Haven't been to a top quality Mexican restaurant for a while. Wasn't expecting such a wonderful experience as we had. Mexican restaurants normally fall into the trap of producing meals to a script, similar no matter where you go. The Santa Fe in Merimbula was different. The meals were devine, different, service exemplary, and the cost was right for the... More

Visited this restaurant for lunch. I had the beer battered flathead tortilla wrap and my partner had the soft beef taco. Both meals $10 each and extremely delicious, could not fault it for the price. Staff friendly and helpful. Would definitely return!

Mexican restaurants are known for big serves and this one is no exception, the quality of our meals was as good as the serves were big. My wife is not big on these meals but they had a very nice fish of the day which she enjoyed. The prices are relatively expensive but you get a lot for it, our... More

The food was fairly authentic tasting, service was quick, but I think they were just trying to rush us out because it was busy, being a long weekend. I ordered a bean burrito and was a little disappointed because it was covered in toppings and I couldn't actually pick it up to eat it like a wrap. It was pretty... More

Service and food is always good but they need to let you finish your entrees before they bring out the mains! 😳😊
