Our Henley Beach restaurant, located opposite Henley Square is a great place to stop for a margarita and a meal before or after a day at the beach. We have taco and tequila bar downstairs, a casual dining room upstairs and a private dining area to accommodate groups. Keep us in mind for private parties, corporate functions and other special occasions!

Was a really good atmosphere with lots of people everywhere. Took about 10 mins to seat us even though we had a booking and when we were ready to order there were no staff in sight. Then when we did order our meals came out super quickly and our table had pretty much finished eating before our drinks had even come out. Overall the night was good but just wish it ran more smoothly.

Great food. Friendly staff. Awesome cocktails. Really need to sort out the stomach turning toilet smell that filled the downstairs bar though. Holy crappy !!

Food and cocktails were yummy, although definitely on the more expensive side for Mexican food. Service was sooooooo slow, we had to flag down a server for everything we needed, it’s so frustrating when you are constantly looking for someone to take your order, get more drinks, order more food, get a bill... would probably go back again, but service needs to be more efficient.

Brilliant food and amazing cocktails! They were out of pineapples and coconuts for two of the margaritas to be served in which was disappointing but still a great night out!

Lovely decor and vibe - looks incredible. Booked a table for 7:30, had to wait 15 mins for it to be ready. Absolute chaos in the bar area and hoardes of people waiting to pay in the same area as you need to wait and where the bar area is. The staff were very polite and I think they were just under staffed and working with an area that’s not very organised. Once we were seated, service was very prompt, food was great and the passionfruit frozen margarita was amazing (they do not skimp on the alcohol! - very generous). All in all we’d go back, but maybe not on a weekend night.

The food and atmosphere was good, service on arrival was a little underwhelming however when we were served the service picked up and was really good. Also, the food came all at once, not a major issue however my friend and I thought the starters would come first then the bigger dishes so perhaps this is good to let patrons know in the future.

Absolutely terrible! Staff were so incredibly rude. Noise levels were insane. Food was ok but nothing special. Old El Paso would’ve been a more economical choice for the same flavour. Staff asked us to leave while we were still eating as apparently the next service was more important despite our $200 bill and the fact we were planning on ordering more drinks. I’ll never darken their door again and I’ve already warned plenty of my friends from making the same mistake. Avoid at all costs. Go to Lucky Lupitas instead - a million times better.

My partner and I came to Mia Margarita for the first time for our anniversary and we had a great experience. Fantastic food,fantastic service, food arrived super fast. Restaurant was clean and had a fun vibe. They catered to gluten free, vegetarian and vegans which was a relief to see. I will be definitely be back to try more from the menu!

A nice experience, however we were not told it was a "sharing menu" and ended up ordering far too much food because the menu wasn't properly explained. The waiter actually told us we needed more for starters, which turned out to be an unreasonable amount of food.

It would of been good to have some suggestions on how to order or whether to share. It kind of ruined the experience.

Service trumps everything. We walked in, didn’t get any recognition for 5 minutes. We’re then put on a table down stairs that was in a door way and every time staff walked through it I got knocked. There was 4 of us, we were put on a table with 3 plates, 3 cups and 3 sets of cutlery (this was never rectified through out the night). We didn’t get menus, weren’t told if it was table service or not and ended up sitting around for 25 minutes while staff walked past out empty table with no acknowledgement... this wouldn’t bother me if you didn’t have a 90 minute table allowance. I had to get up and ask for menus, whether it was table service, where to order etc and the girl didn’t seem slightly interested in the fact we had received no form of customer service and responded with ‘I’ll come take your order if you want’ and then stood at the table waiting for us to tell her what food we wanted when we got the menu 1 minute earlier. The night did get better with us actually being waited on but the beginning of the night ruined everything, and also sitting in a walkway door wasn’t great and I had to watch my head every 5 minutes and no staff even seemed to care. I spend good money and we would have stayed as long as possible but unfortunately as soon as we were done with our food we were our because I was not giving my business to a company whose staff couldn’t give a flying eff whether we were there or not. Food was average. Drinks were great, down stairs was stupidly loud. Staff were rude.

Got to love Taco Tuesday! $5 Coronas & Tacos. Food was delicious. Would love it if you could get a glass of Sangria rather than a litre though.

After reading a few not so good reviews on this site, we decided to make up our own minds because the place looks so good. Our group regularly try new places and were very happy with the whole experience. The staff were extremely friendly. It was a reasonably busy Friday night and we were seated on time. We had our food & drinks served quickly and everything we chose was very nice. It was full of energy with people eating drinking and enjoying themselves. Definately want to go back again.

Staff were very friendly, but strangely didn't know the names of menu items (our waiter requested we say what the item was rather than the name it was given, eg. for 'elotes' we had to request 'the corn'). It was odd. Some of the menu items (including the corn) have Spanish names but not all, but maybe just change the item name if your staff don't understand the Spanish names. Despite limited staff knowledge, service was outstanding.
The food was passable - overpriced given the quality. Classic margaritas were very sweet. The place was FILTHY though. Overall, not sure I would go back..

There was nothing particularly wrong with my meal at all. It was just okay - just like the service and the value for money. I wasn't super impressed but wasn't let down either. Just wasn't really all that memorable. Its hard to find really good Mexican food these days, its almost too modernized, and needs to be bigger, street sized serves.
