“Awesome!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

The crispy ribs are amazing! You can also get really yum cocktails in a big chook tea pot. There was a wait to get in but this is obviously because it is so popular. Definately worth the wait. We received great service, very friendly! We were on a short 4 day stay in Melbourne but had to go back twice and can't wait for next time.

“Insane”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

I read the reviews below. They must be tripping. This place is amazing and that is why you must wait an hour to be served.

The attention to detail far surpasses anything else in Melbourne. The service is prompt and efficient. The food is great. Maybe a little small in servings but this just allows you to order many other dishes.

I would recommend this place if you are on a date, or with a group of friends or even when you are alone.

I have never had a complaint about this place even after coming here 6 times. Yes you have to wait but it's total worth the wait. Why would there be a wait if people didn't enjoy it!?? Total awesome

“Mixed Feelings.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

We tried to eat dinner here on a Friday night. As per inner city cool, we could not get in and were put on the waiting list for an hour. Luckily it is right next to Section 8, a great little laneway bar so we ducked in there for a drink or two. After an hour, still no text so we went back and they managed to squeeze us on to the short end of the bar. The food was really tasty but not amazing. You wouldn't come here just for the food. The service from the door and service staff was average, nothing good or bad to report. The overall ambience is good and the layout is awesome, a lot of interesting stuff around. The best part was the cool bartender from Portland who had amazing service. He was chatty and helpful, and really friendly. We even tipped him at the end of the night, which is definitely not normal practice in Australia. Would I go back to Touche Hombre again? Sure, as long as I didn't have to wait to get in.

“It's a Bar, not a Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012 via mobile

Great Bar atmosphere. Fantastic music and ambiance. Food very ordinary. Not the best quality and freshness, most dishes came out half cold/ hot, not great for a Wednesday night.

“Go for the atmosphere and enjoy with friends - but not for great food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

A great place to have a few drinks with friends, and a snack - but if you're after authentic Mexican food this is not the place for you.

A creative menu, but nothing you'll find in your favourite Mexican cantina.

Much happier with the drinks, the ambience, the service and the convenient location.
