Cisco’s Restaurante Mexicano
Cisco’s Restaurante Mexicano commenced operations at its current Kingston location in November 2015, as a co-venture of former Pro-Basketballer Dave Nelson and newbie to the industry, Brett Adam. The menu is still based largely on that of Manuka’s Francisco’s Mexican Cantina previously operated for 10 years by Dave, along with partner Tina Cotta, until it closed the doors in early 2015. Two years on, and with Dave having stepped out of the industry, Brett’s aim is to continue to deliver a Mexican dining experience that is fun, friendly and affordable. The focus of the kitchen remains on consistently serving best food at a reasonable price, while Brett’s wife, Sue, helps out with home research for the delivery of new cocktails for the full bar. Very much a locally operated and owned small business, Cisco’s is somewhat unique in the Canberra Restaurant Industry, being one of the only places in town to offer a full table service Mexican dining experience.
