Service was friendly and drinks were good. However, the food was not inspired. Guacamole (my test for a Mexican restaurant) tasted like something purchased in bulk. I’m guessing that Melbourne does not have a large Mexican population. In the future, if I want ethnic food,...More

My daughter chose this as an interesting spot to bring an out of town friend for a drink and something to eat. The girls loved the “Nelly’s special” margarita... infused with gummy bears and only $10 a glass. We had a light meal...the con quesa...More

Visited this restaurant with my daughter (and the rest of the family) for her 21st birthday. It was an incredibly hot day (over 40C) and simply too hot to sit outside and enjoy the Hardware Lane ambiance. Inside the air-conditioner really struggled to keep up...More

Saw the review on trip adviser, Love great Mexican and was a little disappointed with the lack of service. Only 3 tables in for lunch and still had to ask for drinks and to eventually order. Got the burrito which looked more like a large...More

Now I love my Mexican food and Amigos did not disappoint. The serves are big so be careful with your entree. I had the best margarita I've ever had (sorry Margaritaville). Went in to see the person who made it thinking he/she was American or...More

I'm from Texas, so I know Mexican food. I had a hankering for it, and took a risk thinking Ozzies might not know how to make good fajitas. My criteria for good Mex or Tex-Mex is 1) yummy, 2) plentiful, and 3) cheap. Well, Amigos...More

This lovely Mexican Restaurant in a charming laneway was a spur of the moment choice after the place we intended to have dinner was closed over the Christmas-New Year period. The food was very tasty and the service a highlight. We had the combination fajitas...More

Really delicious but pricey drinks after happy hour ends - well actually I guess they are standard prices but I am not much of a drinker so I am always shocked by retail drink costs! There was two of us and between us we shared...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
