“Higher-end Mexican Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is not your typical Mexican food restaurant. The restaurant is located on N. Killingsworth and it is extremely nice. The menu features items from different regions of Mexico, and a daily special. The daily special when we went was Mahi Mahi and it, along with its sauce, was the best item we had. The food overall was very good, as was the service, albeit a little slow. Very busy on a Friday or Saturday, so reservations are recommended. If you are in the area, try it out -- you won't be disappointed.

“Cabrito !!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Tucked away in a suburb of Portland, Mextiza is contemporary and anything but stereotypical Mexican offering authentic Mexican food. Good service, opens late and a pleasant place to hang out.

I was pleasantly surprised to find Cabrito on the menu. The best Cabrito I ever experienced was in a small restaurant in Villa Mercedes, Argentina some years ago. The baby goat (Cabrito) was roasted there right in the restaurant on a spit on an open fire and I still remember the succulent juicy flavorful meat. Mextiza presented their Cabrito Monterrey style and whilst acceptable, for me it didn't match my Argentinian experience as unfortunately it was a little dry and a bit chewy . A must try though if you like meat and haven't had this before.
