Ideal for first night in Auckland. Bright welcoming decor with very good atmosphere for a Tuesday night. Staff lovely and food very good. 100 dollars for shared squid starter (large portion - delicious) and a burrito each with A margarita each and a glass of wine. Cool place!

Invited by friends for a birthday dinner out. We attended on their "Friday Salsa" night where you can learn Spanish style dancing.

Great Mexican - unchanged for over 30 years! Why change something that is so good! The food and atmosphere are great. The service perhaps didn’t quite match the quality of the food but it didn’t worry us as it was about the food. The Happy Hour is between 5-7pm

I love Mexican food. Imagine my surprise when I checked in to the Sky City Hotel and looked across the street. Keeping it short and simple I went over, had a Dos Equis and some Quesadillas. Mmmm. Good service, the waiter had a non local accent so I asked him about it. He told me he was from France. I was surprised considering what I had heard about French service. So I told him I was surprised and we both had a good laugh. He understood and promised to make me a superb margarita if I had the time.

Disappointing. Slow service. Fajitas included only two tortillas. Had to wait 15 mins and pay for two more. Could have been much much better with only the smallest amount of effort.
