Lovely place, great to share and taste a lot of different type of food. Really enjoyed the time we spent there. Everything we were ordering arrived fresh on nice plates, super tasty and authentic. Staff friendly and professional. Prices are ok for the quality, recommended!

We didn’t like the food and we believe they should improve their menu and the service. If you are looking for a good priced and tasty Mexican food , you will probably be disappointed . Probably ok for a drink

In short the wait staff were so rude and unhelpful, they couldn't be bothered asking the kitchen about my questions regarding the menu so I won't be back. Thought the food was fairly average as well.

I loved the tacos, the cocktails are great in taste and look. Service was too fast and they couldn't manage to give us the drinks first!! Friendly staff and good location, i liked it and will go there again :)

The food here is always pretty good. Quick, easy and yummy food. It just feels like the wait staff are a little all over the place and you feel like you are being pushed in and out the door as fast as possible

Having eaten at a number of Mexico restaurants around New Zealand (and enjoyed all of them) very disappointing to come to one with disinterested or stroppy staff. Food was okay but served with a side of snide, it’s not so enjoyable. With plenty of other...More

They have the best fried chicken ever! Not that spicy, well crumbed and deep fried. I recommend the traditional margarita to go with it. The menu changes from time to time, so you will always be able to try something new and exciting! They have...More
