Description: Motel Mexicola supplies you with authentic mexican cuisine not unlike that cooked in restaurants, served on street corners and in homes in Mexico. Our two mexican chefs we have working in our kitchen is a testament to that. Specialising in Mexican Tapas our menu is designed for you to share. Ask our staff to order for you so you can experience the menu the way it is meant to be ordered and take a journey with us through the different flavours of Mexico. Be warned though, if its tex-mex you are after this is not what we do. We do fresh, fun interactive food that will make you want to come back for more. We guarantee you will love it!!

“Fun food and drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

This restaurant is typically themed in Mexican style. From the moment you arrive the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. We shared five entrees a pinot grigio and a Corona and it only cost 47kRp ($aud49). Great value. The food was ample, in fact I was very full, no Maccas on the way home here. This was our second visit to the restaurant and we will be back.

“Fun atmosphere, affordable food..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Funky restaurant with cheap but ever so yummy/delicious food. With 2 drinks each and the sampler menu it came to under $80. The service was exceptional and attentive..

“The worst Margaritas ever”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

The place looks nice and quite authentic mexican street foody. The food was ok but the margaritas were so awful that I would never come back - a huge disappointment.

“Tapas Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

Good looking setting very cool, loved the share tables, great way to meet new people. Staff are friendly, the owner comes around and greets all the guests. Food is great, bit like tapas Mexican. Large variety of food and drink. Very tasty. Mixture of young couples and families.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Interior design is pretty, service staff was nice but the food is not really Mexican, it was bland and not the usual Mexican spices/tastes one would expect. Portions are tiny. It is probably good if you are a bunch of friends looking for some party ambiance and some drinks...dont bother eating there, you will be hungry afterwards.
