First time trying the Mexican and everyone agreed it was a great night. A good menu choice, delicious food (big portions too), nice wine and excellent service - all in a really relaxing atmosphere. Will definitely be back.

On a trip back home I took my Parents here for an early Mother's Day treat, on her choosing. I was unaware of this place, but I'll certainly remember it now. We got tables straight away (it was a Thursday) and promptly taken care of with a free iced margherita and a bowl of tortilla chips for the table. For... More

Impressive atmospheric restaurant with free entrees, quick friendly service and good menu of authentic cuisine. Vegetarian options plus Mexican beer menu. Couldn't fault the food or setting. No mole which would be nice. Try the stuffed chilli peppers as a starter. Great find!

As always the food is amazing. We had the seafood Gumbo, Chicken and Shrimp Gumbo and the Full house Fajita. Only one of us managed to finish the mains as the servings are deceivingly large. Prices are very reasonable and family friendly with a busy friendly vibe. The free Margaritas shots with the tortillas before you order is fab touch.

Food is excellent and staff very attentive. Great atmosphere. Tried the full house fajitas - even I couldn't finish it. Prices are superb - you do not feel ripped off like many restaurants in Perth

Found the food excellent and enjoyed the relaxed dining atmosphere. I had Chicken and shrimp Gumbo, a Cajun stew served with jambalaya style rice and corn bread muffins - very tasty and a generous portion. My girlfriend enjoyed Chicken & chorizo Quesadilla. Seemed to have plenty on the menu to suit all tastes - spicy/ mild, exotic/ traditional. A frozen... More

Went to The Mexican for dinner the other night and it was fabulous, love the fact you get an mini margaritas & tortilla chips with amazing salsa as soon as you sit down - we had the calamari and coconut prawns to start followed by fajitas and the chicken mesquite, which were both fab. Unfortunately neither of us was able... More
