Thankfully the food was good because the service was lacking.

Waited nearly 15 minutes for someone to take our drink order, and 40 minutes for our low-maintenance meals. Server was friendly, but couldn't have been more inattentive. During the 40 minute wait no one even came near our table to see if we wanted another drink. Our food was hot and fresh. The... read more

The food and service was great for us. Fajitas were delicious as was everything. So pretty sitting on the outside patio right by the river. Would visit again without hesitation.

Went in for dinner and drinks with some friends and enjoyed every minute. I shared the fajita with a friend and we both loved it! Also the service was great and had very kind staff. Definitely coming back in the summer!

I love Mexican food ... I lived in Mexico for a year and know not to expect "true" Mexican food in most places, but this was a joke. 8 of us went for a fun night out and the decor was very cozy, but luckily the company made up for the food. I had vegetarian quesadillas which looked great on... More

After spending an afternoon browsing the shops in Perth, we decided to grab a bite to eat at Mex & Co. We chose this spot mainly because we could sit on the outdoor patio beside the river. The atmosphere on a nice sunny day was spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed the nachos and salsa while waiting for our food. We have... More

Was nice food but would have preferred if our mains didn't arrive 2 minutes after we were served our entrees. Could not believe it. Felt like we were being pushed out & we were the only patrons. Not like they were run off their feet.

We moved to Perth 3 years ago and have been wanting to try Mex & Co. We did last night and what a disappointment it was! We made a reservation as it can get very busy and mentioned it was our anniversary. They did not go out of there way to make it special at all. The food was absolutely... More

Meal was nice, patio was nice as well. At night the mousquitos can be pests but the water view is very nice. The service was great, warm welcome and lots of follow up on everything. Enchiladas were good, guest had the teriyaki burger and looked it too. Not many choices in perth on week nights, everything closes at 9 pm... More

We decided to pop by for a snack and a drink. The setting is absolutely beautiful located along the canal, we had high hopes. Waited almost 10 minutes to be seated and another for a waitress to come by. While taking the order the waitress decided that whatever was going on at the front of the restaurant was more important... More

These guys have no idea what Mexican food is. Surprising since they also own the Stone Cellar, I was told. The salsa is just tomato paste. The guacamole was OK, but the taco shells are merely the same stale precasts as Taco-bell. We had 4 people, each with a different entree, and it was all poorly done. Their Carnitas is... More
