Absolutely delicious!!! Staff were awesome and a fantastic place for a relaxed meal and a few cocktails with a group or a date night. We will be back again and again.
Great vibe! Will probably return with some mates and have a feast
We're so thrilled we chose to take our out of town friends to Mexicano. I can't believe how much effort they made to accommodate our party of 6. Regular phone calls from Josie who did everything she could to fit us in. The food was amazing - great sized portions and super tasty. The trouble was that the margaritas were dangerous - too delicious and very moreish. Hence, when paying the bill I accidentally left an extra $50.00 note, but didn't notice. How do I know this? Well would you believe that one of the extremely professional and friendly waitresses ran out to us, stopped us in the street and gave us back the $50.00. I wish I was richer as I'd have loved to say "hey keep it"... when I win the lottery I'll be back to leave a huge tip! It was a wonderful ending to a really fun fantastic night. Thanks Mexicano.
We have been to Mexicano many times but we haven't been for a while until our recent visit on Friday, 4th October.
This was a special family night where we were able to get our 2 teenage kids to come out with us which is rare. My son loves Mexicano so he chose the venue.
Unfortunately, we found the food was not as good as usual. My son's favourite dishes are the nachos, fries and chimichangas. He is very fussy with food and he would normally order all three of these dishes as he doesn't like anything else. Sadly, we were told you don't do nachos or fries anymore so he only had the chimichangas. The chimichangas were very oily and heavy and he couldn't eat much. I tried one and put half back and even my husband thought the same whereas, he'd normally polish them all off.
My daughter is vegetarian and enjoyed the corn but then ordered the vegetarian tacos. They were soggy and cold. The tacos were a dark brown colour and a weird texture and she couldn't understand why her taco shells were not like ours. She couldn't even pick them up. We thought maybe they were gluten free? She said I am just vegetarian not gluten free or vegan. She was still hungry as she didn't eat much.
Mexicano is the only place where I will order a frozen margarita but mine missed the mark this time as it was very lemony.
Otherwise, the rest of the food was fine and the service was good. I have ticked 'yes' to recommend Mexicano to a friend because we know you are normally better than this and it is a cool venue.
It will be a while before our kids will be convinced to come back and my husband and I feel the same.
Best Margaritas in town! Always an enjoyable night
Really great place for great Mexican food, simply cannot fault our experience here. HIGHLY recommended
Awesome food, great night there with the Mrs last Saturday, good Margaritas too!
Love the menu selection and cocktails but I do think it’s ocerpriced compared to most other Mexican restaurants. Also they desperately need some sound proofing in there!
I just feel it way way way over priced for not much...
we did have a nice time though..
Great night amazing food. Was busy and forgot a few drinks orders but came quick when reminded.
Love it every time
Terrible service, forgot to place our order for 30 mins
But great food and taco deal
We had a lovely evening - the food, the vibe, the service...all fab!
The best quesadillas ! Very cosy, friendly, easy dining.
Amazing as always!!! Have never had a bad experience !
Some of the dishes were great. E.g corn, wings. But the beef and pork tacos looked and tasted burnt. Even though booked, we were seated on the bar and on uncomfortable high stools.
I am definitely a tad disappointed overall as every time I do come to Mexicano the food and service is amazing, however this time it was below average.
The food wasn’t exceptional like it always has been, the churos were tasteless and eggy (when asked about them and this was relayed) we were told well that’s how they are meant to be, it’s traditional and that’s that.
The service was average.
Bitterly disappointed overall.
It’s a shame that some of the dishes that have been so popular in the past and what I came for, were not available and was informed that there will be a menu change... is this the right thing to do? Will have to wait and see!
The staff are INCREDIBLE. And the food isn’t bad ;)
Another great night at Mexicano. Always spot on! Thanks guys x
Great food and great service, enjoy every meal at mexicano!
Best Mexican food on the Northen Beaches... if nit in Sydney... Fish Taco's are sublime.
A very upscale/fancy type of Mexican. The cocktails were fantastic! Would highly recommend one of these to start off your meal. We ordered some of the corn (very nice-but you will need 1 serve per person). We then had 6 plates of tacos (they come with 3 per plate). The beef, fish and vegetarian were my fave- but pork and chicken are also delicious. The tacos are quite filling. Next time would like to order some of the other dishes as well! We spent about 35-40$ pp. and all got a drink.
Everything was very positive about our night - food excellent, great service and ambiance. The only negative that would be a simple fix for Mexicano was that the seats outside were backless and uncomfortable and the table was wobbly so you couldn’t lean on it or drinks would get spilled.
We will definitely be back though! Yum!
Great food and very attentive service. I was hoping for a few more authentic Mexican options, having just come back from a trip to Mexico, but the menu was a lot more authentic than most Mexican restaurants in Sydney.
The noise was a little loud - it was busy - and the large table made it hard to hear each other sitting opposite each other.
Otherwise a very enjoyable experience and would recommend it to friends!
Amazing food, amazing value. And booking through Open Table couldn’t have been easier.
Eye contact with the staff equals someone coming to ask you would you like something else.
Really enjoyed the food and the Bottle of Spanish Rose went very well with the food. Service was good.
Our server was awesome! Food was yummy. Kitchen noise was very loud.
Great food! The restaurant was very noisy even though we were sitting outside. We could barely engage in conversation. Quite expensive for example a half piece of corn is $6. It’s amazing but that price is pretty ridiculous
Great fun, great food & margaritas, but SOOOOOO noisy!!!
What a superb way to enjoy a birthday with my immediate family. Staff are fantastic, a great variety of food on offer. Highly recommended, have been before and will go again.
My husband and I were disappointed to be told that this local restaurant was not BYO. We were further disappointed to be told after purchasing a bottle of wine that if we didn't finish it, we wouldn't be allowed to take the remainder home. Further insult to injury - when offered water, which we replied 'just tap water', a fee of $2.00 was placed on the bill - we didn't even want water, at other restaurants it is a complimentary courtesy! Also serving sizes - there was three of everything - I didn't appreciate the 'upselling to four pieces' for every menu item we selected. I didn't see many 3 seated tables, so I can only imagine serving sizes of three is an upselling tactic.
Disappointed! won't go again!
Nice place by the beach
Love this place! The fish tacos and pork belly tacos are to die for...absolutely delicious!
Always great. Great vibe great service great food!
Not many traditional Mexican dishes - fajitas, Nachos, etc.
The seared steak with chips and Peanuts (why peanuts) was terrible.
Best ever margaritas, ceviche and fish tacos! Awesome, friendly service. Love Mexicano.
Great food, quick service, friendly staff. Always consistent.
Loved the coconut margeritas
Yum yum great food and the jalipino margaritas are the bomb
The food is the highlight... it is so yum. The highlights were the corn and the fish taco's. The restaurant has lots of atmosphere and the staff were friendly and efficient. Some people may love a loud environment but we found it difficult to hear each other when we were seated inside. We were fortunate there was an outside table so we moved.
