Description: We use as much as possible organic fruit and vegetables and wash them in purified water. Ice cubes are made of mineral water and we fry our gluten free Tacos and Corn Chips several times daily in cholesterol free Coconut Oil ! Enjoy your dinner ( we also have Vegetarian options) with great cocktails and sub-zero cooled beers served in a ice-bucket, in our unique and amazing Mexican cactus garden. Unlike many other restaurants, most of our food ingredients are imported from Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the United States and therefore subject to high import taxes and transportation costs. But we are still able to prepare large, delicious meals for a very moderate price. Our team hopes to welcome you soon in " LA MEXICANA " all week from 4pm-10pm.

“Not traditional Mexican, but the food is good”
Reviewed 3 December 2013 via mobile

Food was really good and the value is also very good. The location is the hard part, when you look at the map it's on Jalan raya canggu about half way between Jalan raya padanan and Jalan raya kerobokan. Just hang a left if coming up kerobokan from seminyak. Nachos are great, salads have great dressing and the big combo platter is awesome. The setting is half outdoor half indoor clean and inviting. The service was very friendly and would recommend to anyone. If you want Mexican in Asia, this is a good spot.

“Real Tex-Mex!! Delicious Food and amazing service!”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

After a day trip to Tanah Lot, I was driving back to Seminyak and happened to see the sign for La Mexicana. Being from Texas, I've been having mexican food withdrawals for quite a while so I decided to pull into this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised! The menu is a true Tex-Mex menu that offers everything from nachos to tacos, and even enchiladas which can be difficult to find here in Bali. The food is absolutely amazing, well prepared, nicely seasoned, and delivered in a nice presentation. The margaritas are delicious and are not ruined by too much sweet and sour mix like most margaritas in Mexican restaurants. The restaurant has a true Mexican Cantina atmosphere and the owners are extremely warm and friendly, and have taught their staff how to provide excellent customer service. I would definitely recommend La Mexican to anyone who is a fan a good, authentic Tex Mex fan or who may be trying Mexican food for the first time!!!!!
