    Not impressed by being told we could not have low chairs when we had a party member that had just had a hip operation and the restaurant was empty at the time. Although I understand they were fully booked, the restaurant at the time was empty and there were tables that we could have swapped for with low chairs everywhere. Party member hurt themselves trying to sit in high chairs and is now having issues post surgery. Was told we should have mentioned at time of booking but this was done through online and was not given the option, and as we had never visited your restaurant before we did not know seating Very inconsiderate

    We went to Pancho Villa to celebrate my sons 18th birthday and enjoyed the quality of Mexican food and the cocktails on offer and the great service of the staff there. Had a great night.

    The best service we’ve had in a long time. They were more than happy to customise the menu for dietary requirements. Very fast service. Great atmosphere and delicious tequila.

    We had a couple of fantastic meals here during our trip to Hobart. All the tacos had amazing flavors. We are still talking about the duck taco special. The nachos with smoked lamb and the charred corn are worth a mention as well. Our vegetarian friend also had plenty of options to choose from. The little bar out back is a great spot to chill out prior or post dinner.

About the restaurant

Hobart's holy grail

Hobart’s dining scene is growing from strength to strength with top notch eateries found on every corner. One of our favourites is Pancho Villa, a cheeky Mexican retreat boasting a killer vibe, an excellent drinks list and some pumped up Mexican eats. During the summer months this place is packed with punters seeking booze and bar snacks. And in the winter the crypt like dining space and courtyard turn into a cosy sanctuary ideal for friendly get togethers or even a date.

Menu highlights include the tacos which come stuffed with things like chilli pulled pork and salsa roja, ox tongue and soft shell crab. You can also grab larger mains from both ‘land’ and ‘sea’, plus some beautiful desserts… rich curro dulce de leche or refreshing tangy lime, avocado and green tea tart.

Oh, and if you love tequila - this is THE place for you. With pages upon pages of different drops plus the option for a tequila ‘flight’ it really doesn’t get much better than this.

Best dish: beef cheek with cerveza negra & chipotle braised, with avocado & lime puree & salsa cocida.
