My husband and I ate here over the weekend and really enjoyed it. I couldn't fault the food, it was perfect. So much so, that we have already recommended it to a few friends to try out. The staff were all lovely and very attentive most of the time. The only reason I gave the service four stars instead of five was that when we asked for the bill it took a while to come out and then a further 15 mins for someone to actually take our payment. But that is me being really nitpicky. Overall it was a good experience and we will absolutely go back.
Value for money wasn’t that great, Considering the quality of the food. Waiters brought wrong drinks to us then another waiting forgot two of our drinks on our drink package so we were served two drinks at the same time after we were finished all of our food. All in all highly dissatisfied.
Great food and cocktails, and attentive and helpful staff.
As always terrific friendly service and amazing food. Can never fault my visits to Mamasita!
The service itself was a bit slower but would probably be due to the time we came in, there weren’t many food options and the menu was a bit confusing but overall they did a great job
Great place to eat and drink. You can easily stay all night and eat your way through the menu
food amazing. staff was really friendly. very accommodating. was seeing a play and play intermission finished earlier then we thought as we booked a later time and they still let us in.
Margarita’s I had were amazing!! Some of the food wasn’t for our palettes but that’s not the restaurants fault!
We had lunch at Mamasita on Saturday and it was amazing. Service and food were excellent.
Great food, great sangria, I'm very happy. I was sad when I realised the bravas potatoes weren't available at lunch and reluctantly ordered the fries which the waitress said were even better. Begrudgingly had to admit she was right. Loved it.
The food was amazing, it was so nice to go to a restaurant with an all GF menu so that my coeliac sister could actually relax enough to enjoy her food. Thanks for a great night.
We were first timers ,the staff were wonderful.We were impressed by their knowledge of the menu and ingredients .Food was so fresh ,flavours amazing .Atmosphere was buzzing -it was a pleasure to dine at your establishment
Delicious! It was quick too, which is what we needed between the Harry Potter shows.
Mexi fest. Loved it, unfortunately I took my Aunty who can't handle spice here. She did enjoy the guacamole though.
Great wait staff! Very cheery and knowledgeable. Super tasty food and good variety
¡Muchas gracias Annabelle!
Great tasting modern Mexican. Vegans catered for. Delicious 👌
The table we reserved wasn’t available and we then had to sit on a bench table which I don’t mind all too much but was disappointing to say the least. Food was amazing, but it definitely took far too long for our order to be taken considering the amount of waiters. I work in hospitality myself and even noticed that the wait for just our order to be taken was far too long. Overall, it was a nice place with good food - the service just needed to be improved on.
Hola Sarah, Thank you for your four star review we really appreciate it Glad to hear you enjoyed the food as well. We have looked into your reservation and seen that you ordered the Totopos on arrival at 7:30pm and your mains were entered into the system at 7:43pm. We can definitely appreciate that this is a long time and have taken your advice on board and will strive to improve our efficiency. We really hope to see you again soon
Food was terrible, Lighting was terrible, Atmosphere OK.....
Unfortunately we walked away both admitting we would never return.
The only good thing was the waiter who sang my partner happy birthday.
Without him the whole night would have been a shocker.
Wont recommend or return. Yucky!
I had wanted to dine at Mamasita for a long time but the long queues had put me off so I was rapt to find out I could now book and there was a table for our impromptu night out. Food was ok but did not live up to hype, high seating uncomfortable and we were rushed out. The table service was very good but won’t be hurrying back
I've been to Mamasita's three or four times in the last five years and each time I am never disappointed. Excellent food and good service.
Always love to have a meal at Mamasita's when we visit Melbourne (from Newcastle). The food never disappoints and the staff are always friendly and efficient.
Dinner started well first few dishes were great, then nothing. We followed up to ask where the rest of the meal was and was told it was coming. We waited 50mins without food and then decided to call time on it and leave. Pretty poor. Shame it was once a fantastic place. Also don’t bother about requesting a certain seating type because they don’t honor that either.
Really good food and the service was great and speedy, although it was very dark inside and it was hard to read the meuns beacuse of this. But otherwise perfect
Great food and always consistent. Have been going for years and always impressed.
Amazing food and fantastic service, staff were happy to give us an education in tequila and mezcal.
We booked a table for 10.
We were advised banquet menu for 8+ groups.
So I went on the website and opened banquet menu, and selected the $67 staff favourites which read delicious.
I received a call to confirm booking a couple days in advance and advised which banquet we wanted.
I told them the $67 one.
However when we were there after the second course in I noticed the meals were not the same as what I read and these would not of been the dishes I would of selected.
After I spoke to the lady saying we are receiving the wrong meals she was quite rude about it but told me as we were there at 3.30 we were having the lunch banquet.
I did not like this dishes at all and found this very misleading as I looked at the banquet menu and we selected the $67 menu as they were the meals we wanted.
When confirming this beforehand no one said anything about a lunch banquet nor did they correct me after I stated the one we wanted.
After I said something the service change and it didn’t put a nice end to this experience.
I have been twice before this and was looking forward to showing the rest of our group such a amazing place to eat (well what I use to think)
I was very disappointed and will not be returning on future stays in Melbourne.
Customer Service was impeccable, as we had somewhere to be, so was on a tight schedule, the food and drinks were quick and delicious. Can't wait to go back.
Wonderful service very knowledgeable waiter.
Our food was forgotten and we had a muck up with our entree they put 3 serves of the corn in one bowl and didn't advise that it was for the three of us but I would think as it was ordered with different levels of spice they would have come as separate orders.
A little disappointed we were then charged for the re order of corn?
Overall it was a lovely lunch and the waiter made our experience still a five star rating.
Service was very good and prompt. Food was tasty however would have have liked more pickle or vegetables. Would make dishes more balance especially those with plenty of protein & not much carbohydrates.
All in all a good experience
The food was outstanding, the service was bit slow.
Thanks for a great day with Mamasita and Cheek. Loved the food, and the vibe. The musicians were also a brilliant and unexpected addition to the day.
Good drinks but the food is more expensive bar food to accompany drinks.
The food was excellent! the atmosphere was buzzing and myself and my friends loved the grapefruit margarita.
Great food, service and atmosphere,
We'll be back!
The food and the atmosphere were great. Unfortunately the service was poor. We had booked a table and ordered entree and main course and thought we would order more if we wanted more. After 1 hour and having had 2 cobs of corn, the waiter said they need the table in 30 minutes. We said we haven’t had our main course yet. He said sorry the table was re-booked. At no time did they tell us there was a limit on the table. Not when we booked, when we arrived or when we placed the order. Being pushed out of the restaurant really did spoil, what could have been a good night. We won’t return.
Food was amazing.. venue could be bigger, very busy so makes it hard for staff to be attentive
Maybe i was missing something, but the food seemed really meagre, the service was messy and then the bill for 4 was nearly $400. I just didn't think any of it was worth the effort.
Overrated, slow service and uncomfortable seats.
Food was pretty awesome though to be fair
Expensive - $60 per head for tapas type stuff. But delicious & good service. They must be doing something right- it was packed & there were people waiting on a Wed night.
The waitresses were amazing and provided incredible service. The constant try for upselling was noticeable though. The quesadilla hardly had any toppings in it and was small so there was no value for money. The corn in the starter was delicious which was a win but overall I wasn’t blown away, particularly given what I had been told
