Mexican
A restaurant smuggled from Mexico to Melbourne. Find Little Bourke Street’s late night mezcal bar and taqueria hidden underground in the China Town precinct, and open 7 days a week until late, including lunch Thursday - Sunday. Try a Tequila or Mezcal cocktail, or speak to our team about sipping some exciting Agave spirits instead. The $59 Feed Me banquet offers great value and a huge mix of traditional Mexican street food, plus some dishes with a twist. We also offer a $75 Bottomless Brunch on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sundays, with unlimited cocktails and 5 dishes; or a Pre-Theatre deal available every night of the week. We are located on the corner of Little Bourke and Crossley Street, Melbourne, with a moody bar and dining area perfect for both a quiet drink, or a larger celebration.

    Was recommended to try this place, it was ok nothing standard out. Price and atmosphere was fine and most of the food was quite tasty except the Churros was very disappointing, definitely had better.

    Loved the pre-theatre package, it was the perfect amount of food and a great variety of dishes. Dishes were served quickly and the staff were amazing!

    We were given the upstairs table by the door on a freezing cold night. We asked for a table slightly away from the door but were told it was for four people. Half an hour later, two people walked in and were given the table. Service of the Feed Me menu was lighting fast then slowed down to the point where we were told our last course was some time way because the kitchen was busy. We paid and left at this point. Didn’t experience Bodega Underground but have to say we didn’t really enjoy Bodega Foyer.

    The restaurant and staff are great but this time felt very rushed in the 90mins. Food brought out together and going cold. The mole was disappointing, way too salty and not able to distinguish the ingredients as a traditional mole should. The beetroot tacos were also too salty and the chilli bitter. I have had the same food before and it tasted much better.

    i seen this restaurant being hyped up all over social media but it just wasnt that good in my opinion. food was mid, drinks were watered down and service was quite poor. i mean the food was good but not great, i could just be let down because i had high expectations. vibe of the restaurant is very cool though and the decor is awesome to look at. i didnt dislike my experience but i wouldnt go back again.
