About

Inspired by a trip to Mexico, local Restaurant Owners Jill & Cam Henderson and Josh Watt opened Mi Mexiko in late 2015. Inspired by the fresh and simple flavours of the food on their travels as well as the fun and colourful approach to dining, they opened Mi Mexiko with a vision to bring the authenticity of Mexico to Mornington. Partnering with Executive Chef Dave Ryan, they have created a menu that truly amplifies this vision. The simplicity of the food is what makes it intriguing and remarkable.

We recommend their signature dish the slow cooked pork hock with black molasses mole, anchiote chilli, greet apple & fennel slaw, crackling and locally made corn tortillas. This pairs brilliantly with Mi Mexiko’s own house made Margarita and the only Margarita you’ll find on tap in Mornington.

Not sure what all the hype is about! Food wasn't that great, the music was up so loud that everyone spoke even louder and you couldn't even have a conversation with the other people at your table. Everything was difficult to eat which took the enjoyment out of eating the food when you have to eat taco's with a knife and fork!

Really good value for money, ordered the ‘feed me’ and there was so much food we couldn’t eat it all!! It was delicious food and great size portions. Our waitress was so lovely and explained each item as they came out and was extremely polite with a constant smile on her face. Would definitely recommend and will be back!

Great food & atmosphere!
We had the chefs menu which was great value for the huge amount of food you got! Perfect for people who can’t choose just one thing off the menu.
We’ll definitely be back!!

Great overall service and food. However towards the end of the night the table service dropped. We weren’t checked in on for more drinks or dishes cleared and we assumed because it was getting to the end of the night

The food was delicious! Meals are served as tapas and come out as they are ready, so it’s great if you’re sharing. The meals came out really fast and the flavours were really good. Prices are good value for money and the serving staff were helpful. Slightly disappointed that they changed their menu and there weren’t as many vegan options as when we’d been previously. Vibe is great but loud in the small space - so it’s great for group bookings or parties, wouldn’t be as good for a small intimate dinner. Overall good experience!

We had a great night for my son’s birthday celebration. Great squarish table for a large group (14) so much better than a long table. Good good, atmosphere good, children enjoyed it as well
It was on the expensive side as we had tasting menu which they like you to have for group bookings. But it saved us all knowing what to select, plus we were prepared for the cost as the drinks also bump the price up. Overall we had a great night and I would recommend it for a fun night out, especially for a group booking. Plus my daughter in law made a fabulous Mexican themed birthday cake.

We dined on a Friday night and was given bar seating for the two of us which we weren't expecting. However, the staff were very friendly throughout the whole night and all the bartenders ensured we had a nice time and always checked on us and asked if we needed more drinks. We actually ended up really enjoying sitting up at the bar and I think we would book and request to sit there again.
The food was amazing. All the dishes are designed to be shared and came out with a nice gap between choices. Highly recommend the chicken wings if you are after something with a bit of a kick behind it.
Overal a great dining experience and delicious Mexican food. We will be back.

Margaritas were delicious! Told myself I was only having one, ended up with three...
My friend and I ordered dinner, and the waitress forgot to put the order through so we ended up waiting for a very long time. BUT the staff were very attentative and kept asking if we were fine (we kept saying yes as we thought our food was coming!) and were super apologetic after they realised the mistake. We were totally fine with it -- these things do happen! And we greatly appreciated a small discount as compensation. Because of how well everything was handled I would come back and recommend for sure!

Took my girlfriend and her son from the Gold Coast and his girlfriend on Saturday night . The weather was just about to turn windy and we were glad when we told them our booking we were inside . We ordered a mocktail ,cocktails and wine and it was all perfect . We ordered a variety of foods from the menu and we shared them all . They were all fantastic . So tasty . Great flavours . The staff were so friendly . Gave us all the attention we needed. Great first time we will be back .

My second time here and once again not disappointed. After ordering the Chef's selection and advising staff of an allergy an off the menu dessert was made up for me as all options I could not eat. I would have been happy to skip dessert but was offered instantly to have this made for me!

This was our second visit to the restaurant (after a wonderful first experience), we were highly disappointed this time round.
Upon arrival our table was unavailable despite making a booking and this should’ve been the sign that things weren’t on point that night.
We ordered the Feed Me banquet and food came out super fast and continued to do so until the last two dishes. We waited over 45 minutes without any service and were ignored while we waited for the next 2 tacos to arrive.
Finally we were acknowledged and told our docket had been crossed off and the kitchen had thought we had finished. Our waiter then even admitted she’d noticed us sitting there dumbfounded 15 minutes ago yet didn’t bother to come over and enquire.
We asked to leave and forget about the last two courses and were then told they’d be right out. Another 15 mins later we get up to leave and finally our dessert comes out in a take away container.
Such a disappointing experience as the food is quite nice but for some reason Feb 14 had the worst service I have ever experienced.

I love going to Mi Mexiko for a fun, friends catch up dinner. The atmosphere is always upbeat with prompt service. My last visit was slightly annoying as we were seated right on the curb of busy main street with no partition. It didn't ruin the evening but I'd avoid this next time if sitting outside.

We previously lived in the city close to some excellent Mexican places and we have been meaning to try Mi Mexiko for a while, and we went for the first time on the weekend and it didn’t disappoint! The share plate chicken was amazing, the food was filling and delicious. Definitely up there with our previous favourite Mexican eateries.
