Tilting Heads Taco Café and Margarita Bar, situated in Stanley Street, Richmond Hill Port Elizabeth, opened their doors to the public on 19 October 2016 and has flourished in their short time of operation. Aiden Pienaar, the owner of Tilting heads, had a vision to take the innocent Mexican Taco and giving it a much needed face lift by introducing new fillings and frozen margaritas on tap. This eatery specializes in Mexican street food and uses the freshest and most organic ingredients where possible.


Tilting Heads is a very exclusive 30 seater restaurant, with a rustic urban look, with a little bit of modern looks thrown in for good measure. The lighting is warm and cozy which naturally gives it a little bit of a more upmarket but relaxed feel. Mexican music playing in the background sets the mood for either a fun date, relaxed lunch or a “let your hair loose” kind of dinner.


The food is quite a spectacular affair, with their new take on the taco by introducing slow cooked Beef, Lamb and Pork, Char-grilled Chicken and Fresh Vegetarian options, it’s definitely a step in the right direction. Tilting Heads has a variety of Mexican inspired dishes featured on their menu, such as, Nachos with Meat and Jalapeño Poppers, Crispy Calamari Taco served with fresh Avocado, Pickled Chilli Aioli and blistered Chilli and Churros with 54% Dark Chocolate Sauce just to name a few.
