About
Motel Mexicola supplies you with authentic Mexican cuisine not unlike that cooked in restaurants, served on street corners and in homes in Mexico. Specializing in Mexican Tapas our menu is designed for you to share. Ask our staff to order for you so you can experience the menu the way it is meant to be ordered and take a journey with us through the different flavors of Mexico. Be warned though, if its tex-mex you are after this is not what we do. We do fresh, fun interactive food that will make you want to come back for more. We guarantee you will love it!!

I visited with friends while biking around Petitenget. Always be lovely place to visit. And they apply excellent health protocol start at the lobby. The staff so friendly. Not much people at this time. We spent around 250K for 3 beverages and one light meal

I came with friends 2 weeks ago, the place is really unique and the food there is delicious. I come in the evening to enjoy music and have a drink at the bar after dinner. Great hangout place with friends.

Lots of people from Jakarta been to this place. So i might give it a try for a quick visit to enjoy beer and small bites. The place is so colorful, for those who like to feed their insta page then this is the place.

A haven for hipsters, influencers and digital nomads from around the globe, there doesn't seem to be anything tying this place to Bali, save its location. Aesthetically and atmospherically pleasing, Motel Mexicola looks like it could have been plucked from any downtown or coastal city...and dropped on this small island. The menu options are delicious and priced to match! Can come here for a fun night out, but I wouldn't call this place a "must visit".More

Motel Mexicola is a bit of a Swiss army knife in terms of function; it's there as a restaurant, a bar, a club, and it's popular to boot. We went in for a bite to eat and a couple of drinks and only managed to...get sat by the front door as we watched the swaying meat market that is a club in Seminyak do its thing. It was like looking at a lava lamp made of people. We ordered a couple of tapas-style dishes to while the night away at Motel Mexicola, specifically the calamares, the tuna tostada, the chicken tacos, and the pork quesadilla. All of these went down a treat with a couple of beers, and were just the right amount of food that we needed, We went into Motel Mexicola with one aim in mind, getting food, but we left having experienced (by proxy) one of the most popular and lively nights you can have out in Seminyak. If we ever wanted to stretch the use of the word 'party' as a verb, you can bet we'd be back in a flash.More

Visited a few months ago - not bad was worth the discount you get what you pay for right ? They started 50% off again except have put ALL the prices up .... normally $3.50 taco is now $5 before the discount !!!! They also...put a sticker over your phone - as social distancing is practiced this can only be to stop you taking a photo of the ‘NEW’ menu with inflated prices. The food was also very average ... minimal topping - the meat was dry ... and of course no table water available .... menu doesn’t list prices for water or beer . Never again ... we were a group of 4 who live here in Bali & will not go there again or take friends or family when they visit.More

Tacos that weren't tacos. One small, tasteless very expensive taco. If it hadn't been half price because of covid I would have complained. Expensive cocktails that have far too much ice.

Depends what drink but the tacos aren’t that expensive, I’d say you could get a feed and a beer for $20 Australian

I'm not sure and sure hope it's got nothing to do with the bottled drink.
