The staff were lovely but I left this place confused. $75 for a jug of frozen margarita with almost no tequila was an unfortunate revelation after we got the bill. Food was nice. Did the ‘feed me’ menu. Wish we left it there and left...the crappy margarita jugs (which I didn’t see on the menu pre booking) out if it. It turned a nice $150 AUD meal for 5 people with four cocktails into a $300 + one. Not on the beach with a view or anything. I’d go to Rosalita’s or La Casa over here any day of the week. Disappointed :(More

**SUMMARY** PROS: An acceptable service when quiet, nice décor, good quality food & drinks. CONS: Level of service is dependent on the individual serving you- lack of uniform high standards. We visited Motel Mexicola several times. Initially the experience was outstanding, from arrival to seating....The live mariachi band interacted with guests, performing covers of well known songs to a high standard. The cocktails are priced at approximately 140K IDR, and are well made. The food on offer is of good quality, with a particular highlight of the churros. Our subsequent visits were sadly extremely lacking in the service department. We were seated after waiting a prolonged time for two hostesses to finish their conversation in front of us before being acknowledged. Once seated we waited 20/25 minutes for someone to come take our order before eventually getting up to find a member of staff. Upon ordering we then waited double the time it had taken us previously for drinks to arrive. Whilst watching the bar staff we could see the drinks being prepared, there was no sense of urgency with staff stopping to chat, laugh and joke around before returning to making the drinks. Initially we did not mind waiting however this became a constant theme throughout the two hours we were there. We were only able to have two drinks, one guacamole & one churros because the wait was so long. Comparing this to the previous day- 7 drinks between two people and two plates or guacamole were served within 1.5 hours. Upon querying this with the staff/manager he proceeded to speak directly to certain members of staff without needing to point out where the slow points were, this provided an insight to there being an underlying issue with certain members of staff which sadly affected the reputation of the other members of staff who previously had been exceptional. We were however provided with two free shots as an apology from the management in lieu of service charge removal. Overall I would recommend this venue based on your first experience, however I would be mindful of quality of service depending on which staff are attending you.More

We came here as we were at Kudeta and it was too quiet and chilled. Ordered some food and drinks, guacamole and chips was tasty but the margaritas tasted terrible so we resorted to drinking seltzers instead. Mixed ages of crowd and everyone is dancing....Originally Latino music turned to old school RnB and rap which was wonderful except the DJ doesn’t know how to spin tunes and would play 1/4 of great songs. Was very humid inside except for the toilets. Fun night dancing with a younger crowd. The decor is a bit OTT but overall a fun placeMore

Ola! Ive heard good things about this mexican joint, turns into a bit of a rowdy party. I do love a good partee. Back in straya ive tried all of the mexican restaurants in my area and personally nothing beats the Old Del Paso stand...and stuff taco kit. This is what i imagine authentic mexican food would taste like.. In Mexico Motel mexicola proved me wrong. F me this was a treat for the culinary taste buds. My sheila loved the pork belly dish that was part of the set menu. They had these tortilla circles that you put the pork in and ate. I personally couldnt get enough of the kuru kuru lagers. May have had a few to many if you know what i mean. The tequila song came on and the next few hours were a blur of dancing to the macarena and sinking what felt like a slab of kuru kurus, but this place was pumping and would recommend to any fellow aussies and travellers. Ill never look at an Old el paso the same way againMore

Wow - this place is memorable and so much fun. Best vibe in Seminyak! Food is delicious, reasonably priced and the service was flawless on the multiple visits we made during for both lunch and dinner. The drinks are also great and table service was...10/10 on all 3 of our visits. Highly recommend for a quiet, quick and tasty lunch. Our dinner booking was 8-10pm and we were kindly reminded at 930 and 945 that we would need to wrap up our meal, which we were well aware of.More
