The perfect modern twist on traditional Mexican cuisine paired with high quality ingredients. My GF raved about her Fish Tacos, personally I found the Al Pastor Tacos to die for. If I were to gripe: The chips are not homemade, which is a bit of a downer given how much effort seems to go into the tacos. The guacamole could use a bit more zing and the refried beans are not traditional, they taste like a pimped out can of chili kidney beans from the shop, but very yummy nonetheless. All in all not perfect, but close enough!

We really enjoyed our lunch stop at El Burro Taqueria. The decor is fun and bright, and it was nice and cool on a very hot day. We had a tequila cocktail which was very tasty and refreshing, and shared several different tacos which were all fantastic. The service was good too. Great value.

Well being from Southern California on the border with Mexico we tend to know a few things about Mexican Food. I can say that what they call refried beans are NOT refried beans. Secondly, their tortilla chips are what you would find at with a cheap amusement park meal in the USA.

That aside, the bean dip was tasty as was the guacamole. As far as the tacos go, we tried the chicken, fish, and steak tacos. The tortillas were good as was the flavoring on the meats. The size of the tacos was decent as well.

We were there on a Saturday night and it was very busy and extremely loud.

All in all El Burro is not authentic Mexican food by So Cal standards but the food quality, taste, and portion sizes were all very good. If you want a change from the normal in Cape Town give El Burro a try.

Friends had dinner here and we all enjoyed it. The food is delicious and fairly priced. It's a high energy place that appeals to a young crowd. But everyone is welcomed. The chicken taco is great and the churros are sweet and yummy. Give the place a try, you will not be disappointed.

As this is a tapas type place my husband and I ordered a few dishes and shared. Even though neither of us are vegetarians we both thought the veg Quesadilla with goats cheese was our favourite but all the dishes were yummo. The service was quick and friendly. Thumbs up from a couple of aussies!
