Delicious food (and margaritas.....)

Four of us had a delicious shared meal here. There are plenty of options available for differing dietary requirements and most of the menu is gluten free. Every dish we ordered was excellent and if you end up not having ordered enough it's easy to add more on at the end. There is a variety of... read more

Mamasitas gets rave reviews from Hotel Concierges. The last time we were in Melbourne we queued up for about half an hour before leaving the line as the wait time was quite ridiculous. On our recent trip to Melbourne we went there at about 5.30pm and managed to get a table. The Restaurant isn't huge so that explains the lines... More

The greatest Mexican food we have tasted. Our family from country Victoria met up here and enjoyed the atmosphere. Our waitress explained and menu made recommendations and provided exceptional service. We made a booking which is worth doing as Mamasita’s was very busy.

Wow! We had a midweek lunch and it was such a great experience that I can't wait to get back there. We ask the waitress to bring out her recomendations and we werent disappointed. The food was flavoursome and ranged from bold to delicate from dish to dish. The corn was a standout. The service was refreshingly lovely. Not at... More

This is the most over rated restaurant i have ever been to! It is all Hype, having to wait in line and not able to make reservations is pure marketing. The food was lacking and a major disappointment. - if you want Mexican food you are better off going amigos.

This place is still smashing it in terms of Mexican food , absolutely love it. We had a chefs selection with a table of ten , and it was all fantastic and so much food. Best bit we did not have to line up down the stairs just walked in with a group booking. The corn is still my favorite... More

We were recommended this place and, yet again, it is another Melbourne restaurant which does not take bookings (sigh). It was busy on a Sunday evening but, worse than most Melbourne restaurants with no booking system, you have to queue upstairs! However, they efficiently brought us menus to peruse while waiting and the queue went down quickly. We quickly ordered... More

Not taking bookings, we arrived at 6.30 and had a drink at the bar before being seated before 7pm. We tried a little bit if everything tapas style and it was all fantastic. The signature corn is definitely worthy of its reputation and the chorizo quesadilla and pork belly were highlights. Staff were very friendly but slightly inattentive when it... More
