About
Picasso’s Mexican Taqueria became a reality in White River, South Africa, in 2014. Inspired and modelled on Stratos and Debbie Perakis’ Picasso On The Beach, located in Naxos, Greece, three families joined forces to bring Picasso’s to life in South Africa – the Perakis from Naxos; John & Lyn Davis, who have been visiting Naxos for 20 years and enjoying Picasso’s extraordinary Mexican food for 18 years; and Tracey & Olaf Golitz, who visited Naxos for the first time in 2014 and fell in love with Picasso On The Beach. Picasso’s Mexican Taqueria offers freshly made Mexican food for lunch and dinner, while you sit back and sip our famous Margaritas and watch the sun set over the farmlands.

I had two pizzas in a week, wood fired and generous toppings - both excellent. Also ate the chicken quesedilla which was very dry.

Very good food. Very cool surrounding, the place is alive with nice music and decorations. They have a crazy tequila menu and a nice cocktail menu. Tapas, Mexican food, everything was great Little bad point : we booked a table because it was a busy...night and they choose the worst table to be reserved.More

Wasn't sure what to expect for a Mexican place in White River, but was pleasantly surprised. Outside bar area across the parking lot had live music and great view for sundowners. Tacos had lots of meat and guacamole, but not much else. Some random non-mexican...stuff on the menuMore

This was a family outing, after reading some good reviews we thought it would be a great place to go to. The ambience of the place is extremely relaxed and there is also a beach vibe across the restaurant. We are a family which eats...only chicken, fish and mutton. There was chicken dishes and we decided to try the Tacos, Nachos and Quesidilla. The nachos were great and the chips were definately fresh! However we found the that the chicken used in all 3 meals were the same cubed pieces, there was no difference. This basically meant that we had the same chicken 3 different ways. I would suggest that the restaurant have flavours (hot, mild, medium). Also the chicken would be better if they had coated it in a sauce or have different seasoning for the chicken. Unfortunately we were a bit dissapointed at the place.More

To spoil the only Brazilian in our family, we decided on Picasso's for her birthday lunch. It was a great experience for her, and everybody thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Highly recommended when you're in the Lowveld.
