Amazing food paired with great service and epic cocktails! The jalapeño margarita was amazing. Definitely will return to another great restaurant in Melbourne.
We loved dining here, the food was amazing although one does she was super hot 🔥 still tasted Amazing though, the margaritas were a plenty and beautiful too drink, I savoured every bite
Great food and experience. Set aside a couple of hours to fully experience the share style food and great cocktails.
Great food with many veg/vegan options which was a bonus. Small serving sizes but fairly priced and we were informed when we ordered we might need an extra serve of the smaller portions if we were sharing etc. Prompt and professional service.
Only down side was how close we were sitting next to other patrons on the high tables - especially given covid times.
Really lovely service! We had the kindest waitress without being too over bearing
Very loud, no social distancing, may as well have been dining with strangers.
Food was great, worth the poor environment.
Mamasita is always great! Delicious food in the heart of Melbourne!
Not overly impressed after reading the reviews, expectations certainly not met. Portion sizes for the price a little exuberant, minimal options for tacos and other small tapas like options considering it’s a Mexican restaurant - will stick with our local in Brunswick
Hola Tara, Thank you for your feedback we take things like this very seriously and have taken all of this on board. I have passed everything on to management. Thanks again.
Pre covid we come to Mamasita and loved loved it.
Not sure if the menu had changed, but it did not have all of the same vibes as last time and the meal was fair rather than delicious.
I hope it improves once again.
Hola Katie, Thank you for your feedback. We take things like this very seriously and have taken all of this on board. I have passed everything on to management. Thanks again.
Overpriced bland food. Tomato tostada crisp base but floury tasteless tomato. Tacos- too messy and watery. Beef- hard to pull apart, needed longer cooking time. Seafood OK, corn- very good. Desert- unusual -beaten raw egg, scant muesli base.

Fast service great tasting food and exceptional wait staff
Thanks so much :)
delicious food but small portions and pricy. did not left there full!
Thank you SinaM !! I have passed on your feedback about the portions.
Each item we ordered was exquisite—from the tacos to the cauliflower steak, and the watermelon mojitos. Everything was made carefully, and the service was attentive without being intrusive. While the atmosphere and decor here is really inviting, it was packed to the walls, the tables are too close to squeeze between, and just as a party of 2, we had to yell to be heard. Still worth it on the nights you’re looking for a good metro dinner or fun night to kick off starters and drinks.
Hola, Thank you for your review. We have taken everything on board and I have passed on the feedback regarding your tables to management. Thanks again :)
Food and service is fantastic as usual! Definitely a go-to for a Melbourne night out!
Great food, great ambiance and great service. Alway nice to enter mamasita
The flavours were amazing, topped only by the wonderful staff who went above and beyond.
Love this place, great service & food!!
Amazing experience! Definitely excited to come visit again!
Been meaning to try Mamasitas for years. So glad I finally made it. Every dish was a taste sensation. Service was superb.
Mains were forgotten, had to wait more than an hour and a half and, when it did eventually come out, it was a bit cold and seafood was tough.
I think mamasita had developed a name for itself it struggles to keep up with. Many better other Mexican options around where you’ll be more comfortable and won’t be waiting nearly 2 hours for some chewy seafood.
Hi Chris, Thank you for your feedback. We take reviews like this very seriously and have passed everything on to the team. We would love to make this up to you. May we please have an email so that we can send you a voucher for a round of drinks on us?
We had the staff banquet menu. The food was fairly good but nothing mind blowing. Service was friendly. Unfortunately our night was ruined by the couple next to us trying to be elitist and bitter idiots attempting to ruin our night. After largely ignoring their behaviour it did ultimately spoil the night (birthday.) If that is the type of customers Mamasita's attracts I probably wouldn't return even though it's not really the businesses fault.
Great to return to one of my favourite restaurants after closures last year. The standard hasn't slipped. The vibe, the food and the drinks were exactly as I expected they would be. The waiting staff were smiling, efficient and looked happy to be doing what they do best.
Thanks so much Carolyn!!! See you soon :)
Hopefully it was just a bad night or something but my third time at Mamasita was quite poor. Our wines took an age to be delivered to the table, and the $16 Chardonnay was undrinkable. I returned both glasses. Two out of three dishes came out, the third had been clearly forgotten or not ordered. We ate as fast as we could so we could go - then when settling the bill, the returned drinks were still on the tab. I requested they be removed as I had returned them. All in all, Mamasita just felt like it has gone down hill. Won’t be looking to go back any time soon. Sad.
Overpriced. We paid 110 and we crossed over to get chips from McDonalds. So overpriced
Hola Daniel, Thank you for taking the time to write to us. We appreciate all feedback. We have taken a look into your booking from our backend and seen that you ordered three mains with some starters for four people - usually, we would recommend more than this over multiple courses. Next time we would love to guide you through the menu - so that you get the most out of it. We would love to have you back to show you the real Mamasita please let us know if there is anything we can do.
Pork belly tacos & soft shell crab tacos are a must.
Esquites really taste like in Mexico and this time I tried the pan seared duck w cherry mole, it was delicious, be sure to get tortillas w it to make tacos too.
Margaritas are also really good, my favourite: cucumber & jalapeño
Service was exceptional.
Overall a nice experience. We were grateful that Mamasita held our table when we were running 15 minutes late. The menu didn't feel like it contained enough variety.
Fantastic service and delicious food. Will definitely be going back.
Seated at the corner of the bar near the restaurant so was often knocked by people moving past and was loud at times with cooking staff. Overall good though just awkward seating.
Really good all round experience. Food wasn’t tasty and the drinks were lovely.
Hola! Thank you so much for your review and the 5-stars. However, would you mind giving us some more details about why you did not enjoy the food? Thanks :)
It was frustrating ordering a bottle of wine to have to then rely on our server to keep it topped up. Several times we had to flag someone down and ask for our drinks to be refilled.
Also with earth hour it was so hard to actually see what we were eating. When booking a celebratory dinner it would have been good to know in advance that the lights would be turned off for an hour.
Guacamole: no flavour.
Esquites: was the only relatively similar to traditional Mexican food.
Tacos al pastor: not worth the money. Too expensive for a tiny little piece.
The last time we dined there was before COVID about 18 months ago and it was amazing. Being Coeliac its very hard to find a restaurant that is safe. Mamasita certainly is excellent for those who are Coeliac as the food is gluten free. It has been my favourite place and that is why I recommended to take my friends. This time the food was not as previously as we were informed the menu has changed. Please revert back to your original menu as it was amazing. One of the dishes that we had this time was the Tortilla chips guacamole salsa which was very bland. This menu is not as good as it was. I would only return if you revert back to your previous menu. For me its disappointing because its a good gluten free restaurant.
Great food and service. They accommodated our request for a specific table. A little loud, (which is understandable) and there was no lift, so a little difficult for my Mum to climb stairs with bad knees - but otherwise great!
Really enjoyed the food, but unfortunately we were disappointed by some rude waitstaff.. Great tostaditas and tacos, but did not enjoy having eyes rolled at us on more than one occasion
I LOVED IT!!! Absolutely everything was incredible! I was super impressed with the service and the food was scrumptious!
Place has changed a lot, used to be good quality food. Guacamole was tasteless with 12-15 chips to eat it with, Flan was invisible with thin slices buried under some sort of coconut cream. Softshell Crab Tacos were passable and the duck leg tasty but a littleout of place on the menu.
The service was really good, our server was on top of everything and was lovely to interact with. Unfortunately, our food was not the best, paying a high price I was expecting delicious food don't get me wrong it was edible but should be a lot better for what you pay especially with the small sizings. We had the seafood main dish and the seafood was very overcooked and rubbery. The rest of the dishes were average on flavor.
Overall the food was not worth the amount, I had previously been before and loved the food, and I'm more than happy to spend any amount on delicious food. Just believe you need to know the quality of food has gone down alot.
Perfect menu, cocktails and staff. Have been many times before and will not be my last visit
Hola Raffa! Thank you!
Amazing food, amazing margaritas. The soft shell crab tacos and the vegan tostaditas were the standout.
Hola ! Thank you so much!
Great food and service on a rainy Saturday evening
Hola ! Thank you so much!
