Made us wait for very long - over 15 minutes although we had made a reservation for 2. Food was very average and lacked salt (some
Dishes). The table service wasn’t great either because they weren’t very attentive and had forgotten our last 3 orders, making us wait at least half an hour before reminding them. This made us lose our appetites and very expensive dishes for sub par taste
We arrived 10 mins late and was initially told they have a 10 mins hold policy and have given our table away. I think it’s a scare tactic because their policy is 15 mins and they probably thought we would leave so they could give the table away, we did get seated eventually. Overall the wait staff were attentive. The food was average, highlight was the fish tacos and ceviche but the rest of the food so so.
Good food. Very enjoyable.
Amazing service, and even better food. Could not fault a thing. Will be back for sure!
to expensive small portions bad service was not worth it
Fantastic food and setting but what really set it apart was the service. Professional, attentive, friendly, helpful but unlike some not over bearing and in your face.
Service was a little slow in that they took a while to get round to taking our orders, but once they had the food came out amazingly quickly. Food was great and reasonably priced.
Great food and cocktails. Louis was really good at looking after their customers. All the staff were really knowledgeable about the menu. Highly recommend this place.
Great vibrant food and atmosphere to eat, drink and be merry!
Too expensive, the food nice but quantity too small. Uncomfortable chairs. No Mexican decor . Live music was very good
Margaritas too much lemon.
The food was so nice but I feel like there are other Mexican places around with just as nice food but not as expensive. Didn’t feel like the value was great. The staff were lovely and it’s a gorgeous restaurant. Great wine list. Great for people who are gluten free.
Very overpriced for the quality of the food and the drinks served. Did not meet my expectations in any way. I can make better food and drinks at home, so definitely not getting ripped off a second time. Good luck to those who enjoy throwing money into waste.
Generally good experience but a bit disappointed when we got the bill and it had a ‘donation’ added to it without asking,
Awesome Mexican, been around for a long time, and it's easy to see why!
Great food ... we had the staff recommendation and it was brilliant!
Delicious food, good vibe and great service from the staff.
Can wait to come back
Great food. Service was very good. They have Paloma's on tap. Say no more.
We ordered the set menu (least expensive) and it was excellent. Would recommend this option. We arrived at 5:00pm for an early dinner and felt we made the right choice - quiet beginning, which was a great way to start the evening, then the place filled and had a great vibe. Highly recommend Mama Sita.
Hola ClareH! ¡Muchas gracias!
Very patient staff helped our large group (from the country haha) through the menu and drinks list. We all loved it. Fish tacos were out of this world. Sangria was just right too.
Food was amazing, we were not served one average plate. The staff are attentive and understand their menu, are great at giving recommendations and helping with pairings. Very friendly and warm environment with simple but elegant decor.
The night was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
The food was nice but the meals were small for the price. Also it was very noisey in the restaurant hard to hear each other without yelling and it felt to crowded, the tables are too close together to have a pleasant dining experience.
Having been a regular here for years I was quite disappointed with the food/service organisation.
We ordered a bottle of wine to settle in for a nice meal but 4/5 of our dishes were brought out at the same time and consequently, most of them were cool/by no means warm by the time we got to eat them.
Our plates were continually taken away before we were 100% finished. Staff were lovely and bubbly, but the venue as a whole as seemingly lost the pizazz that it used to have.
Please have the espresso Martini permanently on the menu - it is phenomenal!
Food was very spicy and it wasn’t specified in the menu and even the staff didn’t tell us. Portions were very small, only the chocolate dessert was delicious. Noisy place, uncomfortable seats.
Food was fantastic, our waiter was very disengaged and grumpy. The rest of the team seemed great though, would recommend for sure!
Well priced modern Mexican, excellent staff and good tasty
It was good to be back after so many years. Food is great! That was the big bonus. Service can be a little more polite and attentive!
Not everyone speaks like an Aussie and understand Aussie accent. Speaking proper Standard English is important.
My wife and I love going here when we are in Melbourne great food, free pouring sparkling water and great cocktails
Basically non existent service and indifferent when around. Menu wasn't explained, no one to talk about mezcals or tequilas so we decided on just wine. I was surprised to see how quiet the venue has become since its hay-day. Food was OK, but I wouldn't come back for it.
I can’t wait to go back for more fried fish tacos!
We dined at the bar....and a huge benefit was learning all about mezcal from our incredibly knowledgeable female bar tender. It really added to our experiece and enjoyment.
Staff are fantastic and really nice space to be in, had Feed Me Menu but did not feel it was great value for money. Lamb Tacos and Beef Tostadas were delicious, wasn't mad on the large chicken dish.
Entree was outstanding but the main was a real let down. Chicken overcooked and bland and the rice smelled funky. Everything else was great
Perfect place for a catch up with friends. Delicious, shareable food and excellent service.
We knew Mamasita as a popular restaurant so were glad when we were able to make a fairly last minute booking as my friend was in town on business. We had booked a bar table (as that's what we were offered at the time) but upon arriving at the restaurant we were asked if we'd like to change to a low 2 seater which we did and this was great. Tables are close together, it's not the largest restaurant and it's obvious that lots of people want to eat here so they have to be but staff handle this beautifully whether talking to you or filling up your (never empty) water glass. The menu was explained to us well - there are multiple set menu options (that they may be able to make adjustments to, we asked!) as well as a la carte with everything designed to share. We were craving tortilla chips and guacamole which wasn't in any of the set menus and not being the biggest dessert fans (which is included in all set menus) we opted to do our own thing. We ordered tortilla chips & dips, chargrilled corn in a bowl, nut chorizo tostada, rockling ceviche, grilled fish tacos, pork carnitas tacos and lamb rib chops. Oh my goodness the corn was soooo good! I could eat multiple bowls on my own. The ceviche and fish tacos were another highlight and the nut chorizo was an interesting vegan option. Whereas the pork tacos were very wet & salty and the lamb rib chops were rather hard to eat. By that stage of the meal we were getting full anyway so left some of the ribs and definitely weren't interested in dessert, although the options sounded nice. We washed all of that down with a jug of Pink Cooler which was lovely - refreshing and a little smoky. They were incredibly accommodating about my aversion to fresh coriander which is always a plus and very much appreciated in a Mexican restaurant. Overall a great night!
I've been to Mamasitas before a long time ago in 2010, it was so lovely to return and try out the dishes again. I had a friend visiting from the UK and he was very impressed with the quality and flavor of the food. Overall a very good experience. I would definitely recommend visiting Mamasita for a nice night out, dinner and drinks with friends.
I have been wanting to dine with you for some time now. I’m a Coeliac and your restaurant was highly recommended. It did not disappoint. I will definitely be back and recommend it to others.
Couldn’t fault a thing!! Never disappoints. Can’t wait to come back
Prompt service.Finger licking food!!Would definitely come back soon.
Fabulous meal. We did the staff favourites menu, and we could see why each dish was chosen! The staff were attentive and helpful, even taking corn off the cob for a member of our party who had visited the dentist.
There were surprises on the menu. The vegan taco was amazingly good - fantastic texture and amazing cashew crema.
Great meal, great service. We will come again the next time we are in Melbourne.
