“Decent meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Good meal with eccentric service from the owner / manager. Very friendly and a decent value meal for a family of four. A really pleasant experience.

“Always busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Very busy and popular with all ages. Fajitas are our favourite. Zac is very friendly and it's always good to go when he is around (which is most of the time!) but his staff are good too. Sadly it gets too busy in the summer months due to it's popularity and the amount of people in the port so we prefer it when it's slightly out of season.

“Cozy restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

A nice restaurant with friendly service. The pirces are ok, and the food is typical mexican food.

The place caters primarily to younger people, with loudmouthed waiters with quickwitted humor. Fun for the young ones, maybe a bit more on the annoying side for older persons. But the staff is very friendly

Just back from holiday and enjoyed several great evenings in this fun restaurant. As well as a great atmosphere, the food was FAB!! If we are back in the area, we'll definitely call again.

“Just Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

The Mexican has a really friendly and fun environment. The owner and his staff are just fantastic. Lots of fun. Service is great even when busy. Obviously a restaurant is all about its food and The Mexican does not disappoint. Food is top quality and plentiful. Heading there for a third visit tonight. Thanks for making us so welcome guys.
