The meals and staff were great, but it was quite expensive. For our family of 5 the bill was almost $200. Although the food was of high quality I do find this a lot for this style of food.
Still one of our favourite spots. Hoping to see the pre COVID menu items return at some stage.
I love everything about this place. They have not disappointed me so far.
Proper margaritas, poppers, enchiladas were really yummy on a cold night. We sat near the heater outside and had a great time... great tunes!
Awesome place ..
only little gripe would be the music was a bit too loud ..
otherwise everything was great
The restaurant was excellent but the chairs are so uncomfortable
We have been eating here for years when they first opened on CAV Rd, but this will be the last time we eat there. The menu is a kin to Taco Bell and the quality of food matches it. My wife’s $17 margarita was half full and she couldn’t even taste the tequila. Not sure if there has been a change of ownership but it is a shadow of what we grew to love at California Native.
We always have a great time at California Native! The service and food are outstanding, and I look forward to the jugs of Sangria. Thank you!
Great casual dining in nice indoor or outdoor setting. Service was excellent and we enjoyed the food.
The service is always fast and the staff are friendly. The food is always consistent which keeps us coming back time and time again. I highly recommend this place! Try the jalapeño poppers and the cheeseburger 🍔 😋
Fantastic as usual. We took our friends who were visiting from MEL and they loved it too
Love this place the food and service is always excellent definitely worth a visit
Great food and atmosphere. Always a favourite with our family across several generations.
Loved the food
This is our favourite Mexican restaurant just love it. The food is always delicious
We had the most wonderful dinner at California Native on Saturday night!! The food was amazing and the staff were incredibly attentive. A++
Great ambiance, food is delicious. Will definitely return.
Always a good experience Music can sometimes be a bit to loud
It was very good! The menu is straight forward with some good mexican Californian mixed food choices! Loved it
No taps beers as run out, bottle beer was warm. Found drinks expensive for location. The music playing was very loud and random 80/90s. Food was good but expensive $20 + for a burger and $ 16 for 2 sml taco. Unfortunately I wont be in a hurry to visit again
Excellent food and very reasonably priced. Stand out was the fish tacos. Yum.
Food took a little too long to arrive. I ordered shroom fajita, but thought the verges were a little too charred and overwhelmed the flavour of the full dish. Would be good to offer different spice levels to cater for different tastes.
But overall food was good, and liked that the table only seated 4 so had enough space to comfortably enjoy the meal instead of being squashed in a small table like most restaurants
fish tacos are not battered fish fingers. pls do homework on how o prepare this from food trucks in Hawaii
Great atmosphere, very tasty food and awesome cocktails.
Have visited many times over the years, constantly good service and love coming back as regular local. Prefer the food menu small, as tried most things and always super fresh and tasty consistently high standard. Friendly staff, great outside cactus courtyard which makes for great atmosphere. Love the margaritas!!! Only downfall was recent visit had ran out of low strength beers, bit inconvenient for friends driving.
The food and drinks were great. Staffs were friendly.
Super lovely evening - lovely friendly staff, delicious food and cocktails:)
Love this place it has the best Mexican food around
Mushrooms fajitas, I was given just 2 mushroom in a plate full of onions for 35 aud.
As always the best Mexican in Brisbane. Best fish tacos, bbq chicken rich and juicy, great margaritas, hot sauce is hot rather than pretend hot, very good service, nice ambience. Recommended.
Good food, great service, wonderful drinks. What more could you ask for.
Love that this is so local, it's all my strength not to go more often.
I've been to California Native twice now. The food is sensational and the service is excellent. The meals are large portions, and it's great value for money.
Highly recommend it.
Nice place for a relaxed meal with friends. Friendly service and good food.
Excellent tasty food with great friendly service. Highly recommended!
Stylish themed decor and ambiance. Food is great and very generous serving. Two people can easily share a main and won’t walk away hungry. Service friendly and efficient. My visit wasn’t the first and won’t be the last.
Absolutely loved our dinner here! Will definitely be back
Service very good
Music a bit too loud to enable easy talking at table got hearing aids
Been twice now
We have been 3 times now and are meeting up with granddaughters friends and their mothers for end of year dinner for her group. We love the taste, the smells and the music in the background. Everyone is friendly and service is good. Thank you
Enjoyed dinner here but wasn't anything amazing. Margaritas was delicious, though. Found my fajita steak quite fatty.
Went on Halloween and was nice to see the venue and staff in the spirit. Great staff, good food, amazing ambience and a killer taste in tunes. Nothing more to say really, would recommend.
