Nestled in the buzzing Paddington Five Ways, you’ll find Tequila Mockingbird in a heritage-listed, converted 1898 terrace. There are three unique spaces to dine in, each with their own special character and atmosphere.There’s a whole lot more to Latin food than burritos and fajitas. It’s actually a wide range of food, all the way from Mexico to Argentina. A unique blend of Mayan, Aztec, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, and Afro Caribbean flavours, Latin American food is diverse, unexpected, and most importantly, delicious!If you love a great cocktail with your meal, you may have found your new favourite restaurant. With over 32 types of premium tequilas, 12 top-quality mezcals, and a generous range of piscos, your Latin American journey doesn’t stop at the food.But beyond the great food and great drinks, is the vibe the team brings. Tequila Mockingbird has created a fun, personal atmosphere that reflects the spirit and life of Latin America.

Had a table of nine ladies there for a fun girls night. Waiter didn’t provide menus rather reeled off what was on the set menu despite several allergies and vegetarians present. Took drink orders after I got his attention several times, and even then stood at one end of the table and didn’t note them properly or go around to each person, so he said I’ll put these through and come back for the rest. He didn’t come back for ages so there were three thirsty women waiting a long time for a cocktail. Won’t be back.

Absolutely love this place and am a regular. However, last experience wasn’t as good as usual ☹️ Very slow service meant a very, very late night. Also, being forced to choose either a 6.30 or 8.30 sitting on weekends is not ideal.

Meeting friends for midweek dinner, we were really looked after.
Food is delicious, cocktails superb and staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
We shared ceviche tacos, soft shell crab tacos, zucchini nachos, Barramundi and chicken. All full of flavour. Their tequila list is impressive. We will definitely return.

Took a friend for Sunday brunch and she loved it. My partner who was previously unimpressed with our last visit was also won over. I have always loved the food, service and vibe of Tequila Mockingbird. It is definitely one of my best of Sydney experiences for visitors to Sydney.

The format of Raw, Street, Flame, Sides, Sweets was a great way to dine and the choices within each category were exquisite. Whilst there were a number of 'standouts' if asked to pick one, it would be the Eggplant Nachos

Amazing food and a nice atmosphere. We went when it was busy and placed in very close proximity to a very large noisy group so it was hard to make conversation, but the food more than made up for it. The food came out fast, the drinks were delicious and the staff friendly. Price is relatively expensive (we had the $75 tasting menu) but the food is excellent

I would say everything was really nice ,french guys who served us and a girl. Food was good and price is fine if they give u bit bigger size, and they should serve torillas with mains. At least one.

We had to wait about an hour between the street dishes to the main which seemed a lot longer than we’ve had to wait when we’ve been before the food was too nice to complain though

Hi Annt, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your feedback, you're definitely right - an hour between dishes is much longer than we'd expect.
