Nice setting and a decent menu, but food was rather heavy and not overly tasty. You can get much better Mexican at other places in Newtown and other suburbs.
Izote has been around for a while in Newtown but to me I think it will get left way behind. With lots of Mexican restaurants opening in Sydney serving far better food Izote needs to pick it up a gear. We both had Fajita's, prawn and chicken, the prawn was fairly bland and the chicken was in a strange sauce... More
We had a group of 25 for my husband's 40th birthday and they placed us in our own private section in the back courtyard. The set up was perfect as we had three large tables which allowed for easy access to seats for everyone. The way it was laid out and with my husband at the head of one of... More
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our time at this little gem if a restaurant. The building itself wasn't much to look at, but we were hardly there for the scenery. We ordered the Tequila Prawns to share as a starter, they were absolutely beautiful and not in a short supply, there would have been 8-10 large prawns with rice.... More
This must be the best Mexican food in Sydney. The last two postings both were disappointed. I cannot understand it. They were obviously on a negative down at the time. Sure a liquor license would make this restaurant better but byo is also good if you are prepared! We had a fantastic meal and tried different dishes shared amongst us.... More
The restaurant s very pleasantly decorated. We were sat out the back - which was fine. We had the ceviche. It was ok - cut into chunks rather than thinly sliced. Flavours were good and tortillas with it were fantastic. I had the beef nachos. They were ok , plenty of corn chips an cheese with some shredded beef with... More
I ordered the quesadillas which were $22. Same price for chicken, beef, bean and tofu (weird). I think that's a bit unfair for vegos. Some guacamole, sour cream, a fresh and cooked salsa, and a lot of chicken in the bread. Some what appeared to be jalapeños from a jar (the sliced kind). It was huge and I couldn't finish... More
The food was really good, definitely a cut above the usual Mexican dishes. My prawn fajitas consisted of a large pile of very tasty prawns accompanied by just the right amount of wraps. The ceviche also deserves a mention as it was delicious. The restaurant does not have a licence which is a bit of a shame as a large... More
The food was good. We had a 'new' waiter who did not really seem to understand the dishes on the menu, but given that we did, it was not a problem. My only issue is that the food came out too fast (almost before we ordered it ! ), making me think that it was all pre-prepared. It tasted good,... More
