Good solid food and is very popular with the local office crowd. No bookings taken so either come really early or really late to get a place otherwise you will need to wait hours for a table. The tacos were great and drinks too but there's a few things which aren't so good like the tamale. Worth a visit if... More

Won't take bookings, tell you to come 15 minutes before you want to be seated then tell you the earliest table is in 45 minutes. Disorganised, waste of time. Don't bother.

Went with my daughter and son, the waitress who served us was so polite and friendly. Since it was our first time there, she gave us a commentary on the menu and because of her, we were able to order food that we like. Loved the bite size tortillas, nachos etc etc. However being in my sixties, did not like... More

If fresh, authentic Mexican is what you're seeking, at the Paris-end of Melbourne than this is it. Small seating area, perfect for a boozey lunch or you'll be waiting down the stairs for a table. I recommend almost anything on the menu, from booze to food, Mamasita has it down to a tee. recommend do not pass go, for the... More

We went here for lunch on a Saturday and we had to line up out the front as the place is popular. Upon walking the stairs to be seated we are greated by a heavily tattooed girl who was by far the rudest waitress ive met. Ok we didn't book thats our fault but after being read the riot act... More

I had heard much about this place and on arriving it seemed as popular as we had been lead to believe with a line down the stairs and a 45 Min wait for a table. Like many trendy places I have been lately the seating was not great, the style of less is more maybe starting to go to far.... More

We went here since our friends from Melbourne took us here. Good atmosphere although a bit loud- more bar atmosphere than restaurant. Menu was quite varied and we tried various things. Most of the food was quite nice although a couple of dishes were disappointing and some of the portion sizes are small to say the least. Including drinks, it... More

From all the hype about this place i was a little disappointed. I expected big things but thought it was pretty average. It was very crowded and quite warm as well which didn't make the experience much better.
