Stopped in for a quick dinner. Nice food, attentive staff and a wide range of gluten free options great.

After reading the hundreds of good reviews on Mamasita my partner and I just had to check this place out. We love Mexican food and always start with your basic corn chips with guacamole followed by street style corn. Unfortunately to our disappointment the simplest of foods were extremely dull and lacking key flavours. For us the shared entrees were very unenjoyable and this made our decision not stay for the main course. The service although was great and not that long of a wait.

Picked this place based on reviews and we were not disappointed. Make sure to have a reservation. We did an online one at the last minute, and had we not we would have not been able to be seated. Food and cocktails were excellent - absolutely no complaints from either of us. The street style corn appetizer was well done - we ordered the one in a cup (esquites) to share. I had a small portion of the Aguachile, which was a nice ceviche style preparation of rockling fish and some nice spice in the lime sauce. The tacos were well done - nice blend/complement of flavors in each prep. We had the fish (Cobia), lamb shoulder and pork hock. It was Wednesday night and not an open seat in the house the whole time we were there - a great sign. Oh, and the cocktails were very nice as well - both the hand shaken margaritas and the sangria. Well done Mamasita -

Dined here with a friend for lunch on Sat. We could book a table online so that was good. We shared the street style corn, had a roasted lamb shoulder taco each, shared the chicken tostaditas and also the campechano (chorizo & beef cheek) quesadilla. For a drink I had the agridulce drink which was a mocktail/aguas frescas. Everything was delicious and tasty. I haven’t been here for many years and was bringing my friend for the first time and we both enjoyed it. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. A visit to haighs store across the road for a sweet treat afterwards is a must!
