One of the best restaurants in St Ives. Been here a few times now and it never disappoints. Great atmosphere and the food is really high quality. Tasty and presented very well. Booking is a must as we have been disappointed not being g able to get in during our stay. Will return next time we visit St Ives. The chimichanga was gorgeous.

We actually went to The Mex without having seen it on trip advisor first but even at 6.30pm it was almost full. We had a superb meal with great cocktails and pleasant efficient service. Chicken Fajitas were really good especially with added avocado. A nice change.

We've been a few times to The Mex and haven't been disappointed. We'd booked a table as we know how popular it is and got seated quickly. Everyone is so friendly without being in your face and we were given time to choose food and drink. There is so much to choose from and there's a specials board too. The food was as delicious as always & cooked from scratch. There was appropriate banter with the staff and the atmosphere is lovely. Be prepared for it to feel cosy as the tables fill up, but it adds to the ambience! We'd definitely recommend the Mex and we're already planning our next visit!

A great little restaurant only about nine tables and a little quirky but serves great food and has a great atmosphere,the young lady that looked after us was friendly and did a great job. If you don't go here when in St Ives you really are missing out !

On a trip longer than a few days, you can get a bit bored of fish, chips, burgers so it was nice to go somewhere a little different.

Two of us ate here on our last evening in St Ives. We received quick and friendly service, the waitress did a very good job. She was by herself with a few tables but still took the time to chat to us, service didn’t feel rushed.

We shared a mixed combo starter which was nice along with a jug of mojito.

For mains I had the steak fajitas. I like that you just received two big wraps rather than lots of little ones. The steak was nicely done and the accompaniments went well. My other half had a burrito which he enjoyed too, particularly the pulled pork.

Overall a nice meal and reasonably priced. We would return again if in the area.
