Very very good food and service. Meals are well priced and authentic. Only problem was that the meal felt a little small. We will be back!

Honestly we were not sure what we were letting ourselves get into because we had a 13 year old and it looked like a bit more of a bar than a restaurant. However it is very hard to find tasty mexican food with real shredded chicken and beef used, the word Cantina on the wall made me know that they had done their research into Mexican food. WOW awesome, the food is not exactly set out like Mexican in looks but oh my gosh the taste is there and I am fussy They have used the real Mexican spices in the food and also the sauces were imported from Mexico. They were very friendly, obliging and nothing was a problem at all, the price was amazing for what you were given to eat and honestly to find a fault would be being overly picky. I am spoiled now, I will only be eating there when in Taupo because I just loved it sooooo much. I wanted to drive from Turangi back to Taupo the next night just to try something else.

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.
