I have wanted to visit Mamasita for as long as I have been Gluten Free. It didn't disappoint. Dinner was fabulous. We didn't wait long for a table & the staff were awesome about explaining the menu & looking after our needs. And the food? We it was great. Delicious & fresh I would go back when in Melbourne next.... More

Arrived on Friday night at 5.45pm and waited 25mins which was good. Inside is cosy and fun. Needs a little more ventilation but had a good atmosphere. Excellent service - our waiter spent time going through the menu and dishes, often returning to our table throughout the meal. Mocktails weren't very good- tried two and left most of it behind...

Delicious Mexican food and wonderful staff who were happy to help us choose from an extensive menu. We were there for an early lunch so no waiting for a table. If we had been in Melbourne longer we would have gone back for another visit because there were a great many dishes we still needed to try. They had a... More

Been back after a while and was delighted to see that the food is still great, very authentic and tasty. Love that you can now finally book for lunch and not line up! Great Mexican in the heart of the cbd - recommended!

We have been in Melbourne for the last 10 days and had this place recommended to us. After eating out twice a day for that time we have got to know a fair few places. None of them match this one for food and service. The staff we outstanding. No waiter standing outside trying to drag you in here....they don't... More

I'm surprised how busy this place is. Very popular and won't take reservations. But I won't go back again. Very average Mexican food. The corn was just okay. Apparently the corn is their signature dish. Quesadillas and tacos are very average. No outstanding Mexican flavours. Worth part is there was a piece of plastic in our Sangria drink jug! Waitress...

Mamasita was recommended by an Aussie friend when my husband and I were traveling to Melbourne. It was definitely worth the sudden storm we had to put up with after our lunch. The best seafood tacos I've ever had. Their guacamole was very good as well (I've had better in the states). Loved the flavours here. It's just really, really... More

Visited here early on a saturday night &.were seated without a wait. Service was a bit dodgy, although once we had someone's attention & made a friendly connection, she became helpful. The food had a funky twist to it, the taco selection delicious. Definitely worth a visit. Oh and its above a convenient store, just a tad difficult to find!

It was the declaration of not one but two friends upon hearing I was going to Melbourne that I simply MUST check out Mamasita that lead to us heading there on our 'lets just take it easy' Sunday night. I think we got lucky - no lines for us and only a short wait before we were escorted to our... More
