“Authentic, Innovative, Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

After an amazing dinner at El Publico, this has quickly become a top favorite restaurant in Perth. My fiancé and I are expats from the US, and previously lived in California and Texas, both of which have incredible Mexican food. We were pleasantly surprised by the menu, tequila list, and each dish we ordered at El Publico. Not your typical Mexican menu; very innovative, creative, and many new dishes and styles we've never tried, but loved. Staff was awesome, drinks were delish, decor and ambiance reminded me of the trendy restaurant scene in Austin, Texas. Left smiling and can't wait to go back again soon!

“$60 for three margaritas”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

They were good but stick with the beer. Little Creatures IPA I would highly recommend at the bar across the street whose name I cannot recall.

“Traditional mexican with a twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Finding a restaurant that produces gluten free food that tastes sensational is difficult at the best of times. All the dishes apart from 3 on the menu cater for those with coeliac disease who still enjoy food to taste of gourmet food and not cardboard. It doesn't matter what you order every dish tasted superb.
The staff were relaxed but attentive and informative. This was not your ordinary stodgy mexican food. We left the restaurant vowing to return soon.

“excellent food - but too expensive with drinks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

great food - taste, style and variety. Think a bit steep to not have byo. Drinks ok price but for the style of dining was too experience as an all round night out - or quick meal stop. Keep up the good work and dont forget your tequilla (usp)
