Really enjoyed my first time here and had wonderful food - shared plates so tried nearly everything on the menu among six friends - all the dishes were good. Seating is limited and you can't book so now I know why we met there at 5 pm before the rush. It was a Friday evening so was very busy with after work get togethers. There needs to be a number system for those waiting for places as when we got up from our table newcomers through the door rushed to our seat and those who had been waiting for a while were quite disgruntled - I was up at the till paying and heard the complaints. Not the most comfortable of restaurants when a crowd is in. Even though we were there early we had to sit on the hard stool as all the chairs were taken.

This has become a favourite for Miss 5. Ever since we went on "Date Night" with her best friend and his family. They shared the Ham & Cheese Quesadilla and the Nacho's. The Margarita's are spectacular, the Sangria is delicious - white or Red. My favourites are the Ceviche, the Chicken Flauta & the Pork Soft Shell Taco. There is cool space outside, and on these really warm, tropical evenings you just want to dine out there and chew the fat with friends.The prices are very reasonable & the staff are very friendly. Congratulations Nick, you deserve the successful business you have in Havelock North. People lining up waiting for space in a Restaurant is unheard of these days, so great job and all the best for the future.

We have visited on a number of occasions since Mamacita opened and we simply can't get enough of the tasty tapas and magical Margaritas. We are determined to try everything on the menu at least once! There is something here for all and the atmosphere is buzzing any day of the week.

We have dined here twice now with friends. Mamacita's staff are welcoming and friendly. Service is so fast. Food sooo delicious. Very reasonably priced. Remember it is a tapa's style menu so take your time ordering as you go. Margarita's are to die for! When patrons are lining up at the door waiting for the restaurant to open, you can tell its great place to visit. We will be back.
