Enjoyed a relaxing evening here for a small family reunion. Service prompt and friendly. Food quality "good" but nothing to write home about. Excellent atmosphere accompanied with authentic music. Would say the food and especially the alcoholic drinks are on the expensive side, but then this isn't my normal cuisine, the guacamole starter was particularly small although it certainly had...

Fabulous experience was had by all of our small party last week. Impeccable service and absolutely best Mexican food I have ever tasted. Everything including tacos chips are made on the premises. San Julian is owned by a Mexican family, hence the authentic taste and experience. For dessert the Churros and chocolate is a must. Booking advisable.

I must say because I am a fan of nachos I did find THE place ! Every thing in fact is very tasteful and delicious and the best being The Frozen Margarita JUG. Very nice and colorful venue. Interesting mix of customers and good service.

Small restaurant hidden away.. felt an urge for Mexican food and decided on this place... upon arrival we thought it might be good! Only 2 waiters, seemed abit out of place. Had a guacamole starter which we asked not to be too spicy, we ate it and our mouths were on fire! Next we had the enchiladas but it smelt... More

Good authentic mexican food, tasty, with a selection for all tastes. A family run restaurant with great ambience and warm, homely feeling. The service was outstanding which is a rare thing in this day and age, Experience from beginning to end was an absolute pleasant and memorable dining experience.

San Julian is one of my favorite places in Cape Town and definitely my favorite Mexican restaurant in South Africa. I am from Mexico and I really appreciate and enjoy the effort they put on their food, everything is freshly prepared in the restaurant and you can really feel these bite by bite. The hand made tortillas truly taste like... More

This is the first time I post a review about a restaurant. I am however compelled to do so now. I tried to resist the compulsion for about six weeks or so, but I simply have to get this off my chest. In summary, the waiter was not presentable. The food was poorly presented. Of a table of four, not... More

A terrible experience from begining to end!!!! Everything we ordred from the food to the margarita's was awful and our waiter looked rough. San Julian one of Cape Town's few authentic Mexican restuants was very dissapointing! I won't be back or reccommend San Julian!!!!!
