We were lucky enough to get a reservation here (call ahead!) and all three of our meals were out of this world! The flavors were perfect, the portions were just right, and the boys were so excited for the extra hot sauces they offered. The staff were super friendly and knowledgeable, and the chef checked in on us a few times. We had an absolutely lovely evening here and would go again if there were more time!

Found this little gem on Tripadvisor not on the usual row of eateries. We hadn't booked and they asked if we could return in an hour. So pleased we did. Lovely small place with great staff and incredible food. Best margaritas in New Zealand. I'd recommend to book. They are closed Monday and Tuesday.

This small place is always busy so it might be worth phoning ahead to book. I can see why it's so busy. The atmosphere is cosy and very latin. The upbeat tempo music really puts you in a good mood. The staff are polite , cheerful and know their jalapeños.
The Venezuelan cheese pastry is a starter to die for. Their hot sauces, made on site are delicious with them but the red one really has a big bite to it.
The mains are a good size and so delicious. The chimichanga, savour every bite. The chicken Pollo bahiano has an exquisite sauce and the quinoa pumpkin cake is melt in your mouth awesomeness, especially in that sauce.
The price is very reasonable. The food wonderful and the service fantastic. I can't wait to go back.

Welcoming atmosphere. Booking recommended (we are not used to having to book, but this was the third time around so we did).
