I visited this place twice in my last visit to Guatemala. The food was really great, but I is not first quality. The service was amazing, the waitress was really kind. It is a good option for a Mexican wish.

We had just arrived from the U.S. and looking for a place to eat near our hotel. We stopped in and got one of the mixed plates for 4 of us and devoured it. It was very good. It is a place we ended up going back with a different group for lunch. Have to say really enjoyed it.

Authentic Mexican food, everything was fresh and delicious. Margaritas were to die for! This place will be worth your while to check out.

After living in Mexico for 10 years, I am always a sucker for pretty much anything wrapped in a tortilla. Tacontento really do a pretty good job to deliver. I really enjoy their soups, their tacos. Pretty much anything I've tried is pretty nice and tasty. Staff are attentive and polite. Prices are reasonable. I've been with friends and on... More

This place is a hidden gem. The food is fantastic from the tacos to the drinks and desserts. It is right across the corner from the intercontinental hotel so very safe and welcoming environment. So this place is great if you want a very flavorful meal at great value. It is very clean and the people are so nice. Will... More

This is the most wonderful place to have a meal. There are 3 restaurants that I am aware of in the City. I have eaten at 2 of them and the meal was fantastic! When we go we usually have one of their platters for multiple persons. The platter provides the fixin's to make your own tacos at the table.... More

The nacho appetizer is a work of art and cheap. The chicken burritos x2 is the best I'm on the menu. Service is quick too. Tacos are small so get at least 4.

Tacontento is a great place to eat, they offer the best tacos, and the best horchata around, the place was clean and well organized, the staff was very attentive, the prices are resonable, you wont be disappointed. Everything is made fresh to order.

Reasonably priced for Zona Viva this is a large place with indoor/outdoor ambience and a good selection of meat, chicken and seafood tacos. I had the plate of four with a choice of two meats for about $6. I opted for chorizo, whch is home made Mexican style chorizo. It was good, not great. Also had the chicken which was... More

Centrally located, good food if you are into popular mexican food like tacos, burritos, etc. Sitting outside is good to enjoy fresh air and get out of the inside because its noisy, several tv's playing different shows at the same time. Drawback of sitting outside if that people begging for money keep interrupting while you eat. Overall is a good... More
