We went here before a moose heads game so it was a little busy but it was a great experience and I am definitely coming back to try more tacos!

We went in at 830 on a Friday. There was a nice mix of people and the place was very comfortable. We loved the food, especially the tortillas and we learned much about tequila and mezcal

We would absolutely return to explore the menu.

overall very good experience. The wait to get our drinks was too long and the wait for the tortilla chips was long as well. However, once we got our drinks, they were delicious. The food was also very good.
I am missing the braised beef dish that they used to have on the menu with roasted vegetables.

I have eaten here a few times now. My friend and I had a nice little booth in the action by the bar. I was sad there was no rose lol but I had a good Mexican beer. I ordered the seafood stew, it was ok but I did not expect all of the seafood to be in chopped little pieces. (Caldo de Mariscos - $21). In fact, every recipe I have looked up shows whole shrimp or scallops. I was slightly disappointed at this and found the broth a bit thin tasting. I think I should have gotten some tacos.

However, we had a good time and the salsas and tortillas for an appetizer were fun and appreciated. I wish they had maybe a couple more options for dessert, but I see they have added salads to the dinner menu and this is great.

Thank you!

First, I really love being able to make a reservation. Myself and two friends had a meal before the Moosehead's hockey game and we arrived at 6pm and were on our way out at 7pm. The service was excellent, from the hostess who seated us to the servers who took orders and delivered food and drink. The food was truly excellent...I had the Fish Tacos and it was amazing - best I have ever had. I can't wait for my next visit. I highly recommend this restaurant!

The temperature of the food could be improved greatly. There wasn't enough flour tortillas for the amount of meat in the pork carnitas. Food was tasty, service was good.

Service was a little slow, but the waitress checked in and they brought extra salsa and chips. Please bring water for the table and some extra napkins without us having to ask. Such a nice little thing that I always appreciate! My husband says “tissues in the bathroom please”.

We were a party of five, and we had a good time at Antojo's. I really like the vibe & decor. Four of us were quite happy with our food, but one of us couldn't get his first two choices on the menu, took a recommendation from the waiter instead, and ended up with a pork chop that was *way* overcooked. This was the only blemish on a successful night out. Antojo's has an excellent and creative beer selection and I tried and very much enjoyed the mole stout—a collab with Good Robot. I also really enjoyed my beef tongue tacos. My third time at this establishment and I will be back.

We celebrated a birthday here. Enjoyed our evening starting with some Margueritas, chips and salsas. Then shared tacos, and enchiladas. Very tasty with options to add their various sauces at the table. Staff are very friendly and accomodating.
Would highly recommend.

It was very good. We were going to Neptune and decided to have a bite to eat beforehand. Could hear staff grumbling that we had 8 people instead of 7 as the reservation stated. We had an unexpected person join us. We were there at 12, and not many people in the restaurant.
Food was very good. Kids loved it.

This is a very nice restaurant, the only bad side of our evening was the table give to us was by the door so every time someone open the door we would get the cold draft , they should not have a table by that door.

Super loud (people yelling to hear each other) couldn’t hear music. Food over done- too many ingredients so mostly tasted bland. Basic Mexican is delicious.. Not all ingredients in the 21.00$ ceviche which was disappointing. Server could have warned us but she obviously didn’t know. She (our server) was great and saved the evening.

I could not say better things about this restaurant. My daughter picked it for her 10th birthday. Great service and even better food, the Baja fish taco was amazing but the beer battered calif lower taco was unbelievable. Best restaurant in Halifax by far. Loved it so much that we've decided to make it our regular go to.

The food was exceptional; great prices, huge portions, and a welcome (but optional) level of spice! As a spice-addict, it was a very pleasant surprise - and the staff was prompt, helpful and quite personable. I can’t wait to try the new menu, and bring more friends!

The food at this place was amazing. I could not recommend the corn appetizer enough! The service wasn’t the best. We waited for our chips and salsa for a while even though our waitress checked with us twice and was surprised it hadn’t been brought both times. She did not write down our order and had to come back and ask, but honestly I prefer that to her getting the order wrong. The noise was a bit much, but the food was amazing and the drinks were so good! The holiday spritz is excellent if you go this holiday season give it a try. I had the fish tacos and you should too! The pulled pork with pineapple tacos are a very close second! Go, eat and enjoy. Make reservations though or you’re not getting a table!
