Came here with a few friends for my wife’s birthday and was unfortunately disappointed. The hostess lacked the usual cheery greeting you’d want as they’re the first person to welcome guests to the restaurant and our waiter seemed so overwhelmed and unhappy that he often left us feeling like we had imposed. In his defense it was a Friday night and they did look pretty short staffed. My wife and I had ordered the Feed Me deal but we’re not informed until the entire table had finished their meals that we couldn’t order that unless the whole table ordered it. Wouldn’t have been a problem in reordering if we didn’t wait there wondering where our food was for nearly 20 minutes. Again, waiter wasn’t very apologetic in forgetting to explain but made an attempt to put our order in quickly. I felt a little embarrassed as this was meant to be a special occasion for my wife and she had been really excited to come to the restaurant. The only things that saved the experience was when our food did arrive it was fabulous, everyone loved their cocktails and sangria as well, and the one woman that brought food to our table was maybe the friendliest employee you have. It’s still a relatively new place I think so hopefully the kinks will be worked out over time. Good luck to you
As always amazing service, beer, Mezcal and the best Mexican food in the country
The ceviche is amazing! The tacos were ok. Great music and decor.
Food is always good here, fresh and vibrant. All our courses were very tasty.
I regret that we did not get the 'feed me' as the meals that we ordered came out at different times and half the table was waiting whilst the other was eating and vias versa at the end of the meal. Our main dishes did not arrive, would suggest confirming order with waiters as you fill it in yourselves.
GREAT FIND. WE WILL BE BACK.
TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SIT AT THE BAR , CHAT WITH THE BARTENDERS AND GET THEIR TAKE ON THE FOOD AND DRINK OPTIONS.
Love the unpretentious yet cool, happening vibe of this place. Food is fresh, authentic with a modern edge. Flavours just yummo! And many vegetarian/vegan options for us plant eaters. Very cute interior, feels like you are in a sparkling new mexican diner in the 50's. Staff relaxed + friendly. It's a must if you're in Melbs!
Great venue, best Mexican in town! I would include a pitcher of margarita next time, that would be the only thing it needs!!
Awful food, terrible service, rushed us out by bringing the Eftpos machine to our table, even took our water glasses away while we were still drinking. Would never return
„Feed me“ surprise meal.
Fabulous! Can thoroughly recommend
The guys behind the bar are very knowledage and super friendly. I would request to sit at the bar every time!!!
The food was lovely but our service was very slow and it took much too long for the food to come out. We were told that there were some problems in the kitchen but that was after we complained. If the waiters had of told us prior and let us know the wait for our food would be a little longer I think we would of been able to relax and enjoy outselves more. Instead we left thinking ‘Jeeeze that wait was not worth it’.
Casual, tasty and fun! Good for a couple or a group tasty food and nice ambience.
Also enjoyed the menu card ordering system.
Such a beautiful place and such great food, cant wait to go back
Love the place, we were a party of 7 so we had to wait a bit for our food, but overall was amazing!
Loved the food, great atmosphere and great price, highly recommend!
I have been to Hotel Jesus a few times and really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, this time we had bad luck and the waitress managing are table was not really welcoming or friendly, she seemed she did not want to be there and seemed like by us asking her questions about food we were annoying her, it's a shame because we have been to Hotel Jesus a few times and had awesome waitresses and had real fun nights there, this was my Birthday and we tried to enjoy the food but this waitress was a bit rude.
Tried Hotel Jesus and found it wanting - the food selections did not have great variety and the flavors were bland.
Overall, we enjoyed our meal. It wasn’t the best Mexican food we’ve have in Melbourne, but it was decent. My husband wasn’t happy about the hot sauces as they weren’t spicy enough.
Food was truly amazing. Meat was juicy and flavours were incredible.
