This restaurant is popular with families and certainly at weekends bookings are essential,. The menu includes a good selection of popular Mexican foods and flavours eg burritos, enchiladas,Fajitos, and of course tacos.Servins are generous and a children's menu is available.

Our group had never had Mexican food before, we thought it was delicious overall and we enjoyed it very much. One thing though was some the dips in the mixed platter needed some more seasoning, otherwise it was great.

I really liked the atmosphere of this place. I recommend getting a table near the windows upstairs for the people watching. I had probably the best chicken quesadilla I've ever eaten there; SO GOOD. Highly recommend.

I ate here with a group of friends. We sat downstairs. The place is a lot bigger than it seems from the street. Unfortunately my only complaint was that it was very hot downstairs and this was on a very cold night. Apart from that, we had a great time. I love this type of food (Mexican). Service was good...

Great food and service, plenty of options to keep everyone happy. In parts the tables are jammed in which was our only disappointment

Located corner Cuba and Vivian Streets heart of Wellington. Friendly prompt service. Good value meals. Steady flow of patrons but didn't need to book table for 2 people on a Saturday night. Enjoyed a selection of cocktails including Mexican mule and margueritas. Very enjoyable and would come here again when visiting Wellington.

We had dinner here. It was quite busy. The food was amazing. Service was fantastic. As it was busy the food was a little slow though. Only downside is that it is very loud in there.
