We had a great time at this eatery with heaps of atmosphere (although some interesting music choices (the Eagles etc) that didn’t quite fit the “day-of-the-dead” decor.
We had lots of shared plates and particularly liked the chimichanga and the cauliflower croquettes. The vegan dessert was a chocolate sponge with a tart plum sorbet which was pretty amazing! The soda’s (Made on site) were great! There were a couple of dishes that didn’t quite hit the mark but overall we were pretty happy. Thank you.

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!

Fantastic food!
We had to share a table of 4 with another couple which was pretty awkward particularly when there was plenty of other empty tables :-s

As always Mexico was delicious to dine at! Great vegetarian and vegan option too. Just be aware with firsttable you need to buy a drink per person for the reservation! But they tell you that when booking so it's not a shock! Great food, atmosphere and service :)

What a funky little restaurant. Staff were attentive, made good recommendations and made us aware of the 15% public holiday surcharge as we entered.The Guacamole for starters was fresh and delicious and the Chicken Taco and the Fish Taco special were both very tasty. A bit messy to eat but that's Mexican food for you and it's part of the fun! The Fried Chicken specialty dish was delicious and a must try as the menu suggested...juicy and hot! For dessert we had the White Chocolate Cheescake which was beautifully presented with lots of different textures and complimentary flavours and the Churros were more of a traditional sweet treat but super tasty. Overall I would recommend you try this restaurant for great Mexican that offers value and vibe.

Great food , very fast to come out. Perfect pre-show dining. Lovely mexican soda. Only downside was they had lost our booking, but they managed to fit us in anyway. Note restaurant has shared tables for small groups.

Amazing food, vibes and service. The Mexican Fried Chicken is a MUST, don't be scared of the three chilli spice rating! It is simply delicious! The food was incredibly fresh and top quality. Would absolutely dine here again.

We went to Mexico for our anniversary lunch and were warmly greeted on arrival. We had a few different things. The drinks and food came out within 10mins and it was all full of flavour and was delicious. I can't wait to go again.

The food was great and the service friendly... really good food actually. The only problem was that all the seats are basically just wooden benches, not even cushions or anything to lean on so it was a pretty uncomfortable couple of hours and I had to spend quite a bit of it standing up because of a sore arse.. but it didn't stop me eating so.. that says a lot I suppose

Mexico's is yet another reason not to build The Wall, Mr Trump! Great food, awesome staff and sumptuous sangria (that's according to my husband because I'm back at work so of course, couldn't indulge...;)
