DELICIOUS FOOD, SUPER FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF AND A REALLY FUN VIBE
Huge fan of traditional mexican and this place did not disappoint. Loved everything we tried and the variety of food was great for coeliacs (GF), vegetarians and meat lovers alike. Will definitely go back again!
Absolutely fantastic vibe, like I was transported to Mexico. Food is yum and micheladas are amazing!! Make sure to ask for extra hot salsa - el diablo. Thanks for an epic night!
Great staff & exceptional food. Already can’t wait to go back
We ate the $45pp banquet. It was the most amazing food we have ever eaten. So much food was brought out. The cured fish was outstanding and the pork and lamb barely even needed chewing.
Best mexican I've ever had i think! Everything was so delcious, waitress reccomended the corn and the paloma margarita, both were amazing! And turned out really cheap, highly highly reccomend!
Getting kicked out of a restaurant after 90 mins sucks. Hotel Jesus needs to rethink this policy. We won't be back.
Delicious food, great service and really nice atmosphere. Thanks :)
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.
Amazing staff, with great knowledge and recommendations. The food was absolutely awesome, different flare then your average Mexican.
Recommend the ceviche tostadas
I never got my deposit back and we dined. Can you please advise how I can get my deposit back?
Always love Hotel Jesus - highly recommend the Jesus Margarita (on tap, amazing). We had two serves of the corn it's so damn good. Excellent for our group Saturday lunch, but have been other times and sat at the bar with a date and also loved it.
Decor is tacky and cheap. Food is very tasty and good value.
Hip venue good food very reasonably priced
We will be back
This was our second visit and it didn't disappoint! Excellent authentic food, good mescalitas and quick, good service made it another enjoyable meal. My wife is Mexican so we speak with some authority.
Great Mexican food, amazing decoration and great selection of drinks
We booked a table for 3 to take a friend who was visiting Melbourne for the weekend. After walking past h place before and thinking it looked cool we thought we'd give it a try. We booked online which was an easy process. However the table that was given to us was very small and should've been for a maximum of 2 people. As the food is tapas and the plates are large you'd think they'd give a party of 3 a larger table that wasn't small and round. Alas, we had little room for our plates and so spent the whole time juggling our food and drinks around. The chairs were also quite u comfortable being all metal. They recommend a group sit for dinner for 1-1.5 hours but I couldn't sit on those chairs for that period of time.
Food was tasty but definitely over priced - classic tapas. Was ok to try but won't be coming back.
Loved the decor and ambiance of the place. My wife who doesn't normally like Mexican food loved the four here
The setting is great and the staff helpful and friendly. It is very spacious and a good place to go with a group of friends . The corn's amazing. Another great feature is that you can actually hear what your friends have to say while you are eating good food. The only suggestion is that the bean dip has a bit more flavour as it was a bit bland. The rest was yummy.
Best corn on the cob I've ever eaten! All the food was delish, quick service, great atmosphere plus staff were happy and friendly too! Nothing was too much trouble.
Would return again when in Melbourne!
Ambience was ok and place decoration is original. Service wasn't great, our waiter was quite rude. Pastor tacos were disappointing and food took longer than expected specially the pastor tacos, the aguachile and suadero tacos were really yummy. We were just finishing and we got asked if we already wanted the bill, no time for a chat we ended up going for dessert to another place.
