Excellent Mexican food ... in Spain

We visited Gallo Santo twice during our week in Barcelona. I get excited when there's a well-reviewed Mexican place in a new city, and Gallo Santo surpassed my expectations. The food was fresh, the menu was interesting, and the atmosphere was contemporary without being overly hip. Great combo.

Pros: Everything is delicious, Everything is vegan

So good we had to go back another time. On our two visits we’ve had fish tacos, al pastor tacos, tried three different burritos (tinga/ yaca pibil / pastor), naked burrito bowl, all perfect. Homemade lemonade also good.

Absolutely delicious food with great variety!


I absolutely loved this restaurant - incredible food with incredible variety, absolutely everything was truly delicious!!!!! You need to get the flautus as these are TO DIE for. We went back twice (and would have gone a 3rd time if we could have gotten a table!) because this food was so delicious!

Great Mexican food

Tasty vegan place. The portions are a bit small for the prices, the service is not great and the place is really small.
But the nachos with lentil chili are great. The guac as well.
The kitchen is open so you can look at yor food being prepared.
I had particular issue with the waitress who insisted she brought smt that she never did but we still got charged for it. Also, service is a bit slow and it is a small place.

Pros: All vegan, Tasty Mexican food

Cons: The waitress, The space-it’s very intimate, A bit expensive

Very tasty, fair prices

Tacos are rather small, but if you start with starters, get some delicious tacos, you still have room for dessert and won't have to pay a hefty bill.

Staff is friendly and is always ready to help and quickly available for additional requests.😄

Pros: Tacos al pastor , Limonada (if you like lemon) , Fair prices

The Chocolate Fondant was 5 stars by itself

The restaurant was 4.5 stars. Good food. One complaint is that the servers told us the restaurant was full with reservations at about 10pm, so we sat at the bar. We ate, but no one arrived and multiple tables remained empty. Maybe there were just a few no shows.

Great tacos and ceviche

All dishes ordered were served very quick and tasted very good. Was very packed on a Saturday evening, so was lucky to get a table. Service was very friendly. It was the best plant-based Ceviche I’ve ever tried, even though I think it is a dish with a lot of odd flavors 😌.

Delicious, cosy, and cheap!

Went there for lunch together and each of us had a different bowl with a different extra “protein” topping. All the ingredients seemed very fresh and everything was utterly delicious! Especially the toppings gave our meals a special touch! We were surprised by the good portion sizes - especially at this price point!
Left happy and satisfied! Highly recommended!

Pros: Great taste, Fresh ingredients, Good portion sizes

Loved it!

This place has great vibes and the food is amazing! It was really busy when we got there and there were only 2 workers, but they still managed to give pretty good service.

Great for sharing, everything almost comes in pairs:)

Over a year later and they just got better and better 🫶🏽

Authentic Mexican flavours

We visited this 100% plant-based Mexican restaurant for lunch one day. It's a nice little place offering a good range of tacos, burritos, nachos, fajitas and more. The also have a selection of Mexican beers (including Negra Modello, my personal favourite) and a good cocktail list (though we didn't try any as it was lunchtime).

We started with the nachos with added chilli sin carne, which were very good - we really loved the cheese sauce! We then tried one of their burritos each - I had the one with jackfruit (jaca al pibil) and my wife the one with the spicy carrot concoction (tinga pastanaga). Both came with the additional fillings of rice, black beans, sweetcorn, cashew cream, lettuce, peppers and a dollop of pico de gallo and both were very tasty. We also enjoyed the little pots of hot sauce that came on the table - but beware the hot one is very hot indeed!

Service was also very friendly - our waitress was lovely! She - like many of the staff team - was from Mexico. They are certainly giving Barcelona a taste of home!

Yummy but small portions

It’s great to have an all vegan mexican restaurant in Barcelona! The Gallo Santo fajitas are amazing, although in general the dishes are quite small in size (especially the tacos) so I usually don’t feel totally full. Other than that I really recommend this place!

Pros: Interesting combinations, Delicious

Cons: Small portions for the price
