GREAT Place for cocktails, beer and snacks. why not try the Flautas De Pollo - are hand rolled crispy taquitos filled with pulled puajillo chicken topped with salsa ranchera, feta and coriander. These are fun cigar shaped taquitos are quite fun to eat. I've never seen this dish before so it was nice to try something different.

Ever since being shown this place, it has been a go-to before a night out. IT is such a great place to start, with their $5 sangria. The food itself is great, but you have to know what to order. Don't be sucked into the very overpriced guacomole and chips, this was definitely not worth it, the nachos and tacos however were much more deent in quality and price.

Calaveras is all about a fun and vibrant experience that takes alight and fresh approach on Mexican favourites. It's perfect for a relaxed drink and bite with friends. Great location right near Newtown train station on King St.

Located just steps away from a busy Newtown train station, Calaveras Mexican Cantina merges itself into the atmosphere of the suburb but at the same time has its individually unique charm attached to it. The restaurant has a slightly less prominent entrance with only stairs going up a level to where the magic happens.

Upstairs, the atmosphere was a little bit of an old-school with no visible signs of new decor, which is perhaps also its strong points to bring back that 'golden days' feeling of being in a Mexican restaurant in a desert somewhere.

The food offering was very exciting and the range was quite extensive too, including those that are very spicy to jump-start your appetite. Some of the dishes were delicious and deserve a second serving. The cocktails are also very exciting, beautifully made, and tasted nice. Overall, this place is a perfect spot for a casual big group catch-up.

The traditional fun food dishes and festive nature of CALAVERAS MEXICAN is what makes this venue so enjoyable. Whether it is families, friends, work colleagues or even yourself alone I can see you having fun at this place. The staff were happy, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient and it was an honour to dine in Gerardo’s passion venue. The walls are lined and made with love as is the food and OMG I love Beer-Garitas.
