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.

Reviewed 27 September 2020 via mobile

Fresh concept with modern mexican food. I like to think this as a new restaurant in Turku even if Mex-mex has been operating in another location for years. The food was creative with lot of techniques well executed and balanced. Excellent wine pairing. Quick and...friendly service. Still some uplift with bar decor and restrooms would be recommended but overall a very nice place indeed. Weeked Dj was a cherry on the top.More

My favorite mexican restaurant in Turku. Lunch includes soup, main course and small dessert and I have never been disappointed. Dishes are beautiful and so tasty. During Covid-19 we have been picking up some take away lunches from here and the meal tastes great at...home also. I really love this place.More

I knew nothing of the place and anticipated a Cali Mexican lunch with a 20-year old greeting me entering the restaurant. Instead I found a slice of lunch heaven with a minimalistic decor. Three course menu with quality ingredients cooked well. Nice clean flavours and...enough chiles to satisfy my palate. Served to the table the portions were small but put together plenty. At 10,40 € this is a steal and would highly recommend it to anyone. Coffee was extra 1,50 € and tasted good.More

The staff greeted us friendly as we walked in. We were served a set menu for lunch. Both the cook and the staff were very attentive. We had some talked while enjoying their carefully prepared dishes. Great food, great vibe and great service. A pity...the place is not in the main area and would be quite difficult to reach for regular street-goer. Highly recommend!More

Having visited Mex-Mex twice this summer on a weekday at lunch time, I must say I am not pleased at all. On both visits, restaurant seemed to be open. However, in the first visit they had an anniversary and were closed for the public. And...on the second visit, today well before 2 pm, they had a couple dining inside, but they said they are expecting a group and doesnt serve singles. I suggest they should get a webpage or something to inform diners, because it is frustrating to come all the way to the door just to find out they are closed in the middle of lunchtime. No good. Luckily there is a nice Vietnamese restaurant with excellent servings not far, and they make my day!More

Went in for a lunch with no expectations and was very pleasantly surprised. Friendly staff and super tasty food. Great value for money too. On Fridays they are open later so will return to dinner check what's on a la carte.

A bite of Mexico in Finland. This is not just a traditional Mexican restarant but there is true inspiration by the main chef on the dishes.

Great place. The chef makes some really good three course lunches for an affordable price, with fresh exciting new menus daily. The food is authentic, Mexican-style cuisine, not just some tex-mex stuff.

We came for lunch at Mex Mex, a local friend from Turku brought us here. The food was delicious. We were looking at our starters (a broccoli soup) with in minutes of sitting down. Main course (chicken quesadilla with quac and beans) followed in a...timely manner. Desert continued to impress even if it was a bit on the smaller side. To sum it up Mex Mex is a fantastic little restaurant to grab a quick simplistic Mexican lunch.More

I have visited here twice for lunch. Unfortunately I found this place just few weeks ago even it has ran much longer. Both times food has been so delicious. By far the best Mexican kitchen I have found in Finland. It impossible to speak about...some texmex place at same day... Lunch cost just 10 euros including starter soup, main course and dessert. Everything is prepared in open kitchen and is home made.More

Reading all the hype online got my expectations really high, even though I tried to lower them knowing that it would only lead to dissapointments. Ok, now I got to be honest, it was a bit of a dissappointment, and that was not due to...my high expectation. 10 € for a three course meal, served to the table is a big plus, but for a basic workday lunch, it took way too long. If you have nowhere to be than it's not a problem. The menu is what it is, one option take it or leave it. The starter soup was very bland, just basic vegetable soup. The main course was a pork belly sandwich (tortas ahogadas) which was actually quite tasty and had a nice kick to it. Not that big of a portion, but I didn't mind. The flan was a nice tasty end to the meal, not that big but it didn't need to be. The place it self is nice and clean. It's an open kitchen so you eat in the same room as where they cook the food. The service was ok. I'll give this place another try for sure.More

It was probably a bit clumsy in the begining, but now it is rolling there. I highly recommend also for dinner which is available from thursday to saturday. The prices might need reduction though.

The food is delicious and gives most excellent value for your money. The food is simple and delicious, authentic Mexican food and the lunch doesn't make you feel like stuffed goose afterwards - something what I value a lot.
