Amazing service and plentiful food. Our waiter was amazing. Nothing was a problem. He introduced our group to different drinks and went in to great detail about them. We will be back.
Delightful and delicious food and cocktails. Fast and friendly service. Fantastic atmosphere and ambience. Great value. 5 stars.
Felt very squished and the food was not great. Will not go back.
First visit to Mamasita since before the pandemic - unfortunately the food has gone from outstanding to very ordinary based on this sitting
Hola, Thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate it. We are continuously adapting our menu and have taken all your feedback on board. Thanks again for your time and comments.
Unfortunately the pork belly was really dry and not enjoyable.
Same goes with the pork tacos, not very nice to eat.
Food was a bit underwhelming in flavour.
Unfortunately not as good as the last time I came which was about a year ago, not sure ide recommended now
Good food, but not safe for coeliacs
Our waitress, Sarah, was absolutely amazing.
She realised our food took quite some time to come and discounted a couple drinks off the bill as good will, without us even asking or complaining (not that we were going to).
The food and vibe was awesome.
Would highly recommend.
Hola Jarrod, Thank you so much for your review. Your kind words mean the world to us and we are so thrilled that you enjoyed your experience. We can’t thank you enough for taking the time to review us and look forward to seeing you again at Mamasita. Saludos!
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We had booked the high seating and when we arrived asked if there was a possibility we could be seated at the lower tables. Sure enough as soon as a table became available the wait staff picked all of our food and drinks up and moved us. We found all of the staff friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a filling meal that tastes great for a reasonable cost.
Very good. Great service, value and food was fantastic.

Nice ambience and restaurant aesthetic. But unfortunately the service was slow and sloppy. Multiple times waiters made eye contact and ignored our attempts at getting their attention so we could make our order. Delivery of food was very sporadic, with long waits between some dishes. And in general, the food was nothing special, borderline disappointing in fact. Very disappointing for a Melbourne restaurant.
Not the tastiest tacos in town, there were almost tasteless. Nothing on the menu was nothing earth-shattering. They tried to add fried cricket on the tacos, but the crickets were chewy and unpleasant. they should have made them crispy.
Guac was fine, but again, was OK.
I would definitely review and consider packing more flavour in the food.
Once again the friendly staff and delicious menu at Mamasita doesn't disappoint. Amazing blend of flavours, if your idea of Mexican is taco Tuesdays, then do yourself a favour and get down to Mamasita to see what real Mexican cuisine is all about. Highly recommend the street food corn entrees, and the Borders Old Fashioned cocktail to finish up your night. Friendly staff, energetic atmosphere, don't miss out! Wish I could give it more than five stars.
Hola Ben, Thank you so much for your review. Your kind words mean the world to us and we are so thrilled that you enjoyed your experience. We can’t thank you enough for taking the time to review us and look forward to seeing you again at Mamasita.
The chicken tostaditas were amazing!
The ambience and the service were excellent. Great wine as well!
Have been a regular for many years and was so disappointed by my experience last night. Food lacked flavour with small servings. The palm hearts were particuarly bad and the pulpo was inedible, the red sauce seemed to need more cooking and the ocotopus was tiny for $32.
We won't be returning.
Wonderful service and food. The dishes are very innovative, fresh and delicious. We excitedly return each time to new menu items. The eggplant and flan popcorn desert were to die for this visit! The service is super efficient, very friendly and the perfect balance of being attentive without hovering. Thoroughly recommended.
Absolutely amazing food and wonderful, friendly service. Highly recommend
they seemed under staffed and the food was slow in coming - lovely friendly people though. Tacos were cold and uninspiring. corm was amazing as always
Disappointing. Was not told that our food would be serviced with crickets. How awful.
So good to be back at Mamasita. Banquet was plentiful and delicious. Mezcal margs were 👌
Delicious food and drink. Was my second time here, and both times I left happy.
A bit disappointing, have had better experiences at Mamasita. It was good but nothing special, appetisers were very nice, mains of chicken and rib was nearly without taste. Far too much food, could have dished up less and put more into taste. Also I ordered a drink that never arrived, luckily I wasn't charged.
It was just ok. Expected more for the price. The short rib was pretty bland. Nothing awful, just nothing great.
Great food, pork belly was so tasty and the tacos were amazing...great margaritas too. Staff were very friendly and accommodating.....loved it for a first time visit....
There wasn't much options if you don't particularly eat pork or seafood. Although the food looked great the options were limited.
The service was great with friendly staff.
Unfortunately the pork belly tacos we had were all fat and my partner was quite sick immediately after eating.
Hi, We have reduced our menu for obvious reasons, but have taken your feedback on will discuss in our next Kitchen development session. The pork belly tacos are intended to contain fat as they do when served in Mexico. The wait staff could have easily rectified this for you on the spot with no trouble. Your comment re your partner getting sick immediately after is something we take very seriously. Could you please contact the owner via 9650 3821 and leave a message. Thank you.
Great spot and great Mexican. Will definitely be back.
Plates not cleared accordingly or drinks
We were seated at the bar and it was impossible to get anyone’s attention
First visit here and had to wait a few minutes after set booking time for table to be set even though it was empty before we arrived 10 mins prior to our booking time. Very cramped seating and we had loud group of girls next to us which made it hard to her as they all attempted to talk over each other. We had the $69 banquet and it was nice but nothing special. The main chicken dish was a bit dry and was quite bland. Tacos & corn were tasty. Food service was very rushed, it felt like a fast food restaurant and we had 2 courses served before our Marquarita's arrived. Decor is dated and doesn't suit the style of food. It feels like you in an old Italian restaurant. 5/10 for me.
Our experience at Mamasita on Sat night was disappointing. We waited a very long time for our drinks, our order of extra corn chips never turned up after asking for them twice...the beef rib was undercooked and tough. Way overated... There were so many staff for the small amount of patrons, so no excuse for the poor service.
Not great value for money, the salad was overpriced lettuce, the beef ribs were tasteless and the portions were small and overpriced. The margeritas were really nice though.
Best margaritas in town, amazing service and a great selection of mezcales
My partner and I really enjoyed our night out here. I am vegetarian but he is not and we both loved the food and there were great options for vegetarians and not. The cocktails were yummy and our two servers were so kind and gave us great advice on tequilas and the specials were fantastic! for Fourth of July they had cheeseburger tacos that my partner loved!
Food was very tasty . However waited 50 min for first course ( corn ) which was cold . All food was Luke warm that we had . Have been to mamasita before a few times this was the most disappointing visit .
I love the complex flavours and vegan options thank you
Food was bland, we were told we would have 1hr and 45min to be served out banquet, at the 2 hr mark we had to ask to cancel mains and dessert as we needed to leave (theatre tickets). Most dishes came with corn chips and felt like average food with lots of filler.
Service let our experience down. We were sat at the bar and not asked once by staff how we were getting on. Shame because Cocktails were great as was food.
It was my third time dining at Mamasita, I won’t be back.
Cocktails were mocktails
Food service fast but food lukewarm.
The mole lacked flavour, salt, it was terribly bland. The cauliflower steak tasted like it was made the day before.
I know what food the restaurant can produce and I was shocked.
Beautiful food, great staff, lovely ambience. I would highly recommend!
Great banquet feed other than the main which didn’t hit the mark. All other dishes were great. Quite a loud venue and fairly pricey but worth a look
Hola ScottC, Thanks for your feedback we have passed everything on to management.
Excellent setting and interesting food.
Great and nice staff
Date night went well
