangria is strong, it is good- especially when santos makes it! The chicken quesadillas and wedges (order extra spices) are worth the drive from far away. The snakebites are always a win as an app, and the deep-fried cheesecake finishes off the meal. check out this fun... More

We walk in, the owner is cranking the salsa music, dancing around. The atmosphere was electric and the food was phenomenal! We've already been back....trust me get the Floutas!

Best place to bring a group of friends for some tasty eats and DELICIOUS Sangrias! Service is always super friendly and there is usually some live music on Friday or Saturday evenings. Food is very good, but not blow your socks off or anything. Best nachos in the city though! Recommend it to anyone who loves a candle-lit dining experience... More

My daughter and I popped in for an early dinner just before 5, thinking we would be in and out quickly. Surprise! There was a party of about a dozen people and I think our timing was unfortunate enough that they had all just ordered their food when we arrived. Still, that's not the restaurant's fault, and if we had... More

I got the Shellfish and Greensauce seafood platter and it was AHMAZING! I've had it recommended to me by a friend who has been going to Taco Pica for years and I finally got around to trying it. We aren't in Saint John that often and I'm glad we tried it. The service was a bit slow but my wife... More

I've been here for others things like live music and dancing, and that was great. Only ate here once and it was way too overpriced and not that great, meaning I could have made better at home.
