With several popular venues around Sydney, the authentic, Guadalajara-style Mexican food of Dos Senoritas is no secret among those in the know. That’s particularly true of their Crows Nest outlet, which is right in the heart of the restaurant and bar throng around Willoughby Road and Falcon Street. Its location alone would make Dos Senoritas busy (advance bookings are strongly advised, by the way), but so too would the delicious spread of properly done Mexican fare, from taquitos to churros, tamales to tequila slammers!
Sydney’s Mexican scene is crowded. There are new-age hipster joints that prioritise decor and marketing. There are old-school hangovers from the days when serving avocado was enough to be exotic. And there are American Tex-Mex places where a sloppy burrito is judged by size rather than taste. Dos Senoritas help you filter through all those to the real deal. This Falcon Street favourite relies on traditional Mexican recipes (and some specialist spices brought in from across the Pacific) and quality Australian ingredients to offer up something unique in Crows Nest.
The two towering giants of Mexican food in Sydney of course make an appearance at Dos Senoritas – though their tacos are more like what you’ll find in Mexico and the range of burritos is much more creative than any other Mexican joint in Crows Nest (the aptly named Supercheeseygooeychimichanga should speak for itself). You’ll also unearth rarer gems here on Falcon Street like a secret-recipe pork crock pot, fresh seafood enchiladas and an awesome house specialty of chicken breast cooked in mole oaxaca (dark chocolate sauce). Dos Senoritas have a great range of Mexican beers and refreshing cocktails, and remember to leave room for churros!
Always great food, service, sangria. The Mole Oaxaca is awesome.
Delicious Mexican food with quick service and friendly staff. Definitely one of the best Mexican restaurants I've tried so far in Sydney. The spicy prawn cocktail dish as well as the tamales were great.
Casual decor, great food. The portion sizes are HUGE, but all our dishes and margaritas were simply delicious. Will definitely return to this restaurant for our Mexican.
Authentic Mexican cuisine. Food is very tasty and wholesome. Huge portion sizes. Restaurant has a vibrant and interesting atmosphere. Burritos and tacos are highly recommended!
Food was great and drinks were tasty. I got the taco combo plate and mohito which I would recommend to anyone considering this on their menu. Service was below average however - waitresses were on their phones and looked really bored at times and overall weren't as attentive to our table as other places (e.g. Not serving fresh refills of water as needed, not asking if we would like dessert etc). Music would also stop and start in the background so atmosphere was not consistent. Other than that it was a good place overall and I would come back for the food and drinks with my friends again.
We were looking for a Mexican restaurant and compared the various Crows Nest establishments on line before choosing Dos Senoritas. It was a good choice. We enjoyed great food and plenty of it and service was excellent. Very friendly and quick even though the restaurant was reasonably busy and there were a lot of takeaways going out. Would eat here again when we are in the area.
Great authentic Mexican with friendly and very fast service. Yes, we should have split an order as the portions are huge (by Australian standards- pretty normal for Californian Mexican restaurants- my only expertise) but the really yummy margaritas make it all possible! My only disappointment is with the pre dinner chips and salsa- chips a bit on heavy side- could be crunchier...but still nice gesture- advise not to indulge too much- remember what is to come!!
Coming from Los Angeles, I've been on the hunt for good Mexican food. The search is finally over! Dos Señoritas is soooo good and definitely the closet to home that I've found here in Sydney. The owner is really nice, and service was great as well. So glad I've moved to Waverton and this gem is so close! I'm already craving taquitos and margaritas just writing this.....
The food was good, but when my friend requested a meal with no cheese, it came back twice with cheese and they tried to clear everyone's plates before she had a chance to eat her meal that finally arrived with no cheese. When it did arrive with no cheese, 2 out of the 3 taco fillings were not what she had ordered, but she was too shy to point out yet another mistake with her meal.
Closest in terms of taste authenticiity to Tex-Mex flavour. None other in Sydney can come close especially those who run Mexican restaurants but the cooks are NOT Mexican (and just because these restaurants cooks are from South or Central America or Spain doesn't mean they know how to cook and prepare Me I am dishes).
