Loaded Nachos and chimichanga were top notch but I was disappointed with the drink mojito. No flavor in it. But I will come back for the food less the mojito. The staff and the service was good.

Feeling pretty let down, we've been supporting Mexico City Elsternwick for quite a while now (including through lockdown by ordering directly from them), and honestly I don't know what was going on. Maybe they're under new management or maybe the old management is slipping, but it doesn't rank higher than an average meal. The staff ignored us once they took our drinks order and were taking food orders from multiple tables that arrived after us; no idea how long it would have gone on for, but I called over a staff member & got a bit of attitude for my effort. After they brought our food (where they ignored our request for increased spiciness), we were again ignored for the rest of the evening, missing out on opportunities to sell us more drinks. It was busy, but not as crazy busy as we've seen it, so that can't be a reason for not coping- or preparing decent food: maybe there's new staff in the kitchen, because the food wasn't anywhere as good as on previous occasions. Hopefully they'll bounce back, it's the only Mexican-ish resto in Elsternwick Village
