About Sons of Baja

Dear diners, for same-day bookings after 4.30pm, please call the restaurant directly.

Baja California isn’t as renowned as its neighbour to the north, it has to be said, but there is a lot to be said in favour of their food. It takes in all the classics of Mexican cuisine, alongside their native regional styles, which incorporate more Mediterranean influences and some Asian flavours too, taken from the nearby United States. Sons of Baja offer a taste of this unique part of the world in the heart of North Hobart on Elizabeth Street, with a menu chocka with Mexican favourites, tacos and churros to eat and cocktails, craft beers and ciders to drink. When you’re looking for a taco treat in Hobart, then there can only be one option: not south of the border, down Mexico way, and more north of the city, Sons of Baja style.

The service was great and the food was really good. We really appreciated the fact that the staff were helpful in organising take away containers for the food we didn't finish

Great food, good quantities, good variety. A bit noisy ( concrete, glass etc). Service was pleasant but we had to ask about some of our orders. We would return!

This was not our first visit to Sons of Baja and it certainly won't be our last! We love the way that we are able to order the food as we want it and not have to put the whole meal order in at once. The food and the service is outstanding, we can highly recommend a visit to Sons of Baja.

Love the Tuesday $5 Tacos! Yummy food and a good atmosphere. Everything ran smoothly including booking online. Would happily recommend and go back again sometime.

Food was good and well priced, service was good but the venue is very noisy and we almost had to shout at each other to have a conversation which when we were only a table of three is not very pleasant. The owner? did ask us how our evening was going and we told him the same thing. He said they are looking into ways to lessen the noise issues but I'm afraid until that happens we will be dining elsewhere so we can eat and have a chat without having to compete with 60 or so other voices to the same time.

I knew the prices had gone up for the cerviches and share plates by about $5 with their new menu that came out a few months ago. Pretty disappointed that dishes have now also shrunk considerably in size. Tacos were still however. Mead is also not available in different varieties any more and is served with fruit, ice and mint like it used to be. Asked for a table in corner as knew it gets pretty noisy. Was given that but the restaurant was pretty much filled around us and the other half was empty. Was uncomfortably noisy. Won't go back, except maybe for tacos.

A great dining experience. Good service and tasty food. Ordered a selection of plates to share as they are smaller and gave us a variety of flavour experiences. Each plate was delicious. Good selection of alcohol as well. Vegan friendly too!

Lovely atmosphere, great service, good prices. Only small complaint would be people that ordered tacos had them all come out together on a tray and we had to pick through them all to figure out which one was which.

We were not advised by the waitress when ordering that is was tapas and that our orders were to share even though she confirmed everyones order when we had all ordered. Meals came out all over the place some people were eating while others weren't, there was a dessert missed off the order and we had to chase up drinks. very disappointing

Great original flavours combined with a good range of craft beer on tap make this restaurant a little gem. Don't forget to try the cooked as you order corn chips with the dips and the sangrias.

Amazing Tacos!! In fact everything was great. Love authentic Mexican food like this. You'll never eat "Tex-Mex" again after eating here. Ten out of ten for food, drinks and staff.

Food was tasty and they allowed us to stick around to keep talking without hassling us to move which was very much appreciated. But the waiter must have been new because he couldn't answer basic questions about the menu and stuffed up our order.

The service, the food and especially the drinks were fantastic. Lost 1 point for bringing my husband's meal out before mine, he'd finished his meal before mine arrived. Oh...and dessert was delish!

Great mix and variety of food. Service was very good. One problem was extreme sun along the window side and there were no blinds. This meant everyone was very hot and had blaring sun in our eyes.

Great food and atmosphere. Service very satisfactory. Although the restaurant was fairly noisy our table of eight was still able to talk together quite easily.

Food was tasty, but the service wasn't great. Menu is confusing, two tacos for $15 gives you the impression that when you order tacos you get two... Not one.
