Mariachi Mexican Bar & Restaurant

Authentic Mexican Food by Karon Beach

NOTE: Mariachi Mexican Bar & Restaurant is now closed.

Mariachi Mexican Bar & Restaurant is an impressive reconstruction of a Central American cantina, from the décor to the concise menu of authentic fare. Located right on Karon Beach Road (Patak Road), it is connected to the Thavorn Palm Beach Resort and also benefits from the hotel’s five-star quality and relaxing sunset view.

The restaurant comes in two clear parts, with the bar to one side and the restaurant to the other. In between are the open kitchens and a casual seating area where guests can enjoy an aperitif on the comfortable sofas before their meal. The selection of margaritas – which use high quality tequila – are highly recommended for a very enjoyable and very Mexican experience.

The entire establishment is bright and colourful, with hand-painted murals depicting sunset scenes and sombrero-wearing senoritas. Yellows, reds and oranges are the dominant colours, even adorning the saloon-style doors at one entrance of the predominantly wall-less establishment.

Previous experience of Mexican cuisine is not required as the helpful staff will guide you through the menu, explaining exactly what each of the dishes is. These include Quesadillas (two flat soft tortillas filled with your choice of grilled steak, chicken and cheese, sliced up pizza-style) for 240 baht, Fajitas (beef, chicken, pork or shrimps, served with rice beans, guacamole and Pico de Gallo, along with some flour tortillas and a quick lesson in origami to enable you to wrap it all together) for 640 baht, and a traditional burrito (beef, pork, chicken or shrimps, and vegetables, pre-rolled in a single large flour tortilla) available in regular or king-size for 350 baht and 590 baht respectively.

The menu is relatively short, consisting of only a single page of salads, soups, appetisers, tacos and main courses. However, each dish is authentic to the Mexican recipes and uses excellent, high quality ingredients. The beef, in particular, is extremely tender and succulent. Watching it being prepared in the open kitchens is an additional bonus. The desserts are not listed on the main menu, but include fruit platters and ice cream.

Mariachi Mexican Bar & Restaurant maybe lacks the strolling band which is its namesake, but nonetheless provides a fun and colourful environment in which to enjoy the equally fun and colourful food. Also, its good range of Mexican appetisers and shaded interior (it is situated directly under the hotel’s Old Siam Thai Restaurant) makes it ideal for a beach-side snack.
