There are Mexican restaurants and then there is La Taqueria in Belfast. This is not your standard over-guacamoled Tex-Mex fare, at this secluded Castle Street haunt in the centre of Belfast, these are real Mexican tacos made with actual Mexican corn. This restaurant is decked out in the style of a Mexican comida – no plastic sombreros in sight – and as well as tacos, also offers quesadillas, tortas and ceviche of the day. Oh, and the bar is authentic Mexican, too, with margaritas, mezcales, tequilas and Mexican beers doing the rounds nicely. Do yourself a very tasty favour and reserve a table at this Belfast gem today.
Belfast’s La Taqueria is a Mexican restaurant you’re certain to fall in love with. From burritos and tacos to quesadillas, margaritas and enchiladas, this city centre hotspot is changing up boring dining routines for the better. Whether you like your food mild, spicy, sweet or sour, La Taqueria on Castle Street has what you’re after. There’s just the right mix of Tex-Mex and authentic Mexican fare, meaning you’ll see plenty of familiar options alongside lesser-known regional dishes.
La Taqueria’s menu begins with entradas to share – think ceviche, guacamole and chips – before leading you to a range of main courses like quesadillas packed with meat and vegetables, tacos stuffed with chorizo, carnitas (crispy confit pork) and bistec con queso (tender steak with melted cheese). But if you think the food is good just you wait until you taste the drinks – their margaritas are among some of the best in Belfast. La Taqueria’s signature Spicy Paloma is a must-try drink featuring Jalapeno-infused tequila, grapefruit, soda and lime, but there are plenty of other choices for guests with milder palates. Don’t wait around and miss out, though. Make sure you book your table ahead of time when planning a visit at La Taqueria in Belfast city centre!
Nice relaxing setting, warm welcome on arrival and food was great. Staff well drilled on menu and made great recommendations on both food and drinks
Very fun friendly and delicious! Unique authentic food and great cocktails. Feels intimidate but also relaxed. Staff are always attentive helpful and very good fun.
Love this place :-) really tasty food and friendly service. Got the beef tacos which are melt in your mouth and so tasty ❤️ ❤️
Fantastic food with a wonderfully friendly and efficient service. My favourite place to eat in Belfast. The mexican firing squad is the cocktail of choice!
Had guacamole and blue corn tortilla chips to start, and thought the guacamole was under-seasoned and a bit bland. Mains however were absolutely fantastic, we had pulled pork tacos which were so juicy and full of flavour, green chorizo quesadillas which again were delicious and a side of potatoes with salsa and sour cream. Overall great meal, just disappointed with the guac. Will definitely be going again.
Had a great experience at La Taqueria, I am Mexican and I am happy we have such a nice representation of Mexican food in Belfast. Great food, great cocktails, great service. :D
Great, authentic Mexican food. Knowledgable and friendly staff. No fuss, good clean eating. If you haven't tried this place yet or Mexican food then give it a go for a great experience.
Great meal but potion sizes a bit on the small side for some of our party Service was great and a good choice of Mexican beers we will be back
We had arrived early and the waiter accommodated us. Great food selection and very reasonably priced! The guacamole is incredible and I had the Queso Fundido as a main which was also superb! Definitely will be back. Love the ease of booking online!!
delicious guacamole, great service and a cool decor. The prices won't break the bank either. Belfast's best Mexican restaurant by far. I'm becoming a regular.
