Exceptional communication and prompt responses. I'm coeliac so need to check before dining most places if they can cater for me and chef was quite knowledgeable, explaining each dish so I felt very resssured. Located upstairs of Elixir Bar you are taken on a very...authentic journey from the moment you arrive with chef being so attentive to attend each table and engage with his guests to share his own experiences and explain that he serves traditional food the way it should be! None of this tex mex stuff. Trust me it did not disappoint! It was fresh, hot and delicious and just what our daughter wanted for her birthday dinner. Perfect Mexican that left us extremely satisfied and full for the jext 2 days! 🌮🌶🌶🍍 Chef surprised us with a special traditional dessert made just for our daughter since she doesn't eat cake. Thank you Mr Jalapeno we were very impressed and look forward to seeing you again soon!More

Couldn’t recommend this place enough. The chef came out to our table and explained the menu and helped us order for our group of 7. The best Mexican food I have ever had! Service and food was an absolute 10/10. Do your self a favour...on your next visit to cairns!More

Visited Mr Jalapeño with my family. The food and service were AMAZING and the owner made us all feel very welcome. It is the best Mexican we have had in a long time and I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Dinner out with the family, we sat outside and enjoyed the warm weather. The food was awesome and it came out promptly. The very friendly owner came out to check on us and was keen to hear our feedback on the food. Staff were great...and would definitely go back again.More

Great live music and delicious food! We got the nachos plate, but can’t wait to come back to try other things in the menu. The meat was cooked perfectly and it was a great spot to share a plate and have a drink. We will...definitely be coming back !More

We LOVE this place... it's mini Mexico and our family LOVES IT!! - actually it reminds us of our favourite music bar in East Bali - which also happens to be music bar with awesome Mexican food... Anyways... at first the place doesn't scream family-friendly...or traditional Mexican... but between the rad vibes and music at Elixir and the delicious Mexican food - it's a night we all get totally in to!! We adore the chef and how he has made us feel safe with his food - as my wife needs gluten free as she's coeliac - and I just love flavour! The serves are great sizes... and the food traditional and tasty!! I got a sneak peak at a future dish served in a warm pineapple shell that I'm sure we'll order a lot of when it's on the menu. LoVE MR JALAPENO and ELIXIR MUSIC BAR!!!More

Most incredible Mexican I’ve ever had, maybe even the best meal I’ve ever had! If you’re in Cairns you have to come to Mr Jalapeño!! I could not recommend this place anymore. The owner is also so nice and made the experience 10 times better....Will definitely be back here again!More

Awesome authentic Mexican food with a traditional menu that caters for vegans/vegetarians as well as meat eaters. Great friendly atmosphere. Hosts live music some nights. Highly recommend for something different in Cairns.
