My partner and I had a great date night at Eldorado Taco. Our booth was cozy and the tacos were tasty! A creative menu and interesting selection of drinks made for a fun and memorable evening.

Very expensive, $15 for plain nachos with avocado, not even salsa or some kind of crema/sour cream, over priced tiny tacos, not even lime on the side to add in, poor service overall in addition to tasty but nowhere near reasonably priced food.

Delicious food! The flavours were very well defined and balanced, nothing overwhelmed anything else in the taco. I especially loved the Tempura Avocado taco. Who knew? Our order taker and servers were excellent, just the right amount of presence. Its a bit loud so not a great place for a quiet date, but for an energetic experience and smashing food, this is a solid choice. My friends and I loved it all.

Can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed our dinner. Server Mike was cheerful & friendly, there when we wanted/needed something, but otherwise non-intrusive. Margaritas were excellent, as were the tacos & guac we sampled. My only regret is not being hungrier bc there were more tacos than I could try.

It was my daughters 13th bday dinner... we made reservations online and specifically said that it was her bday. We dropped the girls off at the restaurant and told the hostess again that it was my daughters bday and asked for a little dessert with a candle. we came back to pick the girls up and pay the bill. I asked my daughter if she blew out a candle, she said no :/
Other than this little mishap, it was a good choice.

The food is outstanding, the service is great.
But when 4 people pay 200 bucks for some tacos and one round of margaritas, it stings that we can't do this more often

This is my favourite restaurant in Ottawa. I raved about taking my coworkers there for months. I was a little disappointed when I saw that the menu had changed and the prices had increased. The quality and flavour were still there which was a big relief however they were less of the “good stuff” and more filler than they used to be. My coworkers were happy thankfully as it was their first experience. Still looking forward to coming back and giving it another shot. But I really hope the corn comes back with the season because I shed a real tear that it was gone haha.

All the food we 've had at Ledorado has been outstanding, and we've tried almost everything on the menu. I can't get enough of the corn on the cob. Some kinks in the service still need to be ironed out. On two separate occasions items we ordered were forgotten. It was quickly taken care of but still a little disappointing and surprising.

We'll still be going back do recommend you try Eldorado.

The service was fine as was the ambiance although I found it quite cool inside. The tuna ceviche was as good as any i’ve Eaten even in Latin America however I was a little disappointed with the rest of the food we ordered. The tacos were tasty but not cooked through leaving a lot of the cheese cold and stringy. The beef was also tasty but quantity was very small. The fish taco was good. I think that in time things will improve.

Food was fabulous, tons of flavour and very unique taco choices. Unfortunately our server wasn’t aware of most of the items on the menu and left us waiting for drinks, ordering, and bills for up to 30 minutes. Will definitely be back because the food was so good though.

The food is okay. The staff are good. The ambiance is good. The value is just not there for me. Nothing was overtly wrong or bad, but the portions were very small and the prices were very high. I like to splurge on a meal every couple of weeks and this wasn’t comparable to what I would typically get for the same price. The margaritas were great but at $16 each they weren’t THAT great. For me it’s an issue of value.

A really tasty place. The tacos and cocktails are really tasty and they have a great variety of flavour combinations. Really enjoyed the beef tacos while my wife loved the scallop ceviche and the shrimp tacos. They were also really accomodating about food intolerences and the service was really quick and friendly

My BF and I planned to come here before we even got to Ottawa and we are so happy we did. We ate out a lot during our trip, which included both fine dining and dives. This restaurant was our favourite!

The house beer on tap was amazing and the food was better. Although some of the tacos were expansive we loved them. Only concern was the corn wasn’t cooked all the way through but the seasoning was great! Highly recommend the sushi tuna taco and the tempura shrimp!

The service was exceptional, the drinks were very innovative and delicious, and the tacos amazing. I'd skip the ceviche- although good, the tacos blew my mind and I regret not trying a few more of those bad boys instead :)

Brand new expanded menu with many more delicious offerings ... service is always friendly and attentive, the bar alone is worth the visit (outstanding drinks and superb draft beer on tap) but the food is what will bring you back again and again ... the atmosphere is relaxed and all you see are happy faces all around. Great place to chill out and enjoy yourself and friends.

We loved the experience as soon as we walked in the door. Friendly, outstanding and knowledgeable service. The food was incredible and the cocktails were exceptional. We love to dine out a lot, and liken this spot to some of our fave spots in NYC and LA. We came with another couple on an early Sunday night and will be making this a regular stop. The ambiance snd all of the staff made our experience one we will be sharing with friends. Go there.

Met my 2 sons for dinner. They love tacos. Food and margaritas were absolutely delicious. I wish there was more choice for appetizers that did not include fish. Also I wish there were some desserts.
