This place is recommended as a great meeting place, cold beer and the best fish tacos in Samara. On the down side, the service is abysmal.

Definitly not worth the money, and the bill was incorrect twice. We didnt even wanted to finish our game of pingpong. Very unsatisfying

This was a fun place to go after the hotel entertainment ended. Cold beer, good food and lots of locals. We went on salsa night and were given some lessons by them. Lots of fun with a pool table, darts, fusball, and pingpong.

We came with our wedding party to Samara (60+ people), Flying Taco was a frequent food and drink stop! We all had a blast and the staff was super friendly and attentive. One of our favorite places throughout the week!

We are glad they have good music and some nights they have a live band as well as a DJ too. There is a good mix of travellers as well as locals.

We really enjoyed our lunch there. It was nice sitting on the terrace with a cool and fruity beverage and good music. The woman serving us was really gentle and kind. Not sure what evenings are like.

Very tasty food. Loved the chicken mole and the wide variety of salsas. Also enjoyed the tortilla snickers dessert. Very quiet on the night we were there but we heard it can be a fun place to hit to see entertainment.
