Came here for dinner and drinks. Great service, good atmopshere and truly a mexican experience. Margaritas were excellent and lots of mexican beer choices. Good menu, good value and tasty mexican food.

Our party of four visited for dinner on a busy Thursday night. My expectations weren't very high after reading some of the reviews and upon receiving the meals I was very impressed with the flavours. The negative reviews about the service are very true. For a busy Thursday night with 30+ guests I was surprised to see only 2 wait... More

On a whim, It's very quaint and tightly packed seating. But this adds to the places feeling and vibe. It's a great vibe, and we had the most friendly and humerus waiter. The young lady was amazing, knew her menu inside out. My partner and I first ordered a half plate of nachos worn the works, it was amazing. Then... More

A small cosy restaurant that was very busy for a Monday night, open from 5.30pm daily, so no downtime it seems. People just kept coming in through the front door all evening, and tables outside on footpath were full too. Great colourful mexican decor, dark in some areas but candles are romantic. Posters, signs, hanging textiles and Aztec statuettes and... More

Meals are hot, tasty and nutritious. On the down side the restaurant itself is crowded, dark and a little noisy, but we were there on a Saturday night.

We're very busy people that travel a fair bit. We called in late, just before close, but that was no trouble. Quickly directed to a seat by the friendly staff, drinks came promptly and the meal was just as quick, No mess, no fuss, great service and a good meal to boot. If you want quick service with enchiladas to... More

Just returned to Muchos after a disappointing visit nearly a year ago ( see previous post). Totally happy! The old menu has returned, fantastic attentive staff who were all so helpful and friendly. The meals are "enormous " and plates are sizzling. Well done! We will be making Monday nights Muchos night once again... 👍👍🤗🤗
