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.

Staff were great but food was just average. I got a naked burrito bowl which had next to no flavour, & just tasted bland. When you eat Mexican, you want pops of flavour but there was none. Even the pomegranate margarita was just meh. So...bummed that we didn’t go somewhere else.More

Located directly across from the beach, that was why we çhose this restaurant. The menu features all the regular Mexican dishes and I had chicken nachos. It had plenty of toppings and was tasty. My brother had vegetarian enchilada which he enjoyed. It was nice...to sit and look out over the oceanMore

This place is amazing. We went on Sunday 22nd Oct, and the food was excellent, drinks were good and vibe was chill. The only waiter on the floor was killing it, running 12 tables like it was nothing! If I had a business I would...hire him.More

Possibly the most pathetic meal I have ever had. Rubbish.... 100% rubbish. Be warned, it really is that bad ( actually it's worse).

Firstly I am a local and haven’t been to this restaurant for 18 months . Couldn’t believe the difference . It was absolutely terrible . Worst Mexican I have ever had . I had a beef nachos, who would think they could screw this up.... I kept tasting traces of fish like the food had been cooked in a pan after they had cooked fish in it . Service slow but friendly . Won’t ever go back and have told my family already . A waste of money.More

Change in management and so is their food. Not at all Mexican food, they now serve fish & chips, dumplings and burgers as well. Disappointed, won’t go back. Service was good, can’t blame them waitresses when new owners has no clue about Mexican food. Wished...I asked for a refund.More

Went down to Manly Mex & Co today for lunch, waited 45 minutes for food to come out. Naked Burrito came in a cereal bowl (basically), actually two cereal bowls stacked that must have sat under the warming lights for a long time as it...so was dried out, the sour cream even had a skin on it. I wish I had taken a photo to show how distasteful it was. Beef tacos, the meat was so dry my daughter could hardly swallow them. Mixed seafood fajitas, prawns were nice but everything else was dry and over cooked, again seemed like it had sat around for a while. Fish burrito was lukewarm and tasteless. Even the salsa which unfortunately we ordered 2 serves of, was made with unripe tomotoes. When paying my husband asked if they were having staffing issues as we were trying to be understanding to be told 'No, why?'. After giving feedback he was thanked and told they would pass it on the kitchen. Anyway, we have crossed this restaurant off our list to return to which is a shame as we have been there 2 years ago and had a good experience.More

Warm beer, dirty glasses, grumpy waitress and cold beef ribs. Man....what a horrible place , food was horrible , they offered to redo the ribs . I decided not take because knew that would be the same. Amateur place, when complained about warm beer ....waitress...said "IT WAS REFRIGERATED"....and walked away. Had to complain to a second person ..manager i guess, to have my beer replaced and again had a lukewarm one served. At the end nobody even asked about how was the experience there. If u value ur money avoid like the plague.More

I came for dessert last week. Simple churros. The waiter was too busy talking to girls to bother grabbing our food so the chef hits the bell to get his attention. He then spoke to the chef who was working alone with alot of attitude...and disrespect. When they finally arrived, the churros were very flat looking, and once I poked the fork it fell apart. It was literally raw dough. I called over the waiter and the chef said that is how they are meant to be. I touched it and the dough ran down my finger. I asked for another one and the second one was burnt charcoal and bitter. I don't understand how it's that hard to fry dough. I wouldn't trust the cooking of actual meats there. The waiter didn't bother to ask how it was. It was left on the table uneaten and when I said that was inedible and it was horrible he said oh well I'll pass that on and I had to pay for that rubbish dessert and rubbish service.More

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
