Latin / Spanish
La Onda Latin Mex restaurant is an authentic Latin Mex venue serving flavours that draw from the vastness of Latin American and Mexican cuisine.
Located in the heart of Dromana, our venue sits across from the beach where the sounds of Latin American music blend with the rhythm of the ocean waves to create a unique dining experience in the Mornington Peninsula.
Let us inspire you with the love we all share for authentic cuisine straight from the heart of our history.
Our restaurant offers a-la-carte menu and the dishes are created with fresh produce and techniques from our talented kitchen team lead by Chef Roxy Flores. Our signature dish is the Fish taco, beef burritos and layered Nachos and don't forget our Margaritas and Mexican beers to get the fiesta started!

    Staff are fantastic and enthusiastic and absolutely delicious food with prompt service. My only complaint is that we were outside at tables with umbrellas, but the tables are extremely close so that we had to squeeze into our seats as another couple were at tables behind us leaving no room to move in or out.

    La Onda always delivers fresh and tasty meals. My only slight complaint is the corn should be cut into halves as a whole corn was difficult to share. Otherwise very enjoyable and will be back soon.

    If you are looking for somewhere delicious, fun and welcoming this is the place for you. Every time we go we are welcomed with open arms by the head chef and owner Mumma Roxy. Her love of cooking is evident and you can taste it in all of the food. She knows flavours and she gets it right every time!

    Service was really bad. I booked for a booth but instead she asked us to sit on a high chair which is very uncomfortable. The waitress was rude and unprofessional. We drove 2 hours just to eat there and ended up having nothing.

    La Onda Latin MexResponded on June 15, 2022Thanks for your feedback. We're service focused our staff go above and beyond in providing the best, we will do better. Our restaurant is small with only 4 tables, we reserve them for bookings of 3+ and recommend that bookings of 2 sit at the bar (after 6pm). We acknowledge that the bar is not for everyone but we have designed it with comfort in mind, the woven high chairs have back rest, wide seat and foot rest, we've included bag hooks. I hope that you give us a second chance soon.

    Shared nachos, calamari salad, pork ribs and potatoes with chorizo between four people. The food was absolutely delicious. The pork ribs was juicy and so tender the meat just fell off the bone. Best sangria I have ever tasted. We finished up with churros topped with ice cream and drizzled with chocolate. Just the best. Highly recommend this family owned restaurant down on the Peninsula.
