Busy, loud and expensive The food is good and the venue really but not worth a second visit The menus really vary from one venue to the other so have a look before choosing which one to go to

The atmosphere was great, specially the staff. Food was also good too, maybe not the most generous portions but good enough!

We just happened upon this place on a busy Friday night in the area while looking for places open late and it was an amazing find. I wasn't sold on Mexican food in London, but seriously, it was to die for. The service was a bit spotty, but I suspect because it was so busy and even knowing that, I... More

We went few times to Botega as we like the atmosphere, great music, nice ambience and cool decor! Apart from it the food quality is very low for what you pay and would not recommend it if you want to eat Mexican food!

A little tough to find down the streets of Soho and you enter through what looks like an adult shop front door before heading downstairs. It is dark and atmospheric downstairs and fairly cozy but the food is amazing. Drinks were good too with a large selection of tequilas + Mezcal if you so wish. Definitely recommend booking a good...

My daugter and I visited this restaurant prior to attending a show in the west end. We were somewhat disappointed with the tiniest portions received and then to add to this their was an additional tip added in excess of 10%. Will most definitely not dine again at this restaurant

We decided to visit this place as a celebratory meal for my girlfriends birthday. Her friends had planned it and it was a surprise for me until I actually arrived. The outside was humorous (strip club store front) and when led inside, it was quite cool and quirky. We sat down ready for the meal and found that the music... More

I admit, I was a novice prior to this visit (well, still am really). However, my partner and I had an amazing time! The staff is friendly, relaxed and very helpful! (Which makes you relaxed). Our waiter explained the items on the menu and made some suggestions, that we pretty much followed. We had some home made nachos with guacamole,... More

Had an amazing night there. The restaurant is actually underground and entrance hides a suprise underneath which i m not spoiling. Beatiful people and good music. Food is good, tex mex based, but you dont go there thinking of it too much. Pricey but fair due to the level of the locations. Reccomended
