    The service and the ambience was nice. Except the seats by the windows were quite chilly. The cocktails were interesting but a bit bizarre flavoured The tacos were overpriced & quite lack lustre. Each type missing something key The green papaya salad should not be on the menu. It was horrible

    My husband and I were surprised how small the restaurant was and although the tables were very close together it was still a nice ambience. The decor was quite beautiful. The service was great and we really enjoyed the street corn, pico fries and two kinds of tacos. The beef tacos were definitely our favourite.

    I had been waiting to go to this place for a while now, and when my husband and I came to town to visit for the long weekend we booked a reservation immediately! My review. The service was great. However the cocktails we sub par. Unfortunately the margaritas we pretty watery, and not nearly as good as the pictures online make them look. Beef tacos were great, but the pork was pretty flavorless and I didn’t finish them. The nachos and peppers for appetizers were fantastic though! Best nachos I’ve had eating out in a while. Unfortunately this place did not live up to my expectations.

    Picaro Cocktails & TacosResponded on October 13, 2022Hello there, we'd like to thank you for choosing to eagerly dine with us. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your appetizers but disappointed that the rest of your meal did not exceed your expectations.

    Truthfully, I keep coming back for their unique tequilla cocktails. Best, homemade nacho's - nothing like them in the city. Served with "so fresh!" guacamole and in-house made hot sauce. Every bit of the tacos is a bit of taste heaven. Only suggestion would be to have servers clear off used dishes/glasses during the meal.

    Picaro has definitely changed from our last visit. The fish taco had no taste at all and our taco chips were overcooked. The table next to us could not eat the churros as they were extremely salty. We did not order them based on that because the Chef said that the batter was that way. Hoping they go back to their incredible taco style of cooking in the future.

    Underwhelming birthday meal. We had an unfortunate series of mix ups- they had run out of papaya salad and we weren't informed until our meal was almost over and we were still waiting for it. There was also a mix up with half our order, as it never came either and had to be refired after we had finished our first plates of tacos. Friendly staff, but unfortunate there were a handful of misses that took away from the evening. The street corn would be awesome if it was charred and spicy- as is was very bland, not worth it. We were big fans of the pico fries. Creamsicle cocktail was phenomenal, although also came with a wait when they were out of coconut cream. Fish tacos were our favourite by far. Overall, we must have just had an off experience. Hopefully next time will be better! (Highly recommend the $100 giftcard from Costco for $80).

    Food was amazing. Great guacamole and chips. Tacos, delicious. 3 tacos each was more than enough, along with an appie or two, for the three people at our table. It was quiet when we were there from 5pm-7pm and started to fill up around 6:30. Went with the feature cocktails and made the right choice. Don’t skip the churros. Service was perfect! Will return, and soon.

    It was just an okay experience. It wasn’t busy at all but we had to wave down our waitress to get drinks. The guacamole was good but the street corn appetizer had no flavour. We tried a few different tacos and they were just okay as well. Not sure if the heating wasn’t working that evening but it was freezing in the restaurant.

    New Year's Eve meal was very over priced. Should have just ordered off the menu. There were only 5 groups in the restaurant but they sat everyone directly beside eachother with the rest of the tables empty. No social distancing here. Super confusing from both a COVID and atmosphere point of view. Could barely hold a conversation over the loud table around 20 inches from us, with no barriers what so ever.

    Picaro Cocktails & TacosResponded on January 4, 2022We thank you for your business + feedback. Throughout all the ever changing regulations, we have been proud to stick by them every step of the way. When barriers + spacing was regulated, plexiglass was installed for the entire duration. When these regulations were removed, we removed the barriers as they took up a significant amount of space + only allowed for 1/2 capacity in our small space. Our guests comfort is important to us so we will be sure to pass along your feedback to our team.

    You can tell the cook is white, the tacos were blan and didn’t really have much flavour, the street corn just tasted so plain almost like canned corn, a spoon of grease and mayo thrown into a bowl. Service was good, but she would leave us sitting there for long, and it wasn’t until I made direct eye contact with her that she would finally come over. We sat there waiting for our bill for about 10-15 mins. Over all it wasn’t the worst place I’ve been but I definitely thought it was gonna be way better. 6-7/10 stars. Thanks

    The tacos were not very good and quite pricey for the quality. I had the lamb tacos, the lamb was over cooked and dry. I found myself adding as much salsa as possible to try to eat it. It should have been like melt in your mouth tender. The shrimp tacos were quite tasty! Drinks were excellent. I had the Lucille Ball Margarita, officially one of my favourite cocktails!
