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

Standard mexican grub , nothing special though. My main problem was that we were hurried throughout our meal and we were back on the street less than an hour after ordering our starters.

Excellent way to have a Mexican with the kids. Nice simple menu but very well done with lovely court yard out back to sit in the sun.

We had a lovely meal. Food lovely. Service excellent. My husband had Lamb burrito. He enjoyed it. I had sweet chicken. Although on the menu it described it as tasting chocolately/caramelly, I would say it was more like a sweet sherry/wind taste. Delicious. The main meals are large portions.

The Mexican never fails to give excellent food, good atmosphere and friendly staff. If you like Mexican food then please put this one on your list. There are dishes that are not spicy if you dont like heat and the staff will always help you. We have been going shortly after they opened their doors. That's to the staff and... More
