Great service and delicious food. Will definitely go back :)
Great event for Good Food Month. The food and drink pairing was delicious
I would love to go back to a la carte like they used too have.
We had too much food and would have been nice to have more options to choose from.
Overalll good service and lovely to be back to restaurants again.
This place has never failed to disappoint. Have been there many time over past 12 years and it is consistently brilliant.
Highly highly recommend.
Great food and great service, the cocktails are delicious
We booked in to this restaurant to dine between 2 theatre sessions at the Princess Theatre.
The Service was prompt, the ambiance was great and the Food was delicious! We had the $69 banquet and the food was delicious and serving sizes generous. We were out in plenty of time to get back to the theatre.
I would definitely recommend.
Food upto the main course was fine and so was the beef cheeks - I would not order the seafood or the desert
The service was great, most of the food was lovley, the Pork belly tacos were very spicy for my taste, but that is just me. The desert was amazing! We shared the Charred Pineapple with coconut and toasted oats. The atmosphere was really enjoyable.
Noisy, crowded,no ambiance. The waitress didn’t even attempt to say Ola and we weren’t happy to sit on a stool at a bench. We had one overpriced drink and left. We won’t be back or recommend to anyone.
Enjoyed the starters, but with only 3 options to choose from in the larger plates, we struggled to find a dish that appealed, and were disappointed with what we had. Unremarkable service. Probably won’t return.
Food was average and very expensive. Pork tacos were very chewy and flavourless. Disappointing quality all round for $170 worth of food.
Sat at the bar and the bar staff were great, excellent ambiance and food. Would highly recommend.
Excellent service, but not overly impressed about our food given the price point. Average mains, and the chips were stale. Really enjoyed our dessert.
So many flavours. So well balanced. Great selection of beverages and wonderful staff. Dietary options catered for also
Amazing food paired with great service and epic cocktails! The jalapeño margarita was amazing. Definitely will return to another great restaurant in Melbourne.
We could not agree more!
We loved dining here, the food was amazing although one does she was super hot 🔥 still tasted Amazing though, the margaritas were a plenty and beautiful too drink, I savoured every bite
Great food and experience. Set aside a couple of hours to fully experience the share style food and great cocktails.
Thank you !!!
Very loud, no social distancing, may as well have been dining with strangers.
Food was great, worth the poor environment.
Hi Anonylocal, Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate your time writing to us and have looked into everything. We are strictly following all Victorian DHHS guidelines. We are also inspected frequently. We are sorry that it may have seemed otherwise however we can assure you we constantly check in with DHHS. Thanks again.
Great food with many veg/vegan options which was a bonus. Small serving sizes but fairly priced and we were informed when we ordered we might need an extra serve of the smaller portions if we were sharing etc. Prompt and professional service.
Only down side was how close we were sitting next to other patrons on the high tables - especially given covid times.
Really lovely service! We had the kindest waitress without being too over bearing
Mamasita is always great! Delicious food in the heart of Melbourne!
Not overly impressed after reading the reviews, expectations certainly not met. Portion sizes for the price a little exuberant, minimal options for tacos and other small tapas like options considering it’s a Mexican restaurant - will stick with our local in Brunswick
Hola Tara, Thank you for your feedback we take things like this very seriously and have taken all of this on board. I have passed everything on to management. Thanks again.
Pre covid we come to Mamasita and loved loved it.
Not sure if the menu had changed, but it did not have all of the same vibes as last time and the meal was fair rather than delicious.
I hope it improves once again.
Hola Katie, Thank you for your feedback. We take things like this very seriously and have taken all of this on board. I have passed everything on to management. Thanks again.
Overpriced bland food. Tomato tostada crisp base but floury tasteless tomato. Tacos- too messy and watery. Beef- hard to pull apart, needed longer cooking time. Seafood OK, corn- very good. Desert- unusual -beaten raw egg, scant muesli base.
Hola BrianM, Thank you for your feedback we take things like this very seriously and have taken all of this on board. I have passed everything on to management. Thanks again.
Fast service great tasting food and exceptional wait staff
Thanks so much :)
delicious food but small portions and pricy. did not left there full!
Thank you SinaM !! I have passed on your feedback about the portions.
Each item we ordered was exquisite—from the tacos to the cauliflower steak, and the watermelon mojitos. Everything was made carefully, and the service was attentive without being intrusive. While the atmosphere and decor here is really inviting, it was packed to the walls, the tables are too close to squeeze between, and just as a party of 2, we had to yell to be heard. Still worth it on the nights you’re looking for a good metro dinner or fun night to kick off starters and drinks.
Hola, Thank you for your review. We have taken everything on board and I have passed on the feedback regarding your tables to management. Thanks again :)
Food and service is fantastic as usual! Definitely a go-to for a Melbourne night out!
Great food, great ambiance and great service. Alway nice to enter mamasita
The flavours were amazing, topped only by the wonderful staff who went above and beyond.
Been meaning to try Mamasitas for years. So glad I finally made it. Every dish was a taste sensation. Service was superb.
Love this place, great service & food!!
Amazing experience! Definitely excited to come visit again!
Mains were forgotten, had to wait more than an hour and a half and, when it did eventually come out, it was a bit cold and seafood was tough.
I think mamasita had developed a name for itself it struggles to keep up with. Many better other Mexican options around where you’ll be more comfortable and won’t be waiting nearly 2 hours for some chewy seafood.
Hi Chris, Thank you for your feedback. We take reviews like this very seriously and have passed everything on to the team. We would love to make this up to you. May we please have an email so that we can send you a voucher for a round of drinks on us?
We had the staff banquet menu. The food was fairly good but nothing mind blowing. Service was friendly. Unfortunately our night was ruined by the couple next to us trying to be elitist and bitter idiots attempting to ruin our night. After largely ignoring their behaviour it did ultimately spoil the night (birthday.) If that is the type of customers Mamasita's attracts I probably wouldn't return even though it's not really the businesses fault.
Love this place a long time, glad it survived Covid. Hola!
Great to return to one of my favourite restaurants after closures last year. The standard hasn't slipped. The vibe, the food and the drinks were exactly as I expected they would be. The waiting staff were smiling, efficient and looked happy to be doing what they do best.
Thanks so much Carolyn!!! See you soon :)
Hopefully it was just a bad night or something but my third time at Mamasita was quite poor. Our wines took an age to be delivered to the table, and the $16 Chardonnay was undrinkable. I returned both glasses. Two out of three dishes came out, the third had been clearly forgotten or not ordered. We ate as fast as we could so we could go - then when settling the bill, the returned drinks were still on the tab. I requested they be removed as I had returned them. All in all, Mamasita just felt like it has gone down hill. Won’t be looking to go back any time soon. Sad.
Overpriced. We paid 110 and we crossed over to get chips from McDonalds. So overpriced
Hola Daniel, Thank you for taking the time to write to us. We appreciate all feedback. We have taken a look into your booking from our backend and seen that you ordered three mains with some starters for four people - usually, we would recommend more than this over multiple courses. Next time we would love to guide you through the menu - so that you get the most out of it. We would love to have you back to show you the real Mamasita please let us know if there is anything we can do.
