The restaurant is cute and cozy, the service was great. The music was a little loud and party-like for an early sitting at 18h. The food was ok.

Authentic Mexican food in a chill environment. It's a very small restaurant so do reserve. The things to improve are the Pastor tacos - they were terrible. The winners were the fish and the shrimp & chorizo tacos (delish!). The only thing that is a real annoyance is the music, it is very loud. Couple that with the extremely high ceiling and it's virtually impossible to hear what others are saying. That's enough to make me rethink going back.

Serieusement?
42$ pour une aussi petite portion? Il est ecrit fajitas to share et je suis encore sur ma faim... Dommage c'était quand même bon.

Très bonne ambiance, service attentionné, bon cocktails mais les saveurs tombent un peu à plat dans la majorité des plats ou du moins les végétariens (nous avons pris les tacos au choux-fleurs et au champignons suite à une entrée de nachos végé). La salade el gordo par contre est excellente.

Even though it was a Monday evening, El Gordo was bustling - it was a beautiful, warm day and the atmosphere was lively and happy. We loved everything about this restaurant ....the food, the vibe, the pleasant staff. The nachos were delicious and we thanked the waitress several times for guiding us to the "small" portion that definitely was not small. Our mains (colflor taco & quesadilla) were also scrumptious. We will definitely be back.
