We called in for a meal last week and I have to say I would not be overlly impressed with the restaurant. First when we were looking at the menu outside the waitress was standing right next to us smoking, which isnt too bad but she should have at least taken her apron off or walked a little further up the street. The greeting was friendly we were told to take any seat upstairs. Which when we took we were asked to move, no problem until we were asked to move again which I declined saying we had already done so. We were about to get up and go away because no one was taking our order but at last they did. The menu I think could be a little more exciting it is more of the same thing either swamped in cheese or not, seems like nothing you could not do at home. Drinks I must say are lovely if only they would arrive, I ordered a 2n drink and it arrived at the end of the meal, by my face the waiter knew i was not impressed and said sorry he had to go out and fetch a new bottle which ok but he should have said that beforehand, sent the drink back..I would not be running to call back to this place, and if I did I would be ordering from the starters course as it is the mix there is. So in short food would be ok if cheaper but as it stands nothing special. Staff would need a few leasons in service it is really bad and nearly cold..

The staff were very welcoming when we arrived, without a reservation. The food was heavy and low on taste. It felt like everything was made from different combinations of four large batches of stuff and felt that we could have done better at home. The drink selection was good and only good value if you were drinking sangria. The toilets were standard, but not great. Overall I felt it was a little over priced but I would go back again if only for the fun atmosphere.

First time in Cork with my partner and passing Cafe Mexicana, their early bird caught our eye, great value 3 course meal with a glass of Sangria for 21E. Love the ambiance of this place, very cosy. Myself and partner were seated by the window, waiter provided, lunch, early bird and a la carte menu. When ready to take our order we read from the early bird menu but there was a confusion, the waitress stated that they don’t serve the early bird menu and preferred to serve the lunch. Her reaction was very unwelcoming. Food was ok, not great.

6 of us had a great meal here last week. We got starters varying from potato skins to nachos, very good. Mains of enchiladas (beef delicious) beef salad, burritos and fajitas all very well received very tasty! The food is mildy spiced as stated on the menu, if you want it hotter you may ask. They also provide you with a jalepeno salsa if you wish to heat it up yourself. A great meal was had, we did have a little of a frosty reception however from a certain waitress, but would definitely return. 19 for fajitas seems a little steep (i didnt have these), so try for the ealry bird if you can.

Hi, While out xmas shopping in the freezing cold at the weekend, we were looking for something to heat us up as well as fill the gap. I had been here before and loved it so decided to come back. O and was I happy, food was delicious and the atmosphere is fabulous too, would definitely recommend this place for lunch, not sure about dinner as I have never been before.

I adore mexican food,but this place does NOT do it any justice.It's overpriced and bland.I'm just glad that the sangria was nice,otherwise I would have been utterly miserable.The place is not spacious and you're so close to the other patron that it's almost hard to move.The waiter was rude and slow.Don't go there.

I love mexican food and always get the fajitas when I go to Cafe Mexicana. Service can sometimes be a bit off but other than that there are no complaints whatsoever as I really enjoy the food.

Visted this restaurant for the second time recently and was not disappointed. It is quite small so i would advise booking ahead. I thought at first that €19 for Fajitas was quite expensive but to be honest it was well worth it....delicious food and nice friendly staff made our meal a very enjoyable experience. I would definitely recommend this Mexican marvel and will eat here again. PS: Try the nachos with Chicken for a starter.....YUM!!!!

I had a very enjoyable meal here with some friends. The value menu of 3 courses plus a glass of delicious sangria for €20 is really good and offers plenty of choice. The staff are really friendly and there's a nice atmosphere in a cosy setting. Definitely worth a visit.

My paretner and I recently visited Cafe Mexicana and ate from their early bird menu. Having eaten there before we were very disappointed this time. For starters the nachos were simply tortilla chips with melted cheese. The Friojles con Queso were good. For our mains we had enchiladas and burritos. Both of us felt that our food was not evenly heated and had quite possibly been reheated in the microwave. Even the refried beans seemed microwaved as they were hard on the outside. Despite friendly service, a nice atmosphere and tasty sangria, we left disappointed and feeling that there was much better value to be had around Cork.
