First off to anyone who has claimed their their food is not authentic... where are you from? This is absolutely Mexico City style food. It's what they claim and it's what I can prove to you.
This is the one place I always bring my family from Mexico to. Although different regions prepare their dishes differently this is definitely Mexico City at it's finest.
The ""no menu"" concept although hard for some less sophisticated reviewers to grasp is part of the ambiance and mystique of the restaurant. It allows the waiters to recite the dishes to you... enticing you with their descriptions as to how each dish is prepared... ""as if it was born in the sauce.""
Be prepared to be serenaded by wonderful food, great service and atmosphere and a song by their solo guitarist, very typical in Mexico to have someone like that serenade your table and yes he'll do it for tip money.
5 stars from this reviewer on taste, authenticity, wait staff and guitarist!

One of my favorite restaurants. I found this place in 1999 while was still living in SF and working in LA. It was love at first bite when I tasted the Shrimp Puerto Vallarta. Since I've moved to in LA in 2000 this place has been a tradition to take my parents to (they pay!) everytime they come down to visit. Just called to make a reservation for the day before T-day.
Can't wait !!!!

This place is unique. You cannot compare it to any other eating establishment. The food has been the same for decades. Yes, good food, not the greatest, but the experience is what people go for.
The service is special. The or deurves are endless and the margaritas are not worldly, but you cannot but help enjoy the evening.
This restaurant is known the world over.

Bad food, dumb concept (no menu, etc). Inauthentic food, annoying waiter, and a guy with a guitar who comes around and plays a song and then waits for you to give him $2. Literally, stands there and coughs till you shell over some dough. What an annoying experience. Oh, and worst of all, the food was crap.

Gardens of Taxco is a great meal at a great price. There is no menu, so it's as easy as it can get. First you get vegetables and chips (of course), followed by a small quesadilla, then an enchilada, then your main course with rice beans and tortillas, and at the end with a dessert and a glass of sherry. By the way we got a pitcher of a great margharitta as well. Our bill came to $66. Go and enjoy!

This has been one of my favorite restaurants since the early 1970's. The waiters are fabulous and so effecient. No Menus is a nice touch. The food is the best I have found. My children have all eaten here at some time and still talk about their experience. My older children have returned on their own over the years. I now live in the Antelope Valley and look forward to my trips to Hollywood to enjoy dinner here. I will come back again and again. The wait can be long but the food makes it well worth the wait.
