We got there early, door doesn’t open till 5pm (when our reservation started). The guacamole is great and so was the mojitos. I liked the beef taco, different to what I have tried before. We enjoyed the potatoes ordered as a side.Kids weren’t fans of the pork tacos but that’s probably a personal taste choice.

The service was attentive and the drinks were delish. The food was a mixture of good and average - the tacos were a bit dry and the palm hearts too acidic, the ceviche was lovely and the corn reliably good as ever!

Three of us ordered the staff favourite banquet, NOT value for money. It wasn’t my first visit at this venue but was definitely last one.

All the meat from the entrée to the mains was bland, no flavour in any dish. A tomato side salad dressing had more flavour than any other dish on the banquet. So disappointed. Drinks and dessert were average.

Not visiting this place again.

For what we paid and received as in value , chips and hot sauce etc, seriously over priced and no real value. If I was at cumulus ink or similar I would expect it. But street food on plates, seriously over priced and over rated. Sorry for honesty. Jason

Mamasita is a shadow of her former self. The food was ok and did not blow us away like it used to, It felt very crowded which is something you become more aware of during COVID I think. The staff were just there to do their job, weren't friendly (not rude) and showed no charisma or passion. Surprisingly there were a lot of staff! By the end of the meal it was clear they just wanted us out, granted it was 10:30 on a Wednesday night but they were pushy with the bill. Not a super pleasant evening although not unpleasant. Won't be going again.

I was expecting a lot more from this well rated venue. What we got was surprisingly tasteless $109 a head food on an uncomfortable stool on a table not big enough for the food. Trying to look for the positive, the margaritas were well made.

The ceviche is excellent, and the fish tacos are also tasty. All the other tacos are lacking flavour that you would usually expect, eg, coriander, lime, chipotle. The meat is placed on the taco with so much meat juice that the taco disintegrates. It would work better as a normal dish, not on a taco. I don’t want to criticise a restaurant in these difficult times, but go because it is a pleasant venue, not because you will get tasty Mexican food

Guacamole was very good but the tortilla chips was a letdown. We ordered the main course, octopus tentacles, taste fabulous but it’s only 2 tentacles, tiny portion without side looking sad and very lonely on the plate. It costed $36!! Taco with pulled pork were very good. Mexico mojito was also another letdown. Overall, it was still a good eating experience though.
