Great location. Food is average and the prices are ridiculously expensive...Portions are extremely small given the price you have to pay..

I really like Mexican food (love tacos !!) and after almost two weeks touring around China and Hong Kong, almost run to this place when I saw the sign of Dos Equis Beer and Tacos from a block distance. I need to recognize, I was done already of Asian food and tired after a long walk around HK streets, so... More

Socialito has prime spot along Wyndham street, and is surrounded by other popular bars, making it a very vibe spot come the end of the working day. The outdoor taqueria is very popular, and the design is very retro cool with lots of stainless steel accents and neon lighting. The margaritas are frozen and on tap (amazing) and as basket... More

Main Wyndham HK scene .. nice ambiance which includes tasteful, antiquated setting. Mexican quesadillas/tacos available but far from qualifying as great. Good for a drink or two. Probably doubles up as night club in at night.

I've been several times to Socialito and it's always doing a very good job!! Tacos and Quesadillas are tasteful and rich, service is fast and informal, and they have different offers for each day of the week....... I love Tuesday: half price for all the food!!! No doubt I'll be back again!!!

The place is more of a bar/club than serious eating establishment. The atmosphere is good and it is set up like a Mexican tapas concept. Portions are small and not particularly great. Do not go here for just a dining experience.

I've eaten here twice before inside, which was pretty good. Atmosphere outweighs food taste but still worth to try at least once. This review is actually for the outside section. Went for dinner and was more fun than I expected. Ordered a bunch of different tacos, all were tasty and fairly priced. Margaritas were very good and refreshing, colleagues just... More

Headed there last night for drinks with 5 friends, after dinner. Place has a cool vibe and good beats. We got there and got a nice small table. Drinks list isnt that extensive, but they do some yummy cocktails. Prices are a little on the steep side, but thats to be expected if you're in the heart of Wyndham Street... More

If not of good cocktails, Socialito is entirely forgettable. We called to make a reservation for 3 but was told they only take reservation for party of 6 or above. However when we got there, they actually held reservation for small table. When we challenged them why, they made up excuses like those were for special menu of some promotion... More

To begin, this is not an entirely fair "review". I've only been to Socialito for lunch, twice, and I saw outside, not in the restaurant proper. The set lunches I had were fine, nothing wrong, nothing amazing. One of my friends however decided to order a la carte, the taco's he received were 1. expensive and 2. TINY, oh and... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
