Is there an idiom that means "we have a mutual understanding"? Or if there is not, is there an idiom that can be used to express a similar idea? I am pretty sure there are idioms or slangs that are often used to express such an idea.

The phrase "a meeting of minds" indicates that two (or more) peopole have readed an understanding, usually an agreement. Indeed this is the standard phrase in contract law when people have understood each other and reached an agreement.

They are on the same page.

Is significantly more informal, but generally means tha tthey have the same understanding of the subject.

I want to make sure that we are on the same page.

means "I want to be sure tht we fully understand each other and agree."

  • If two people agree completely about something, we can say they see (or are) "eye to eye" on that topic. May 1, 2019 at 9:40
