Great food. Great service although some menus listed items were not available. Noise level a little too high and more comfortable seats (vs stools) would be great. But will return.

The staff and service were great. The food...... not so much. I booked a table for dinner for 2 on line earlier in the day. When we arrived the table was really seats at the bar next to the very noisy ice machine. The staff were great and luckily a real table became vacant. There should be some indication when a booking is confirmed that table could also mean a seat at the bar. We may have made the wrong food choice but what we got was ordinary and overpriced for the size of the serving.

I found a hair in my taco. They offered a replacement but by then I was turned off the food. No discount or apology was given

Best Mexican and cocktails in the whole of Sydney; probably whole of Australia. Great vibe, service and aesthetic. Perfect for dates, birthdays, drinks, and just dinner.

Loved the food. The service was very warm and friendly. The only thing that was that we where a party of 5 and the table really was for 4. A little bit squeeze. But definitely will go again.

Prefer the ceviche in the glass. It was a very busy night so service was slow but the staff were very friendly as always and the food was so good it made up for the wait :)

We are regulars at Mexicano and have been since it opened, unfortunately, we have been pretty disappointed with our last few visits. The service is slow and staff have become inattentive. The food seems to be getting more expensive every time we go, now paying $12 for guacamole that, for the last few visits has decreased in quality with a watery texture to it. This place used to be packed every night but we have found it easy to get a reservation about an hour beforehand, or even just as a walk-in, and now we know why. The owner walks around with a drink in hand outside socialising with his mates instead of worrying about how his team are managing the restaurant.

Fast service, including cocktails. Food was hot, tasty, and fresh. Pork taco’s with crackling and pickles were our favourite. Noise was down a bit on last visit, which I appreciated.

Great food. Prompt service. Booked a table for 2 and arrived to be seated on a very high stool at a very cramped bar set up. The place was booked out, I think that if you book a table, it should be a table.

We're so thrilled we chose to take our out of town friends to Mexicano. I can't believe how much effort they made to accommodate our party of 6. Regular phone calls from Josie who did everything she could to fit us in. The food was amazing - great sized portions and super tasty. The trouble was that the margaritas were dangerous - too delicious and very moreish. Hence, when paying the bill I accidentally left an extra $50.00 note, but didn't notice. How do I know this? Well would you believe that one of the extremely professional and friendly waitresses ran out to us, stopped us in the street and gave us back the $50.00. I wish I was richer as I'd have loved to say "hey keep it"... when I win the lottery I'll be back to leave a huge tip! It was a wonderful ending to a really fun fantastic night. Thanks Mexicano.

We have been to Mexicano many times but we haven't been for a while until our recent visit on Friday, 4th October.
This was a special family night where we were able to get our 2 teenage kids to come out with us which is rare. My son loves Mexicano so he chose the venue.
Unfortunately, we found the food was not as good as usual. My son's favourite dishes are the nachos, fries and chimichangas. He is very fussy with food and he would normally order all three of these dishes as he doesn't like anything else. Sadly, we were told you don't do nachos or fries anymore so he only had the chimichangas. The chimichangas were very oily and heavy and he couldn't eat much. I tried one and put half back and even my husband thought the same whereas, he'd normally polish them all off.
My daughter is vegetarian and enjoyed the corn but then ordered the vegetarian tacos. They were soggy and cold. The tacos were a dark brown colour and a weird texture and she couldn't understand why her taco shells were not like ours. She couldn't even pick them up. We thought maybe they were gluten free? She said I am just vegetarian not gluten free or vegan. She was still hungry as she didn't eat much.
Mexicano is the only place where I will order a frozen margarita but mine missed the mark this time as it was very lemony.
Otherwise, the rest of the food was fine and the service was good. I have ticked 'yes' to recommend Mexicano to a friend because we know you are normally better than this and it is a cool venue.
It will be a while before our kids will be convinced to come back and my husband and I feel the same.

Love the menu selection and cocktails but I do think it’s ocerpriced compared to most other Mexican restaurants. Also they desperately need some sound proofing in there!

Some of the dishes were great. E.g corn, wings. But the beef and pork tacos looked and tasted burnt. Even though booked, we were seated on the bar and on uncomfortable high stools.

I am definitely a tad disappointed overall as every time I do come to Mexicano the food and service is amazing, however this time it was below average.
The food wasn’t exceptional like it always has been, the churos were tasteless and eggy (when asked about them and this was relayed) we were told well that’s how they are meant to be, it’s traditional and that’s that.
The service was average.
Bitterly disappointed overall.
It’s a shame that some of the dishes that have been so popular in the past and what I came for, were not available and was informed that there will be a menu change... is this the right thing to do? Will have to wait and see!
