Went with my partner, got the beef quesadilla and vegetarian enchiladas - both were amazing! The staff were helpful and friendly. You also get the option of how spicy you want your food, which I haven't found to be common at Mexican places. Highly recommend!

Good food, lovely staff. Especially big windows make you feel you dine right in the middle of Auckland city.

This is an excellent small Mexican restaurant ideal for a quiet meal among friends. The food is great and the service is friendly. Just be careful about how hot you want your food. If you like it hot, you will get it hot.

Lovely food, great service and a nice atmosphere. My only complaints are that the food came out almost too fast, and the margaritas were a bit weak. However, the kids loved the nachos, my chicken enchiladas were amazing, and so were my husband's fajitas. Would...More
