Plum and cinnamon margarita! What the? Soooooo good. Everything we ate here was delicious. Cute premises, lots of parking nearby and food I'm still thinking about the next day. Yum!

Had an amazing time with the family at Mexico! They've just brought out a new winter menu and it's amazing! Definitely worth getting a few starters to share around, I had the fried chicken for my main and it's a classic! They cater to all people whether you like spicy food or not, would 100% recommend trying one of their margaritas as well. Great experience, place was already packed at 6pm so had a great atmosphere, 10/10 would recommend!

Ten out of ten from the minute we walked in, super helpful and friendly staff, and the food was to die for- The mexico fried chicken is a must if you dine here! The kids loved their meals and the colouring sheet & day of the dead mask were a really nice touch. My 6year old exclaimed 'This is the best day of my life!!!" while devouring his Churros. We will 100% be going back!

Great food as always but I feel like you should advertise the fact that this is a shared table. Also, the staff repetitively came over with other peoples food which was a tad annoying.

We took advantage of the half price food and ordered lots of different dishes to share - and couldn't eat it all! The food was delicious, the staff were friendly, and it was great value!

Reasonable price and assortment of food. It was difficult to know who much food you would get with share plates. We ordered 2 small plates and a taco - just enough for us both.

A thumbs up from all 3 of us, the portions were generous (3 tacos was enough for even a big eater for a filling lunch), the drinks were good and service was quick and friendly. It could have been a bit warmer inside on such a cold day though!

Great food and service. Disappointed with the drinks though. Ordered a carafe and was 75% ice. Expensive frozen water!

Great tasting food, not a huge menu but authentic and specialized. Not ideal if you are wanting to have a meal to yourself but great for sharing and groups! Staff were lovely and very attentive. Left with full bellies and not a huge strain on the wallet thanks to First Table!

Always a great experience going to Mexico! Great service and the food is always good. We always go for the Mexican Fried Chicken (soooo good) and the Mexican Horchata is a great drink to accompany what you're having.
Will be back!
