Love coming here when I'm in the Neighbourhood - their Margherita menu is awesome and they're always changing their food menu - the latest version has some really great options, including a healthier chicken, great if you're on a diet.
Mexico has made this area of Takapuna so much better. The restaurant is wonderful, the food is just delicious and the staff are super lovely. They get crazy busy so be there early otherwise you won't get a table. They often have different regional specialties which are usually a good pick if you're wondering.
Tequila and cocktails as well :)
Love this place! Amazing amazing food! Such a unique, energetic environment. The interior space itself looks amazing with the walls covered in classic Mexican imagery. Also love the cans of Mexican food and bottles of beer used as decoration. Very original! Get the fried chicken, it will change your life.
This restaurant has a real beachy atmosphere and it makes you feel like you should be wearing a sombrero with your kiwi jandals, and also still enjoy the energy of an inner city vibe. I really enjoy the cocktails; they are so refreshing and cheeky. The food is light, spicy and really enjoyable. They definitely cater for all palettes. The staff is friendly and the service is good. Definitely a place to catch up with colleagues’ and friends. Good for light lunches to avoid the heavy feeling when you need to return to the office. I love the evening ambience this restaurant has when you are drinking a margarita and watching the setting sun.
A great place to head out witrh friends for lunch or dinner. Expect to wait for a table for dinner most nights - but treat yourself to a cocktail from the bar while you wait. Fantastic fresh food, and a menu that doesn't disappoint.
