This was recommended to us by a tour guide on the intercity bus tour. They offer a $10 lunch menu with a reasonable amount of choice. This was very welcomed in Auckland where we found everything to be very expensive compared to other locations on the north island! Despite the reasonable pricing you are given a complimentary small bowl of... More

We've been here s few times. The food is cheap and tasty. This time we had 4 adults and a child. Total bill came to $200 including drinks. Food is cheap but drinks are standard The only issue is the service has gone backwards and it's really busy. You feel rushed and the staff can be rude. It also appears... More

If you are looking for a good meal and friendly environment i wouldnt recommend this place. We got there , there was no one in the reception area to greet us, just one of the staff sitting down entertained on her phone, after a bit we got offered a table, it was a nice location just across from the skytower...

Went to dinner with my boyfriend the other night. I had a house margarita and the enchiladas and both were fantastic. I especially loved the atmosphere of the restaurant, it was casual but a great date night spot. We sat on the outside patio and it was just perfect. Great service and great staff as well.

Have visited this resturant for several years when visiting Auckland. It used to be a cafe with a reputation for great mexican food at a great price. Found the food bland and the prices no longer as competitive as they used to be. Charged extra for a spoonful of sour cream. I wont be returning to it.

Average food - nothing that stood out. Quite generic and have had much better, more authentic at other restaurants. Worst part was that this was a surprise birthday for a friend. There were 11 of us. Once we realised how pathetically small the jugs of Magaritas and Sangria were (450ml for $24! and most of it was ice) we switched... More

The food is yummy although quite generic and has that 'chain' feeling to the menu. What really concerns me is what happened tonight. I was so shocked when I was sitting outside on the veranda and there was quite a chilly breeze. I asked one of the waitresses if should could please turn the heater on that was next to... More

The restaurant is located up a flight of stairs. They serve lunch specials up until 4 PM. I had the $10 taco salad which was good. My husband had the burrito - which he said had a kick to it. We ate outside and could see the jumpers come down from the tower.
