This is a family run pizza/Italian/Greek restaurant for take out and eat in. Friendly place with creative multi ethnic dishes. They started in Auckland and "retired" Whitianga - doubled in size to accomodate the demand in 3 years. Well done and good on ya!

Love Mexican? Visit El Camino! One of my favourite restaurants in Auckland, which I visited regularly. Make sure to book or you won't get a seat. Amazingly tasty food, great atmosphere & margaritas, and really good value - especially on Sundays with their $12 special.

We went on Sunday night with a group of 9 and everyone remarked how good the food was and that they would go back again! The Sunday special made this amazing value. Highly recommend.

I find it hard to find great mexican food, El Camino use more fresh beans and vegies than anywhere else I've been, yum! Great service, and one of the only places with 10/10 margaritas every time :)

After moving to Auckland from California last year good Mexican food has been missing in my diet. Just to be clear, this is not authentic Mexican to me. With that said, it was an EXCELLENT experience. The food was awesome, the Mojitos were fantastic, and...More

Really really good. Good staff. Good service. Good food. The way it should be. Very small restaurant so book first. If you can't get in here try Toro (2 doors up street) it's a bar owned by the same people with the same menu.

El Camino is so small they have no room for a coffee machine! But, it's ok because the food more than makes up for that. Top quality food at prices that won't burn a hole in your pocket. Make a reservation - a dozen people...More
