We ended up at the Mexican after another place had decided to close early, I'm glad that was the case. The value for money here is really good, you get a lot of food for what you pay for. The food is really tasty and the service was lovely. Everything was brought out fairly quickly and well presented. I would... More

I read the reviews and decided to come along and give this place a try. My husband wasn't so keen on the idea as we had a bad meal at another (now closed) Mexican place in Perth. We ordered the fajitas one with just the steak and the other with steak and prawns. The towers delivered to the table were... More

I have been here about 4/5 time and every time it's been amazing, I'd go as far as saying this is probably my favourite restaurant in Perth, can't wait to go again.

We had a table for 4 booked on a sat night - restaurant was busy but service was still prompt and everyone was really welcoming and helpful. Food portions were huge and meals arrived hot and very tasty. Complimentary cocktail shots and tortilla's are a really nice touch! Will def be back and will recommend to friends

Having eaten at a few good Mexican restaurants I was somewhat disappointed with the offering from The Mexican. There are only a few vegetarian options on the menu and I ordered potato skins to start which were basically just sliced and fried potatoes covered in cheese and served with sour cream, not quite what I was expecting! The veggie enchiladas... More

We were in Perth for the day and decided to stay for dinner so decided to try this restaurant after looking on Trip Advisor, my boyfriend loves Mexican food therefore he was really looking forward to eating here. We turned up and asked if there was a table available (the restaurant was empty), after a second the waitress came back... More

We are full every Saturday as are all the good restaurants in perth, we keep a table by the door for chance customers, its not a great table but serves a purpose. you were having a bad day and lost the plot, looks like you didn't find a table anywhere :( More

Had my 19th birthday meal here. My friends were late but the staff were very helpful and patient. Great friendly service. I felt very welcomed. Easy too book. Wish it was open more than it is. A healthy big portion - definitely get more than you paid for. I would definitely recommend this for any occasion.

We have eaten here on many occasions and it never disappoints. This time we both had fajitas - one chicken and the other steak. I requested that the steak be served 'quite pink' and when it arrived sizzling on the platter it was cooked to perfection. Well done The Mexican for another fabulous meal. Back soon!
