Chance to catch up with an old friend so booked a table at Mexico. Lovely young lady showed us to our table and was attentive while we ordered drinks and perused the menu. The food was superb throughout (nachos, fajitas, cassoulet); the wine delicious and inexpensive and the ambience just right for... read more

Confusing menu, slow service and microwaved overpriced greasy food, starter of nachos took 30 minutes and arrived cold with straight from the jar salsa,guacamole and sourcream on Doritos....traditional Mexican food this is not, injury to insult was the price of the starter, mains arrived superheated "fresh" from the microwave and swimming in grease and water, tasted old and frozen, overall...

My wife and I ate at Mexico on Saturday 25 October to get us in the mood for our forthcoming honeymoon, to where else but Mexico (the real one)! Having eaten here myself a number of years ago, I was hopeful that the experience would be as it was back then. Unfortunately this was not to be the case. On... More

My friends & I ate here for a birthday celebration. The service was good, it was early evening & quiet. They had no mojitos available as they had no mint! The food was average, nothing particularly special and nothing better than getting generic Mexican food from any other place! (Fajitas/enchiladas/nachos). The portions were ok but the enchiladas hardly had any... More

We chose Mexico for birthday our celebrations. Atmosphere was ok. We enjoyed our starter's. When our mains came the waitresses got a couple mixed up. We were given wrong meals and one meal never arrived. When we complained a man came over. We told him about what had happened. His handling of our complaint was horrendous. He made it all... More

Below average experience with a sense that they can't be bothered. Service friendly enough. Why use cheap and stale tasting tortilla chips in the nachos. And limited margarita and Mexican beer options. Food really was a bit bland.
