Mia Margarita is full of pastel pinks and blues, booth seating, neon crosses and cacti.
Margaritas are the central feature of the drinks list: there’s frozen versions as well as flavours like passionfruit, pineapple and mango. Mojitos, Palomas and sangria are also on offer. The food – all intended for sharing – leans Tex-Mex with the odd tweak; the oceanside location lends itself to an emphasis on seafood.
Dishes include seared tuna tostadas, chicken tacos and grilled corn, as well as a whole de-boned barramundi, meant to be flaked and placed into a tortilla with mango salsa. There’s also the “trash can taco” – a stack of nachos served in a can, with pulled pork, fresh avocado salsa and sour cream.
The lower level of Mia Margarita houses the taco and tequila bar, with more seating and booths found upstairs. A private dining area for up to 15 people is also available.
