Shhhhh El Silencio doesn't exist - we don't have a website or phone number but you can message us on instagram: @el_silencio_fff
Our address is; Find the SECRET DOOR [inside] Pablo Picante Burrito Bar, 4 Clarendon Market, Dublin 2 xx

At El Silencio we specialise in Tacos & Margaritas with a dive-bar ambience. The music is loud and the drinks are strong ¡Andale!

Our tacos use gf corn tortillas from Balam - a Mexican food business set up by Eduardo and his team in Dublin. We have an excellent array of plant-based options too including the Vegan Prison Tray.

Our margaritas (11 different combinations and counting) use only the best 100% agave tequila and mezcal.

We don't mess around with wine/whiskey/vodka/dessert/coffee - just margaritas & tacos cabrones!

    Nice setting. The music is quite loud, making conversation occasionally tricky. We samples a number of the tacos- some were quite tasty, but the majority were a bit bland and lacking the usual zest and flavour you expect in Mexican cuisine.

    El Silencio has great Mexican food and delicious margaritas. The menu is quite short but everything we tried was delicious and very reasonably priced. Great vegan and vegetarian options too. Service was friendly and there was a great atmosphere as long as you can find the door!

    We went for Taco Tuesday & it did not disappoint. Both the food and cocktails were delicious. The food was good value as the tacos were on offer, however the drinks were a little on the expensive side. Will definitely return!

    Great venue. Great staff. Great range of Margaritas. But food is average enough. More a drinking venue with food for soakage rather than a dinner/eating venue.

    We loved el silencio, it was our first time there and we enjoy it a lot, the margaritas were amazing and the person who took the order on Sunday evening was so lovely! He told us that he is Chilean and he was very considerate with us. We strongly recommend this place and we will come back soon.

    Had a fab night and Ada was an amazing and attentive server! Was so chatty and informative on the drinks and was interested in making sure my partner and I were having a good time. Atmosphere and music only added to our experience and truly felt like we found a hideaway from Dublin for the evening. The food is tapas styled but perfect as we had eaten earlier on in the day but the options on the menu enticed us enough that we had to try some bits! 10/10 would recommend for a date night or evening with pals!
