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 7 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 $55 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.

    Great fun, pre theatre dinner is very quick and the corn on cob starter and churios desert were the highlight. Just enough yums to keep the tummy rumbles at bay, but would have loved maybe a bit more main meal items? But then it was winter!

    Service from the start was outstanding. We arrived early and while they were still finishing up their bottomless lunch service (we were in for dinner), they seated us for drinks, even locking us in for 30 mins while preparing for dinner service (& kept serving us drinks). It’s definitely a younger crowd vibe, with that quite loud, and food was a bit hit and miss. Lacking in seasoning & 2 chicken wings for $14 is a bit insane. We had the $50 feed me menu and didn’t leave hungry but not sure the items were worth the individual prices. Margaritas were good. Great location for pre-show meal and drink - but as I’m over 30 probably won’t rush back.

Really warm even when sitting close to the door! 10/10 would come again!!! Thanks for making our anniversary a great one ❤️

    Unfortunately our order was wrongly recorded, so we wait for food that never came. Then when we gave up waiting and asked to pay, that took an eternity. Food we did get was good, but overall a really frustrating experience.

    Came for a birthday and booked a table for 16 - the group was set out over 3 separate tables which ruined the point of a group event - everyone felt separated and awkward and I was really disappointed.

    Amazing service. Apparently there had been staff shortage, and you would not know as the manager took it upon himself to ensure our table was well looked after (a shot of tequila on the house!) given we needed to wait for the table booked. Food was incredible, and really fun vibe. The service is what stood out - super helpful and knowledgeable. Will be back!
