Drenched in bright colour and spiked with bold imagery, this joint has a fast-paced atmosphere reminiscent of the streets of its namesake nation.

Moodily lit with dripping candles, whimsically decorated with offbeat Mexicana, Mexico instantly transports you to another, cooler place. You can drink in the eclectic front bar or settle into the cosy dining area to explore the short but compelling menu.

Mexico celebrates the vibrant, fresh and lighter side of Mexican cuisine. The flavours are big, spicy and complex: grilled corn on the cob with lime-chilli butter; street-style salad and ceviche; soft tacos filled with pulled pork, grilled fish or skirt steak.

Plates are topped with house-made salsas and slaws and peppery mayonnaise spiced with jalapeño and chipotle.

Cocktails and tequila

The drinks keep the vibe loud and lively, with jugs of sangria and margaritas, including variations such as watermelon and tamarind, and Mexican twists on classic cocktails. There’s a good selection of top-shelf tequila and mezcal and a long list of Mexican beers.

Everything is served at prices that will leave you plenty of change to carry on your night or come back soon for more.

This place operates a strict walk-in policy, to accommodate everyone wanting to experience the food, fun and buzz that is Mexico. If they can’t seat you straight away, you might enjoy a sneaky drink or two just around the corner, at Mexico’s intimate new bar called IKTO.
