Our family visits St Ives more then twice every year and instead off cooking we always go to a restaurant at night. This year we decided to book ahead as from past experience places can get booked up quickly and you can find it hard to get into places. We saw The Mex, I think it was moderately new, and decided to book it. Once we got in they took us too the second floor to wait for our table as we were a bit early. On this floor there was a sofa, good restroom facilities and a small area for kids to play while they wait. They handed us a menu and we picked our food. The menu had good selection. We were only there for around 5 minutes until they brought us back downstairs to our table. The service was extremely quick and they had colouring for the kids to do as they waited. The food was nice and had kids English dishes, for the fussier kids, as well. Overall the service and food e.t.c was extremely good. My only negative point would be that there wasn’t that many tables and they were all cramped together. It was a bit stuffy and loud. But all together I would recommend this restaurant.

Always enjoy our meals at The Mex and this was one was no different. Lovely margaritas, delicious starter (we had the olives and accompaniments) and fantastic main - my partner had the chilli and he really rated it, I had chicken fajitas and paid extra for avocado and bacon and so enjoyed it all!

What's even better every time the bill arrives you have a pleasant surprise because it is so well priced. Service fab too. Keep it up guys because we will definitely be back.
