Two of us visited The Mexican on New Year's Eve and had a great meal - good food, nice surrounding and fun Mexican crockery! Cocktails were good too. Everything we were looking for.

I've eaten here many times and the food is always delicious! We visited as a group of 10 last night to celebrate new years and the service was quick, the food amazing and the staff friendly, fun and patient (we were quite a noisy group!) 👍 best restaurant in Exmouth.

We visited the Mexican last night, The food and service was great and the prices were reasonable. Also there were plenty of options available for Vegetarians. Would visit again.

The nachos and spare ribs were especially popular with our guests who commented how fortunate we were to have such a fine venue in our locality. We have frequented this restaurant many times over...

Had a family get together here and had an enjoyable meal. Service was efficient but on occasion a little too efficient as plates were tried to be cleared before we had finished at one point. Large portions and nice touch from the waiter who suggested we could take away the rest of my chicken kebab and promptly wrapped it in... More
