Title says it all. Booked with 1 hrs notice. Had a high chair for the LO. Food was plenty and tasted great. Margarita a must.

My fiance had organised a surprise birthday dinner for me with 20 of my close friends (including some coming from interstate). He had booked Los Amates and paid a cash deposit with everything locked in and confirmed. Just over a week before the event, he was told that the restaurant had double booked so our booking was cancelled even though... More

Hello Jodie, my name is Arturo Morales, owner of Los Amates, I am reading your comment with most shock and bemusement as we have no recollection of any booking for 20 people that we have rejected or cancelled out on the last minute, all of our bookings go into our on-line system therefore we can check as far back as...

After discussing the pros and cons of authentic Mexican food with friends any my initial belief that you had to travel to Mexico for anything remotely good, we decided to visit this so called ‘authentic’ place for breakfast. Wow it was great, I just wish they had the dinner menu available at the same time because there are lots of... More

I took the family here for my birthday dinner and was blown away by the freshness and balance of flavours. The non pretentious decor is authentic, as are the wait staff. Doesn't have the swagger of Mamasita but if it's an authentic Mexican experience you're after you can't go wrong - 5 Sombreros!

This is without doubt, my favourite restaurant. Since I discovered Los Amates on my birthday last year, I have loved visiting frequently. I am currently learning Spanish, and all of the restaurant staff take the time to help me practice, what amazing service. The food is to die for. I have shown all of my friends this restaurant. Everyone I... More

This place used to be my go to Mexican hit in my home town. Now, with all the other mexican places around Melbourne town, it really saddens me to see Arturo let this place slip down into the sad state it is in now. My meal tonight was off the specials board, the meatballs in chipolte sauce. It was served... More

The atmosphere and decor are really nice, especially accompanied by really good friendly service. The food itself though quite average and not particularly good value...unusual for a Mexican restaurant charge for hot sauce.
