The Jungle Mexican Cantina was a very pleasant surprise! Being coeliac, it can be difficult to dine out. Not at The Jungle! I stopped in during the day to check what I could eat and was told about 3/4 of the menu is coeliac friendly! Yay! And the food was amazing! Generous portions and friendly service with a relaxed atmosphere.... More

We've visited this restaurant quite a number of times, and never a bad meal or service. Craig and his team are friendly and the food is great. Well recommended.

We have been coming here for many years as a family and always come here on our first night in Coolangatta. The quality of the food is just excellent. Large portions so don't order too much! Our favourite restaurant in Coolangatta and one of the best Mexicans we've been to anywhere,

We love this restaurant.... It is in a great location across the road from the beach in Coolangatta. The service is friendly, the food delicious and the added bonus of BYO beer & wine. It makes for a cheap fun night out. We came here on New Year's Eve and although it was very busy we still had great food... More

We stumbled upon this place on a very busy night but snagged a table for 8. From the moment we were seated, the service was exceptional. When we walked back from the bottle shop with a bottle of Sangria they were ready with wine glasses full of ice, and when our autistic son had a meltdown they were on hand... More

Came to visit a couple of friends and they suggested The Jungle. I was absolutely impressed by the impeccable service from all the staff. The wait for the food was not long at all & it tasted amazing. Would definitely come back when I visit Cooly again. Thank you.

Saturday night, group of 11. All tables outside, comfortable.Service was prompt and friendly. Although we took a while to order, food came reasonably quickly. I ordered combination #11 (can't remember the name - chicken taco and beef tostada I think), both were good and this was *not* a baked on plate dish like most of the others. Partner had a... More

The food is both very nice and very plentiful. They are very accommodating for both vegans and vegetarians. Staff are extremely friendly and down to earth. We took the waiter's advice for both our meals and he was spot on.
