“Amazing dinner!”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

I read other reviews of the little street-side Tacun restaurant and we decided to give it a try. The place is tiny, with only 6 or 8 tables, but the service was impeccable and dinner was absolutely incredible. I have prepared and served meals for an elite crowd many times and I was just blown away by what these guys can do. To begin with the guacamole was excellent and the margaritas delicious, Then we got the special of the day, which proved to be huge platters of combination seafood, including lobster, jumbo shrimp, a filet of fish that just melted in our mouths, mixed vegetable grill and baked potato. Topping all of that, we finished the meal with flan that had a chocolate cake base and a rich chocolate sauce drizzled over the whole thing. It was heavenly! Needless to say, we could not begin to eat all of it and took big to-go containers back to the hotel. The biggest problem with Tacun is in deciding what to choose to eat! I can see that it would take multiple visits to finally decide on a favorite meal. The food is truly superb. Go early or call for a reservation, since it fills up fast.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

We tried this as our first real taste of authentic Mexican food and it did not disappoint. The waiter was helpful in picking out something for both of us and the chips, salsa, and fresh guacamole was amazing!

“Super little hole-in-the-wall restaurant in the Zone”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

LOVE IT!

The food in our hotel - the NYX - is so mediocre we decided to try this little place we'd walked past many times. It's such a great little find - the food is amazing - fresh, made with care, served with love. Have been back every day since. Great value, great service, great find.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Super close to the Flamingo hotel and great food. Waiters were nice and the Mango Margherita rocked. Highly recommend this place. Very reasonably priced too.

“Small but wonderful”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

I'd give this 5 stars but my wife thought the food was a little too hot. It did have a little more heat than other Mexican restaurants. Only 10 tables, but worth the wait if you have to. A great value too.
