I visited recently with my fiance for a celebration meal/date night. My fiance is from Perth originally and has told me all about the restaurant but we only went together for the first time in July and it was worth the wait! The service was excellent - very friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere is good. Their is an authentic... More

Really nice restaurant with a warm atmosphere and very friendly, attentive staff. I went here a few weeks ago with family - we each ordered different dishes and each found them delicious. The sharing platter as a starter is especially good. I have to say, though, that more than half of the food put in front of us ended up... More

Cannot fault the food or service - massive portions and massive taste - one of the best restaurants in Perth without a doubt - we will certainly be back!

As always it was a delight to have visited again. Perth lacks in the good food department but not at The Mexican. Exellent food served by great friendly staff. I can never fault the place. Best place for food in Tayside.... If not scotland.

Another great visit to this fantastic restaurant. Can never fault it! Both of us had the Quesadillas for main course....first time I had tried the Cajun chicken and I wasn't disappointed......great and just spicy enough! Great service and atmosphere....really busy which is great to see. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant .

This restaurant is definitely worth going to for any Mexican food lover. The staff are friendly and welcoming and provided tortilla chips with salsa while we looked at the menu. I would also recommend the strawberry margarita. Great value for money as well compared to other Mexican restaurants I've been to.

This was a fantastic find on Trip Advisor, and worthy of the excellent reviews. A free portion of freshly made nachos arrived at the table while we viewed the menu, and the three different dishes ordered were superb. Great portions of fresh food, all very well presented. One suggestion, the dishes of cheese and salsa could be bigger to reflect... More

Great impact on arrival - comp. tortilla chips and margaritas as well as a really cute lit candle feature on the table. The food was outstanding in terms of quantity and value for money. The starters were very nice (nachos and cheese-filled jalapenos) but when the mains arrived...oh boy. We had both ordered chicken fajitas and when the waitress brought... More
