“Best mexican in Auckland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

Went recently with my husband and were excited to hear that the waitress and staff, along with two tables of diners, were all speaking Spanish.
Service was great and it was the best mexican food we've had since we were in Mexico. Can't wait to get back!

“Good food & service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013 via mobile

Food was good, standard Mexican stuff with quite a few specials. Service was good too. The decor could have been better. The prices are very reasonable.

“Friendly Staff, Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

Went there recently with a crowd of ex-colleagues. one of who is Mexican and another who has lived in Mexico. Found the food very fresh and tasty. Especially enjoyed the corn tortillas. The staff were extremely helpful in assisting us in our choice of food. The prawn dish was quite delicious. Great atmosphere, with Mexican music to set the scene and prices which were very reasonable. We went on a Friday night, and were disappointed that it was not more crowded, as that would have added to the atmosphere. Some come on Auckland, we do not have an abundance of good Mexican eateries out there. Use it or lose it!

“Just Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

This was ok. I had to send my cocktail back as it lacked two of the three ingredients it was supposed to have and the substitutions were terrible. The food was mediocre, uninspiring and the presentation was lacking in colour. There needs to be salad or veg served with the mains and included in the price and the flavours of the food need to be expanded - cumin cilantro cayenne etc. More colourful serveware would be great too - pottery jugs and plates with a Spanish theme would be nice. The table just looks bland. I won't be back. The price for four people was good.

“Authentic Mexican Grill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

Authentic Mexican grill, new to the Auckland scene, owned & operated by a young Mexican who is passionate about making this a real success. Expect good tasting Authentic Mexican rather than the bland tex-mex found elsewhere.
