    The food was really delicious, staff were great. The only downside is the music is way to loud and its hard to hear and think. Otherwise really great Mexican for St Kilda

    I’ve been here heaps of times and last night the food wasn’t great. Meat tacos were tough, mushroom taco very salty and the nachos were soggy. Not great at all

    We booked a table but they said the system overbooked so we had to wait. The bartender told us it could be 2 minutes or 2 hours, who knows. We still waited and thankfully it was it about 5 minutes before we were seated. We ordered drinks the same time we ordered food. The food came, the drinks didn't. We ordered again when they cleared our plates, we sat for another 15 minutes with no drinks so we just left. The food was good, nothing to write home about but still decent. The service was a bit rubbish even though all the tables seemed to leave when we arrived so it was pretty quiet after we sat down, compared to about 10 minutes before that

    Food is really nice and well presented. It was a shame that it took over an hour to get out food ( 4 mains) and to only get as an explanation a “unfortunate timing).

    The restaurant is very trendy. The music is pumping and the cocktails are flowing. The nachos and margaritas are amazing! I would definitely go back there again.

    This was our second visit during an extended stay in our St Kilda . The service and food on both occasions were fabulous. The pre dinner cocktails were expertly mixed . And the choice of wines perfect with spicy food . The tacos were sooo good, filled with fresh and spicy ingredients as well as great additions like fresh guacamole. The enchiladas were authentic and completely delicious. During our second visit the staff dealt with a challenging ‘visitor ‘ who wandered in off the street and did not want to leave when asked very politely - the staff were tactful and courteous and eventually managed to convince him to leave without incident and with his dignity intact. The only detractor this time was the play list - our first visit was over a couple of hours and we were treated to a sound track that included and eclectic mix that included The Stones, Bowie , U2, Beach Boys, the Kinks etc . This visit was a bit different with the entire genre being rap and the main chorus based on variations of the oft repeated phrases of ‘ motherf#%##*er and nig##*r’ and combinations thereof . We still had a great meal this visit ... mainly because of the great staff and of course the great food and Margaritas , but as much as we enjoy rap it was never designed to accompany dining and conversation. That’s our only gripe

    Juana is my go-to for Mexican in Melbourne, and I've tried most of them. The fish tacos are legendary and the margaritas dangerously delicious!

    Food was lovely and staff were very friendly and attentive. Would happily go back. The happy hour frozen margaritas are a must try. Make sure you try the fish taco.

    Cool vibe, had tacos and margaritas, overall it was pretty standard. Wouldn’t rave about the food but it was enjoyable. Worth checking out if you’re a local.

    We booked a table for six two weeks in afvance but were shown to a hodgpodge of seats a backess stool two wingback arm chairs and a bench with a 70cm x 30 cm low coffee table when we complained that this was not adequate or practical for 6 drinks and meals and was awkward to eat at we were told that the young crowd the restaurant caters to would be fine with it And we should have listed out “special needs” when we booked. It was clear no care was given and no-one understood what reserving a table for dinner means When we kept insisting we were unhappy we were offered a proper table when one came up. Which we accepted. Food snd drinks good attitude bad fundamental customer service lacking. And fyi of the patrons at 8 groups average age of clientele was about 45 Only 2 groups were under 30. So no awareness of the actual demographic who supported the business One meal was forgotten and had to be chased up. Also no covid plan or provisions were in place other than staff in masks no check in no contact gathering no adequate spacing or number restrictions. Its a shame as the good food and drinks alone is not what makes a successful restaurant

    Great Food, only a short wait after ordering. Friendly helpful Staff. I will recommend Juana Taco. Great decor too. *Being a Mexican themed restaurant it would be great to have Latin/Mexican Music, a mix of new and traditional - not quite so loud. I will return.
