Welcome to a taste of Mexico.

Fresh, authentic and seriously tasty Mexican food is served up in a colourful and vibrant atmosphere at La Mexica. There’s a private courtyard, spaces for large groups and cosy corners for more intimate dining.

From light bites to grande dinners, there’s something to suit all tastes. Try tasty tapas dishes like chimichanga (deep-fried flour tortilla burritos) or tacos with pico de gallo and a choice of meat, fish and vegetarian fillings.

For the main course, it’s hard to go past classic fajitas, quesadillas and burritos. But meat lovers must try the Mexican steak with corn and slaw salad or the delicious chargrilled pork rib stack. Little ninos are well catered for with a great kids’ menu offering quesadillas, pizza and nachos.

Don’t forget to check out La Mexica’s exciting programme of events, performances and salsa lessons.
