“Great Comfort Food”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Probably the best Mexican food with full bar service in Cape Coral. Been here three times. Very friendly wait staff. The chicken stuffed Chile Rellenos and the Colorado Chile (pieces of beef in a smoky red chile sauce) are very good though they could use a bit more heat for our taste. When we asked, they brought us some hotter salsa which did the trick. The salsa and chips are better than average.The only thing I hope they upgrade is their Margarita selection. Not much to choose from. They use a standard premix then add tequila. Something with fresh lime juice and Cointreau with a better standard tequila would be much better. Also expand on the tequila choices and maybe add a "flight" or two. Overall, very friendly and accommodating place with above average menu. A very welcome addition to the cape even if it is way up on Pine Island Rd just east of Chiquita.

“Great Food & Service”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

The name of this new restaurant is El Tarasco. You omitted the El in the name. We have been here twice and loved it both times, and will definitely be going back many times. We really like Mexican food, and this is the best we have found in Cape Coral at a very reasonable price. They were very good to allow us to substitute on our order, and the server was so friendly and helpful. It is new and very clean. I certainly hope they get lots of patrons and are very successful!!
