Barman is rude to customers. Not acceptable in this day an age. Service take ages and if you complain about that they won't serve you anymore! Great customer service!

Went to Santo for lunch while walking around Portobello market.

+s:
1. The food tastes nice.
2. The menu is simple and adequately describes what you are ordering.
3. Nice decor.

-s:
1. It is quite pricey for what you are getting.
2. Staff are very friendly but lack attentiveness. I felt the place was being run by family and friends for family and friends. Not necessarily a bad thing but it's just not what I would prefer/expect. It took quite a long time to get our food and drinks.

I would still like to give Santo another try at some point. The food warrants it.

We have been going to Santo for many months now and believe it is actually the best Mexican restaurant you will find in London!!

My favourite on the menu is the steak burrito. So tasty and very filling. Most of the items on the menu are a little pricier than what you would find in other Mexican joints -but it is definitely worth it. The Nachos with chilli con carne are amazing.

Would advise booking if going on a Friday/Saturday evening (especially if youre with a large group) as it gets pretty busy and it's only a small place. It's cosy and the staff are really friendly.

We never go to any other Mexican places anymore as it just doesn't even compare to Santo. Great food.

Been going here regularly for a year. The staff are always friendly and welcoming- remembering our drinks order. The food has always been great, very tasty but not always filling. It can be pricey if you order a few drinks but I love the atmosphere.
