"Value" means different things to different people. To some it is how many kilograms of food do you get per dollar spent, and if I were rating that way I wouldn't give La Cholita a 5. (Probably still a 4 though). Eating & drinking in Perth is not cheap. That's a given. But when I have a top notch experience I don't really care about that. Firstly, the staff at La Cholita are fantastic. The place was bursting at the seams tonight when my partner & I showed up (6:30pm on a Thursday), and so our "table for 2" was the last 2 places at the bar, but everyone was still being promptly served by cheerful & helpful staff. The food is tapas style and is very tasty. It compares well with some of the other excellent Mexican I've had recently in NYC and DC. I should also note that it came out very quickly. Both the bar and the kitchen are clearly well staffed. But for me the highlight was the drinks menu. If you enjoy tequila then you'll be more than satisfied with the massive selection on offer here. We went with some cocktails though, and they were amazing. Tequila has an unfortunate reputation for being cheap & nasty, but here they use it the way it should be used and the results are addictive. The place is very much a bar setup with atmosphere to match, so be warned that it's definitely not the place to come for a quiet, intimate meal.
