Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent service and top food! I've been here a few times over the years and I'm not sure if it's changed owners or what, but the food was the best it's been and same with service! There was a girls birthday there with a large...group of loud young woman, yet the staff still made sure to get everyone served and even apologised if they were a bit slow because of it when I paid (which was fine and is to be expected). Wil be going back more often I think.More

If you are looking for fresh Mexican food don’t come here. Most things are frozen and we walked out after entrees, didn’t even want to eat mains

Never have I ever waited so long for my food at a restaurant. I could have walked to rob roy’s and back twice over in the time it took to make my dessert. The wait staff were very apologetic, and the blond waitress took excellent...care of my table but quite frankly the kitchen needs to sort their $hit outMore

After travelling to Dunedin and checking in to our accommodation we found this place for dinner down the road. We thought yum Mexican! For the most part the meals were nice nothing spectacular, a few problems were had, the side salad was frozen. When a...member of our party ordered a chicken main they were met with a rather odd question “how would you like that cooked?” To which the answer was “I ordered chicken”, the waiter continued with “yes, medium rear?” Another member of our party spoke up and said “you do not have chicken anyway but cooked!”, the waiter was extremely confused so that put us on a back foot to really check our meals. On top of this the bar closed 15 minutes after we were seated at 9pm. We should have guess there were a few problems by how quiet this place was at 8.45pm on a Friday night.More

We were so looking forward to a great piece of Mexico, liked the look of the place, very cool. Ordered this and that, but so much of the food was clearly not fresh. Reheated pork might not kill you but it was dry and just...rather nasty. The salad was very obviously 24+ hours old and when we returned it, the replacement was just as stale and wilted. Offered 15% discount when we complained for a second time but turned out this was just for the meal concerned, a $3.50 reduction off $90. Very disappointing.More

Food ok, service slow and the worst part was the decor. So unloved. The toilets were a shocker. Only one was working . Pot plants all dead. Maybe some new blood is needed to bring the love back again !!

Service took a wee while and we waited 44 minutes for our food to arrive but overall was absolutely delicious, the polenta chicken tacos were delightful and were absolutely bursting with flavour and spices.

Great Mexican cuisine, exactly what we were after. Highly recommend the steak fajitas. The themed interior added to the experience. Nice friendly service.

If your wanting to go somewhere with below average service this is the place to go! After a night that felt like nothing but a mess already due to service that we had from the moment we entered, we then left overcharged and pretty unsatisfied....When we tried to fix the mistake we were then met with attitude, and made to feel like the mistake was our own? What a way to end the night. also $18 for a lemon lime bitters and vodka? should’ve just ordered a jug of that watered down margherita for less. The food was good but the service you receive for the food is 100% not worth it. Will definitely not be returning and do not recommend, should’ve just gone to alley cantina.More

We are on holiday in Dunedin and saw this place last night and decided to check it out today. Walked in at peak time and the restaurant was near empty with 2 tables out of 30 taken. We asked to sit up the top and...were told we can't as we are only 2?? We were then told some of the top tables were reserved but no reserved signs on the table. We just walked out. Waste of time and lost our appetite after this very average service.More

If you want a few drinks before watching a movie Del Sol is perfect. The passionfruit mojito is so refreshing and friendly service. Have been many times before and the food is great especially the sizzling fajita platter

Great Mexican food with cracking pork belly tacos. The pulled pork nachos were mammoth and could easily feed two. Great atmosphere and drinks. Friendly staff and a reasonable price. A Family friendly place to dine.
