We made a reservation at Mexico via First Table for my husbands birthday. We had such a lovely dinner. From the ease of booking to being seated promptly with friendly service. The food was so delicious and the kids were kept entertained with the felts and paper which meant my husband and I could relax - Sangria in hand of course. 10/10

A great meal, as always! Mexico is still one of my favourite restaurants. This time I brought a friend who had been avoiding Mexican food for 20 years following a bad experience and she emailed me today to say "It was lovely!!! Like surprisingly really yummy, I’ll have to take my boys there and think I’m officially cured!"

Mexico is one of my FAVOURITE places to eat. I would recommend everybody try out any of the Mexico restaurants. The service is always quality, they offer the best drink options and the food is amazing! They do great fried chicken and their chicken tinga quesadilla is my go to! The music is at a perfect volume, it's not too loud where you have to yell to be heard. Great service, great mood, great food!

Mexico is a restaurant I have discovered in the last month... the food is simply stunning... The short beef rib is unbelievable... so tender and flavorsome... the meat just falls off the bone... The desserts are amazing... I never ever eat desserts and I ate 2 of them... such a pig!!!

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!

Had a terrific lunch here, staff were so friendly and the kids we took had an awesome time. The Al Pastor wrap and beef taco were disappointing and had very hard bits of gristle and crackling in them, neither were eaten by us and one was taken off the bill. We were disappointed to learn that they had put pork crackling in beef taco and nothing mentioned on the menu (a big no-no if you don't eat pork for religious reasons). The churros and margaritas finished everything off perfectly! Overall a great meal and a nice day out.

The Fried chicken and drinks were fantastic.
We were both a bit disappointed with the Quesadillas, quite flavourless and seriously lacking in cheese, cant have a Quesadilla without plenty of cheese.
Didn't realise they do Happy Hour drinks which we partook in, great value for those, yummy Margaritas!

My partner and I went to Mexico for dinner being here before we knew the drill regarding ordering food and seating etc.
Upon entering the premises we were prompted seated and left to decide our drinks and food. We decided on fried chicken, croquetas, two chicken tacos, one pork taco and one lamb quesadilla. The wait for the food was minimal which was awesome. The chicken and croquetas were the clear winners.
Upon leaving we had to wait to pay our bill as the staff member was on her phone at the front counter, which was slightly annoying.
Otherwise everything during this visit went well!
