Mexican
A restaurant smuggled from Mexico to Melbourne. Find Little Bourke Street’s late night mezcal bar and taqueria hidden underground in the China Town precinct, and open 6 days a week until late, including lunch Friday - Sunday. Try a Tequila or Mezcal cocktail, or speak to our team about sipping some exciting Agave spirits instead. The $59 Feed Me banquet offers great value and a huge mix of traditional Mexican street food, plus some dishes with a twist. We also offer a $69 Bottomless Brunch on Friday, Saturday and Sundays, with unlimited cocktails and 5 courses of food. We are located on the corner of Little Bourke and Crossley Street, Melbourne, with a moody bar and dining area perfect for both a quiet drink, or a larger celebration.

    The food was nice but a little heavy for my liking. I prefer a Mexican that is lighter with fresh and zesty ingredients. Service, drinks, atmosphere were all great.

    Food was a bit disappointing - prawn tostadas were good however the fish and beef tacos were very average, not a lot of flavour and the consome with the beef tacos was stone cold and more like a thick dip, wouldn't call it a consome at all. Quieter up in the mezzanine area than downstairs

    The feed me menu is not as described on the website’s menu. Some food was nice others were really not appetising and hardly Mexican in my opinion.

    Was a decent bottomless brunch, super busy, wait staff were under the pump but generally were attentive when they got a chance, drinks felt a bit weak compared to other places but it was ok overall. Food was light, I found other places were a bit more generous with food portions and alcohol content. Recommended if you havent tried a bottomless brunch before, it’s a good introduction to a boozy arvo.

    Great value. Went for Friday brunch so wasn't too busy. Only suggestions would be to add a simple margarita to the bottomless brunch as that's what most people would want at a Mexican restaurant. And for the vegan menu, either get rid of the pumpkin dish or serve it first as an appetiser. Overall amazing experience though. So boozy, so filling.

    Unfortunately just not the quality of foot I was expecting for a place with such high ratings. But I had a set menu so didn’t stray or see what other options there could have been to change my mind. I was served heavy cheesy not bright, fresh or zingy flavours that I know Mexican is. Then I realised everyone just goes for the bottomless drinks and rates that.

    Went there for the pre theatre dinner. And let me tell you, it exceeded our expectations. The service was lovely by all and the food was even better. Our favourite of the night was the fish tacos, the churros and the corn. It was a lovely dinner and got us to our theatre on time. If you and your crew is wanting a lovely, yummy and yet quick dinner, go here!!

    Great food. Just a shame only 1 waitress was working so she had to manage us as a large group plus all the other patrons. Which made things slow. Not her fault but she did have her hands full

    Loved the setup for the bottomless brunch, the set menu and everyone having the same start time meant we had a our first dish within minutes of sitting down! I was initially worried that having the whole restaurant seated at the same time would mean service would be slow trying to get everyone started on drinks simultaneously, but the staff was very attentive and our waitress in particular seemed to psychically know when we needed another drink, amazing staff and the food was absolutely delicious, no duds in the whole meal.

    What a great start to our night ! The pre-show package was fantastic, we loved the intimate feel of the restaurant and the service was quick, professional and super friendly. The food was delicious and portions very generous. I could not recommend Bodega Underground highly enough.

    My friends and I attended their bottomless brunch for the first time and had the BEST experience! We couldn’t stop praising them for their amazing service. Staff were quick to offer us drinks as soon as they noticed our cups were empty. Drinks came out within 60 seconds of us asking or them offering us new ones! The food was also delicious and not excessive in serving sizes. Highlights were their birria taco and churros. There were only 4 cocktail options but each and every one was delish - I found myself going back to their mexi mimosa multiple times! Overall had a fantastic experience thanks to the attentive staff, great food and even better cocktails!
