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!

The margaritas were delicious. Dessert was absolutely amazing! The cheesecake was one of the best I've had in the country.
The rest of the food was pretty good. But sometimes it's alright to go back to basics with mexican, don't over fancy it up with too many 'interesting' flavour combinations.

We had a great time. The service was really quick and friendly and the food came out without much of a wait. The food was really nice - especially the cauliflower!! The desserts looked delicious but unfortunately we were stuffed full! We’ll have to try again next time.

Great food. I will say the pork carnitas taco is more like pork belly and was a little fattier than I expected, but the fried chicken and crispy cauliflower were both so good!

Margaritas were awesome, food was great, 3yos running around the restaurant from the next table were less than ideal, we were lucky to have a nice couple next to us on the shared table.

Mexico is one of my favourite restaurants so it was a bonus to find it on first table. The food never disappoints and the service is friendly and efficient. The food is reasonably priced as it is so being on first table makes it a super cheap night out.

Staff were really polite and helpful and the food and drinks were very tasty! Highly recommend the Margarita's, especially the Mango one. Not 100% sold on the shared table seating, but it wasn't as awkward as I thought it would be. Will definitely be back!

My partner and I went for a midweek lunch. The service was amazing, our hostess greeted us with a smiling face and helped us through the menu. Delivery of the food and drinks was incredibly quick and the quality of the food was outstanding. The pork soft taco and black bean dip is a must try!

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!

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.
