Good food but lazy service at the end.

I visited this restaurant this weekend with my friend. The food was brilliant and the atmosphere was good and very busy. The food came out well presented and in good time. We were checked on a few times in the first half of our meal but as service ended the waitresses were very lazy and stood... read more

Food was alright, but overpriced, not what I expected as I had Mexican food before, Went with some friends (11 of us) on weekday so it was quiet, so food was served quickly, Waitress that served us became a little abrupt seemed to be because some of my friends couldn't make up there minds what they wanted. not sure if...

If you're looking for Mexican food and lots of it, this place is definitely for you. The value for money is great as the portions are very big. The filling options are plentiful and you get a complimentary mini margarita when you arrive. Couldn't fault the food or service. Just make sure to bring a large appetite!

We go to the Mexican often. The food is excellent and we often leave having eaten too much!! Only slight negative I would say is they could do with cranking the heating up a bit. Certainly won't stop us going back tho.

Great service, massive food serving but tasty! Lower lighting makes it have a moody but nice feeling to the place. Is very busy and the need to book is a must, they had to turn away at least 5 couples while we were eating! Don't forget to take the free shot and the cocktails are a must!

Have not been in a Mexican restaurant for years. Glad we chose the Mexican. We booked online and got a swift reply. On arrival were given a wee complimentary margarita and nachos. Menu was easy to follow. The starter combo was lovely and plenty for more than 2. Fajita main course was lovely and cleverly on a three tier stand.... More

Delicious food. Great drinks. Nice buzz in the restaurant but it could do with a little more light! Shared nachos for starter. Yummy! Ordered waffles so for dessert. Very strange indeed...2 microwaved toastie waffles with a piece of cake in between and swamped in a soup of hot toffee (ish) sauce and a blob of ice cream. Hmmm...no.

Was saying in Perth for a week on business. Found 'The Mexican' on Tripadviser. Talked to my mates at work. No one had a bd review. I found it to be a very good resturant. Nice atmosphere and a very good selection of mexican food. The food was very tasty and probably the best I have every tasted. The wine... More

Stopped in for some dinner really tasty food good service so definitely worth giving it a try. My only negative would be the tortillas with the fajitas were a bit small would prefer them to be a bit bigger. We tried the deep fried cheesecake not sure wether it was a hit or not but always good to try something... More
