Taco Taco is a Mexican restaurant which is such a friendly place that anyone can enjoy superb food at very reasonable price. You will be addicted to its food. Lake Taupo has only one Taco Taco. They should open the chain stores through out the country.Loved the place.

In a word...Delicioso.

After a google search, the recently opened Taco Taco Cantina and Bar was our family's unanimous choice for a Friday night meal while on holiday in Taupo. When we cruised past looking for a park, it did initially look a bit too much of a Bar Scene to take our 11 year old to, but once we arrived at the open doors we could see it was fine for families. Taco Taco is located in an avenue of restaurants in the town centre, with heaps of parking and within easy walking distance from the lake.

The whole restaurant had a hip and cool atmosphere. The decor was a modern take on Mexican style, plenty of Beautiful People staff who welcoming, friendly and took our orders without writing them down, AND actually got them right too! The restrooms were (according to my boys) " awesome".

Pretty good range of drinks,beers ($8), tequila based cocktails($15) and a very nice alcoholic slushy of the day for $9. They had Jarritos soft drinks for kids too

The food was very reasonably priced, $16 for a main meal of your selection ie taco/burrito/enchilada/quesadilla in either beef, chicken, pork etc. The flavours were lovely as the meats had been marinated in authentic Mexican spices (Not your average kiwi Tex Mex flavours)

We had a great time and we would go back in a heartbeat next time we visit Taupo.
