Another casualty of the Sydney dining scene

Unfortunately, I have had my last meal at Vera Cruz.

Wandered there last night and couldn't see the familiar blue and white sign - gone and replaced by a pizza place - nothing wrong with pizzas but there are already a few in the area and there are not many good Mexican restaurants in Sydney. It will be missed.

This is not your average Tex-Mex burritos and tacos. A good variety of choices on the menu and quite authentic for what is eaten in Mexico. Good value and good quality real Mexican food.

We just had a main-course here with wine after our movie at the Orpheum. It was quite tasty, nothing flash but nicely presented and I'd go back. Total cost $50. I left feeling happy and replete.

after continually saying we'd eat here, we finally did, and now wish we'd eaten here sooner. Inventive Mexican - fully of flavour, great beer and tequila list, brilliant service and CHURROS!!

Best Mexican that i've ever had - obviously haven't been to Mexico yet. NOT your typical tacos and burritos... has some great interesting menu choices and the staff are great.

Went there for my birthday, and on a Tuesday it is very quiet, the staff is attentive. Don't know about busier nights. The décor could be a little more inviting but otherwise the meal is amazing.
