This was the most pleasant surprise I could ever expect to find in France - an authentic Mexican restaurant. I'm a fan of North American Mexican restaurants, but they're never really authentic. I also love Tex-Mex, but they stand alone as a different style. But...More

The problem with a lot of French restaurants and brasseries is that they all serve essentially the same menu. I was looking for an alternative to salmon, veal or beef (in sauce) or duck (that isn't a pizza)! Tripadvisor came to the rescue along wirh...More

I know that whilst we were in France we should have eaten in a French restaurant but I'm so glad they were all booked! We had two fabulous meals in El Taquito and I'd travel via Le Mans to eat here again. Delicious.

We were happy to find this restaurant in the middle of France. The owners are from Mexico and the food is just like being there again. Very delicious and high quality.

This small resto lies behind an unassuming facade, and even on the very busy day of the Le Mans Drivers' Parade, the chefs created good quality, well spiced, Mexican food. We'll definitely visit again in 2016! Recommended!

We found El Taquito after a long day of sight-seeing and skipping lunch. Our teenager was starving, but the generous portions and fresh ingredients filled him right up! The owner speaks fluent English - easier for us than stumbling along in our marginal French.

You are made to feel very welcome immediately in this brightly-festooned restaurant. And then the food...having grown up in California, I am used to great Mexican cuisine, and the food at El Taquito is among the best I have ever tasted. Fresh, well presented (which...More

After years of living in France, I had just about given up on finding a decent Mexican restaurant. Looking for a place for lunch on our way home from Brittany, we stopped at El Taquito - and I walked out smiling. The food is homey,...More
