First visit and didn't know what to expect or serving sizes. Chose Mamasita as it had oysters on the menu (my partner's favourite food). Food was good - quesadillas and beef short rib. I wanted the sweet corn ice cream but there wasn't any. Flan was a good replacement. We will return as it is nice and close to Kino cinema.
Good choice for theatre patrons as it's close and quick.
The food was delicious!! Service great, thank you :)
Great original Mexican inspired menu. Good service and nice staff.
We arrived an hour before our booking time, feeling apprehensive. The server immediately found us a spot to sit. George served us and was very friendly. We only wanted the feed me menu for one person,
with a couple of extras and he kindly checked with the kitchen and accommodated us! As soon as a table became vacant, we were swiftly moved. The food was delicious...very tasty with a bit of a kick at times! As for the cocktails, they were wonderful. Thank you, we will be back and will bring friends!
An experience to remember for quite some time. Highly recommend for those who haven’t had the pleasure.
Great food, great service. Accommodating for vegan also. We had a great night
The food was absolutely amazing, will be back again!
Absolutely amazing, this food is incredible! Everything about this place is top notch. Highly recommend
Thank you :)
Fish tacos were excellent
Pinot noir was lovely
Mincheladas good too
Food and Presentation was Absolutely Amazing...Would Definitely Recommend this Place
Great food - really fantastic range of options, and good veg options, too.
Everything was good except the guacamole & chips. The chips were stale and the guacamole was whipped. Whipped guac might save time but it's not authentic and I personally don't like it.
Delicious food, great customer service. Good times.
A great dining experience for friends with a lovely setting and knowledgeable staff. Unfortunately I found our high table quite cramped and close up to neighbouring tables, feeling like you’re sharing their space and conversation also. The food was great and the sharing plates had lots
Of flavour. A few more vegetarian options would be ideal and perhaps explain to patrons the sharing menus at the back as there’s a lot of food to read through. Great experience nevertheless
Hola, Thank you for taking the time to write to us – we really appreciate all the feedback you have given and will take everything on board Thanks again.
Aside from the amazing food, service was on point - attentive and were careful with dietary requirements.
Very enjoyable the more so given my wife is coeliac
food was spicy. asked for recommendations for non spicy food. that didn't go well. the service was great. a great place to relax for tapas.
Average Mexican flavours. Lacked any innovation, lacked seasoning and lacked any punch. So disappointed, I was wanting this to be an enjoyable dinner. The tacos were very poor all round. The confit pork has been finished off on the grill which I was not expecting. Condit pork should be tender and succulent. Due to the grilling most pieces of pork were rock hard (not crispy) and had a strong carbon (ie burnt) flavour from the grill. The ox tongue taco perhaps not to my personal liking. Avo and chips were blah. Corn....totally overrated. Service and ambience however was really good .
Great food, expected a few other mexican dishes but the tacos theme was nice.
Overall a great experience with pleasant staff.
Like most restaurants unfortunately mamasita is loud and the screaming is the norm. It’s the plague of all hip places. We are starting to eat more at home and have friends over
Hola, Thank you for taking the time to write to us regarding your visit. We would love to have you back and rectify that 3-star rating. Is there anything specific other than the loudness of the crowd (which we sometimes are unable to control) that you’d like us to look into? Thank you.
Food was delicious as usual but sitting at the high table isn’t my preference otherwise great
With fantastic food and excellent service; Mamasita will change the way you think about Mexican food and drink. Be prepared to try everything and ask the friendly staff for their recommendations. Great for a special meal where you're not skimping on anything!
We love Mamasita. The food is always amazing and the staff are wonderful
The food here is always fantastic. Could not fault the amazing service. Loved it!
Great food, great drinks, great atmosphere... not much more i can say :)
Fantastic food and excellent service. Great vegetarian options for myself and my wife.
Extremely tasty food, service was quick, waitor was really friendly and knowledgeable about drink choices. Had an awesome time!
The food was lovely, the service was amazing and we simply have an excellent girls day out lunching with cocktails.
Our first Mamsita experience did not disappoint. The food was delicious, the drinks amazing and the service was relaxed but prompt. A lovely way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon.
Some of the most amazing food I’ve ever had! Would definitely recommend
Customer service and vibe wasn’t great.
The restaurant web site advertised a down to earth, authentic Mexican experience but nothing could be further from the truth. I lived in Arizona on the Mexican border for seven years and had never seen this kind of food before. In fairness some of it was tasty, but better described as Mexican inspired fusion. On top of that I found the food over priced, and the music (acid jazz) way too loud.
Drinks were great. I had not been in years, but had always recommend it. However, this time the food was generally boring, and the waiter seemed to be annoyed at waiting on us. I asked which of two dishes is more popular or what he would suggest, and he just said it's up to you. Like I was wasting his time. He seemed to give the tables next to me his time and enthusiasm. They also cleaned up our table and gave us dessert menus, then our last meal came. Although we had forgotten about it too.
I still love the corn and the drinks, but the other food wasn't as good as I remember, and the waiter really made me feel unwelcome.
Had high expectations. The service at staff were great. The food was just ok. The person I went with told me menu has changed as was not as good as previous. Will give it another try. But not too soon.
Had the most delicous food in an amazing setting and atmosphere. Staff were super friendly and more than happy to give drink and food recommendations. One waiter in particular with dungarees was a delight and recommended and served us many delicious tequilas! Will be returning very soon!
Beautiful food, although we felt as if we were being rushed to order.
Would have been great to have ceiling fans as it was quite warm inside, although it was very hot outside.
My partner and I fell in love with this restaurant 4 years ago on a trip to Melbourne. Now that we live here we decided to revisit Mamasita to see if it lived up to memories/hype. It did not disappoint! It's a cool Mexican restaurant with a great menu which takes a modern twist on classic dishes. This paired with a variety of delicious Mezcals and excellent service makes this establishment a Melbourne gem which only gets better with age.
Food quality isn’t amazing for the price point. More expensive that Fonda for example but definitely not as tasty.
Prefer not to do the feed me better food on the menu and it gets a bit expensive. Drinks were awesome.
