Located in central Jeffrey’s Bay, The Mexican is the result of a lifelong dream for owners Michelle and Warren. Actively supported by family members Naomi and Ken, The Mexican opened in November 2003 and has quickly developed as a popular restaurant for both locals and visitors alike. A year in Southern California developed Ken’s taste for Mexican food and for Michelle, eating Mexican food regularly during her time in Aussie convinced her to open her own restaurant in South Africa.
Located above Jeffrey’s Bay’s Country Feeling surf shop, the décor is decidedly Mexican with wall murals painted by well known local artist Steven Bibb. The cocktail bar also often doubles as the local golf club’s 19th hole with fellow members joining golfers Michelle and Warren back at the restaurant. An extensive range of cocktails includes the superb Blue Margherita and can be sampled on the deck whilst watching the day’s last waves roll in on J Bays famous Kitchen Windows beach.
Excellent service is augmented by a unique Mexican flag system. Each table has an orange and blue flag. Orange – help needed, Blue – We are OK. Popular dishes include Enchiladas, tortilla filled with re-fried beans & choice of chicken or veggies topped with sour cream & grilled cheese served on rice with sour cream and guacamole. Chicken or beef Fajitas, crispy Flautas and the infamous Chilli Con Carne are just a few of the other traditional Mexican dishes. The Mexican, however, is not limited to Mexican food and offers excellent seafood as well as steaks and grills with a choice of Adoba or BBQ basting.
