Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had walked by many times wondering what it was like! Went for dinner in April to find out Service was excellent and food superb; will definitely go back. They should consider allowing Blue Light card discount as a number of other local restaurants do

My brother-in-law and his wife recently visited this restaurant and thoroughly recommended it. So, last Wednesday, I ordered a takeaway online for 2. We had the brochetta and the spicy prawn fajitas. The dishes came with salad, soft tortillas and sauces. The food was freshly...prepared and came in a very decent sized portion. Everything tasted really good, was reasonably priced and the service was excellent. I have no doubt that we will be back both for takeout and eat-in in the near future. We’ve lived in Exmouth for 10 years and have often thought about “the Mexican place”, but never got around to trying it. I’m glad we’ve put that situation right.More

Our meal with the family at The Mexican in Exmouth was really lovely. The food is very tasty, served promptly. It was really busy and to get food out like that on a Friday night was impressive. My Margarita cocktail was just what I needed...and perfectly done! My spicy prawn starter was great even though there were only 4 prawns. Enough for one each! We shared nachos too for a starter and there was a lot! Can't win hey. The lady when asked for the bill was a little rude and aggressively stacked the plates but I didn't care as my cocktail made up for it and I laughed it off. I'd be like that on a Friday night too. Very fast though and I gave a good tip.More

Went for valentines night, booked a table for 7.00pm Food good, but felt it was just another evening out, nothing to celebrate valentines, felt rushed through the whole meal, staff dress code very poor, after asking for bill, had a waitress watching over us with...new cutlery waiting to relay table while there was plenty of empty tables, so not to say that they were waiting for our table, will not be returning.More

Another excellent meal at The Mexican. Although we are not huge fans of very spicy foods we have always found the food here very tasty and just enough spicyness to tickle our tastebuds! This visit we had a lamb burritos which was full of tender...tasty lamb, and the special tuna in white wine and peppercorn sauce. Service was very prompt and friendly. The restaurant is quite large and spacious and at this time of year quite empty - only 14 covers whist we were there. Didn’t put us off at all and we will always pay a visit when in Exmouth.More

Wanting to enjoy a family celebration, we decided to try something new and settled on visiting The Mexican in Exmouth. Our first taste of Mexican cuisine, and pleased to say that everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. The restaurant was surprisingly large, service was spot-on and...the food well presented and very tasty. Will definitely be dining out there in future.More

This is clearly a much loved and popular restaurant. We were really excited to go as we are big Mexican food fans. The service was excellent and the atmosphere is nice. The food was ok. It felt like an English persons idea of what Mexican...food is. The favours just weren't there.More

Bit stuck for our first choices ( having not booked ) but were found a table here. Nice enough menu but we probably picked the wrong dishes. Burritos were under cooked - to the point of cold - and pretty tasteless. Service was sharp and...everyone seemed happy enough - both staff and customers. Well priced and drinks not excessiveMore
