I walked to Boquita from Marion street around 5:30 without a reservation. I had a great margarita and two tacos, one with a mushroom base and one with a butternut squash base, both very tasty! I was by myself, but reservations welcome.

Ate here this evening and the experience was faultless. Turned up tired after a busy week and asked for a selection of the chef’s own choosing. The food was awesome in terms of flavour, variety and quality. Great selection of drinks for all tastes, including...non alcoholic. The service was friendly, welcoming and timely. For us, these days, it is not just about the food. We can both cook well at home so it is the overall experience that is important. Tonights meal was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. This is a gem, possibly one of my best dining experiences, and we will be returning whenever we are in Wellington.More

Fantastic food, celebrating a birthday, wonderful service. Would have liked to have had menus at the tables tho, as was hard to keep track of what we were spending!!! Otherwise I highly recommend.

Fresh flavours, varied choice of delicious seasonal vegetables, pulses and whole grains wrapped in delicious soft tacos, all vegan, simply divine. The tofu, chocolate mousse finished the meal off nicely. Great, friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

Nice cosy restaurant. Friendly, helpful staff and delicious tacos. Very varied choice, we had 4 different tacos between the 2 of us and all were enjoyed.

A first visit to Boquita tonight. I am not gluten free, nor coeliac, which all the food is, but the food is outstanding. Yummmmmy! The prices are very reasonable too. I had two tacos, one the potato rosti, the other a taco with beans. A...side of cauliflower salad. It’s super delicious food, and we enjoyed chatting to the staff whist the food was prepared. The takeout containers are all compostable, even better, but a few tables to eat in, in the calm and quiet cafe. I’m very impressed that all the food is gluten free too, almost enough to turn a meat eater in to a vegan. I’ll be back!More

This is a small and cheerful Mexican place serving all plant-based food. The menu is small but I still had trouble choosing between all the delicious sounding options. There are also daily specials. This is a far cry from the usual tex mex smothered in...cheese that we tend to take for Mexican. Little cheese in sight, just great combinations of flavours and textures. Furnishings are basic, and the food is not fast, but it is truly delicious and prepared with passion. I’m adding it to my list of go-to spots when in Wellington!More

If you’re looking for great vegetarian food you won’t go wrong here. Fresh flavoursome tacos with great ingredients. If you want carne you could also try their bigger restaurant La Boca Loca

I would definitely recommend visiting Boquita if you're in Wellington and you need something tasty and vegan. Before going, double-check the restaurant opening hours as they are only open at specific hours. We decided to go Friday lunch-time. The staff were very friendly and talked...us though the menu and ingredients (it's always nice when they know what's inside the food and can also recommend great combinations). They have a good range of local drinks and everything was freshly made while we were there.More
