About Mesa Verde
About the restaurant
Mesa Verde Melbourne CBD celebrate all that is fantastic about Mexican cuisine and culture. Located on the sixth floor – lift access available all night, just check in with the friendly security on the door – of Melbourne’s Curtin House on Swanston Street, Mesa Verde takes its name from a fictional town in the 1971 Sergio Leone movie ‘Duck, You Sucker’. This restaurant and bar has a bit of an obsession with agave and, as a result, you can expect to find endless tequila and mezcal options available. Plus, on the weekend things get even spicier with live dj sets into the wee hours. Open seven days a week, you are never too far from your next taco fix so prepare to indulge!
Eating Mexican food while enjoying some margaritas with friends has to be one of life’s greatest pleasures. So thankfully places like Mesa Verde Melbourne CBD exist where we can indulge, relax and let our hair down. Situated on Swanston Street, this Mexican restaurant and bar combines seasonal, locally-sourced Melbourne produce with traditional Mexican cooking techniques and flavours. The menu at Mesa Verde is varied and well designed for vegans, veggies and anyone on a gluten-free diet.
If you’re planning a trip to Mesa Verde in Melbourne CBD, we ask you to consider only inviting people who enjoy sharing their food. Once that’s been taken care of, cast your eye on the menu and choose from dishes such as freshly shucked oysters served with mezcal mignonette and coriander cress; chilaquiles with salsa verde, beans, cheese, sour cream, guacamole or some wallaby loin tartare with freekeh, horseradish, black garlic aioli and pepita wafers. And for the main event at Mesa Verde? Well that, my friends, depends what you’re in the mood for… You can’t really go wrong with some baja fish tacos, cabbage, burnt jalapeno crema and lime – or perhaps you’re more in the mood for crispy pork belly tacos with avocado, coriander and BBQ pineapple? No meal at this Melbourne eatery would be complete without a marg or three and a serve of their housemade corn flakes ice cream with salted corn cookie crumbs and cajeta. Book in advance, build up an appetite and we’ll see you at Mesa Verde!
