Taco Pica had great service. After arriving late in the evening without a reservation with a large group the server was happy to accommodate us outside and provided prompt and friendly service. A wide-range of appetizers and meals were ordered to try a variety of Mexican/Guatemalan dishes. However, I must stress this is more so Guatemalan that it is Mexican.... More

We went for an evening with a clip,e friends and it was a long slow process due to the number of people there and only 2 servers. The food was very good though.

This quaint restaurant with superb reviews and very friendly inefficient staff serves some of the blandest food available in the port city. The starters and main courses were utterly disappointing. The saving grace was the live music act. From a pure cuisine perspective, Taco Bell will offer you better.

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
