A very upscale/fancy type of Mexican. The cocktails were fantastic! Would highly recommend one of these to start off your meal. We ordered some of the corn (very nice-but you will need 1 serve per person). We then had 6 plates of tacos (they come with 3 per plate). The beef, fish and vegetarian were my fave- but pork and chicken are also delicious. The tacos are quite filling. Next time would like to order some of the other dishes as well! We spent about 35-40$ pp. and all got a drink.

Great food and very attentive service. I was hoping for a few more authentic Mexican options, having just come back from a trip to Mexico, but the menu was a lot more authentic than most Mexican restaurants in Sydney.

The noise was a little loud - it was busy - and the large table made it hard to hear each other sitting opposite each other.

Otherwise a very enjoyable experience and would recommend it to friends!

Thanks

Everything was very positive about our night - food excellent, great service and ambiance. The only negative that would be a simple fix for Mexicano was that the seats outside were backless and uncomfortable and the table was wobbly so you couldn’t lean on it or drinks would get spilled.
We will definitely be back though! Yum!

Great food! The restaurant was very noisy even though we were sitting outside. We could barely engage in conversation. Quite expensive for example a half piece of corn is $6. It’s amazing but that price is pretty ridiculous

My husband and I were disappointed to be told that this local restaurant was not BYO. We were further disappointed to be told after purchasing a bottle of wine that if we didn't finish it, we wouldn't be allowed to take the remainder home. Further insult to injury - when offered water, which we replied 'just tap water', a fee of $2.00 was placed on the bill - we didn't even want water, at other restaurants it is a complimentary courtesy! Also serving sizes - there was three of everything - I didn't appreciate the 'upselling to four pieces' for every menu item we selected. I didn't see many 3 seated tables, so I can only imagine serving sizes of three is an upselling tactic.

Disappointed! won't go again!

The food is the highlight... it is so yum. The highlights were the corn and the fish taco's. The restaurant has lots of atmosphere and the staff were friendly and efficient. Some people may love a loud environment but we found it difficult to hear each other when we were seated inside. We were fortunate there was an outside table so we moved.

Heard so many good things, but was truly disappointed. We had to reorder our meals 3 times as the chef was not happy with our selection. I ordered the bar bouquet only to be told minimum of two orders. I need to add that it was never indicated on the menu. The waitress then argued that is why they were there. Then they should not bother to advertise it on a menu. Secondly I ordered the chicken crouqets for my little one who has a pork allergy. The chicken nugget turned out to be a chicken cheese en bacon ball. Halfway through I realised what my child was eating and needless was up with a sick child most of the night. Nope did not do it for me.

I enjoyed the service but the food needs a kick, we feel you have down played the true experience.... we came before and it had some kick... we enjoyed the Margarita but the food was carm... too carm.

You need to be true to the flavour your promoting and all the dishes I was told to try you don’t have ...... service was superb

Everyone was really friendly there and I would say it is the best experience I have had there since going for the first time in 2011. Thank you Mexicano
