Make it a real family affair for lunch and dinner at Mexico Bayfair, where margaritas flow like water and heartwarming food is made to share between you and your loved ones.

In keeping with their impactful plates, Mexico Bayfair's interior doesn't shy away from colour, quirky accessories, family photos and groovy furnishings. If you're joining them for lunch, it's a bright, popping haven to enjoy your midday meal. At night it transforms into a celebration of light, with playful neon signs beaming around every corner.

Get into the festive spirit with some Mexican specialities like the Mexico fried chicken, braised pork wrap and a veggie version with jackfruit. The mucha carne section will speak to our meat lovers and deliciousness comes in the form of agave and coffee braised ribs, guajillo chicken and an intriguing chocolate braised beef rib. Alternatively, there are the soft shell tacos that are soft in texture but fiery in flavour.

Tongue on fire? Fear not, there are plenty of refreshing cocktails to cool you down. Flavour combinations come in reviving blackberry and coconut, raspberry and yuzu and melon and mint to name a few. If you want to keep it really authentic, look no further than a jug of sangria and the kids can join in the fun with their range of Mexico Sodas.

Best find of our stay at The Mount! Amazing food - the portions of lamp rump and pork belly were generous and perfectly cooked. Great service. Super impressed.

Walking into Mexico was like walking into actual Mexico... The place is amazing. Spent a lot of time looking at the pictures and figures. Then being attended by a waitress with a South American accent... The chairs were comfortable and the table roomy. But I'm my goodness! The food was delicious... I had the pork belly... Totally awesome... I'll return for sure... Thank you Mexico Bayfair for the amazing experience...

Amazing food, authentic Mexico City atmosphere. Our waitress took the time to explain dishes spicy or not. Tequila tasting board is a must try!!! Good Mexican experience.

We had a great evening at Mexico! Every item we ordered from the menu was delicious. The guacamole was fresh and yummy. The polenta chips, the fried chicken, croteques, patata bravas were all very yummy. The cocktails are great too. Overall the food and service is top class and we highly recommend the place for Mexican fare.

We had a fantastic time celebrating my husband’s birthday. There were four of us & we were made most welcome. Sun was spilling into the well decorated venue & we were given a nice window seat. The waitress was super friendly and made great recommendations. Food was delicious & we especially liked the white chocolate cheesecake which was tasty but not too sweet. Pretty authentic guacamole too. Very nice!

Service was exceptional - wait staff were very friendly, courteous and were able to recommend dishes we weren’t familiar with. Food was delicious, fresh and tasty. we had the guacamole that was beautiful! And the Agave braised pork ribs were to die for! We were so full we couldn’t eat it all. Will definitely be back again!

Great atmosphere and lovely staff. Favourite dishes were the Esquites and fried chicken. The braised beef short ribs were cooked to perfection. I don't normally get desserts at Mexican restaurants, but tried the crema catalan and was just like a creme brulee, delicious! Thanks for a wonderful meal, will be back.

A most enjoyable meal experience! Although one of our party could not have spicy food it was absolutely no problem for our waiter to explain other choices and make menu suggestions in a friendly manner. The Margarita won a first time sampler over and food presentation and value for money was outstanding. Great photo opportunities too with the fabulous wall murals. Thank you Mexico Bayfair, we will certainly be returning in the future with our family.

Such a great evening spent here at Mexico- so fantastic having it here in the Bay now. Caught up with a friend and we both thoroughly enjoyed: the decor makes for a great atmosphere, the food was fresh & super tasty and interesting flavours and surprises. The service was splendid. We will definitely be going back many a time. Even without the discount it was reasonably priced !

The same great food and service that's standard of Mexico and our experience at the Bayfair restaurant was no different! Fantastic margaritas and food, standouts were the Eqsuites, tacos and of course fried chicken. Quesadillas fell a bit flat in comparison flavour wise, but were still enjoyable with their sauces.

- dined at Mexico Bayfair on

First time diners. Enjoyed the croquetas, tacos, yummy desserts and a refreshing drink. Staff were superb very helpful explaining the menu and friendly service.

Arrived and the surrounding was amazing. We were shown our table and kindly explained what was through the menu before we ordered. The food was amazing as we had a few different selections of dishes to share between us, plus the staff and manger were so kind and polite it made our experience dinning at Mexico Bayfair one to enjoy and one to look forward to coming back. Well worth having the first table discount. Nice one guys

Treated my mother and nephew to an early valentines dinner at Mexico Bayfair and we had an amazing time!

Love the decor inside, we were greeted as soon as we entered the restaurant. Lovely, friendly staff very attentive.

We ordered the chips and guacamole as a starter. My mother and I shared the beef taco, Mexican fried chicken and pork ribs. My nephew got the chicken quesadilla, which he very much enjoyed!

Chips and guacamole is very delicious!! The beef taco was very tasty and the Mexican fried chicken is surely not to be missed!!! The pork ribs were a bit too dry for us, for the ones we were able to eat, it tasted yummy!

We very much enjoyed our time here, will definitely bring my sisters for a taco night!!

Good Mexican Restaurant. Took my son in law for his birthday celebration and we were not disappointed.
We had a carafe of Margarita, plates of ribs, chicken wings, broccoli and mushrooms. All were well presented and tasty. The chilli sauce was delicious and we were happy we could buy a bottle to take home. For dessert we had delicious churros.
The waitress was excellent, bubbly, helpful and attentive. The Manager did not come across as very friendly though, which is a shame as the decor is great and a friendly welcome would complete it. He seemed annoyed that we had come in the wrong door because we entered from the street and not the mall.
The food arrived very quickly.
The highlight for us was the ribs, the great waitress service and the delicious pomegranate Margarita.

Managed to tee up a lunch with a couple of BFFs on Friday at midday. We had a couple of shared starters, two pulled pork tacos, one vegetarian dish, a side salad AND a jug of delicious sangria all for just over $60 with the First Table discount. All the food was tasty and the service friendly and attentive (without being smothering). We will definitely go back to Mexico Bayfair!

Was a legit Mexican food experience! We really really enjoyed our selves. Only downside is that the menu didn’t label mains and entrees and we ended up ordering all entrees. So we were left feeling a tad hungry. Otherwise it was really good! The food we did order tasted amazing.

We enjoyed having dinner at Mexico. The atmosphere is fun and energetic. The food is really nice- however you need at least two meals to fill up so probably would be too expensive for us without First Table. Some of the staff are more friendly than others but over-all we would recommend to others- provided they use First Table or a voucher.
