Hot tamale reviews, thank you everyone who took your time to write us a review throughout july. here are our favourites.


Stopped in for a late lunch and a beer and stayed for some cocktails and Tequilas. The food was fantastic as was the drinks and service second to none. Didn’t want to leave but had to walk back to our room a little sober. Highly recommend.

We got the chilli nachos, enchiladas and churros. All were very tasty and meals were served promptly. We enjoyed many $6 sangrias too. Best Mexican in Darwin!

Firstly the bad news: this place is expensive, probably slightly over priced but you are paying for the view as well as the food. The service was fast and friendly and a minor error was very quickly rectified. The fish tacos are amazing as is the sangria. The cheese and corn dip starter should not be missed.

The food was amazing! Service is a bit slow but the food is worth the wait. I had the Spanish Mackerel, my husband had the Carnitas and my daughter had the Carne Asada and we all enjoyed our meals. The only part of my dish that I did not care for was the pile of canned red sauce on my plate. It was not seasoned and served no point but everything else was delicious!

Went for lunch with office team. Food was pre-ordered, which arrived on time for most of us. The menu had good variety of Mexican food compared to most places in Darwin. Portions were ok, not generous but not stingy. Food was also good and most people on my table gave a score of 7 to 8 out of 10 for their food.

Great meal overlooking the waterfront, burrito bowl was delicious. Good service by Monique very helpful

Easy going restaurant with the music to get you in the mood. We had excellent service on our night and the waitresses impressed. Have I had better tacos in my life, yes. But was relaxed and enjoyed my tequila flight!

Best food, best host, Becca McSteel. Thank you for a great lunch and i would have to recommend this to every one. Just do it!

Thank you for a great meal. I had the burrito bowl, which was delicious. Becca gave us awesome service too. Make sure you grab a bite here after you swim in the lagoon or wave pool.

Yummy fish tacos, nachos, good service! It was awesome to read the menus that stated they don’t serve straws with any drinks and the wait staff supporting the same! First restaurant in three weeks that actually realized the difference it can make by not serving plastic straws! We had our own steel straws (we travel with them everywhere), so it was a positive lunch!
Great location, child friendly and environment friendly. Definitely returning and highly recommended! Well done to the team
