We grabbed a Wednesday night dinner here. It was a bit difficult to find, but TripAdvisor showed us the way (down the side laneway and up the stairs). We loved the setting. Order at the bar, so easy to split bills. We shared a nachos with pork. Very yummy. The pork was so tender.

Visited Eastland in Ringwood . Yummy fresh tasting tacos. Barramundi taco had a very generous piece of fish in it and was very tasty. Can end up being quite a costly meal as tacos are $6 each. Nice decor with a mexican theme, friendly attentive staff.

Came here a few months ago at the Eastland branch with a mate and we wanted to try something different for a change. Ordered a few alcoholic beverages and some Tacos; for the money... hmm... no sorry. But it was lacking a great deal, didn't exactly know what we were paying for, as the food was crap.

The place is tucked away, like most people have stated and if my friend hadn't taken me there, I would never have found it. The Taco's themselves are small and tasty, however are pricey around $6.00 each. If you're hungry, this probably isn't a place you can fill up on a budget. The place itself is quite quaint and reminded... More

Tucked away off behind William and Bourke. At $6.50 a taco - and they're pretty small - it's not the place to load up as a cheap eat, but the tacos are nice. They've got sone varied flavours and package them nicely, eat in or take away. Some good outdoor and undercover seating and set back off the road so... More

You get what you pay for and this place is no exception. The food is very quick and nice small serves but if you are with a family, it certainly adds up in price. We definitely will be back as the quality was excellent. Service was ok.

Was here again just the other day and have many times before. Paco's Tacos are consistent in their tacos offering - always fresh and delicious. I love the way they serve them in the little baskets and are washed down well with a lovely cool beer. Do suggest get here on opening as it gets full quite quickly and if... More

This was difficult to find but very well worth it. Staff were ultra nice especially the bloke with the big beard who I chatted with - the Instant Buddy type. Also the girl serving with the tats, just lovely people. Food was really nice and not too much. Beard-guy recommended two tacos was enough and that was perfect, and very... More

I love this place so much!!! Great for lunch, dinner and snacks. A great cheap eat and everything on the menu is delicious! The barramundi taco is so delicious. In fact, all the taco's are delicious, you really cannot go wrong. Perfect place for after work drinks and food.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
