Ordered the special - ‘chicken & chorizo burrito’... absolutely beautiful, fresh ingredients, perfectly and pleasantly spiced. Good service and lovely ambience.

Really good portion size, relieved that we didn’t order the nachos to start too!! (And yes, we have good appetites!)

Will most definitely be back!!!

We booked the Mex for early on a Tuesday eve during the Easter holidays as we were staying in St Ives for a few days and I’m extremely glad we did. It was packed at 6pm and for very good reason. The decor is super colourful and the waiting staff friendly and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious with a decent kids choice too. I had the fish tacos and an orange and avocado salad. Everything was super tasty and fresh with just the right amount of spice to make it interesting.
My husband had chicken fajitas which also went down a treat.
Our jug of Margarita was most welcome too!
Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this restaurant, you won’t be disappointed.

Booked the day before due to St Ives being particularly busy and some of the higher rated establishments being booked up quickly.

The friendly staff and owner made this meal very enjoyable and allowed for a relaxed dining experience.

The nacho starter was very good and the burrito main was very tasty, in fact some of the best Mexican food from visits to various restaurants offering similar.

Food and drinks not overly expensive.

This place is very small but it had a nice atmosphere.

Worth a visit!

First ate here last weekend as a group of seven and was that impressed we booked again for Thursday. Both meals were great. Delicious authentic food, attentive service in a warm cosy atmosphere. Advise booking in advance.

We went for my birthday meal this evening and were not disappointed, we managed to get a table at short notice and am glad we did.

There is a really great atmosphere as the place is small and cosy, the margaritas were excellent and the food was well cooked and extremely tasty. Staff were very friendly and helped my husband and son plan a surprise birthday cake for me.

We cannot fault the place, well done to all involved in running this establishment. Thanks for helping to make my birthday night special on our last night in St Ives.

Thank San J
