Fantastic evening at The Mex. food was top notch, great quality, and reasonably priced, and there was lots of it! We had the special meal menu, which allowed us to have 'a bit of everything'. Was amazing!

The atmosphere was great, friendly, relaxed but buzzing at the same time, reminded me of a cafe/bar on the continent.

Can't wait to go again!

Varied menu, food very nice and LOTS of it at reasonable prices too.
Could revisit the table to "top up" drinks quicker.

Came here with my girlfriend in december i think, maybe early january. Was very pleased, it was a last minute idea to come here. So glad we did. Food was very fresh and quick to be brought to our table.

When we arrived, there were only 2 other people in the restaurant, but it soon filled up!

Was a perfect place to eat on a cold wintery night.

The only thing my girlfriend didnt like, was her first drink, but thats only because she cant handle her alcohol ;)

GO HERE!

We went to Cornwall this Easter , S.Ives.
We went to this little place called Mex, small resturant and amazing food . If you are burrito lovers this is the one place you can't miss it . We order there set menu , however we made some changes in addition and food turn out to be extra special . Food prices are alright £15-20 per person . We been there once and love to go again n again . They gave us leftover food as takeaway too , thou we didn't want n they said why to waste . Deserts are too good too... Must go n try . Very Welcoming like a family xx

Called into the Mex, on the hop, on a Wednesday night during a three night break in St.Ives.
The food was absolutely delicious,probably one of the best Mexican meals we have ever eaten.The waitress was very pleasant and attentive without being intrusive.
The only small complaint we could have made that it was a tad too cold in the restaurant for the time of year.A little more heating would have been more comfortable.
