This place has got a really good menu and the food isnt that expensive. The quality of food is lovely and the lovely waitress who attended us helped us with the choice of food and drinks and was really attentive to customers. Would visit this place again.

Mexican in all means except for strength of salsa. Service was great. beautiful interior and authentic Mexican experience. Quesadilla can be better but Tacos and Seafood chowder were great.

Thankfully I'd ben warned about the slow service, so didn't set the bar too high!. When the food arrived though it was excellent, great flavours and very good value. Outside dining on pleasant evening made it enjoyable in the end. try the cocktails

We came here for a team lunch. They have a $10 lunch special. We all struggled to finish our meals. Chicken burritos were the most popular pick of the menu. This is what I had, and I really enjoyed it. It was a nice sunny day, so the doors to the balcony were open. There were a couple of other... More

We ordered fajitas and margaritas. The server put a small amount of chips and salsa on the table. We asked for another bowl of chips and the server told us we would have to pay for it! We then asked for more salsa and… you guessed it, another charge! My husband was pouring frozen margaritas from a jug and a... More

We were in Auckland overnight and just needed a quick meal. This place was good for that. Up some stairs to a cheerful Mexican decor. Margaritas on the rocks were a little expensive but good.

Had a group booking of 27 people. Staff a little flustered at first but after initial slow service all food and drinks arrived without mistake and we all enjoyed the meal.

Back in my goth days as an Auckland Uni student day the Mexican Cafe was a spike in the otherwise traditional family style richter scale of dining in late 80s Auckland. It was a place to bring a girl or to hang out with your other edgy, alternative friends with its frescoes and Tijuana ambiance, sipping sangria and trying your... More
