It’s a great place to go with friends. Great vibe. They make good cocktails especially the margaritas. Food may be hit n miss but the nachos are certainly worthy of a recommendation. Unfortunately they closed down and I am still waiting for it to reopen...More

Ordered from uberEats.. Size of burrito was way smaller than average, the wrap didn't taste very fresh, the meat was taste less and dry, as well as whole burrito. Was suppose to come with sour cream (since they didn't even offer the guacamole option), but...More

Avoid Machete if you are in the area. The food tastes horrible and you are better off with a bowl of cornflakes.

Hi 47lucy123, we are quite not sure why there was no details given so we can identify the problem. Our food is one of the best Mexican in London. We are sorry for what ever the reason is for your experience.

I cant believe from all the great choice around we decided to try this place. It was the worst Mexican food I have ever had in London. We ordered nachos and they came half cold. There was barely any meat in there. Loads of guatemole...More

Hi Aiste, the nachos actually comes with cold sauces. Such as sour cream, guacamole, green salsa and tomatoes. This is the way original nachos actually made and we make our food homemade. We are however very sorry for the service you have received. We had...More

We had booked a table at Machete for a birthday treat, and set to work with a cocktail each (excepting those that don't drink). The ceviche starters were good enough by themselves, but as our visit was also a celebration, we pressed on with the...More
