    Mexico to Rome: Mixing Italy and Mexico?

    by Mahieu Written Apr 29, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had my doubts before entering: what an idea to mix Italian and Mexican food?
    But I could really recommend this restaurant. Classy interior and very delicious food! Service is ok.

    Favorite Dish: I had a pasta salmone: pasta with salmon, garlic, creamy sauce and parmesan: yummie!
    My partner had a Swiss salad: mixed salad with bacon, croutons and blue cheese, also very delicious!

    Kind of a funky concept, since Italian and Mexican dishes have little in common that I can see - kind of like in Boston how they like to match up Mexican and Cajun foods. But Mexico to Rome is a very nice place, nice atmosphere, not too large, great service, and I'd defintiely go again.

    Favorite Dish: The pasta carbonara was delicious!!

    Mexico to Rome

    Early bird menu before 5 p.m., very friendly staff

    All the meals I had here were taste sensations!

    Favorite Dish: Spaghetti Carbonara with black pepper
    The mexican chicken filet was excellent as well. Great sauce. Unfortunately (sorry Bigs!) they don't serve the very tasty Penne Arrabiata anymore!

    Mexico to Rome: Cool, trendy and good

    The setting is cool and trendy.

    They don't have a large menu but they're cheap for the Early Birds. We were there at 6.45 pm - early enough

    We had chili with nacho's or with guacemole for starters and Chili with bread and chicken for main course.

    With the 10% taxes, we paid 29 euro's
    Service was good and efficient

    i love mexican food, so read about this place on the site and made my way there!
    it's got to be the the best place in temple bar......they do a great early bird meal for 13 euro, starter and main course. all the staff are irish and very friendly. we went back again a couple of days later and they remembered us and really looked after us!
    dublin can be expensive to eat out in, but this place was great value.

  • Mexico to Rome: Terrible Mexican Food!

    by ricewine44 Written May 6, 2007

    The food was terrible and service even worse. I ordered Nacho chips and salsa - got Doritos with tomato sauce. The chicken burrito tasted salty and canned. Then they wouldn't give me the early bird price because I got the salsa instead of the more expensive guacamole so it cost me twice as much as it should have. This was a terrible experience - I will never go back.

    Favorite Dish: None
