An explosion of flavour awaits at Mexico Ellerslie!

Inspired by the street foods of Mexico, this colourful cantina offers a feast of shareable dishes, classic cocktails, tequila, Mexican beer and the 10 famous flavours of Frida’s Margaritas.

Focusing on freshness and flavour, their menu changes with the seasons. To start, try the pumpkin and papas croquettes, or the tasty patatas bravas. Ready for your main? Their Mexican fried chicken is a huge hit, or opt for a soft shelled taco, stuffed with pan-fried chimichurri fish.

With a selection of dishes to suit all tastes, there’s something for everyone at Mexico!

Leaving room for dessert has never been so difficult…

Located on Corner Ladies Mile & Main Highway, Ellerslie.

Mexico food is always good. Staff was super friendly.

Staff went above and beyond even to Shazam a song for one of my friends which I thought so kind.

Always go with a bunch of friends and always establish that you will split the bill at the end that’s the best way to enjoy Mexico cause you can pick and choose a lot of options and it works out quite cheap instead of ordering individually.

Stayed all the way till closing.
Great for kids and adults.

Always amazing drinks and plenty of options non alcoholic or alcoholic.

Our experience at Mexico Ellerslie was fantastic! It was very busy on a Sunday, and the service was superb even though it was pretty full. The menu is always packed with variety of delicious items, it is hard to pick just a few things (you'll want it all). The coffee ribs were AMAZING. As was everything else we ordered. We all went home with satisfied taste buds and big smiles all round. Will return again soon. Cheers xx

Just fabulous Mexico, Ellerslie!!! Your menu is packed full of proper Mexico flavours and soooooo fresh. We loved the easy way to mix and combine from the meal, share and taste. Your staff were super. New the menu well were warm and friendly without intruding on our time together in your restaurant. And the restaurant!! Your interior is just fantastic, creates such an awesome vibe, right down to the table set up and decorations. Appreciate the attention to detail with candles already going, small sharing plates, and the range of chilli sauces. We will definitely be back!

Very disappointing.

My friends food(tacos) was served cold, and 20 minutes after mine.

I ordered chicken and a side of rice, which arrived 10 minutes apart. I was told since it is “like tapas”, I should expect the items to be served when ready, like tapas. However, chicken portions and a side of rice is clearly not tapas, and I would expect them to be served together.... and the rice was served fridge cold.

I would not recommend and certainly will not return.

Excellent food! Great variety for vegetarians. The food arrived quickly and was well presented. Vegetarians chimichangas were my favorite! They also provide coloring paper & pens which kept my 2 & 5yr old happy.
The only thing I would request is better lighting in the restaurant, so we can appreciate the beautifully presented food.

Very good food and atmosphere. Service was also very good and friendly; only problem was that it took a while to get our order taken initially. Good atmosphere, and surprisingly busy for a cold and wet midweek evening. nearby restaurants looked to be much less busy. Overall, recommended and we will return.

Came for lunch, very friendly staff. Accommodating slight order dietary changes well. Nice homemade sodas! So many great things to try on the menu. The spicy chicken main was good, but literally just the chicken. Sides ordered as well to make it complete. Would come again to try more dishes
