Average Mexicali Rosa Experience

We wandered in (up from the street level) because the face of the restaurant says Mexi's. Once we got up the stairs, we realized this was a Mexicali Rosa's... but we were hungry and limited on time, so we stayed to eat despite the chain affiliation. The branding mixup continues through the place... read more

I came here with my friend and we were planning for long time to visit the place. The place had a perfect atmosphere to come after a long week and relaxing in the night with a glass of Margarita with mango flavour. We both were Vegetarians so we ordered Vegetarian Fajitas and Burrito Bowl. The quantity was good and the... More

My wife and I both had taco platters. Food was good and portions large for the price. We also had a good server and service was fast. The two downsides are first, the place is somewhat difficult to find and we drove past it. The sign is rather small and can be overlooked. Second, it requires climbing a decent set... More

Had dinner and drinks with four friends last evening and were very pleased to get a table on the patio. Our server was very efficient, pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu and drinks. The cocktails were average but we were all very pleased with the food. We were sitting very close to the speakers so when the Latin music started... More

There were only 5 people eating lunch at 1:30pm on a Saturday. Service was fair, but the food was good. My wife got the vegetarian quesadilla, and I had a Tijuana wrap, both of which were good. The chips before ordering were over cooked and over salted, but the pico sauce was great--just the right zing!

I ordered the Club Quesadilla , and it was down right terrible . There was water running out of the quesadilla when it was picked up and there was barely any cheese inside it. I will never go back to this place again .Service was average .

the cost has really increased since the last time I've been and the portions decreased. I had the taco salad and asked for spicy beef. Not spicy and really not good. The edible bowl was slightly stale. Will not return.

I was excited to find Mexicali Rosa's in Halifax. The food was excellent and plentiful. Had the Bruschetta as an appetizer, it was amazing. We were a party of five and all had different entrees, everyone enjoyed the food. Will definitely go again when visiting Halifax.
