The Mex Restaurant & Bar

Known as much for a fun atmosphere as it is for the amazing food, the Mex is a cherished establishment amongst local diners. With a selection of Margaritas to die for and a reputation for the ‘Best Tex-Mex on the Bellarine Peninsula’, it’s not hard to see why.

Never been? Drop in and take a look. We’re sure you’ll be impressed with the vibrant restaurant, thrilled with the flirty cocktail bar and ready to laugh the night away in the fantastic beer garden.

Our restaurant meals are served from 5:00pm daily.

As well as the great open plan dining area, we have three dedicated spaces that can be booked for functions and special events.

Birthdays, cocktail parties, business events and intimate dinner functions can all be arranged. A variety of options are available depending on the size and type of your event.

We love to organise a good party.



Unofficially recognised as the best Tex-Mex on the Bellarine Peninsula, we offer cantina-style nachos, tacos, burritos and enchiladas.

And with the “Big and Hearty” approach of Tex-Mex, we also serve mouth-watering fajitas, spare ribs and eye fillet steaks (and lots more). Wash all this down with a margarita (fresh or frozen) or a corona and your night is made.

Meals are served from 5:00pm daily.



Come on down to our bar for a cocktail in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Feel free to grab stool at the bar, one of our high leaners or a table in the beer garden.

As every great drink deserves a quality bar snack as a sidekick, check out our bar menu section for your fill of nachos, tacos and much more. Pull up a stool and enjoy!

Opening Hours from 4.30pm daily.
