Great view... and great food, too. After three trips to Mexico, we no longer cross-the-border, but we do miss the food. Mad Mex may not be completely authentic, but they offer great food, in a pleasant locale... and at reasonable prices. We enjoyed our quesadillas.. hers a spicy vegetarian... and mine an equally tasty beef. As others note, there's good... More

We being a family of vegetarian, & with kid who likes everything non veg, it's tough to find a good place. But this really hit the spot and all had a great time. Churros is awesome.

I personally love Mexican food because of the spices. This place has such a good spice in the food. I order spicy salsa, I got it. I order grilled chicken, I could smell the smoke from it. Brown rice cooked perfectly. I ask for extra Jalapeno, they gave me a lot of those. Overall, this place is the best!

Had a chick or chipotle burrito and also a naked burrito with all the salads, guacamole etc. it is freshly made and you can choose what you require and I can't say it was bad. You have the options of sizes as well and the price was reasonable.

Had a quick lunch here 7th Jan, outdoor dining overlooking the jetties and swimming beach. Lots to choose from, I enjoyed the three soft beef tacos as a meal...just right. If you like Mexican food, this restaurant is fine.
