I have never seen such a large menu in a Mexican. Alal bases are coveree and it was delicious. Friendly staff, Abe and Richard made us feel very welcome. My tacos were amazing, nachos to begin with lovely. Everyone was happy, my frozen Daquiri was literally the icing on the cake!

Really good mexican food. Very flavourful and definitely one of the best I have ever had! They give you a lot of food. I don't eat much so always end up wasting. Definitely 2 of me can eat a meal. You must try!

Nothing to rave about with this restaurant. We started with margaritas which tasted like they had no alcohol. Shared some entrees. The ceviche was the nicest out of all the dishes. The mains were all bland. The dishes lacked a freshness about them. Service was prompt. Would not go back and would not recommend .

Always funny to not have cheap Mexican, but it isn't disgustingly priced and it's way better than the Flying Fajita Sisters. It's my favourite Mexican in Sydney (I've lived in California). Highly recommended.

Ate at this restaurant last night with friends. Food was very good and came quickly. The waitress was a bit out of it and took away my menu before I had even ordered but besides that all was great! I would def go again! The harp playing was a nice touch!

We'd been there once before and thought the food was OK, if pretty overpriced. This time, the restaurant messed up our booking and the staff were exceptionally rude about it. This is one of those places that likes to tell you how long you can stay (strictly two hours for an early booking). Now, I can understand that when it's... More

Deceived to try this restaurant out on a Saturday night without a booking and had no trouble getting a table for two as it was slightly early. Ordered the Nachos and burrito and was very tasty and had lots of flavours. The service was very good and food came out within 10 mins of ordering it. Would go back when... More

I always go back to this place for the tamale. Only place in sydney that has the best Mexican tamale. Fun atmosphere, good food and good live music.

My partner and I walked into this place and had a great dinner a few months ago, so we decided to return on a whim. We were greeted by a waitress who promptly turned us away but took our number in case a table became available. Just as we were leaving to wait for her call, another couple walked in... More

Staying in Glebe

Neighbourhood Profile
An inner city suburb along the water, Glebe has a deep-rooted sense of cultural history and heritage. It originated as a semi-rural resort for the well-to-do, but has transformed into a student-centric melting pot. Visit Glebe Point Road for ethnic cuisine as standard as Mexican, Indian, Italian and Chinese, or as diverse as Spanish, Bavarian, Polish, Czech and Lebanese. You will find that Glebe is accepting of the eccentrics and aboriginals that roam the streets, integrating students and people of all economic statuses into the multi-cultural fabric that distinguishes this suburb. Glebe Foreshore is a great destination for a leisurely walk along the Bay, and the Saturday market is a great scene for bargain hunters.
