Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Stumbled upon this place late one Saturday night a few weeks back. Small but lovely atmosphere, owners/chefs were friendly and the menu was excellent. The homemade chilli was as nice as I've had, the quesadilla also were amazing. Very reasonably priced. Will return!

Very small restaurant in the centre of Whitby. Really tasty food and great atmosphere - I really enjoyed the Texas chilli, the best I’ve ever had tbh. The food was fantastic and at a great price. Friendly service too!

Lovely, friendly, unpretentious little Mexican restaurant. Very reasonable prices, small but great menu and the homemade chilli 🌶 sauce was the best I’ve ever tried. It’s not licensed , so bring a bottle and would advise booking as it’s small. Will definitely be back on...our next trip to Whitby.More

We ate here last Sunday whilst staying in Whitby for the weekend. I reserved a table through their Facebook page to avoid the disapointment of not being able to get a table. The menu is varied and has lots to choose from. We ordered chicken...fajitas and a quesadilla. Our food was gorgeous and the portions were huge. We could have shared my quesadilla it was so big. The ladies that work there are lovely and make you feel so welcome. They offered to box up our leftovers for us and gave us some Churros and chocolate sauce. We will definitely be eating here again next time we are in Whitby.More

We had an excellent visit to Al Taco. We visited as a group of 5 including a vegetarian and a vegan. There were plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, and meat options too. The food was delicious, the staff were friendly and welcoming, and it...was incredibly good value. Plus the portions were huge. Just to be aware, it is your own booze (£1.50 corkage pp).More

DON'T go here if you want gourmet fine dining. DO DO DO go here if you want fab food, hefty portions and warm and friendly service. Its a small place with a cosy street food feel. Plenty of menu choices and the food was fabulous....Its Bring Your Own Booze with a reasonable £1.50 corkage charge. Very highly recommendedMore

OMG One of the tastiest meals I have eaten in ages. I had the meat chilli with rice with melted cheese on top. My wife had the soft tacos. Both were generous servings and very tasty.Staff were welcoming. Would recommend this eatery. We ate in...but they also do takeaway. They were non stop all night with both tourists and locals, which is a good sign.More

I stumbled across this cute little restaurant, called in and came out stuffed as a stuffed thing. The food was very good, I had delicious nachos and potato skins (I really didn’t need to order both but couldn’t make my mind up as to what...I’d rather have), it was all very tasty and as I’ve already said the portions were huge. The hot sauce was tasty but a tad too hot for me, luckily it was in a dish on the side. The two ladies serving were lovely and very friendly. There were a couple of little downsides - the card machine wasn’t working and I wasn’t told when i ordered just overhead as someone else was paying. very luckily I’d been given a £20 note earlier in the day and stuffed it in the back of my phone- I usually use my phone for contactless and don’t use cash or cards so ordinarily wouldn’t have been able to pay. - the place doesn’t sell alcohol, not a major issue but the particular night I visited I really could have done with a glass of wine with my food. Those are just tiny little issues tho, I would call again.More

We’ll what a lovely little surprise we have never been before and found this spot on Tripadvisor. The food is freshly cooked and the staff are friendly and welcoming. I had a quesadilla it was blooming massive and bloody gorgeous. My wife had the chicken...burrito and she enjoyed every mouthful. We also had some of their own homemade hot sauce it had just the right amount of bite. The menu is small but perfectly fit rend and whilst it doesn’t sell alcohol you can bring your own with a corkage charge of £1.50 per person. Will definitely come back and recommend it if you fancy a change from oriental food or fish and chipsMore
