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…

Every dish was fresh & tasty, there was a delay between our initial dishes and the rest (beef short rib) but it was worth the wait. Will definitely be back!

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

Our waiter was awesome, and as one of us was a vegetarian he helped to make some good choIces!
We also shared a cocktail jug, and as their were many choiCES he guided us making a good pick.

Service was quite slow (took a while for us to be seated and to order) and we were sitting near the pay station and saw many people had to wait a few minutes before anyone would come to the station. Other than that, the food came out quickly and hot. The chicken quesadilla was a tad dry, but the churros were devine and so were the sodas (we ordered the white cola and pineapple and orange). Really enjoyed the atmosphere

Mexico is a favourite of ours! We always have a great time and fantastic food. We were served by I think the manager, who was amazing. Unfortunately we seemed to be forgotten by our waitress but the manager looked after us! Fried chicken is a must and so is the white chocolate cheesecake for dessert. A great birthday dinner!

Has a great time and enjoyed exploring the menu that went beyond the usual fajitas and tacos! The highlight of the experience for us was the Mexican buenelos dessert!

One small feedback, could there be better lighting as it was hard to read the menus or alternatively print the menu on a lighter shade paper

Yummy food. Good service. Did put us at a table adjoined to another table where the patrons there were speaking very loudly and we couldn’t speak privately. Fun lunch.

Great atmosphere and friendly staff. One small let down was the pumpkin seeds which was used in one of our dishes was off. Its often caused when seeds and nuts being kept for a long period of time and not being tightly sealed in a container. Nevertheless, the manager was apologetic and did not charge us for that dish.

The restaurant is very easy to find with plenty of nearby parking. The atmosphere is really good, casual and comfortable and the service is prompt and friendly. There’s a bar section which would be good for large groups to meet first - the wall graphics are great!
We enjoyed the experience very much and would certainly return

amazing night at Mexico. The staff were incredibly busy but gracious and friendly despite the pressure. They were wonderful.
The food blew us away! The esquites is divine and the fried chicken never leads you astray, we also each had a taco, the pork belly and churros. Wonderful food. We will return!

Food was great and the wait staff were really friendly, I do feel however they may have been short staffed on the night we were dining as we did not see much of the wait staff at all - we had to call them over most of the time and the drinks were painfully slow to arrive. I have been to Mexico ellerslie a few times before without first table and not had this issue so feel it may be a one off however it would of been great if the server had just said 'I'm really sorry we are short staffed tonight so may be slow on drinks' because we ordered another round of drinks before dessert and we had finished eating dessert and they still hadn't arrived.. Had we known this we would of probably just not bothered to order more. Overall good meal though in terms of food and pricing, pork belly and tacos were definately the highlight

We had a great time at Mexico. Starting with some delicious margaritas, we ordered a variety of dishes. The spice in the patatas blew my socks of (in a good way) and the chicken quesadillas were out the gate. On top of that our server was a LOL and a half, great service. 10/10

We would go back! Its unusual for mum/dad to get a date night without 4 kids in tow. We really enjoyed the food - it was amazing and came out of the kitchen really fast. The service was probably some of the best - quick to attend, got the orders right, offered specials, cleared empty plates and most of all they were happy.
