Had a great meal at this place, early evening. Great service by friendly waitress. Best Enchiladas I've had, served with potato wedges and salad. Good enough kick to the spicy sauce, but not overpowering.

We had to ask for the pudding menu and our bill as I felt we had been forgotten slightly though. We shared nachos as a starter. They were ok but... More

Visited on a quiet Sunday night and we were the only ones in the restaurant so service was 100% fast and fresh food reasonably priced perhaps a little expensive for a beer I could imagine on a busy night with the right atmosphere this could be a great place I would eat here again..

My boyfriend and I were staying in Exmouth for a night and visited the Mexican as it was close to our hotel. We had the special quesadilla and garlic chilli bread to start - both were perfect! Freshly cooked and nicely presented. I had the rump steak for main and my boyfriend had the burger - my steak was cooked... More

I went to The Mexican with my partner for a lunchtime meal, we had seen the two meals for £9.95 and wanted to try it out. We ended up both having chilli, unfortunately there are not fajitas or burritos, those sort of things on the special menu but the chilli was great and we saw other people having burger which...

Another brilliant visit to the Mexican! Started as 17, increased to 23 and yet again they were friendly, accommodating, professional and got everything right on the food. Thank you for another great night - proof of why we have been loyal customers for years!
