Venue says This Christmas, party like the Mexicans do! Join us for a for one of two unforgettable festive menus, available for parties of 5 to 55.

An unassuming taco specialist on Soho’s Poland Street.

‘The trouble with some London taquerias,’ explained our waiter, ‘is that portions can be a bit small. We try to be generous.’ That’s Corazon for you. An honest, unassuming spot at the unsexy end of Poland Street, it offers hospitality in the old-school sense, sending you off into the cold night air with that warm feeling of having been well looked after, with both belly and soul full and with your wallet refreshingly unviolated.

The look is ‘cosy first restaurant’: plain, simple, sincere. Walls are whitewashed and unadorned, the floor a herringbone parquet, tables of the wipe-clean type. The lights were a little bright, sure, but there was a lively, laidback buzz to the place. Relaxed. Happy. In the peach-and-avocado loo, they were playing ‘California Soul’.

And ‘generous’ their tacos are. The ‘baja fish’ option was so replete, you could barely pick it up. Built on a base of all-the-rage ‘blue’ tortilla (more the colour of grey stone-washed denim circa 1990), it was piled high with two kinds of shredded cabbage – bringing sweetness, tang and crunch – plus a deliciously piquant chipotle mayo. On top, the crowning glory: a fat slab of golden beer-battered fish with a meaty, juicy centre. Also excellent was the carne asada: another blue corn tortilla, this time smeared with smooth avocado, then loaded with slivers of pink pickled onion, shredded lettuce and succulent morsels of orange-and-soy-marinated hanger steak.

Away from the tacos, there are a few other don’t-miss, comfort food options. Like the esquites. They make this traditional sweetcorn-and-cheese street food snack by grilling whole cobs of corn, then stripping off the blistered, blackened kernels, adding dry spices, chilli mayo (made with aromatic guajillo chillis), a hit of lime and crumbled cow’s milk cheese. It’s a sweet, smoky, cheesy, moreish mess. For afters, be sure to get the coconut flan: it’s unashamedly syrupy and decadent, just like you’d get in Mexico. It’s even enough to convert the most ardent of coconut-haters (once they’ve recovered from the sugar hit).

There were some low points, though: the too-salty crab on a tostada (the tuna option is better, though in truth, neither is as good as the tacos) and an excessively dry dish of rice and beans. Corazon is by no means perfect. But its benevolent approach to portion sizes, coupled with genial service, is sure to win this humble spot plenty of fans.

Corazon says
Corazon is a relaxed Mexican restaurant tucked behind the bustle of Oxford Street, in the heart of Soho. It is the passion project of couple Laura Sheffield & Paul Daniel. Corazon’s menu is full of soulful, unfussy Mexican food served up with a dollop of LA sunshine, and set to a vintage beat.

Tacos feature proudly at the heart of the menu. All the tortillas are made freshly in house, visibly in the dining room. Alongside this, Corazon offers a selection of shareable botanas (snacks), tostadas, and shareable platos mayores (bigger plates).

A concise drinks list offers the very best margaritas, other cocktails, and aguas frescas – all made entirely from fresh onsite. On the weekends Corazon offers London’s finest Mexican brunch, serving huevos rancheros, chilaquiles, and a selection of breakfast tacos.

Laura, a native Texan via NYC, designed and opened Corazon, combining her love of Mexican food with her experience in some of the UK’s most celebrated pubs and restaurants. Paul, with 20 years cooking experience in London’s best kitchen, leads the brigade; he developed Corazon’s menu over several journeys through Mexico’s distinct culinary regions, and drives up the California Coast.

I can't believe it took me so long to try this place! A really lovely experience and some pretty darn good food!


My friend and I came for a girls night and shared the following: 


1. Totopos, Guacamole, Salsas - A great way to start off the meal with some homemade tortilla chips with fresh guacamole and two different types of salsa. The guacamole was chunky, which we both prefer and it was kept simple with the garnishes. The salsas were great because they were genuinely spicy and they went well on top of some our other dishes. I also really liked how the tortilla chips were clearly homemade and not greasy to touch. 


2. 3 Cheese Quesidilla - An interesting starter, as it came on blue corn tortillas, which we found amusing! They were pretty to look at and very cheesy. 


3. Baja Fish Tacos - My favourite kind of tacos, with battered fish! The batter on these were super crispy and I could see the flakes of fish. It was garnished with two types of cabbage and some tasty chipotle sauce. These went great with that extra salsa, to give it an extra kick!


4. Mole Fries - What a treat! I loved how thick and flavourful the mole sauce was! It had this rich undertone taste of dark chocolate, which I adored. It went so well with the fries and some melted cheese on top, perfection! 


To go along with our food, we both got the Peach Margarita. This was super peach-y in taste, thick, and I liked how it melted gradually. It kept the drink going throughout our meal. Overall, the service was quick and good. We didn't have a reservation but we arrived before the dinner crowds and in the end, didn't have the give up our table that quickly as the table after us had cancelled. It's a small joint but I liked how there was bar seats as well as tables and chairs. 


I went to this place based on Timeout top 10 in which it rightfully deserves it's place!!


The atmosphere is sooo warming and lively. The Food is incredible with a strong mix of flavours and fresh produce.


What made it for me was the service, so friendly and made the best recommendations :)

I was lucky enough to try a tasting menu here recently and so with a real overview of what's on offer I can wholeheartedly recommend Corazon. Great care has been taken in ensuring authenticity in the recipes and your dining experience as a whole. An equal amount of passion is put into creating every freshly prepared dish, which you can see and taste, and will likely keep you coming back for more.
Across the range of dishes while providing a nice varied choice and a superb range of flavours each dish was consistent in that it was super fresh and beautifully presented. My personal favourites were the Carne Asada and Barbacoa Tacos, in the former steak was perfect, and I enjoyed the addition of the liver in the latter, Along with good beer and wine selection, they also have many unique margarita options on offer.On the dessert front, be sure to save space, it would be criminal to miss out as they are superb! I tried the coconut flan and the Oaxaca bean chocolate cake I have to say they were both exceptional and by their standard, I'm sure you can't go wrong whatever you choose.

Along with the great food, the general dining experience is enhanced by the quaint vintage decor and ambience which strikes just the right notes. I'll definitely be back soon.

I was treated to a taste of Mexican food in London. The tuna started is well worth a mention! The taco's are amazing! The fish is great, but the steak were my favourite, and I couldn't get enough! Normally I wouldn't have dessert in a restaurant but opt for another venue, however the chocolate cake and especially the fan are memorable! There seems to be very little seating, but there are specials when sitting at the bar. The menu was well thought out and portions are lush. Unfortunately, there isn't much to entice a vegetarian. The one we did try was not nice at all. Definitely worth giving it a try!!!

Very well hidden in one of London’s most busy areas, Soho, Corazón is a real little gem serving delicious and authentic Mexican food. I’ve definitely walked past it without paying much attention but when I got to try out their excellent menu and now I know what’s in this beautiful little restaurant. I loved everything I tried from their colourful and creative menu, especially the tostada with the tuna, the fish tacos and the coconut flan. They have a great selection of cocktails too - Mexican style with a funky twist. The service was excellent and the ambiance of the place was just great. Apparently they also do brunch so I really want to try! Can’t wait to go back! Can't recommend this place enough. Unpretentious Mexican cuisine, authentic and creative flavours, cute decor and very positive vibes in this little Soho eatery.

According to the Spanish phrase, "Barriga llena, corazón contento.” - When the belly is full the heart is happy! That's what the owner said to us and she is right!

Mexican has finally gone mainstream in the capital, but despite the plethora of drop-in and take-away burrito bars there still remains a lack of proper sit down Mexican restaurants.

Corazón helps fill that gap with its original take on Mexican with an LA twist, featuring salsas, tostadas and tacos in a relaxed but certainly sit-down environment.

With plenty to choose from and dedicated service that went above and beyond what you’d expect, the Carne Asada (steak with a chipotle, orange and soy marinade, pickled onions and avocado) and Baja Fish (beer battered haddock with red & white pickled cabbage and chipotle mayo) were the stand-out dishes. Any loose sauce that dropped onto my plate was quickly mopped up with nachos and the complimentary hot sauce that’s waiting on every table.

Great for a night out with friends when you want Mexican in a slightly more formal setting, just be prepared to get a little messy.

Very good tacos in both traditional and more inventive way , lovely food with fresh ingredients which made everything very tasty !

Contramar Tostada is my absolute favorite on the menu, marinated yellowfin tuna with chipotle mayo and avocado . Disappointed with the veggie options, but very pleased Esquites on the side : grilled crispy sweetcorn with chile, mayo and cheese.

Great vibes and very querky atmosphere .

Another hidden gem just in the heart of the city centre! Oh how much I love discovering this kind of places!! Corazon really know the way to your heart (and stomach!). Amazing and authentic Mexican food is served in this tiny American-styled diner, in a very cosy and friendly ambience, hosted by Laura, the owner and manager of this place. Not only they make amazing jasmine tea frozen margaritas, paired with totopos (nachos), guacamole and chilli salsa, only to start, but all their plates, ideally “para compartir” are infused with the care and commitment that these people put into what they do. Outstanding is the veggie taco with roasted butternut and squash, mushroom and queso fresco- deliciously creamy! As a side, I totally recommend to go for the Esquites, grilled sweetcorn with mayo and lime, addictive! Corazon is a great spot for a chilled out dinner with friends- especially if you like sharing as much as I do!! Nevertheless, you can also pick your own plate among the varied à la carte options. Thanks Laura, you are an example of doing your job with passion!

Doing my usual google the menu beforehand so that I can prep my tastebuds, and I was so excited to find this traditional mexican taco menu! For only being open 13 months I was amazed at how busy this little spot just off Oxford street was on a Monday night.. Then all the food came out and I quickly understood why it is so busy. The flavours were so fresh and delicious, and everything was served with a smile and friendly service. I cannot recommend the fish and lamb tacos enough, my mouth is watering just thinking about them. I am not much of a fresh tuna fan, but I gave the tuna starter a go and it too was scrumptious. As I am on Dry Jan I couldn't enjoy a salt rimmed margherita, so the staff suggested one of their iced teas instead which was a perfect blend of flavors. On my way out they then gave me a card to come back in February for a free margharita! And last but certainly not least, the dessert. Oh my word. I have a big sweet tooth, and chocolate is normally always my go to, and whilst the chocolate cake was absolutely divine, the coconut flan was irresisitable. We were sharing it across the table and I wanted to order another just for me it was so delicious! Cannot wait to come back here - it will easily be one of my new favorite spots, and definitely worth battling the oxford street traffic for.

A lovely little restaurant a short walk from Oxford Circus tube station. It's crisp, clean 70's decor is super inviting for a date night or an evening with friends.


I started off with a Frozen Jasmine Tea Margarita which was to die for! I was able to try a selection of the following Tacos;


CARNITAS

HORACIO

BAJA FISH

ESQUITES

The Baja Fish tacos are by far my favourite and I could easily sit and eat a couple plate full's of them! The owner of the restaurant came to speak to us and told us about the idea behind the restaurant. I'd highly recommend this place if you ever fancy some yummy Mexican food!

Tastemaker

It was Monday night mid January, but Corazon was beating full strength. The look of place is simple, as is the food, nothing too overcomplicated, but the combination of flavours and comfort they bring make them special.


We started the night with usual Mexican nibbles: selection of corn tortilla crisps and salsas of three strengths, which were followed by tacos of all sorts of colours and combinations.  

Baja deep fried fish was so good we had to order second round. The only veggie: butter squash, queso fresco and coriander was for me equally satisfying. But my absolute favourite was lightly pickled tuna with avocado, sprinkled with deep fried micro leaves.


The sides we tried were fried corn with cheese and exceptionally good slow made from pickled cabbage, carrots, green chilli and pomegranate. It was all dipped in a yogurt - delicately creamy, not too heavy on the palate.


The accompanying Jasmine tea margarita was good, but the floral aromas were somehow lost.


Hearing about the coconut flan at the beginning of the visit I made sure I had space left for that bad guy and it was divine. But the chocolate cake with choc bean from Oaxaca was one of the best I’ve ever had, the flavour was so distinct, apparently it's all in the origin of the bean.

This laid back spot ran by a husband and wife clearly have their faithful followers and I think they got quite a few new ones that night. Look out for their special food nights (the next one involves goat tasting).

Corazon – really did capture a bit of my heart!


Literally located in the heart of Soho, we were welcomed with a warm atmosphere, California soul-style music, and an amazing buzz. This is one of those rare places which is busy, but tables aren't crammed together, giving it a great amount of space. Service was also so friendly and attentive, and they were happy to offer recommendations on each dish.

Now for the food! The owners were inspired by the lack of authentic, simple Mexican cuisine in London and so, opened Corazon. What's really nice is that one of the owners is also the head chef. The compact menu is split into sections that also include a taco menu – which my friends and I excitedly went for! The portions were actually really generous, with topping to tortilla ratio being on point. My favourites were the classic pork Carnitas, which were simply delicious, and the breaded Baja fish, plated with a chipotle mayo, which was one of the best I've ever tried. Some of the lesser known dishes on offer included the Esquites – a tasty bowl of sweetcorn, lime and cheese (really, what is not to love!) and the flavoursome Contramar – yellowfin tuna and chipotle mayo on a crispy tostada. The final highlight of the meal came in the form a flourless Oaxacan spiced chocolate torte topped with creme fraiche – this was incredible!! 


Overall, Corazon was a great experience, such a chilled, happy vibe, and one that's perfect for a 'treat yourself' kind of dinner with friends, as you really want to try a bit of everything!

Looking for a place where people put their hearts into the food they serve? This is literally it! With passionate owners, they make food the proper way here, from scratch and with quality ingredients. Inspired by baja California mexican cuisine, don't expect your usual tex mex grub full of sauces and cheese that masks the flavours. Here you will get the real deal, served in a lovely environment, and perfect to share. With 3 tacos per person being the recommended amount, be sure to have fun around things like the butternut squash taco, the tuna & avocado tostada, as well as the carnitas option, filled with a very flavourful and sliced well grilled steak. Wash it down with a signature grapefruit margarita, and be merry!

A lovely little restaurant a short walk from Oxford Circus tube station. It’s classy decor gave a very good first impression and greeters as well as service were very nice! Their floral margarita was great as well as their non alcoholic drink options. My favourite thing on the whole menu was the tuna tostada starter - I could have just had a whole meal of those! As far as the tacos, I tried the vegetarian squash ones and the fish tacos. The fish was a very good sized piece and the taco was delicious. I was, however, disappointed by the veggie taco. The squash flavour was ok - but it was topped with roasted chestnut pieces. These were small and very hard causing me to fear for my teeth’s safety in subsequent bites. Moving on to dessert, we are back to wonderful! I tried both the flan and the chocolate cake. The cake was so luscious and gooey! However, the flan won it for me! Such an amazing flavour, I was distraut to be sharing it. Overall, I would very much recommend. While you might not think it, a plate of 3 tacos was plenty for dinner as well, which I was impressed with.

tastemaker

This little gem of a joint is located just off of Oxford Street and offers up gourmet and authentic Mexican food, an economical price and trashy (in a good way) 70s decor. I'm invested! 


Personally, I had never tried soft shell (now I know, these are actually authentic) tacos before, these were not only 10x easier to eat but the flavour combinations were sensational - and the ingredients so fresh too! (HONESTLY, YOU NEED THE STEAK TACO IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW).


It was quite obvious from the get-go that the restaurant was a real labour of love. From the curated playlist to the decor that flowed throughout the restaurant (from the cutlery to the sink taps in the toilets), nothing was overlooked nor was there a detail out of step. And when you consider their location (just off of Oxford Str no less) with the price of a meal and quality of good, it really can't be beaten. 


I was told that their brunch is a sellout so I will definitely be heading back to try that out!

The small Mexican restaurant located on Poland street in Soho has been open for only over a year and looks more like a cute diner than a Mexican place when walking past it or first walking in. Its very warm owner, Laura, is originally from Texas and grew up on tex-mex but decided with her partner – who is the co-owner and chef of the restaurant - to travel around California and Mexico and discover what traditional Mexican food is all about.

One of the things, on top of the warm welcome from everyone working there, that made the atmosphere so happy and warm was the awesome funky and rock playlist going on in the background – even if a bit too loud at times.

If you are a margarita fan, this place is for you. I am not a fan myself but the people I was having dinner with had some and really enjoyed them.

Now for the main bit: FOOD. There are plenty of tapas to choose from. Here the few that I got to try: raw tuna tostada that was very popular amongst our group, orange beef tacos that I personally really liked, liver and lamb tacos and my absolute favourite one, the pulled pork tacos. I loved that there was coriander in almost everything. Just cannot get enough of that herb. There are of course also some veggie ones but I didn’t get to try them. For sides, we tried some warm sweetcorn dish and coleslaw and cannot complain about either.

All the food is made fresh there and you really can tell.

If you still have belly space left after the many tapas, I would really recommend trying the Wahacan chocolate cake that’s simply incredible! It has a taste of saffron almost and is served with a big dollop of delicious cream on top. A wonder!

Corazon is a strong contender of Wahaca even though my preference food-wise still lies with the latter. The atmosphere though and the fact that it’s privately owned by owners who work there and put all their heart in it makes the difference and I would happily go back soon.

tastemaker

Any place that’s so dedicated to margaritas that they press their own grapefruits daily for the house blend, is a-okay in my books!

They are the perfect accompaniment to the Baja fish tacos with smoky chipotle sauce and the esquitas- a grilled sweetcorn side with soft cows milk cheese and lime.

Finish off with the chocolate cake made a hint of cinnamon and maybe another margarita...or two.

Tastemaker

Great taco spot just off of Oxford Street. Service was friendly but unfortunately quite slow.  We waited over an hour for our food to come out.  The food itself was good, the fish tacos are absolutely stand out! The best thing is to get a mix of dishes and share between the group.  This allowed us to try almost all the menu between us! Perfect for when out with people with different dietary requirements also.  I will be back again soon, perhaps at a slightly quieter time, to enjoy some more fish tacos! 


By far the best tacos in London. From the welcome to the moment you leave, the service is proper old school hospitality. You want to stay forever drinking margaritas and eating your way through the menu. Perfect spot for shopping on Oxford Street and then recovering afterwards. Baja fish tacos and esquites are a must.

My husband and I first stopped by here for drinks and dinner last Friday night. We sat at the bar and ordered a few drinks which were served by a pleasant and conversational bartender named Terri. The margaritas I had were strong and quite tasty though went too quick for £8+ a pop! We then ordered the ceviche which was served quickly, as tiny, round plantain crisps with a small bowl of diced ceviche. Quite tasty and interesting presentation as I have never seen chips or ceviche so tiny! But it was very cute. Then I got the veg Horacio tacos with butternut squash and my husband got the Carnitas. I was really torn on whether to get the Horacio, veg or Guv'nor option with prawns but was glad I chose Horacio as the squash was roasted just right and the crema and toppings on it added the right creaminess and spice. I scarfed the two tacos down and only wish I had originally upgraded the order to three as I was still a wee bit hungry after. My husband enjoyed his lamb tacos as well.

Service was friendly and efficient, both rarities in London! The only catch, hence my dinking a star, is the front window was open for the pleasant early evening, and that would have been fine except for the two smokers outside. So the smell drifted over to where we were sitting by the bar. We complained and told the manager but she said she couldn't do anything so we just moved a bit further inside the bar. But really disappointing the restaurant values smokers more than nonsmokers.

I ate here again Monday night with a friend and then had the Guv'nor tacos and camote as a side. Oh man the tacos are DELICIOUS and loaded with prawns and tiny shrimp. The crema and cheese atop just complement the soft tortilla perfectly. With the camotes, the portion was perfect. However, the camotes were only OK; they were a bit dry and not as tasty as the tacos so I asked for extra crema which the friendly server quickly brought over. For dessert my friend and I shared the fruit salad which comes with a lovely sorbet sprinkled with a tad of spice. A great palate pleaser.

I can't wait to come back for brunch!

tastemaker

Went on a Tuesday night and it was very busy so best to book. Fish tacos were for me the best dish of the menu. Good Mexican food but given everything I read about the place I was expecting something more outstanding.

Tastemaker

Tacos, ah tacos. I have an eternal hunger for them that I seem to spend extravagant amounts of time trying to fulfil; my all-time favourites come from a perfect, Sunset Strip dive bar called Pinches, closely followed by ex-Noma pastry chef Rosio Sanchez’s new venture ‘Hija de Sanchez’ in the perhaps less-obvious-for-Mexican-food setting of Copenhagen. Here in London, Taqueria in Westbourne Grove has long held my heart but I’m constantly on the lookout for new spots that’ll give me my fix of soft homemade tacos filled with juicy meat, spicy vegetables & squidgy cheese so new spot Corazon was always going to be high on my ever-inflating-like-Violet-Beauregard, culinary hit list.

Boasting a great central location – halfway down Poland St which is just off Oxford St – means that I now have an actual reason to gird my loins and do battle down London’s busiest street, something which I’d normally walk twelve miles out of the way to avoid. The vibe inside is bright, clean & fresh, dressed in shades of white, green & grey with a decent sized bar at which to perch if you’re dining on the run. The space is big enough to make you feel that there’s likely to be quite a buzz when busy but not so vast that the back wall of the place seems an only-tackleable-by-Mo-Farah distance away. Service was super friendly and genuine throughout (perhaps the bonus of dining only a few weeks into opening but hopefully a long term characteristic) and plates were delivered with a smile and a timely check back that everything was ok.

The menu is small but there’s enough on it that’s both familiar and interesting to convince you this is a place that knows its stuff; I’m not a fan of TGI’s length menus that take an hour just to scan only to find that there’s so much stuff on it, I’m left with some serious doubts that the kitchen know what they’re doing. If you order only one thing – not something I’ve ever been able to do myself when eating out – make sure it’s the Sikil Pak, a Mayan spiced pumpkin seed dip served with jicama & cucumber. It might resemble the ‘before’ in an 90’s makeover movie but it’s absolutely delicious. Silky & rich with a slight oiliness from the seeds and a refined earthiness, it doesn’t taste like any dip I’ve had before but it tastes a heck of a lot like a dip I’ll be having again and again now.

You’ll find this place is free from enchiladas and fajitas but heralds tostadas and tacos that are served two per portion with prices starting at £6 and topping out at £11. Carnitas tacos were dripping-down-to-your-elbow fantastic and Carne Asada’s blue corn tortillas added a nice flavour to well-cooked meat that had been marinaded in orange & soy as well as flavour-du-jour, chipotle. The beer battered Baja fish will probably draw me back for a return visit (well, that and the marshmallow frosted Tres Leches cake…I’m only human after all) whilst a trip here over the festive period gives you the chance to indulge in a parsnip purée & Brussels sprouts taco you’re unlikely to find elsewhere. Although there’s a nice selection of other dishes including Pozole Rojo – a pork shoulder stew – and Esquites – a herbed corn dish – the coffee & ancho chile braised short rib was a little underwhelming in flavour. I was hoping for a real kick of intensity however it was a more mellow in taste than I imagined.

Wash it all down in the evening with a beer, a margarita or a cocktail – Trump’s Tower was appropriately current – or reclaim your lunch break, come at 12pm and order horchata. This is an excellent take on the traditional Mexican drink which is made with rice & almond milk and agave and comes heavy-on-the-cinnamon & served deliciously cold.

I’m not sure this is the place I’d head to for a long dinner over a pitcher of cocktails in the evening – the thought of having to fight my way out and up Oxford St again afterwards puts me off a bit TBH – but I’d absolutely come back for a well timed, well priced, well flavoured lunch and if you want a respite from the crowds outside and a little taste of sunnier, spicier climes, I’d urge you to do the same.

It's easy to walk past Corazon and not notice its unassuming exterior. Unfortunately, a hidden gem this is not. There's nothing wrong with Corazon - they serve up a tasty Horchata and decent tacos, but there's nothing really special about this joint that would keep you coming back over and over, whether its the regular sweet deals a chain like Wahaca offers or the unbelievably tasty tacos from Breddos Tacos. It's a pretty normal Mexican place that happens to be located in a convenient, central location. If they developed something special on their menu or really took a risk to stand out, it might work in their favour, but until then, they're gonna have to work a lot harder to lure me back again.
