Our family visited this place due to the reviews and it had good food. The fajita tacos were very good. Good prices and good service.

This was our first Mexican food experience in Costa Rica. Since we are spoiled by our Southern California Mexican food influence, we are not able to give Taco Taco an excellent rating. Sorry! The food was decent though. Staff... just so so. Not as friendly...More

We have struggled with finding good, affordable restaurants in CR, but this place was great. Very cool atmosphere, good music, very good food, and totally reasonable prices. I was super glad we found it!

We ate here twice during our stay in Monteverde. Both times our food was delicious. The staff were professional and the atmosphere is fun. The hardest part is picking what to order!

Pros: Great ambiance, wonderful employees, and the bartender made a true margarita Cons: Food was 'meh'. Not a true example of Tex Mex, and not even close to an example of Mexican. Owner is a culture vulture - not Latina, Tico, just an ex-pat.More

Wow. This is a personal attack. I am a culture vulture. I am from Austin Texas and have been influenced by Latin and TexMex culture my entire life. I have lived in Costa Rica for 16 years. I do not hide who or what I...More
