We loved the Mexican - so much the kids chose to go back a second time! make sure you book a table or you will miss out as it's only small with mostly outside tables. Delicious fresh food and great service.

A popular place with good quality food and good service. I wouldn't say traditional Mexican food, however, it was very good. Service is also very good. Prices are slightly high.

All the food was great, delicious and fresh! The only thing was that the churros was not the typical churros you would see anywhere else. The outside was not crispy, inside was soggy and the chocolate sauce was too runny.

Absolutely awesome dinner and great hosts! Highly recommend the barramundi and pork belly tacos they were both amazing. The tequila range is well versed and the Margaritas are unique and delicious.

Staff is very friendly. Food is ok. Fajitas were partly cold when served. Meat was ok, but nothing special.

Absolutely fantastic food, a must if visiting Port Douglas. We opted to try a number of the tacos and they did not disappoint. We tried the chicken and the halloumi but kept going back to the beef which was amazing, the dips were fantastic as...More

The Mexican - Port Douglas takes a fresh, light approach to traditional Mexican dishes. You are sure to find an old favourite right alongside something you've never tried before! We have a full service bar slinging the town's best Margaritas, using 100% agave tequilas. So, whether you are stopping by for afternoon cocktail, a full dinner or an order of fresh, hot churros & coffee... The Mexican is here for you!
