Great Mexican

I ate at this restaurant with friends and we had a great meal. The corn on the cob entree is to die for and the food very tasty. The margaritas were awesome and very strong! It's a fairly noisy restaurant and a bit hard to find but well worth a visit.

Aside from its really clever and catchy name, Mamasita probably serves one of the best Mexican food in Melbourne. That explains the long line during dinner. My favourite dish is their grilled corn. Yes, it may sound really peasantly, but boy, it sure brings your perception of these Mexican street food to a whole new level. It is a MUST... More

It is a very popular restaurant and they do not take reservations so either you go really early or really late. We were there at 830 and only had to wait 15mins for a table - pretty lucky I would say. Order the Corn on the cob - delicious! Seasoned with chili and cheese this is just heavenly! The crispy...

My friend and I dined here recently on a trip to Melbourne, after hearing great reviews. It certainly did not disappoint! It was extremely busy and we had to wait on the stairs about half an hour for a table, but was definitely worth it. The place was buzzing and the food was SO good!! I walked out extremely full,...

We have dined here a few times and have found the food absolutely delicious every time...and there Margarita's and sooo good that you certainly don't want to drive here as you will want more than one of them!...try the chilli Margarita for something with a bit of extra zing! Wait staff are also awesome...look forward to our next trip south... More

I came here and requested a good chair due to a backache. There was an odd number of people and they refused to move the tables together. The personnel was not cooperative at all.

We had fish, prawn and chicken mole tacos, all were good albeit pricey and served on a very tasty soft corn tortilla. The chorizo quesadilla was less impressive. The main problem is their lack of salsas. Instead if pico de gallo or roasted chipotle salsa, they offer a bunch of mayo/cream based spreads for a hefty $3 each. Luckily the... More

Amazing experience! Fast service, tasty cocktails and last but not the very least, FANTASTIC Mexican food!! I really wish my stomach was bigger as I would have devoured all food items in the menu. The queue is long, be there early. The turn around is quite quick, if you don't mind waiting, you should definitely go for it. I recommend... More

Wow, make sure you have the ceviche.. yummy yummy yummy... this place does excellent service although they can be a bit snobbish at times. Excellent cocktails though. Will definitely be going back.

We went to this restaurant on recommendation by a friend and we were not disappointed. The food was fresh and delicious. Tacos were really good. Cviche was average. They have some good selection of cocktails.
