Miss Mexicana


Miss Mexicana is a stunning, split-level Mexican restaurant and bar in Wynnum offering authentic Mexican food and drinks.  

Nestled on Bay Terrace, Miss Mexicana takes over the spaces formerly occupied by Mr Hibachi and The Fat Duck; with a more formal restaurant upstairs and a less formal Mexican-style cantina downstairs.
