We say…

Mexico restaurant, Derby, is a traditional and friendly Mexican eatery situated on Sadler Gate; an area in Derby that is renowned for its popularity with drinkers and diners. With a reputation for serving authentic Mexican food alongside a huge range of tequilas, this restaurant is sure to add spice to any occasion.

With a lively and welcome atmosphere, Mexico opens its doors to every kind of diner from families and business associates to couples and groups of friends. Spread across two floors with the lower home to the bar and restaurant and the upper designed for lounging and enjoying one of Mexico’s forty types of aged tequila, there is a space to suit every occasion. Exposed brick walls and photographs and posters adorning the walls gives the venue a rustic taverna feel whilst soft lighting keeps it intimate and cosy. There is also the added benefit of a private function facility that offers all of the authentic charm of the main restaurant with a little added privacy. Able to seat groups of up to 16 it is perfect if you are planning a celebration or want to add a bit of exclusivity to your event.

From vegetable fajitas to steak quesadilla, Mexico has it all. The menu is extensive and offers guests an exceptional range of Mexican fare including the delicious house speciality cassoulet, packed with chorizo and pork sausages with beans, mushrooms and a cheese and chilaquile topping. The pre-theatre menu is also incredibly good value for money and offers a starter and main from the Classico section of the menu for a bargain price. 

Whether you are looking for a party destination, pre-theatre meal, business meeting with a twist or an intimate meal for two, Mexico’s facilities provide everything you could ask for, with a delicious menu to boot.

    Overall:

    The restaurant was very busy with Christmas booking, which meant tables were placed quite close together. However, we still received prompt service, food was tasty and hot. Our plates were cleared! We were given plenty of time to finish our drinks and relax following the meal. Would definatley go again and one of the nicer Mexican restaurants in Derby.

    Had to ask for a wine bucket which I feel should automatically be supplied to keep white wine cool.
