Came here on recommendation as I wanted to find out what the Mexican restaurants in Auckland are like. Started off with guacamole (a bit pricey at $12, there were 3 of us and there was maybe enough for 1 person), and a hibiscus/pomegranate margarita. The...More

From the outside the place appears to be just another brick building with a sign. Once you are inside, the walls have character and charm, reminding me of the film,”Coco “. I asked the good-looking server (a boxer in training) to suggest something on the...More
