“Mexico Ponsonby Road”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Great atmosphere the hip new eating place on Ponsonby Road with stunning decor. Great for groups, not so much for couples. Food very well priced though servings are not huge. Service very attentive though at times it seems a bit haphazard but it all works well.

“Good value”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

Popped into Mexico Saturday lunch time - haven't been for a while but was pleasantly surprised as had forgotten what a good spot this is. The tapas are excellent - fresh food / tasty and at a very reasonable price. Managed to get a bench seat by the window so could watch the world go by whist whiling away a couple of hours. Great sangria ! Good selection of beers! Mexico is back on our to go list!

“Unbelievable value”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

The food was pretty good, but the value was outstanding. A lot of Aucklanders rave about this restaurant so perhaps my expectation of the food was too high! I'd certainly go there again.

“Great food and prices”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

If you manage to get a seat - the food at Mexico is great. Good portion sizes (except for the fried chicken which is rather mean, but delicious), good prices, with average service.

“Muy bueno!”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Had lunch break with some colleagues. Quick service and nice waiters. Excellent quesadillas and good value for money. Will go back for sure maybe for a good night out and to try their cocktails!
