Gluten Free Mexican with friendly team

Hugely buzzy environment where we were told that some nights you queue outside for a table. We didn't have to queue but if we did it would have been worth the wait. Awesomely good gluten free nachos, gluten free tacos, the mamasita speciality corn was incredible - GF naturally and you cannot go... read more

Tuesday night, around 11pm - all tables are taken. Trendy. Make new friends there or bring your own (friends).

It was cold. It was wet and we didn't have a booking, but after a very, very short wait (compared to the wait times we were being quoted elsewhere), we were seated at the bar and had a great night of excellent food, interesting drinks and friendly service from the staff. My dining companion is a bit of a Tequila... More

The service here is snappy, the staff know their stuff - some specialising in food, others in Tequila - you cant go wrong with their recommendations. Dont leave without trying the corn cobs, at least one margarita and most importantly the goat tostadita. Our wait at the door was only around 5 minutes - the place was jumping - great... More

FInally got to dine there for an early Saturday dinner. As I refuse in principle to queue for dinner it had been off-limits so far, but at 5pm we walked straight in. First the place is really loud, a bit dark, etc, so the whole atmosphere was a bit against me to start with on the day...starters were really nice,... More

Great food and quick service. Corn on cob was simply awesome and so was the taco and main course of the day. The proportions were decent too.

The 4th time I've been to this excellent modern Mexican restaurant. The service was great, the food beautiful and the chef even heated up our child's food for us.

I have lived many places where you can find great Mexican food. Melbourne is not really known as a great city for Mexican. But Mamasita's is the exception. You can get a very authentic and tasty Mexican meal. My favorites are the tacos and the roasted corn. Mamasita's is a great place to take a colleague for a business lunch... More
