I'm a big fan of the foot long tacos. Service is lovely, they are tucked away in the back of elliot stables but there is plenty of room and the food is relatively well priced. They occasionally do extra specials. I had a set menu here for restaurant month which was delicious.
Truly a scintillating experience of feeling like you're sat in a charming hacienda in the heart of Mexico with your senses being treated to sounds and sights of gusto hispanico. The anticipation of tasting just from reading through the menu which read like a Lonely Planet guide through the gourmet delights on offer from every corner of South & Central Latin America, was overwhelming. I loved the Arepas with the Panamanian Style fish and the Coconut Rice Pudding made me reminisce of When Harry Met Sally!
Food was average at best, and quite greasy. Seemed like the ingredients were pretty cheap, the guacamole not fresh, but rather from a packet. Service seemed like they gladly could be somewhere else. This is my second encounter with this place, and will be the last.
Great to see Latino flavours coming to the fore in Auckland. Friendly Latin American staff who are great to practice fledging Spanish with and an array of delicious South American food. Some great art as well by Argentinean artist Juano Dellair. Thanks to owners Cecila and Luis for awesome dining!
