“Fantastic food and value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

I have never been a fan of Mexican food but maybe I was never sure what to order. The staff were very helpful and the food was fantastic. Great atmosphere. Entrée, main, wine and beer for 2 under $50. A must for all. Tostaditas great, pork, pineapple, red cabbage tacos so tasty.

“Quick, fresh and delicious!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

We love Mexican and this quirky casual little restaurant hit the top of our list for being authentic. We tried the tacos, quesadillas, and cornchips with salsa and guocamole - all delicious and freshly made. Love they had all the true Mexican hot sauces - no supermarket mexican here.

“Sad Mexican”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

We visited on our honeymoon but the service was quite poor and there was a bug in my food.... It seemed to be the plcae for younger folk who like a drink.

“Must try the Tostaditas!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

A really cosy little restaurant. The staff are great and really friendly. We had the chorizo and mushroom tostaditas entree which are to die for. I would have been happy if they served it in a larger portion for a main. My partner had the chorizo and bacon quesadilla which was really yummy and I had the chicken burrito. It was really filling and probably one of the healthiest I've tasted owing to the quinoa. Unlike other burritos I've had, it wasn't saturated in sauce. The food was really fresh and very enjoyable.

“Delicious, fresh and great service! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

We enjoyed everything about our experience at Mexican Republic! The corn to start was fantastic, and our burritos were delicious, too. We had a mojito and a margarita, which were both fresh and delicious, albeit a little strong. The only thing we thought was a little strange was that, in a seaside town, there was no seafood on the menu. Service was also fantastic, and it's a great addition to Lorne, as there are not many great restaurants in this town. Would definitely recommend this place!
