Aree Bah! Mexican Restaurant

Home > Melbourne > Dinner | Restaurants
Published December 25th 2014
Courtyard comforts
A refreshing Mexican restaurant with excellent service and a killer location, Aree Bah is a versatile enough to become the family's favourite restaurant or a trendy place to meet up for margaritas and snacks.

The menu is straightforward enough, consisting of Mexican-inspired dishes attuned to Australian tastes. The fare is not too different to that of Taco Bill, although Aree Bah is slightly cheaper. They boast plenty of gluten-free options. We just wanted some snacks for sharing, and despite being spoilt for choice, tended towards nachos.

The nachos were fairly standard, with hefty helpings of sour cream, guacamole and tomato salsa (we requested no jalapenos). The salsa was not spicy at all.

We also ordered miniature hard shell tacos. Filled with chicken, lettuce, a touch of sauce and a sprinkling of cheese, they tasted fresh but were incredibly difficult to eat owing to the overly crumbly shells.

There is cosy indoor seating, as well as outdoor seating in an enclosed courtyard. Both indoor and outdoor areas are creatively decorated with paintings.

Service was excellent. There seemed to be only one person working- hopefully there were more hiding in the kitchen. He came out to the courtyard every now and then to check we were happy with our food, but not often enough to be annoying. Our food was brought out exceptionally quickly.

If you are seeking authentic Mexican dishes with a kick, this is not the place for you. But for food that is easy to share and even easier to eat, Aree Bah is a winner.
