Dined at Garcias numerous times over the years but have found its no way near the quality it use to be . Three of my family had the nachos , my mums was disgusting with the chicken dry and the whole meal stuck together . I ate the chilli Concarne with was good. We decided to have some coffees after...

This is a lovely, cosy, friendly restaurant. Food is delicious, portions huge so I had to take half home. Bianca was delightful, so accommodating and friendly beyond belief. All in all a very enjoyable casual night out. I will definitely be back.

Had a group of 15 dine here and everyone was over the moon with their meals. They are huge portion sizes and full of flavour!! The staff went out of their way to make our experience great and stayed way past closing so we could keep drinking and eat our cake!!! Would definitely come back here. Huge thank you to... More

I've been visiting Garcia's for over 20 years, first at their original location in Duncraig and more recently at their location in Padbury. Over the years I've had many good meals. Last night I went to Garcia's for a meal and was pretty disgusted with the toilets: bad, bad smell; sinks and benches that were dirty; a floor that really... More

I've lived near this restaurant since it opened but never even considered going until a friend booked it for a local outing and I'm so glad she did as we all had a great meal and service. I had the fajitas which were delicious. I could have had a couple more tortillas but otherwise, very satisfied and will keep coming... More

Having visited the U.S. many times, I have become a huge fan of tex-mex food. I was excited to try a Mexican restaurant I the northern suburbs, rather than just the take away style Mad Mex, etc. Fajitas is a favourite of mine and pretty hard to completely mess up, I mean, even Old El Paso isn't bad. Boy was... More

It's probably been 17 years since I had a Mexican meal in Perth and have great memories of cheap meals and super yummy food. Since then I have been living in the USA so have probably been spoilt with genuine Mexican food at a cheap price. Our experience at Garcias was a little disappointing! On the upside....The waitress was lovely... More

I had the entree size Tostada which was quite.nice , however the salad on the side had been sitting around long enough... More

We booked for a group of seven for a get together dinner but ended up with 9 people attending. We phoned ahead at short notice and had no problem getting the extra two booked in. The staff were friendly and welcoming and were great at explaining the dishes to a couple of newbies to Mexican food. The food was fantastic,... More
