    The menu is set out with starters, dishes to share, larger plates and desserts. We ordered a few things from each section and a drink. Within 10 minutes our drinks and entire order had been delivered to the table. There was food covering the table and there was hardly enough room to fit the plates on the table and be able to comfortably serve from each one. I remarked that it was unusual for everything to come out at once but the waitress shrugged it off. Needless to say nothing stayed hot very long and the desire for a leisurely dinner was off the cards. The food was okay but has lost its edge from when it first opened. I have been going to Mamasita for a few years but for the price and style of service I may as well go to Fonda. Won't be going back.

    Had been previously, and found the atmosphere busy and exciting. This time around, was very sedate - not what i was expecting. Food was ok, but not great, also, the food felt rushed - we got through our set menu in an hour, and were constantly getting more food arriving at our table, and didn't have enough room. Funnily enough, there was actually 1-2 courses too much. There was enough lamb for 3-4 people, and nothing to "cut through" the heaviness of it all. All in all not a bad feed, but not great either. After spending $250+ for 2 people, won't be rushing back.

    Came to celebrate niece's birthday. Food was average for that price and the chicken tacos even had a bone in it. Only one mains which was lamb. Limited food selection, maybe better just for drinks. The seating area is quite close to each other, so can imagine it is noisy when full. Was only less than 50% capacity when we went on a Tuesday. Food was so average we ordered 3/4 of the tapas selection and then decided to leave to somewhere else for dinner. No celebration of birthday there too. They knew but it was a non event with them. Waiter and waitress kept coming around to ask for orders that's all.

    We got there early, door doesn’t open till 5pm (when our reservation started). The guacamole is great and so was the mojitos. I liked the beef taco, different to what I have tried before. We enjoyed the potatoes ordered as a side.Kids weren’t fans of the pork tacos but that’s probably a personal taste choice.

    Three of us ordered the staff favourite banquet, NOT value for money. It wasn’t my first visit at this venue but was definitely last one. All the meat from the entrée to the mains was bland, no flavour in any dish. A tomato side salad dressing had more flavour than any other dish on the banquet. So disappointed. Drinks and dessert were average. Not visiting this place again.
