Sadly a poor experience tonight at Mamasita . We had a voucher from our children for a special dinner. Service was erratic,food slow to come out, cold and disappointing. Tables squashed in for the tennis no doubt. Water constantly filled up but that was the highlight. Corn on the cob only winner here. Not hard to have a great meal in Melbourne .. sadly not here!
The fifth star is for the elote. Delicious food, beer and wine.
Brilliant service by Jason, great vegetarian options
Max provided great service that accompanied awesome food...we’ll be back
The menu was quite limited, cocktails fairly average and our waiter did not follow-up up.
We left and had cocktails elsewhere...
It had the potential to be a great experience but no one explained how the menu worked and we ordered wrongly. Ended up with too much of the same thing then saw the lovely meat dishes on the table next to me and wished I could order all over again. Left feeling I didn’t eat anything worth the quite big bill but thinking that if we had ordered differently it could have been great
Food was very fresh and light. Service was a bit slow, took a while to be served and for our order to be taken. However food was served very quickly.
Been wanting to go here for ages and was glad that it now takes bookings. Expectations were high so was disappointed. Overall nice but not special or outstanding
Very nice that we could book a table and food didn’t disappoint.
Mamasita have changed their menu and ambience with it.
We loved going to the mamasita prior however it seems they’ve lost there uniqueness.
Corn was warm and not enough flavour spiced on top. The chips were dumped with guacamole and salsa with an extra $2 for cheese, reminded me of something you’d get from mad mex. The authentic flavours were lost. The tostados are now rather then sharing 4 small ones were now one big one...rather hard to share. And the pork quesadilla was bland tasting with no bursting flavour.
Rather poor flavour, expensive food and grumpy service. Wouldn’t bother again. Thanks for ruining a favourite Melbourne restaurant.
Loved it, have waited a while to get there after many suggestions from family and it was worth the wait.
4 of us dined on the "Feed Me" option. It was all gluten free as 2of us are Coeliac. There was a fantastic range of taste sensations and variety of food. All served and explained promptly by a succession of wait staff but led by the lovely attentive Sabrina who was noth efficient and fun. As they did not have our choice of wine they substituted another at the same price and it was gorgeous. While it was noisy it was more atmospheric than intrusive and our 2 hour dining slot passed quickly but we never felt rushed. A great dining experience and one I would definitely recommend to friends.
So disappointed with our service ! Not sure why as normally it is on point
Enjoyed New Years Eve Banquet before the fireworks. Great location, friendly service and the food never disappoints. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys great mexican food. 😀
Amazing food and great fun vibe, exceeded expectations on all levels.
Great date night out. Amazing fresh food, great flavours and heat levels. Awesome staff- Max suggested great tequila and took the time to talk to us. Food came fast and exactly as ordered, while they had a full house. $60/head gave us plenty of food and multiple drinks. Will be back!
Good variety of Mexican food. Everyone should find something to their tastes.
My friends were both a little bit difficult for ordering drinks and food on time. They didn’t understand that we had an out by, however our Attendant and Isabella were super patient and attentive. Great food and service.
Foods are great and good customer service from Juanita! Will definitely come back again.
The food and the quality put into the meals never fails! Such a yummy and refreshing spots. The famous corn steals the show as always!!!
great foodand great service.Only gripe is a few of the dishes could have been described better or explained, but overall we shared most mealbetween 4 of us and had a ball !!!! will be back just for tecates served correctly !!!! thanks mamasita
Went here for our staff Christmas lunch and the food was amazing and just kept coming, was a massive hit for our team especially those coming from interstate. A must visit when in Melbourne
Food is delicious and staffs are nice, especially Saburina! She looks after us smily and friendly.
Vegie tacos and Crispy fried whitebait are our favorite. I will definitely come again!!
The menu and food itself didn't meet our expectations. I've been before and had a good experience but I didn't like the menu this time and found some of the items weird and bland.
Mamasita has always been on my to-do list and whilst the food did not disappoint, the service was severely lacking the night we attended. Food and beverages were slow coming out and even slower to get anyones attention to pay the bill.
Probably the best Mexican food in Melbourne. Every dish is excellent and we recommend the tasting menu for large groups.
Loud cheap and cheery I can understand why its so popular and has been for many years. Not a foodies destination per se, but well suited to a quick meal after a long day at work or a fun Saturday night downing sangria and tequilas between courses. Fish tacos were the highlight, but the cheesecake was pretty good too. Good for solo diners at the bar.
I'd heard lots of good things but was disappointed. Had the pork tacos which were a bit dry and bland, so we got a side of guacamole to liven things up. The beetroot salad was okay. They had lots of gluten free options which is good, but overall a noisy venue and the food was nothing to write home about.
Great they now take bookings here. Food was delicious and plenty of it. In fact, too much. We had checked with the waiter when ordering and he thought it was fine but turned out to be too much. So watch your order if this is your first time here.
We had stool seats looking out on to Collins Street. Nice.
Fast and attentive service.
Been here a few times previously and never had an issue. This time was terrible. The food was bland, dessert was inedible and the service was mediocre at best. Probably won’t be back after this.
Mamasitas was delicious and as someone who cannot tolerate gluten I was very happy with the confidence and knowledge of the staff. There was a large range of both vegetarian and gluten free dishes - all absolutely delicious!
Enjoyed a beautiful meal for our anniversary, we are from central coast of NSW and a work colleague recommended. Happy to say she was right. Food was delicious, service was friendly. Happy to return on our next trip to Melbourne
Great food, great service and well-worth trying out if you love mexican food. We picked our own tasting menu rather than go with the 'feed-me' option and we were happy with our choices - everything was delicious! The Burrata and Mole sauce....wow! The Lamb Ribs with Tortilla's were tasty....and the corn on cob is always a must-have to start with.
Delicious food, the swordfish collars were melt-in-the-mouth.
Good food and drinks. Our waitress was miserable. Really rude and at one point we caught her rolling her eyes at a customer.
Great food, good service, but very noisy it was hard to have a conversation. Good cocktails too!
Fantastic pre-flight meal early into their Thursday evening service, dishes served promptly and with a smile. Each dish with enough kick (and extra sauces available), and packed full of flavor and texture. Tasting flight of tequilas exactly as described. Out full and happy. Would return.
Delighted that Mamasita were able to accommodate a booking on the day we were looking to dine. Appreciate the flexibility and room for last minute social occasions. One of the most extensive list of mocktails I've seen in a Melbourne restaurant, my ginger one was fantastic and not too sugary as is often the case for those laying off the booze for an evening. Lamb quesadilla was a stand out and could have ordered three more rounds, needed to restrain ourselves. Although the squash/eggplant taco was quite average in comparison.
Staff were really friendly and gave an excellent service
The food was good as always, but despite having a booking and it being Sunday night, we were hussled out after only an hour and a half with no option to order dessert or more drinks. The server said they had another booking. We won’t be going back.
