Hubby and I dined at Margos last night. Instantly loved the relaxed colourful vibe. We were shown to a cozy table in the corner by the lovely hostess. Our server who was a super friendly Swede explained the menu to us and gave us some recommendations. We went with them, and oh my what a delicious taste sensation on all the plates....washed down with a couple of superb margaritas!!! We had the Coconut Prawns, Tuna Ceviche and Pork Ribs...all a very decent size for sharing. 100% recommended Margos!!

First time to Margo’s and the atmosphere and food was good. When we booked they did say that the sitting time was 1.5 hours. However I feel this was unacceptable for what they pitch as high end mexican and certainly charge prices accordingly. Many other establishments have 2 hours and this is the first time I’ve come across a 1.5 hour sitting. We were ushered out whilst still had wine in our glasses!

Hi Keri,

We're really stoked to hear that you liked the atmosphere & food at Margo's!

We try and be as upfront as possible when it comes to any time limits on tables. We don't want there to be any surprises on the night and we try and highlight any booking conditions ahead of time so that guests have all the information needed to make a decision on whether or not to dine with us.

Ultimately, you were made aware and accepted the booking conditions of a 1.5hr sitting time. Our team did what they could to extend your time with us, however it was a very busy Friday night and your booking was made the morning of, so unfortunately there just wasn't much the team could do to help facilitate this. It can be really tricky on busy nights!

We do really appreciate the feedback though, and do understand that many other restaurants have 2hr sittings. Our priority is providing an energetic, fun and problem-free dining experience for our guests, so we definitely want to address your concerns! We've flagged this with the wider team to discuss sitting times and whether or not we do in fact need to look at extending them in the future.

If you're happy to give us a second chance, please email through hello@margos.co.nz and we can help with a booking and ensure you have enough time with us in restaurant!

With much love,
The Margo's fam x

Yet again, we were impressed with our delicious meals, all 4 of us. It wouldn't matter what we had, we would be satisfied. These meals are like nothing I've ever had before. I love the combination of flavours and textures. Even the the service from the waitress is very special.
