Menu is decent with a number of nice-sounding dishes. The mole sauce on the enchiladas is good, though not the best I've come across. The enchiladas themselves are good, though a bit heavy on the cheese and light on the meat. Side dishes of rice...More

Great spot for dinner on the north Melbourne cafe strip. The meals are a little small but if you get a few and share them around then its no trouble. Lots of flavor packed into the taco's and quick to hit the table so you...More

I love the booths downstairs by the bar. They are so cosy and private. The air conditioner also made my lunch relaxing on a hot Melbourne day. My enchilladas were excellent and I had a great cold beer, too.

After living two years in Mexico and being married to a Mexican, this is very authentic food. Delicious and not ridiculously expensive. The service was great too. We will be regulars here!! Well done to the owners for bringing the real Mexico to Australia.

Delicious food. Very comfortable atmosphere. Lovely service. The only thing that wasn't well above average here was the price. It was surprisingly cheap. My partner and I could have filled ourselves with beautiful food for less than $50. As with any other restaurant the drinks...More
