This is a fun little Mexican restaurant with wonderful food and good service. Sitting in this restaurant you feel like you have landed in Mexico. We found this place after searching for something other than fast food outlets which tend to dominate the area. The good: - The food and presentation was excellent. - the fit out is nicely themed...

I've been here four times over the last 3 years, (I've only visited Auckland twice), so this last visit 3 times over a two week period. Always received a friendly welcome, choose your night and there are Mexican style musicians and singers. Always a great atmosphere, and service is good. Many choices to have, and having been a few times... More

The atmosphere felt very Latin American, they did a great job at reproducing that atmosphere. The menu is quite extensive and the food comes in huge portions of pure Mexican goodness!

I found this restaurant by the recommendation of the the hotel staff. I live in Southern California and have owned property in Mexico so I enjoy real Mexican food - the quality of the food and beverage menu is very authentic. cozy, quaint, and affordable.

Food was the best I have ever tasted. It's a small place if you like less noise than some of the larger establishments.... then it's for you. The place has an authenic character and very friendly staff. Next time I am in Auckland I will be going here again.

This is a very interesting place near SkyCity, with a good range of authentic food and drinks. Lots of variety in cocktails, and huge portions. The wait staff are friendly and we had the added bonus of being accompanied by a Latino band. Very enjoyable evening.

The service is good and the sangria nice, but otherwise there is nothing to enthus about. Maybe it was an error to choose mild over spicy enchiladas, but I did not expect mild to mean tasteless. The accompanying beans were watery and there is no dessert offerings. If not for the sangria my taste buds could have had the night... More
