We don't mind paying for really good food but the food is just average. The view, decor and service likewise.

Whilst on a mini break from Cornwall we decided to go for a Mexican meal a bit later on the Saturday night. Luckily we had the last table. A nice pint with good efficient service and lovely food. Overall a first visit and good experience

Two of us visited The Mexican on New Year's Eve and had a great meal - good food, nice surrounding and fun Mexican crockery! Cocktails were good too. Everything we were looking for.
