Still good a year on, although they may be learning something about portion control. Everything is delicious. The service is friendly and attentive. The music is LOUD, but so is the young crowd around you. Very enjoyable.

It was not a cheap but was an enjoyable evening out. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It is quite cramped though - quite small and packed with diners so there is not much privacy or space. Nevertheless, we would go there again at some time but would avoid busy weekends.

There are so many good things to say, so I'll start with the negative. 1) toilets were dirty 2) the air con is too weak to keep you cool. 3) seating is cramped and infringing on offensive. My sweaty back touched another sweaty back more than twice. The goods, I'll summarise first A) location B) staff C) drinks D) food... More

Narrabean is the sort of place you go through on your way to Pittwater or Palm Beach. So when someone suggested we try Mexicano in Narrabean we were really not confident. The reality however was a massive surprise and somewhere we will definitely return to. Mexicano is a cosy little restaurant that was heaving on a Thursday evening. I booked... More

Great service with a tapas style menu plus a drinks list with a myriad of tequilas and cocktails. Loved the fish tacos. They drip feed the plates so it's easy to add more as the night progresses. The food is fresh and creatively prepared. Nice busy vibe right on the beach. Don't forget to try their little cantina in Mona... More

A group of four of us hadn't been for probably over a year due to an average experience but we are glad we gave it another shot. The food is pricey but it was definitely worth it this time. The dishes we chose were melt in your mouth good. There were fairly large gaps between some of the plates but... More

Dropped in for a bite after a busy Sunday and were not disappointed! No trouble getting a seat at 6 pm - the staff were very friendly, welcoming and attentive through the meal. For starters we had the cobless corn - yummy and easier to deal with than on the cob, scallop ceviche - interesting but a bit too spicy,... More

OK. No Nachos and RSL club style "Mexican " food here. Instead lovely, lush and tasty dishes that invite sharing as choosing is too difficult. Quality is way above your standard Sydney offerings in such a type of restaurant. Servings are not particularly large, so you'll need few dishes. The cocktails were a bit mediocre (and expensive fir what they... More

This is our favourite place to eat in Narrabeen. Everything we've ever ordered here is fresh and delicious. It's always busy so you will need a reservation; especially on weekends. You can sometime walk up and get a place at the bar, but even that is rare sometimes. Even though everything on the menu is amazing, the fish tacos are... More

We landed at the Mexicano in Narrabeen on a Saturday (14 May) as we could not find a table in any other Mexican restaurant ion the Manly area. We found the food quite different from the other traditional restaurants. We liked it. Now, after spending six weeks in Mexico for work, I realise that what we ate at the Mexicano... More
