After living two years in Mexico and being married to a Mexican, this is very authentic food. Delicious and not ridiculously expensive. The service was great too. We will be regulars here!! Well done to the owners for bringing the real Mexico to Australia.

Delicious food. Very comfortable atmosphere. Lovely service. The only thing that wasn't well above average here was the price. It was surprisingly cheap. My partner and I could have filled ourselves with beautiful food for less than $50. As with any other restaurant the drinks...More

Hidden away in plain sight this is a really good Mexican restaurant that avoids the cliches. Staff know what they are advising. Service was fast even on a busier than usual Tuesday. The chef is highly credentialed and there seems to be a group of...More

This is the best Mexican in Melbourne. The food is really amazing and the tortillas are the best I've had. They also have mole! The staff are super friendly and it just has a great vibe.

We have been looking at this restaurant for a long time but always we opted for the Italian neighbours. This week we tried El Sabor. The food was delicious, the staff attentive and able to guide choice. We shared fajitas, and then a burnt flan....More

OMG.... This was a great place to be on a cold Melbourne night - great food, great service and great place. The design of El Sabor is Mexican with class - no chain theme tackiness here (thankfully!). I love the brilliant colours. But I digress,...More
