Over the last twenty years I've travelled all around NZ. Whenever I see a "Mexican" food restaurant I am impelled to try it. Usually, I never return. This one is different because this one is good. Really good! As I crunched into my taquito I wiped away a tear of joy. The mexican rice actually tasted like mexican rice. The... More

The first thing I noticed was that they didn't have a liquor licence. My sister and I were the first diners there, but were stuck sitting in the less decorated area of the restaurant than people who came in after us. The waitress had a lot of trouble putting together a sentence, they didn't have any fish for the taco... More

Tonight I dined here with three others for my birthday. We were welcomed on arrival and seated. The first server was very friendly moved the heater closer which was appreciated. The first disappointment of the evening was when we were told that the restaurant did not have a liquor licence at the moment, there goes my birthday marquerita. Servers were... More

My partner and I were craving Mexican so made the journey out from Wellington to Lower Hutt. We weren't disappointed. We were warmly greeted on arrival and shown to our table. Our waitress advised us that a large group had just arrived and recommended we order reasonably quickly so we didn't have to wait. There was so much to choose... More

Great find in Lower Hutt City. The street it is on is a strange location, but it seems to work somehow. Really helpful, friendly staff. 2 for one drinks special for May was a brilliant special they had on when we dined there. Lovely Margaritas. Recommend the Lime and Feijoa flavours. A bit odd that the only beer on the... More

The staff at Las Margaritas are really friendly. One of our waiters through obviously English wasn't his first language and he messed up our order, we both ordered the same main dish and my friend said I'll have the same as her and so only ended up with one and then had to wait for the second main to come...
