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.
Lovely atmosphere, very good service. Food was great quality but it was not spicy enough for Mexican. We had children at our table and were sharing plates; I assume the chef toned down the spice for them ... however I would have preferred if they'd asked first! Our kids love spice. We left feeling that the food was very nice, but we didn't get our chilli fix. Better communication between kitchen and diners would improve the experience.
So good! Recommend the sangria, enchiladas and fish tacos.
A great experience with delicious eats. Will definitely being going back. Great margaritas too. Gracias to the Team at California Native.
Food was delicious and serving sizes are so generous!
Nice food without being groundbreaking. Not enough zing. It would be good if the menu stated that you could get the meals with chilli.
Good concept. and really enjoyed our evening.
Wife thought her Fish Tacos were the best she had ever tasted.
Margaritas could have filled the glass a little more or use a smaller glass.
The actual glass was a pretty glass though. Thanks
ps. Pleasantly busy and this was a Thursday evening
very good restaurant with great food
would recommend to others
Great food & service. Generous servings. Would recommend.
This place has the best Mexican food ever we love it
This please is always a favourite to visit.. the food is hands down the best Mexican in Bris
Great night out at California Native. Great music, service and food. Will go back!
Excellent food and service as usual. Will come again
As always a pleasure to dine at California Native and was so glad to be able to take friends their for the first time!
We love this place it reminds of the old Montezumas that was in Burleigh in the 80’s. Love there Mexican flavours
Beautiful aura, great service, and nice food would be great if we could choose to have beans or not though.
Great food and atmosphere, will definitely return
Great night. The staff are super friendly and the food was delicious. Thank you for an amazing evening. Will definitely be back!
Absolutely loved it. We’re coming back again soon!
The starters were delicious. We ordered beef taquitos and guacamole Dip. For main course, we ordered Malibu burger and chicken enchilada, they were in general good food. Unfortunately, we couldn't get a table in the external part of the restaurant and we did not like too much the table near to the main door.
Wonderful. We've had two dates here over about a year or so, and it's become a special treat. The food is a great hybrid of comfortable familiar dishes, but superior quality. Bit North, bit South American, that California fusion.
Food was fantastic!
I got the fajitas (beef) which came with 5 wraps and plenty of food.
My partner got the double enchiladas which was huge!
Service was fantastic, it was quiet enough to have a conversation without shouting at each other and the feel of the restaurant was great.
Parking was full but there is street parking available if needed.
I left with a food coma which kept me full for half of the next day.
My partner also said the cocktails were fantastic.
I would recommend and I will be back!
The most perfect and authentic Mexican food we have had in a long time. Everything we ordered was fresh, light, and delicious - we especially enjoyed the jalapeno poppers. Will definitely eat here again.
Fantastic food great service
Would recommend anyone to eat there
