About Los Amates Mexican Kitchen

Established in 2004, Los Amates Mexican Kitchen on Johnston Street has become a fixture in Melbourne’s Latin American dining scene. Unlike many of the Tex-Mex eateries throughout the city claiming to serve authentic Mexican cuisine, Los Amates is the real deal. Recognising that the culture and cuisine of a country as large as Mexico is far from uniform, the folks behind this Fitzroy restaurant aim to showcase a selection of the very best dishes, with specialities picked from throughout the country.

Great food, everything was delicious and came with decent sized portions. Food was a resonable price but drinks were really expensive. Staff were really great

Friendly, informative, great service and most importantly GREAT FOOD! Not your standard tex mex place, the food here feels authentic. We had a brief Tequila tour at the end of our meal too, well worth it.

We had a very pleasant evening at this restaurant. The staff was very friendly and we didn't have to wait a lot for the food. And most important, the food was delicious. Will definitely come back soon.
