Finding harmony between authenticity and originality is something that first ignited the flame at Mesa Verde back in 2013 and continues to feed it today. While it’s fairly evident that an affinity for Mexican food and agave spirits is at the helm of what we do, our city’s rank on the culinary frontier has brought with it a particular nose for experimentation.

So, since we’re very literally in the heart of Melbourne up here on the sixth floor of Curtin House, high above the city’s jugular Swanston Street, we feel it’s our responsibility to highlight what Mexican dining (and drinking) looks like in the eyes of the modern Melburnian.

$10 Margaritas 4pm - 6pm daily.

    Mesa verde is lovely. Our first time was before a concert on a Tuesday, which turned out to be specials night. The bar lends a beautiful aesthetic to the space, my margarita was good, the waiters are quick, responsive, offered to take my coat, and the food came quickly and I have to say, it was good - tasty, unusual and delicious. I’ll definitely be back.

    First time to Mesa Verde and they did not disappoint. After a minor mix up on our table numbers (which was immediately fixed up), everything was fantastic from service to food and drinks. The atmosphere was fantastic. Food was sensational (but I do love Mexican). I think the Ceviche was my favourite for flavour and tenderness of the fish. As I was driving, I only had one Sauvignon Blanc, but the Margaritas were a hit with the rest of the group. Noise level was okay (I have high pitch hearing loss). If your hearing is okay, it’s not a problem. Plus it is a bustling busy environment, so you have to expect some noise. I can’t recommend this place highly enough for a night out with friends. Next time, I’ll leave the car at home and get stuck into the margaritas and tequila!

    The entire experience was absolutely great! The food was delicious (I will come back often for the ceviche). The staff was friendly and the environment has a great vibe.

    If you love a high energy casual environment with great food and drink I highly recommend. The chefs selection menu was good and keen to try the a la carte menu on my next visit.
