I live locally, my partner & I have eaten here quite a few times in the past. We hadn't been for ages due to a bad experience with some beef fajitas! But last night we decided to give it another go! We went in at 7, it was dead so we got a table straight away! Orders taken promptly, food... More

If you enjoy proper Mexican food with great portion size at a good price then I'd recommend this everytime. I have been here many times and never disappointed! Lovely family run business which always makes you feel so welcome! Simple yet delicious menu and great for young children and adults of all ages! Arguably one of the best places to... More

Had a family get together here and had an enjoyable meal. Service was efficient but on occasion a little too efficient as plates were tried to be cleared before we had finished at one point. Large portions and nice touch from the waiter who suggested we could take away the rest of my chicken kebab and promptly wrapped it in... More

An impressive eatery. V large portion sizes. And all mains were very tasty. Service was good- if quite prompt in wishing dishes away. Slightly disappointed that no Mexican rice was on the menu. Offered to wrap up all left food in tin foil. Very nice to have this suggested instead of having to ask.

Fairly new to the area, my family and I tried The Mexican to get a feel for the place and were impressed. Very good value wine and generous portions meant we were absolutely stuffed! The service was almost too quick and did at times make us feel slightly rushed but overall I'd recommend.

Amazing food. Totally worth the money. I would eat there every night if I could. We even rented the place for our lunch time wedding meal and my partners 30th birthday evening meal. Fantastic.

Another super evening at this popular restaurant. Something for everyone, including children. Great atmosphere. Recommend for big parties. Service excellent. Good sized portions beautifully cooked. Sensible prices too. Love the enchiladas and Mexican sweet chicken. Changing Specials board too! Highly recommend a visit.

This is a Mexican themed restaurant in the centre of Exmouth. Brightly decorated and spacious it also has a courtyard. The food is mostly fusion type food with a cheaper and basic menu at lunch time. Said to have been established since 2001 it seems to have undergone a facelift recently. One of the better restaurants in Exmouth.

I haven't eaten in the Mexican for about a year now (not due to a bad experience but lack of time!) but after receiving vouchers for my birthday my partner and I thought we'd give it a go and I have to say....WOW! I had the swordfish steak which was on specials and it melted in the mouth! Absolutely cooked... More
