I've eaten here a few times since moving to exmouth earlier in the year. The service is fantastic but the food is sublime! Their Burgers really are the best I've ever tasted. Can't wait to eat here again.

Pleasant garden. Would be better if fountain was working. Lovely friendly staff. Able to ensure we were served quickly with our pre theatre meal. Duck was very good. Tuna was great too.

Food was very authentic, service was great all in all a very enjoyable experience. Would recommend the mildly hot food as the experience can be ruined by very hot selections

Best vegetarian chilli for a long time, served with rice and warm tortillas, the only problem was with the size of the dish, such generous servings, I couldn't eat all of it, delicious as it was. Chris had steak served with a hot spicy sauce on the side. Ambience is great, service excellent, and a cracking selection of beers.

Being Sunday night some establishments were not serving food , so we peered in through the window to see a near empty resturant , was this saying something ? Glad we tried the place , excellent food at reasonable prices... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our night out with friends at The Mexican. I highly recommend the chilli nachos to start and either the chicken fajitas or beef enchiladas for main. Portions are big so it's great value for money and the food is delicious!!! The atmosphere was great, wish we lived closer as it would be a fantastic venue for my 40th... More

We decided to eat here last minute. I called 15 minutes before I wanted the table, and they were very accommodating. The menu is quite large, with a good variety of dishes. Obviously it is a Mexican restraunt, so the food is bound to be spicy, but maybe offering the same dish with an option for those none spice lovers,... More

Very popular locally. The food is great and service good. Probably the meals are too large, but that wouldn't be a problem for most people. Be warned--If your appetite is small, DON'T have a starter!

Ate here on Bank Holiday Monday, after booking and paying a deposit we find just 3 other tables occupied. However the staff were very friendly and not over attentive given the lack of customers. Food was very good and portions big, as the other reviews suggested. It was a very good evening with very good food, would definitely recommend and... More
