We were staying in Mt Maunganui for a night and really wanted to have Mexican for dinner so we finally decided on this place after checking out reviews on tripadvisor. The place is really nice, very unique in its decor and got us excited. We waited a few minutes before being seated, not sure why since the restaurant wasn't full, finally sat down and we ordered some entrees, drinks and mains. I got a virgin pina colada and when it came and I tasted it I couldn't drink it because it was too sweet and over powering, I really didn't like it but I wasn't going to say anything until my husband told the waitress. She took my drink away then came back to say "my manager tried and said that's how it's supposed to taste" with an annoyed look on her face, she ended up swapping it for a mojito which I enjoyed a lot more. That waitress wasn't very pleasant the rest of the night and made us feel uncomfortable and unwelcome which we really didn't appreciate.
The food on the other hand was very very good, we had fried chicken with a chipotle mayo, my husband died for this entree and didn't want to eat anything else. Mains were fajitas and enchiladas, food was so generous and we couldn't even get through half our meals, it was very delicious and I would definitely return for the food even though service was lacking, maybe the girl was having a bad day. The manager on the other hand was actually very nice, we met him as we were checking out and he was very friendly and warm.
Can't wait till this place opens in Auckland!
