4 of us order different meals. They all tasted and looked the same. Tasteless and bland. No spice, no flavour. Won't be returning.

Our family visited Supermex on Wednesday night. The restaurant has a lovely feel. The staff were friendly and attentive. The stuffed jalepenos were DIVINE. This was something new to us. Jalepenos stuffed with cream cheese, coated with a delicous batter and a sour cream sauce. They were truly delicious. My mouth is watering just thinking about them. YUMMMMM. All the meals were a generous size and everyone loved them. The most delicious homemade mexican sauces from a sweet chilli to mind blowing, eyewatering hot. Highly recommended.

We went here on a Friday night for my brother's birthday and there was approximately 20 of us. When we arrived we were put in an area outside that was long and quite narrow with enough room to shuffle side ways to get to your chair. Also because the area was enclosed, it was very noisy and hard to hear yourself think!!! No ability to move around and mingle with other guests. The electric heaters were on and plastic shades pulled down which made the area very very hot and stuffy!!!

First thing was first and we had the heaters turned off and asked for the shades to be opened. The shades were opened about half way through our meal!!! Nothing like prompt service!!!!

Unfortunately, I think the staff must have been new as they were not experienced, not able to answer questions and became quite flustered with the number of people. The orders were taken in a sensible manner by going around the table in a clockwise direction which I thought was very smart because they would bring the meals out in the same order and it would be easy to know who ordered what!!! But NO!!! That was not their intention, so for about 45 minutes they walked up and down the table trying to figure out who ordered what, bought out wrong meals and forgot all the condiments...... chicken tasted like it was a little old and the steak for the frajitas was tuff and chewy..... advertisement was BYO but they took away all the beer that people had and charged $5 corkage per person for wine /champagne.

All in all, not a pleasant experience and was very disappointed.... Would someone please open a decent and affordable Mexican restaurant on the Coast!!!!!

Last weekend was my 2nd visit to Supermex! We come to Terrigal every year for Easter and since the new ownership has taken over, i had noticed a few differences! The restaurants interior had changed! Filled with Bright colorful new additions, it was a nice change from the old restaurant! Not to mention the cool different Mexican ornaments hanging around the place! It was awesome experience for my kids also with a big screen T.V playing Mexican cartoons! and Mexican coloring in stencil too! The service throughout the night was brilliant, the staff were Absolutely lovely and very well spoken! The drinks were quick to the table! As was the food! Beautifully presented, myself and my husband shared the Fajitas for two! so much flavor and very filling! and the kids had a kids Beef nachos and a kids Chicken Quesadilla, both very satisfied with the taste at the end of there meal! they were also giving free Ice-cream to top it off! so Very Happy kids and Very happy Parents! Thank you Supermex for the all-round good time!
