    Very pleasant. Great service, and great food, and a great variety of food in the banquet with fast and timely service. We were all happy :)/ Awesome to see the sun go down from the outdoor table on balcony. One thing, to remember, if on the balcony, to bring a jacket as it can get cool when the sun goes down.

    Table wasn’t ready &amp; when it was we were 2 seats short &amp; sat in a drafty traffic way. All meals served but 3 of our courses didn’t come until 2hours after the first &amp; everyone had finished. One of our party had a hair in her nachos. Sangria was like watered down cordial. Service was very slow to get a drink. Disappointed.

    We did the banquet and the food was nice, but the service to get started was very slow. A great buzz if you're looking for a louder upbeat dining experience.

    We had a great night out! Fantastic margaritas and food! We had a few drinks at the bar while we waited for our table to be ready and I had to remind the staff we were waiting on a table after 20 minutes of waiting but we didn’t mind because we were having such a great time and they apologised. Would definitely go back!

    had the most amazing night out at mexicali! went with a friend for monday margarita night and had a blast. staff were super friendly and welcoming which made the experience so much better. we ordered birria tacos which were to die for, as were the strawberry and watermelon margs for only $10! would definitely recommend this place to family and friends for a small dinner or even a birthday get together. thanks again guys for an awesome night, we will definitely be back! m

    We were so happy with our dinner here! We had the Mexicali banquet for 4 people and we’re definitely satisfied. The food was amazing and coming on Margarita Monday was an even better idea! Who can go wrong with $10 coconut Margs! The end of our banquet was delayed a little bit but the tacos made up for this 🤤 will definitely be back here 👏🏼

    My partner and I visited the Gold Coast for 6 days. We came here 2 times for dinner because we loved it that much!! I would simply get on an airplane again just to experience those fish tacos and beef brisket tacos again!! Service was phenomenal, and the food is just immaculate!

    The best! Service from all staff were impeccable, friendly and attentive! Every bit of the Chefs banquet and margi’s (coconut, chilli, watermelon and a sweet baby Jesus cocktail - all amazing) were delicious, with our fave being the chargrilled prawns and Moreton bay big tacos! Perfect noise level and ambience. Just a bombdiggity of a place 👌🏼

    Overall good little casual place with good vibes. Only thing I fault on this occasion was when it was time for us to move along from our booking so the next time slot could be seated, when asked if there was anywhere at all we could sit, we were told no when in fact we just shuffled outside to the back to finish our drinks and sat on the beach and stills that were not taken and they didn’t offer.

    The food was great the chefs banquet was a great set of food for the restaurant, we bought the drinks package and the food and drink combo was amazing. To top it off our waitress Paris was great she never got a drink order incorrect, this overall experience made our last night in the Gold Coast very memorable. Would be there again next time.
