23 East Essex Street, Temple Bar
Mexico to Rome blends Italian and Mexican cuisine with an intimate bistro-style atmosphere.
Mexico to Rome is housed in a quaint listed building in the heart of Temple Bar and there is a great Mediterranean vibe to this fun informal restaurant which offers the best of Italian and Mexican cuisine.
The staff are warm, friendly and enthusiastic; while hand-painted murals and cosy candlelit tables add to bistro-style atmosphere.
The varied, reasonably-priced menu is strong on pastas, fajitas and burritos and all dishes are well-prepared with generous portions. Start with the piatto freddo - cold Italian plate of salami, parma ham, feta cheese, olives and sundried tomatoes or the garlic prawns. Follow with the chicken burritos or Mexican steak topped with roasted fresh peppers in tomato sauce, potatoes of the day.
A good way to start your Temple Bar Trail.
