Nice Mexican

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..

We visit The Mexican a lot as we live in Exmouth, it always delivers great food, great atmosphere and a lovely general ambiance. Staff are welcoming, the owners know many guests by name, food is fab, what more can I say?! Visit it and see for yourself!

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!

This Mexican themed restaurant is in the middle of Exmouth, is rather spacious and with a beer garden at the back. The food on the menu was average fusion fare but good value for money. We had a two-for-one lunch time special menu and it was well done. Our Mexican burgers were obviously home-made and NOT frozen supermarket stuff. The... More

I have been many many times and each time services is excellent and timely, food is fresh and good value. Refreshing to find decent vegetarian foods! No matter what size party, service is still excellent and not compromised. Can it recommend enough - especially in the garden in summer!

As a local I've been to The Mexican lots of times over the years and it's always enjoyable. Friendly service that's usually very efficient, the decor is great, the menu is yummy and varied and there are interesting specials, would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

Had a meal here a few nights ago whilst on holiday. Very good selection & very enjoyable. I had the sweet potatoes for starter & my husband had the ribs. Good sized portion. For mains we had the enchilada; I had the chicken & he had the chicken & chorizo special. They were stuffed full & came with very tasty... More
