Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were worried about dining here as some of the previous reviews talks about bland food and surly staff and not atmosphere . Nothing could be further from the truth. We arrived and were met by a very pleasant lady, Vanessa, she showed us to...our table and immediately got us water and left us to look over the drinks menu. Drinks and food were ordered through our waiter, Harry, a very happy pleasant and attentive young man. Our entree arrived quickly, Combination Dip with sufficient corn chips and the classic Frozen Margarita. Both presented well and very tasty dips. The frozen Margarita was the best we have had in ages. Our mains arrived, Burrito Del Mar for me and Chicken Enchilada and a Beef Taco for hubby. Both meals had lots of flavour and well prepared with lots of meat and seafood. When in Bendigo this will be our go to place especially if Vanessa and Harry are both on. I suggest you should do and judge for yourself.More

Our dining experience was further compromised by the bland and unexciting food served, which lacked flavor, originality, and excitement. This, coupled with the staff's statement about not having enough time to take our order, reflects a clear indication of the subpar level of service provided.

Delicious meal, perfect “Aussie spicy” older kids had a nice meal and didn’t complain 😜 filling and fresh. Busy and pleasant atmosphere. Corona battered cauli was a hit with all, agave dressing delightful. Maybe Mexican music would be nice? Thx again

We went there on Wednesday for a family of 9 dinner. Now yes there's Coronavirus restrictions fully understand but yes we were split up on to two tables but the tables were in different rooms with walls separating us. It was like having a dinner...at home with just the 3 of us as usual. Anyway I saw the funny side of that it, is what it is. Now we arrived at 5.20pm to be out by 7.00pm all good. We ordered dips for starters then mains I ordered the slow cooked beef with a wine and onion sauce. After a 40 minutes wait I asked were our dips were? Oops forgot to send the order through to the kitchen, then our mains arrive. Now I freely admit that Mexican is not my first choice of meal but the other two on my table love it. The meat was DISGUSTING even the others on my table could not eat it but the rice was lovely. So no entree or main meal for me. We decided to have dessert I wanted to get the taste of the meat out of my mouth. So I ordered the Sticky Date and the others ordered 2 chocolate mouses they took 25 minutes to arrive and then I was informed that they had sold out of the sticky date. We arrived at 5.20 it is limited seating they were not that busy, all our desserts are pre made. To take 25 minutes to just get them out of the fridge and to discover Oops we forgot to make some. The kicker to top off the night was we were charged for what we didn't receive, go figure that out. What a poor experience for our first night out for dinner in 7 months. Very very disappointed with our dinning experience but on the positive side they have many areas that they can improve on. This is only my dinning experience and I do hope that it was the exception rather than the norm.More

Just got home to eat my takeaway Mexican food, only to find half of my order missing. The docket was stuck to the bag and showed everything that I ordered, however I have been charged for everything and only received half of my order. I...live 25 mins away so no point driving all the way back for the sake of $20 of missing food. Pretty disappointed!More

Ordered takeaway trying to support local businesses during tough times. They got the order wrong this is about the 4th time in a row. I rang them to tell them and got a rude response. Food was small and not very good. Wont be back....You should avoid at all cost.More

We went with a family and were very disappointed with the quality of food. Mexican is not difficult to get right, but they have missed the mark dramatically. Even the kids didn’t eat their meals. The 2 stars are for the service, we couldn’t fault...the wait staff, they were great. Unfortunately, we won’t return.More

We dropped in Friday night without a booking, luckily they were able to find us a table. Hubby and I decided to share a taco platter and the combo fajitas, the food was out quickly and beautifully presented. The food was outstanding, great flavours and...plenty for us both. Highly recomend a visit, you won't be disappointed.More

It's been a while since we last ate at the Mexican Kitchen but the punch remains delicious. As always, the restaurant was busy and noisy. We didn't book but we were found a table with very little waiting time. I had the vegetarian sincronizada but...don't ask me to pronounce it. Basically, it's a tortilla filled with cheese and vegies served with rice and the usual suspects of salsa, sour cream and guacamole. We ended our meal with a serve of churros. I would have to agree with previous posters re: it was a bit pricey given the relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant and the type of food served. The service was attentive.More

Went here on a Saturday night; was an early seating so service was not an issue. Food was very good overall; the chilli con queso is excellent and the enchiladas and quesadillas are very tasty. I can also recommend the jalapeño margarita if you’re feeling...adventurous. Only disappointment was the churros. Overall, we were very pleased and will be back!More

Having arrived without a booking on Easter Saturday it appeared we weren’t going to be able to get a table but the owner/manager worked some magic and found a table for our family of 4. From the minute we sat down all staff were extremely...friendly and accommodating. The restaurant was very busy but we didn’t feel rushed and enjoyed the atmosphere. Our food was probably the best Mexican we have had for some time. The Nachos were large enough for two, and we recommend the Quesadillas and Taco Platter. We aren’t locals but would definitely return next time we’re in town.More

A well established and well frequented business - the decor is stereotypical mexican and it's really noisy. Service was inconsistent - waitress appeared 3 time sin 5 minutes to get our order and was the nowhere to be found when we needed the bill. Food...was very average - beef nachos with hardly any beef or salsa, chicken drumsticks were tasty but from tiny chickensMore
