299 Portobello Road
This colourful eatery attracts everyone from families filling up on first-rate Mexican food to young sophisticates drawn to Santo’s expertly mixed margaritas & soulful tunes. The menu allows
you to mix & match, so choose your filling & then decide between tacos, burritos, a quesadilla or a cazuela (a clay pot that comes with six flour tortillas so that you can roll your own).
Popular choices include marinated, roasted pork belly & subtly spiced ox cheeks cooked until meltingly tender. There are more than 20 Tequilas on offer; take them straight up in a frozen glass
or mixed in a margarita (try the sweet Tommy’s version if you don’t dig the salty hit). On Friday & Saturday nights, DJs liven the mood & divert attention from the sometimes painfully slow

I only have one word for this place: AVOID !!!
you will only be disapointed, the portions are tiny, overpriced, not tasty and they are cold when they arrive at your door. I mean… I understand that delivering 200 yards away would take nearly an hour and it might explain why the food was cold but once only for me ! Honestly a Disgrace ! try Camino accross the road…its much better on all counts !
minus 1000 out of 10 !

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.

This place is the definition of you get what you pay for. It's cheap for sure – but it's also awful. The service is beyond slow – and confused. We had to ask for our drinks three times over the course of fifteen minutes before we got them. Try ordering water or chips and salsa and it feels like you're speaking another language. And the food is beyond boring. We ordered guacamole – which was watery and bland. And the burritos are the worst of “Tex Mex” – just starchy and awful. Do not bother with this place.
