“Nice enough place with lots of crazy stuff on the walls.”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Not too bad. Food was nice enough, nice coffee, interior decor appropriate. Service was friendly, but a little leisurely when I went.

“Girls Night Out”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Had a great night at Mamacita. Really attentive staff and really good value wine - we chose the house white and it was very good. Food was very tasty we only had mains as we weren't starving and it was ample. Want to go back and see the downstairs bar in full action.

“Tasty and not too big”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

We miss California, so it's handy that there's a Mexican restaurant down the street from us. We go in quite a bit, and it's always pleasant. The food tastes great, even though the portions are on the small side (about half the size we're used to)… but that means we don't need a post-brunch nap. I've been with friends with kids, and it was nicely teacup-human friendly, too.

“Good Atmosphere, Poor Service, Awful Food”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

In short, fine for drink but avoid the food at all costs. Makes a Burrito from Chipotle look like a million bucks.

“Hit and miss, but probably wouldn't go back”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

You get the feeling this place won't be around for very long. The service is inconsistent (one of our waiters was excellent, another didn't appear as though they wanted to be there much) and the food is overpriced. Our guacamole was superb, but the enchiladas were a let down, appearing more like cannelloni. To have 12.5% added to the bill, rather than it be left to the customer's discretion, is also a little insulting after such a mediocre experience. The bar downstairs looks quite cool though. Ultimately, not without it's merits, but there are far better places to have Mexican food in London.
