I would recommend but only for cheap taco night. The service was below average which was really disappointing as it used to be awesome. We waited 15 minutes and then had to ask a waitress for drinks. She was clearly annoyed as she didn’t look after our area. We were surprised because it wasn’t busy either when we were there, it didn’t get busy until about 8pm. We then had to ask someone else to order. When we flagged someone down and ordered drinks again, they didn’t take the empty ones from our table, nor did they take the empty plates. They used to. The staff weren’t friendly either.. The tacos have also changed which is a real bummer. I used to love going to Bonita however it’s changed a lot.

Great food, great service and cool interior design.
Acoustically the interior tends to amplify noise and that combined with a very loud group and music made it almost impossible to hear each other.
The food was delicious, fresh and great value for money. Lots of gluten free and vegetarian options. Drinks were nicely made.
Overall a great night. Thanks

Food is always outstanding but the service is poor.
The bill is always incorrect as items have usually been added so always check. Sangria is delicious but margaritas questionable

I booked for 4 the noise level was far too loud we all had difficulty hearing the waitress who also had to ask us to repeat ourselves as she had problem hearing what we said. The menu was not enticing and very expensive for what was offered . We dine out a lot as a group and were recommended this cafe by others !!! I think if your in your 20s and don’t mind loud music then it’s ideal. Not ideal for children at all given what the waitresses wear!!. I’m no prude but it was simply not a pleasant environment to eat or chat in. We had a drink then went to Italian restaurant across the way. !! The furniture was not relaxing ? Why so many cushions they were not practical as they fell thru the back of the metal chairs!!

Outdoor seating was poor - cramped and in walkway - sit inside!
Food was nice - not authentic Mexican.
Most meals lacked flavour aside from salt.
Would be good for a few drinks and snacks at the bar.
Staff were good but too busy to keep up with drink service

Tasty Mexican themed food options with other variations. Very generous, after the nachos & pork belly we had to take our tacos home for next day lunch! Outdoor balcony was great on a balmy night but the inside music was a bit full-on.

I was disappointed with my visit. Struggled to get service, although when we did they were generally helpful. My food was burnt and not enjoyable, whereas normally I am ridiculously happy.
I will go back, however, if the food is not up to par, it will be my last visit.

It was further then I like to drive (for the cost of Uber haha) and the parking is minimal if you do drive however the fitout is amazing , the food what mouth watering and the service/staff were friendly and entertaining. We sat at the bar for the best seat in the house and watched all of the cocktails being made. we had full selection of menu here and the food came out fast. Highly recommended. Thank you for a great night guys! Can't wait to try your new Palm Beach spot.

We had the WORST experience. They forgot our orders, brought us the wrong foods, ordered 6 course banquets but they stopped and closed the kitchen at 3 courses. Took an hour to get our food. Waitress kept claiming she was “brain dead” and “switched off her brain”.

Love this place! The staff is super friendly, the food is absolutely delicious, and they have great specials on during the week! The only thing is the noise levels can get crazy, but if you’re in for a good time, enjoy modern Mexican food, and love a fun vibe, this is the place to be!

Great food, Thursday $5 tacos is amazing value for money, they are the best tacos I've ever eaten....gourmet to say the least. Guacamole is better than home made and spicy wings are awesome. Washed them down with $5 sangria. Great night! Thank you

Bonita Bonita was amazing. I wanted to hold my 30th Birthday there however I need to make sure the food was good and the venue was the right fit. It blew any and all my expectations out of the park and needless to say I am holding my 30th Birthday there.

I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for great delicious tasting food with drinks to match.

Food great, so much on the buffet menu we had to take the last course home.
Hated the barrel table we sat at - super uncomfortable and had to sit spread eagled the whole time, which wouldn't be good if you were wearing a skirt or a dress. Table was super small too so had to keep shuffling around the plates, glasses, etc.
