“Consistantly Good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

The food here is great. So is the value. It was our second visit, for a late lunch. I will be back. However I was irked by a waitress asking us to move from a bar leaner if we wanted lunch, as only snacks were served there. This was dumb. The restaurant was empty.

“Just love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

We stumbled across Mexico by chance and NOW it is a our favourite fun restaurant. We have gone to Mexico with several groups now, inclusive recently of an 82 year old man and everyone has loved the atmosphere(we are not elderly). There may be a wait but that is because it is so popular but well worth the wait and hey...they have a back bar with a chap who makes the best Margaritas in the world...well Auckland anyway in my opinion.

I hope they keep the standards up as this restaurant is just great in our opinion. :)

“Great food for sharing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Loved the vibe and the quality of the dishes. The "Mexicos fried chicken" is really good. My favorite dish was the wild mushroom, fennel & marjoram, sour cream and toasted pinenut taco. Next best was the cumin and anise blackened chicken w avocado & mint taco.
It's a noisy, busy, fast place but it has real character. Go there even just to try it.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Tasty tasty Mexican fare! better than we had in mexico. Portions are small - tapas style but this gives you the opp to try more. The specials were great & we loved the crispy potoes and dip! The decor inside is very funky - well worth a visit!

“Great with friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Mexico's style is basically Mexican tapas. Great for sharing and trying lots of different dishes. The food is really tasty and it's spicy when it says it is!

The service is great and the food arrives really quickly. One of the waiters came over to check whether we had received one of our dishes (we hadn't even noticed that it hadn't arrived) and when we said no it turned up in minutes.

The atmosphere is vibrant and the décor interesting too. You can end up sharing a table, which can be a little cosy and it's sometimes quite noisy, but that all adds to the charm of the place.

Highly recommended with friends.
