Servers were very nice and attended to our table well. The food was cooked well and the meat was tender. The drinks were also good. Interior decoration is well done. Only real negative was that the prawn quesadilla lacked prawn and was full of lettuce. The chicken quesadilla on the other hand had a good amount of chicken.

The fried chicken is amazing. The cerviche was a bit fishy - fish wasn’t too fresh. But overall food was really good with nice friendly service

We had a great dinner here yesterday - thank you! Our favourites were the fried chicken (of course!), empanadas, ceviche, bunuelos and cheesecake. The drinks are also yummy - including the virgin ones. Cheers!

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!

Food is definitely good even though it’s not as authentic as you would expect. Serving size is pretty small which is quite uncommon for me. The servers were okay doing their job but doesnt feel accommodating at all, quite uncomfortable in our part. Maybe because it was a holiday.

Delicious food & drink and the food came out at a good pace. The wait staff we're quite busy and although friendly could have been a bit more attentive. We had 2 young children, the really enjoyed the kids menu.

Purchased first table for Mums Birthday lunch and Mexico Ellerslie was a great choice. The service was friendly and the food was great. The dessert Buñuelos was amazing! Who would've thought that sweetcorn ice cream could taste that good! We will definitely be back.

First time at Mexico in Ellerslie and I think it might be my favourite branch! The service was just right and the food was amazing! they had a deal for mondays which gets you a free fried chicken when you buy a carafe of margharita! What a bloody deal. Had a great time! Will definitely be back, first table or not. :)

Delicious! Don’t miss out on the guacamole. So fresh, just perfect. We also shared the fried chicken (without chilli powder) and ceviche (to die for). Soft shell tacos are the perfect serving size and pair beautifully with the tequila tasting trays. We will be back. Thanks for a lovely meal.

Food is delicious more on the spicy side of things. Which was fine for us. Was really surprised when we asked if they serve nachos and the waiter said no that’s Mad Mex Lol Service everyone was lovely just a bit hard to get their attention. Overall a lovely experience.

Great service and great food. I ordered way too much as I assumed the dishes would all be quite small. Turns out I ordered enough for three people! I recommend ordering as you go as the food is quite filling.

The service was great, they had our table reserved and they knew straight away that I booked it through FirstTable and the whole walking in and paying was just a breeze. If anything theybprob needed 1 more person at the front as it got busier but other than that I had a real good experience, everything that we ordered were super tasty.

We had a taco each (pork belly and soft shell crab), fried chicken, croquettes and the chicken quesadilla. All of the food was delicious but we may have over ordered slightly as we left with very full bellies! The melon and mint margarita was delicious and refreshing. Food was very quick to come out which was great.

I had seen great reviews of mexico so that was the first place i wanted to try on first table.
Ellerslie mexico had a very cool vibe to it. . It was child friendly. Their staff gave my daughter kids menu and colouring pens, which was very nice. Food took bit longer to come but taste was very good and overall i was very happy with my overall experiance.

I would try this place again with my friends and hopefully through first table as well. I could try different food which i normally wouldn't have.
