Waitress from Venezuela

We had seen other reviews on tripadvisor for Little Mexico, so we tried it. Good food. Our waitress was from Venezuela and we had a nice conversation during service. Auckland is very multi-cultural and we enjoyed the sidewalk seating. Reasonable prices.

Being from LA, I'm admittedly a bit hard to please when it comes to Mexican food. This unassuming little joint did a decent job and offered some really tasty, authentic dishes. But hold onto your sombreros, because it's gonna cost you! I was shocked at how much the margaritas (and they were just OK,) and food cost - it was... More

Read the reviews here so headed along. Food was good but not stand out. Nothing I haven't seen before for slightly higher prices.

The ingredients were fresh, the service was prompt and the chicken tostadas and vegetable enchiladas were delicious. Good casual option.

Myself, two ex work collegues and partners meet up for the first time in 15 yrs. As one couple were from out of town, we thought something different was in order, so Little Mexico won after checking Mexican in Auckland onTrip Advisor. What a great night, with awesome food and drinks. I am not an expert in Mexican, but I... More

So many choices and places to go in Auckland city. This one stands out from the crowd. From the moment you enter you feel welcome. The service from here on in is amazing. Prompt, helpful and friendly. The food is fresh, very delicious and plentiful to boot! I highly recommend a passion fruit margarita to accompany your meal. It's like... More

Authentic Mexican food and very generous portions. Also do great cocktails - particularly the frozen passion fruit margharita. Will definitely return to this hidden gem!

This was the first restaurant we ate in Auckland and must say we're not disappointed at all! The food was truly mexican, tasty and portion sizes were big. The staff was very friendly and even guided us on what to do and not to do in Auckland. We recommend it to everyone!

My wife and I (both in our 60's) looking at probably going to the steak restaurant next door came across Little Mexico Cantina and decided to try it. As soon as we walked in we received the best possible service you could ask for and got a choice of very comfortable tables. We decided to share a starter and a... More
