We have finally got round to going for dinner after driving past many times looking at "The Corona" sign tempting me! The welcome and service throughout the meal was very friendly, efficient and relaxed. The menu is just a delight!..... The problem I had with it was what to choose as there are so many great looking dishes on it.... More

We went to the Mexican on the spur of the moment. We had intended to eat somewhere else, but had been disappointed the night before and decided on The Mexican. We were certainly NOT disappointed with our choice! For starters we had coconut prawns and cheese stuffed jalapenos. I think the prawns are probably an acquired taste - I loved... More

Myself and my girlfriend have been going to the Mexican for years now. Every time we return to Perth the first thing we do is eat at the Mexican. Initially you are welcomed in by the lovely staff who sit you down and present you with shot glasses of margaritas and freshly cooked nachos. Then you have to make the... More

This place is truly magic! I have been eating here since the place opened and even way back in the day when in was in another location under a different name. I have never been disappointed! I have tried EVERYTHING on their menu over the years and it's all scrumptious! The staff are excellent, especially one of the owners, Katrina.... More

Staying in Perth for the weekend for Rewind, we were looking for a nice restaurant for the Friday night which was fairly close to our B&B. We hadn't spotted this place as we drove through & were actually heading elsewhere when it caught our eye. Having quickly looked at the menu we decided to see if they had a table... More

Fantastic staff, and amazing food. Not too badly priced, but you get loads of food for your money. In some instances, it might be worth sharing a dish, as we wasted a lot of very nice food, due to being so full lol. But very highly recommended. And the strawberry Margauritas are yummy.
