We love Mamasita. The food is always amazing and the staff are wonderful
The food here is always fantastic. Could not fault the amazing service. Loved it!
Great food, great drinks, great atmosphere... not much more i can say :)
Fantastic food and excellent service. Great vegetarian options for myself and my wife.
Extremely tasty food, service was quick, waitor was really friendly and knowledgeable about drink choices. Had an awesome time!
Our first Mamsita experience did not disappoint. The food was delicious, the drinks amazing and the service was relaxed but prompt. A lovely way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon.
The food was lovely, the service was amazing and we simply have an excellent girls day out lunching with cocktails.
Some of the most amazing food I’ve ever had! Would definitely recommend
Customer service and vibe wasn’t great.
The restaurant web site advertised a down to earth, authentic Mexican experience but nothing could be further from the truth. I lived in Arizona on the Mexican border for seven years and had never seen this kind of food before. In fairness some of it was tasty, but better described as Mexican inspired fusion. On top of that I found the food over priced, and the music (acid jazz) way too loud.
Drinks were great. I had not been in years, but had always recommend it. However, this time the food was generally boring, and the waiter seemed to be annoyed at waiting on us. I asked which of two dishes is more popular or what he would suggest, and he just said it's up to you. Like I was wasting his time. He seemed to give the tables next to me his time and enthusiasm. They also cleaned up our table and gave us dessert menus, then our last meal came. Although we had forgotten about it too.
I still love the corn and the drinks, but the other food wasn't as good as I remember, and the waiter really made me feel unwelcome.
Had high expectations. The service at staff were great. The food was just ok. The person I went with told me menu has changed as was not as good as previous. Will give it another try. But not too soon.
Had the most delicous food in an amazing setting and atmosphere. Staff were super friendly and more than happy to give drink and food recommendations. One waiter in particular with dungarees was a delight and recommended and served us many delicious tequilas! Will be returning very soon!
Beautiful food, although we felt as if we were being rushed to order.
Would have been great to have ceiling fans as it was quite warm inside, although it was very hot outside.
My partner and I fell in love with this restaurant 4 years ago on a trip to Melbourne. Now that we live here we decided to revisit Mamasita to see if it lived up to memories/hype. It did not disappoint! It's a cool Mexican restaurant with a great menu which takes a modern twist on classic dishes. This paired with a variety of delicious Mezcals and excellent service makes this establishment a Melbourne gem which only gets better with age.
Food quality isn’t amazing for the price point. More expensive that Fonda for example but definitely not as tasty.
Prefer not to do the feed me better food on the menu and it gets a bit expensive. Drinks were awesome.
The food did not have a good flavour
Very expensive banquet menu was not worth the cost
Did not have spiced rum or cider
Charged us for a bottle of wine more than double the cost of the one we had actually drunk
Cool place, great ambiance, a little too expensive. The set menu we had way too much food (remindended me of the horrible Sofia resturants...). I don't know I think it's nice to leave a restaurant still a little hungry. Staff were nice and friendly and some had a bit of a "seller" attitude. I would still recommend it
Great food, great margaritas. Always a must visit when in Melbourne!
I always dine at Mamasita when in Melbourne. It’s one of my favourite restaurants. Staff are friendly and the food is great. A must do.
Table was ready upon arrival, knowledgeable waiter, food great quality, expensive for smaller portions.
Great for a change, modern Mexican with a twist.
Refreshing to see a completely GF menu too!
We came for a friends birthday celebration , it was the perfect venue to enjoy drinks and great food
Delicious food, great atmosphere and knowledgeable staff
Such a great and lively atmosphere. The food was amazing and the service was quick and friendly. The waitstaff are so helpful for undecided diners. The best Mexican in Melbourne!!
Great food and great service! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would come back again.
Was a bit disappointed with the food, and quality of the food. We enjoy Mexican food and this just didn’t seem to match up to expectations; the best dish we had was potatoes. Everything else was not intended for two people and we were told they are for sharing. The fish tacos was ok as well but lacked traditional Mexican flavour. Ambience was good. Thought it was a bit crazy they said they had no standard seating avail when booking but there were plenty of standard seats avail for the duration of our stay.
Really enjoy dining at Mamasita. The entire menu pretty much is gluten free which is amazing for my partner with coeliacs, and every dish we've tried has been sensational! The drinks menu is great and bar staff have amazing knowledge of their product. The wait staff are friendly, knowledgable and helpful. We've been here 3 times and each time have been delighted with the delicious food and amazong service. Highly recommend Mamasita.
I loved the vibe of this place and the service from max excellent
Took advice from our waiter at the bar and went with the feed me menu with the beef upgrade
The food was excellent but you need to be hungry we were struggling at the end to get through it
The service and advice about the food was excellent
Drinks on the pricey side margaritas 19 dollars each
Bottle of Pinot 80 dollars
Total price with tip 324 dollars
I would recommend this restaurant but pick dishes rather than accept the feed me menu unless you really hungry
I’ve been here years ago and it was amazing. Unfortunately wasn’t as good experience second time around on NYE. We had to wait a long time after our reservation time to be seated, our drinks were forgotten, and the food wasn’t as good from a quality and flavour perspective.
Hi Brooke, Thank you for taking the time to write to us. We have responded in a private message.
We went to Mamasita for NYE dinner - second session set menu. Arrived at 8.20pm and was told their first session was running a little late. The floor manager was very apologetic, but no gratitudes were offered. We were seated at around 9pm, and the food quickly arrived which was good as we were hungry.. but the flow of service and the order of food are not according to time when each customer's table finishes their meal (was bit random)
But the main was thoroughly disappointing as it took a long time for the meal to arrive. Again, the floor manager was trying to be chatty and apologetic. By the time the food arrived, it is roughly around 10.30-10:45pm, and we were concerned we wouldnt make it to countdown in time.
Overall, for the price point we pay, we expect better flow and service, considering they would make changes and improvement after the delay they experienced in their first session.
This food is incredible! We were only in town for 2 days and went back for a second round because it was so good. Would recommend!
food was expensive and very average. the $79 feed me menu we had were disappointing except for the dessert. some of the courses were served to the wrong table and we had to wait for a long time. the only consolation was that the server lady kindly waived off our sangria. definitely not one to return. cheers
Fantastic food and really cool atmosphere. They sat the entire restaurant all at once (at 6pm), so then had to stagger the order taking a little bit, resulting in a longer than ideal wait times. Once we did order, food came efficiently and everything was incredibly delicious!
The feed me option for 69pp was substantial for a group of 3. The margaritas were delicious! Highly recommended for a casual and fun dining experience.
Super quick food service. Would have preferred more veggie options for tacos
I have always like Mamasitas because you can get decent Mexican food and great margaritas but lately you are trying way too hard with the food. Keep it simple! Far too much child oil. Guacamole floating in it, pouring out of tacos. Not great.
Too expensive for what it is, could have had more flavour in the Feed me menu.
Hola, We have transitioned to a more Modern Mexican - Pan Latin approach to our dishes. We appreciate that this does not suit everyone's tastes. Would you mind telling us which dishes you found to be expensive? Thanks for your time.
The food was delicious and the service was great. We were placed at the end of a bar for a 6 course meals so it was a bit uncomfortable and loud. Also there was a Sunday 10% surcharge and a credit card fee on top of an already expensive meal.
