main course was huge, if you enjoy your puddings have a starter and pudding and forego the main. The mains we had were delicious, good ambience, clean warm loos, central location. very good prices.

Arrived in Perth on a Friday night, and following other Tripadvisor reviews we headed to The Mexican. Weren't sure if we would be accommodated, without a reservation, but were given a table with no problem (although right next to the door at the kitchen which was a little draughty, however we were just pleased to have a table!). Very quickly... More

3rd visit and again food excellent. Value for money with very good staff, not overbearing but always close at hand when required. Four adults 2 courses plus drinks for £80. Can't go wrong and worth reserving a table.

Visited this restaurant on Saturday 24th January. The food was divine, staff were very friendly, welcoming and the atmosphere in the restaurant was lovely. We sat quite comfortably for hours. We had 2 diferent types of fajitas. The portion sizes were huge and everything was cooked to perfection. Wonderful evening and highly recommend this restaurant. Extremely well priced too.

I have had many excellent meals there -personally i love the Chicken fahitas. The Mexican lager is an interesting brew -totally different from anything... More

Came here for the first time recently and was VERY impressed. Didn’t have a reservation but was lucky enough to get a table, but I think we were very lucky as it soon got very busy. While looking though the menu we overheard one of the staff explaining the dishes, and which were suitable for anyone with a gluten intolerance,... More
