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

The food in here is really great, very nicely seasoned and exceptionally tasty. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are huge! Always busy and bustling when we have been in which shows how good it is :)

We went for an early evening meal and were astounded at the amount of people already in here (the secret is out). Promptly seated and attended to with complimentary little margaritas to help us ponder the menu. We found the food very good, but the portions a little on the large size so no pudding for us, but we did... More

We decided to give this lovely place a go after trying a good few eateries in and around Perth. We had high expectations walking in as we had seen all the amazing reviews, and boy they got it completely right! Lovely atmosphere with dimmed lights, with touches of Mexican decoration. On sitting down at our table we received a free... More
