Food was average. Chicken quesadilla was flavourless. Wine out of a tumbler not acceptable. Wine list poor. We had an early sitting and yes we were aware we had to leave by 8.30pm but we were told no less than 5 times. Yes we understand....More

In Auckland for work and staying nearby, thought I'd try out Mexico. Glad I did, the food was GREAT! Had four small dishes and a beer for $48 and couldn't eat any more. Each dish was a surprise and would definitely head back.

This is our second time in Mexico Restaurant. First time was in Britomart - not so impressive. The tables are too close together. Ponsonby- nice decor. Very Friendly staff. Too pushy for up sales. Food? Too salty! Not an authentic Mexican Food!

Awesome decor. Awesome food. Stumbled across this place by accident. Good selection of NZ & Mexican beer. Ordered the bean & bacon dip, corn fritters and a few different tacos. No complaints.

I have eaten more Tex-Mex food than any other type of cuisine so I can confidently tell you that this is not anywhere near to what Tex-Mex should be. It seems they have taken some recipes they may have heard of and adulterated them into...More

Met up with another couple for what we hoped would be a great evening. Sadly 2 choices were brought out over 15 minutes apart and we had to repeatedly ask for our other 2 courses and beers. The food itself was not great. Quesadillas hard...More
