“Great food; funky decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

This is a great spot. The food was well presented, tasty, zesty and filling. He staff were busy, but remained friendly and attentive. The surroundings are friendly and homey. The restaurant is small - and busy. Reservations are advised.

“Service great, Food a bit disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Went to Planeta for lunch. Fun atmosphere and decor. The service was great - very welcoming. We ordered the burritos and tacos and they were well presented. The downside was that everyone at my table found the flavors a bit bland. We were hoping for spicy or rich flavors, but the food fell flat. We did ask for additional sauces to liven it up and that helped. We will likely give it another try to see if it was just an off day.

“Authentic Mexican Food in Unionville!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

Great food quality and lovely service. The menu needs to be updated a bit, photocopies are cost effective but seem a bit cheap. We like the old house charm and mis matched cutlery. We will be back in the summer.

“Very tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

First time at this restaurant. We went early on Sunday and it was quite full, there was a constant stream of people thru the evening. Had guac and chips, which were good (need a little heat though). The sopes starter with chorizo was not so good, the corn fritters at the base were difficult to cut and eat, they need to either take this item off the menu or improve it. Chimichanga with pastor was very flavour full. They give sauces on the side which are fantastic and properly hot and delicious. Not many no-carb/low carb options, just one dish of chicken breast with mole sauce. They should expand the menu and add a steak and a fish option for those that do not want carbs. All in all, pretty good for the prices. And ofcourse Margaritas were tasty, need a little more tequila though.
