Top food, nice staff and good mexican food. Had nachos, very big portion. Could not eat it all, too much. Margaritas and mojitos were lovely.

Nice food and a good setting watching the world go by. I've eaten here before on my last trip to Auckland so had to go there again. I love the food.

Love this place, been visiting for years now. José is lovely and so are the waitresses. Delicious food and decent prices. Intimate atmosphere but can also cater for small groups.

One of the best meals we had during our trip to New Zealand. Friendly, efficient service and very tasty, piping hot food. We would certainly visit Little Mexico again.

The food is pretty good and the wait staff are pleasant enough but the mops in the rather forlorn unisex toilet and the sad toilet seat give away that this place is just a bit under par. The beer and wine list is very short. Only offering mexican beer is also a bit of shortcoming in NZ. With hot competition... More

Were huge fans of Mexican & Tex Mex & California Mexican. This was a little different. It was NZ Mexican, lots of flavor & spices. Dinner portions were big but no rice & beans came with the meal.

The best Mexican food I've had in a long long time. I had Enfrioladas that were stunningly good. Just the right size and so yummy. I can't wait to return.

I thought this was expensive and overrated for chicken enchiladas. The 'mole' sauce seemed more of a tomato sauce than a chile sauce. Won't be visiting on my return to Auckland.
