Description: The Prickly Pinata Fresh Mexican Cantina brings cheerful healthy, fresh and Mexican flavoured cuisine with a double dose of fun to Cotton Tree. The Prickly Pinata is open for lunch and dinner with an unbeatable view and transforms into a vibrant, busy evening restaurant. Vibrant pastel coloured walls painted with sugar skulls and an assortment of cactus-filled pot plants injects a relaxed Sunshine Coast beachside spin on traditional Mexican style, making it an ideal spot to chill out with a refreshing cocktail on the deck before settling in for a feast to share with friends. The Prickly Pinata's menu effortlessly combines traditional Mexican dishes with on-trend flavours, evident in crowd pleasers such as the tortilla crumbed zucchini chips with spiced beetroot and pepitas dip as well as the confit Bungalow pork taco with salsa verde, onion and coriander. The Prickly Pinata's menu has been designed to be shared, offering a variety of different sized & styled dishes. Our menu originates from Baja California which is a state of Mexico. Baja Mexican boasts the use of Fresh vegetables, fruits, meats and seafood. Prickly Pinata's menu is wide, offering choice to suit everyone's needs.
