    Tostada chip or any other chips not good. Guacamole not good at all. Server was good. Margaritas way overpriced but may be due to Vanderbilt name.

    Nice location and space. Menu looked promising but lacked flavor. Fish tacos had not seasoning and when I asked for some salt it never arrived. Finally caught a server’s attention to ask again and also for some hot sauce. Improved this dish but still it would have been very simple for the kitchen to do it right the first time. Also mint and pickled jalapeños in the guacamole??? And 28 dollars for a margarita with cucumbers? No thanks. Corn appetizer was decent and the Al pastor tacos also good. Two people with 3 drinks, 6 individual tacos, guacamole and corn appetizer =200.00:-(

    The food was solid, the setting was nice, and the service was excellent. However, the food was ridiculously overpriced. $25 for guacamole with a couple of chips??!! Definitely would not recommend.

    The entertainment was way too loud and obnoxious. Distracting and very loud. Not necessary in an “upscale” pricey taco restaurant. We quickly ate to escape the noise. Food was delicious but small portions.

    The food and ambiance was good! I should have known that it would be expensive given the fact that it’s A) a hotel restaurant and B) inside the Condado Vanderbilt. My tacos were good and the shishito peppers were top notch! Not where I would go for tacos again, though. Too pricey.

    We had a horrible experience at tacos and tequila. We came here for our son’s birthday. We told the waitress that he had a severe peanut allergy, the tuna tataki appetizer that has no peanuts listed as an ingredient had one peanut on the plate. We did not see it until after someone else already started eating. My son had an allergic reaction and had to go to the hospital. No management came out to speak to the family that remained, no chefs came out to speak to us either. Incredibly dangerous and an entirely preventable accident. An overall horrible experience.

    Very expensive for poor service and mediocre food. Used to be much better. Not worth going to. Chips for queso stale. Not so special margaritas for 26. Chicken tacos too spicy for kids. 26 small sundae. It's a joke. So many great restaurants in San Juan. This is no longer one of them.

    It’s marked as $$ but is much more expensive because servings are so small. $20+ for 2 small tacos. $23 for a quesadilla for a toddler and it was gross. I never thought a cheese quesadilla could be gross 😫 paid $15 for 3 tostados and an once of salsa. They said the picture of chips and salsa on open table is old and they don’t have it. 0/10 won’t be back

    Mixed reviews from our party of six on the tacos. Fish taco was bland, the shrimp taco was inedible, the corn was good, the fundido tasted more like goat cheese, and for our party of 6, the bill was over $500. Definitely not worth the price.

    The place is beautiful inside of a beautiful hotel but the food is over priced and disgusting! We spent $90 for 4 tacos, 2 alcoholic drinks and 2 bottled waters. The food was not good at all. I’ve enjoyed food in Puerto Rico and this restaurant was the worst food experience I’ve had so far on my vacation. Not to mention I spent more money here than any other restaurant with extremely better food and drinks ! Don’t waste your money

    We had such a great time at Tacos and Tequila. Made a reservation and we’re seated right away. Our server was so kind and knowledgeable. Food was delicious. We had the guacamole, fish tacos, and chicken tings tacos. A tad pricey but it’s attached to the hotel and very good. 10/10

    Finding the restaurant was a bit confusing! I had to walk through the hotel and ask the workers because I genuinely had no idea where I was going. Food was 7/10. My tacos were tasteless & the soda was completely flat. The ambiance was gorgeous though so i’d suggest going here just for views, alcohol, & appetizers.
