“Average Dempsey Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

we arrived there well after the lunch hour , around 330-4PM , the staff seemed to be having a briefing . the good thing is someone came over and offered us a table and advised us that the kitchen was open . later we were advised that there was were certain items not available due to the time.

the food was very average, would not be rushing back in there soon considering the variety of places in the Dempsey area.

“Really "user friendly" mexican food...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Been to a number of Mexican restaurants around the world and this certainly is in my top 5 for a number of reasons. The food portions are huge, so watch out! The menu is what you would expect in a classic Mexican restaurant. The service is good and friendly. This place is kid friendly so gets an additional point from me...You have seating outside if you want to experience the humidity of Singapore with some spicy food. The area is buzzing and overall a good experience and worth visiting.

“Used to be good, recently very patchy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We love Mexican food, and have for long been returning customers at Margarita's. The food is good and the service friendly. The ambience is nice and it is always packed on weekends. We love the nachos, quesadillas, burritos, fajitas and the frozen margaritas. However the last two visits have been a letdown.

On one visit our party of 5 was shown to a small table with four chairs despite holding an advance reservation. We were then made to wait for half an hour for a table for five. We werent offered even a bowl of chips during our wait.

On our last visit we ordered our favourite chicken burrito. After placing the order the person serving us told us that they wouldn't be serving the salad which normally accompanies it as they had run out of salad. She went on to explain that the restaurant was closing the next day for a week of renovation and had therefore not ordered supplies and had run out!! They replaced the fresh salad with potato wedges... from a packet.

When the burritos came, we realised that even the chicken filling wasn't the normal one. They had filled the burritos with the chicken from their fajita dish. It didn't taste good, and we all struggled to finish what was on our plate. Not Cool at all Margarita's !!

“Best Fine Dine Resto in Singapore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Delicious cuisines, romantic ambiance and superb service is what make this restaurant one of my top choice in Singapore. Sitting in pristine surroundings of Dempsey Hills, Margaritas's offers to wide selection of margaritas with expanded food menu (even for a vegetarian like me). Do try house-special margaritas and Nachos to begin with.
Reserve a table in advance to avoid disappointment if you happen to visit on weekend!

“Great Margarita,s”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Great location, friendly staff and truly delicious Mexican food. Found it a bit strange that it emptied at around 1030 pm on a Saturday night but I guess people moved on to other places. Highly recommended.
