I'm sad that the other reviews for Santo aren't so positive as we were very impressed by the meal we had there at the weekend. It has been some time since they were written and I can only assume that things have dramatically improved over the last 6 months.
It's a funny place, full of rickety tables and chairs, but very suited to that part of London. While some of the main courses are quite expensive, you can eat on the cheap if you pick wisely. There's a good range of burritos to suit all tastes; I had the cochinita pibil, which was well sized and stuffed with meat. In fact, it was possibly one of the best burritos I've had in London in a long time…certainly one of the spiciest! A dish of enchiladas was also very good although almost twice the price and a lot smaller than the burrito. While Santo is a little out of the way, it's worth making the trip here as it does offer more offbeat taste of Mexico that you won't find elsewhere in London.
