A few reasons for my poor review: 1. Lady who served me was so bloody rude; 2. Lady and man 'chucked' everything in the nacho bowl, not giving a crap; 3. Guac is an extra $2 (seriously, its bloody nachos, it should be part of it!); 4. I had a hair im my nachos (def wasn't mine!) 4. I've been... More

I wouldn't call it authentic, but it technically is Mexican food. Not bad if you are starved and craving a nachos fix.

Great view... and great food, too. After three trips to Mexico, we no longer cross-the-border, but we do miss the food. Mad Mex may not be completely authentic, but they offer great food, in a pleasant locale... and at reasonable prices. We enjoyed our quesadillas.. hers a spicy vegetarian... and mine an equally tasty beef. As others note, there's good... More

We being a family of vegetarian, & with kid who likes everything non veg, it's tough to find a good place. But this really hit the spot and all had a great time. Churros is awesome.

I personally love Mexican food because of the spices. This place has such a good spice in the food. I order spicy salsa, I got it. I order grilled chicken, I could smell the smoke from it. Brown rice cooked perfectly. I ask for extra Jalapeno, they gave me a lot of those. Overall, this place is the best!

Had a chick or chipotle burrito and also a naked burrito with all the salads, guacamole etc. it is freshly made and you can choose what you require and I can't say it was bad. You have the options of sizes as well and the price was reasonable.

Better than competitors, both nachos and burrito were large and tasting very good. Price is decent and we have got the specials.

Had a quick lunch here 7th Jan, outdoor dining overlooking the jetties and swimming beach. Lots to choose from, I enjoyed the three soft beef tacos as a meal...just right. If you like Mexican food, this restaurant is fine.
