I went here for my birthday dinner with my son and daughter in law. We were greeted by the hostess from hell. Is she the owner, his wife or his daughter I wonder. Because if she were an employee she would be sacked. I don't think her face cracked from the grimace whilst she was talking to us and she... More

My friends and I visited the Mexican on holiday and the food was very average. My wife had the chilli and this was very basic and the rest of the meal just didn't hit the required standard. On the positive side I would like to add that the staff who looked after us were exceptionally good but were let down... More

Enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. Haven't been for a couple of years and was concerned that it would have changed. But no, it was still the same. The food is very good and there is always a very happy atmosphere in there. This is obviously a very popular restaurant as it always seems to be full. Can recommend it... More

Visited for a friends birthday on a saturday night in May. Chose the Mexican as it is one of few places in exmouth that is nice to eat and a reasonable price. Had calamari to start which was delicious and then enchilada for mains which was ok but didn't have much meat in it. My friend had mussels as a... More

15 of us ate here this week for my birthday and we had a fantastic night. From the first call to book, through to paying the bill, the Mexican handled everything professionally and in a really friendly manner. Our waitress was excellent and the food/cocktails delicious. Apologies to other diners reading this trying to have a romantic meal that night,... More
