The premises are colourful and adequately heated, which is essential in Dunedin's winter, and the huge greenhouse-style skylight and interior detailing and colour make the environment very pleasant, but it can be a bit echoing if there are large groups.

We had a lovely fun night here. The food was good, service great and it was a visually really beautiful restaurant. We enjoyed wearing sombrero's and looking at all the 'day of the dead' artwork and paintings 😍🌹

Loved my plum Margarita and lots of other flavours to choose from. Food was expensive for Mexican and average. Friendly service was a plus.
