Saturday Lunch. Arrived just after opening time (2pm).
We were the only diners when we ordered.
Nice ambience, our waiter was friendly and helpful.
A great dry Rose worth trying 'De Casta Rosado 2016'.
Was slightly disappointed with the small variety of choices on the lunch menu.
Went with the Charred Corn (2 pieces in a serve) and Quesadilla Chicken Tinga.
Both tasty but surprisingly and annoyingly cold.
Will give it another chance but in the evening with the extended menu.
2 dishes + bottle of wine = $69.00

We visited this restaurant recently and had a great night. The restaurant was busy so we were lucky to get a table. Despite the business our orders were taken promptly and there was not a long wait for our food.

We started with the chilaquiles with the additional pulled pork which blew us away - the flavours were definitely there and we savoured every mouthful.
This was followed by a selection of lamb, beef and pork tacos which were all incredibly flavoursome. The tortillas were soft and velvety which allowed you to enjoy the full flavour of the toppings for each taco.

We were definitely impressed with the food and although the sangria we had was different from the usual sangria at other restaurants, it was also quite enjoyable.

I am looking forward to when I am next in Melbourne as there are many other dishes on Mesa Verde's menu which I would love to try.

Went for dinner with a friend after an afternoon at rooftop, and we were greeted by our wonderful host Torie, who was so friendly, helpful, gracious and welcoming. We asked advice on what to order and she was great at suggesting dishes and catering for dietary needs. Fish taco amd fries were delicious, and my friend thoroughly enjoyed the black bean taco.
Also had the ghostface killah margarita by suggestion of Torie and it was an exceptional blend of smoke, spice, and mescal.

I went here for the 1st time about a year ago and have always wanted to try this restaurant as I have heard great things and it didn't disappoint.

Located in the historic Curtain House building on Swanston Street, close to trams and parking is easily located on the side streets, this 6 level building has a ambiance like no other.

So take the lift or the 7 flights of stairs to the top level, and arrive at this Mexican eatery with candle lit tables, and courteous staff, the margaritas are spectacular and the best i have had also I recommend their sangria as well, great for a romantic night or catch up with friends, the food is good there are some different combos that I wasn't into, but mostly great.

Staff are helpful and speedy and already happy to help with recommendations ie: Chefs Choice Platter on the menu

Please check out this eatery you won't regret it.

Yeah I went there. Heard of a Mexican fondue - well now you have and boy did they nail it. Cool vibes, chill staff and great snacking. Try the cheese fondue with chorizo, the fish taco, and the quesadillas were to die for. Although we only stopped in for a short visit before hitting the town, we walked away in a cheese coma.
