    I really like the atmosphere here and their tacos are really tasty 👌🏼 you just might need to stand in line a bit to get a table here.

    This place has some of the coolest decor you have ever seen. One of the greatest cocktail and tequila bars and a killer patio. Fun Mexican eats. Must try the tuna tostadas, grab a hot sauce

    My wife and I loved this place. One of the best authentic Mexican restaurants in Toronto. The hand made guacamole at the table was terrific. Thoroughly enjoyed the food, drink and ambiance

    Ensalade destelleria and baja tacos were excellent! Beef cheeks were bland. I liked the sauce in crab fritters. Got recommended Okanagan Spring pale ale beer which I loved. Service was two thumbs up👍

    Very cute vibes! Would recommend - I had a cauliflower bowl dish which was great and so was the guac. Seems like they had extensive meat options on their menu that looked great as well

    Bring a serious appetite and go for the 7 course tasting menu. Features compressed watermelon, guacamole, fish tacos and churros (pic) to name a few standouts. The Mayan margarita is amaze balls!!

    Churros are always a good option hahahaha ... Mexican gourmet food, do not expect a regular taco( only mexicans will understand) , the experience was amazing and the food was so yummi 🤘

    Their guac is great, delicious and seasoned just right. For dinner we shared the cod and pork tacos. The cod was excellent, very crispy and tasty. The pulled pork was nice, but not as much add the cod

    The interior of this place blows is beautiful and lively. If you come here during the Toronto Christmas Market they'll have outdoor seating with a fire and warm heating! An experience to remember.

    Beautiful place, it's the only fancy patio here (i think). However, it is a tapas bar, so don't expect large portions. It's pricey, but the beef cheek is totally worth it.

    Located in the heart of the Distillery District, El Catrin will offer you not only an amazing atmosphere & experience, the food is what will keep you coming bac for more. Small sharing plates.

    I'm originally from Mexico and I can say that the food here is really good. It's gourmet mexican food. Good taste, margaritas are great and the prices are great 👌 The service was impecable!

    Very cool Mexican with a great vibe. A perfect place to enjoy a sunny day on the patio. Pulled pork tacos + margarita will bring a piece of Oaxaca to Downtown Toronto.

    Great cochinita tacos, esquites really small and expensive. My bigger complain, as every single "mexican"place; the tortillas, horrible white tortillas. Use authentic corn yellow tortillas please!!!

    The best Mexican in Toronto that also boasts an incredible patio inside the Distillery District. While the whole menu is great, make sure you order the table made guacamole to start.

    Some is the best Mexican food in the city and if you go during the Christmas Market, you get line bypass and free entry to the market!

    Fun summer vibe. I tried it on a sunny July day and found the guacamole ok but not great. The tacos and sandwiches were very good. Service was solid. And the restaurant is nicely designed.

    decor is great, as is the lobster salad. the ahi tuna tostada was under-seasoned. the beef short ribs were dry/over-cooked, but the accompanying sweet potato purée and sugar snap peas were good.

    Baja fish tacos were GREAT. Octopus taco was disappointing. Guacamole was fresh as usual. Mulled wine was great especially since we were eating outside in winter =)

    Gobernador tacos are delicious, especially if you like seafood. Guacamole is also very good, but it comes in small quantities. Very good in general.

    Cochinita Pibil tacos and the Burra (Chicken quesadilla) are good. Chips and guac are nice as well. Portions are on the smaller size. Overall good place but bit overrated.

    Small portions and a smidge over priced. My server was absolutely wonderful - advised us on foods and a type of cocktail I otherwise wouldn't know I now like. The interior and patio = WOW. 👍👍
