We were warmly greeted and given the choice of seating indoors or outdoors. While the inside has a nice vibe, how can you beat the beautiful river view of downtown Westport by sitting outside? We braved the high 50's/low 60's windy conditions and they lit up the outdoor warming devices (the kind with propane and glass tubes) and brought us... More

I have been going to BarTaco for a while now, mostly for lunch with coworkers, and the food and drinks have always been pretty good. The service has been good, with minimal confusion. So when my GF wanted to go out for a quick drink and light bite locally in Westport, I suggested BarTaco. Since she has been to the... More

I was visiting family in Connecticut for the holidays, and stopped here for dinner and drinks with some friends. Bartaco has a great location on the water in Westport, and it was the perfect place to stop after shopping downtown. The margaritas were delicious and strong, although a little expensive. I loved the unique small tacos, and every one we... More

THE FOOD IS INCREDIBLE. I highly recommend the grilled corn and the ribeye rice bowl if you want something other than tacos. I have been several times with co-workers (I work close by) and every time I've sat at a table, the service almost ruins the food. I've sat at the bar a few times and it's a totally different...

I was impressed with how flavorful everything was. The guacamole, chipotle slaw and shrimp ceviche all had a nice "kick" to them. The fried oyster taco was exceptional. I could eat those every day. Great food and atmosphere too!

A fun and very popular spot in Westport. Been here several times and the margaritas keep me and my husband coming back - delicious and strong. Menu is fun and as creative as casual Mexican can be. The grilled corn, gauc, and steak rice bowl are my favs. There's just something about the steak sauce that is rather addicting! Interior... More

Westport so needed a restaurant like this. Its popularity is evident by the long lines that form there on weekends. The food is pretty simple - your basic taco fare - but it is extremely well priced. Combine that with great service, beautiful views of the Saugatuck river and killer cocktails (try the Portchester - yum!) and you have everything... More

This is a great spot to have a drink on the patio on a nice day. The guacamole is quite good. The tacos which are ordered on a sushi like paper order form are ok. Certainly not traditional fillings with pork belly. However, sometimes traditional works best. Better for a group looking for some apps. Not impressed and not running... More
