I can see why this place is so popular ! The atmosphere is fun and friendly All the staff we interacted with were very sweet. The food was great with very gererous servings and can't forget the great Margaritas !

Our group had never had Mexican food before, we thought it was delicious overall and we enjoyed it very much. One thing though was some the dips in the mixed platter needed some more seasoning, otherwise it was great.

We had dinner here. It was quite busy. The food was amazing. Service was fantastic. As it was busy the food was a little slow though. Only downside is that it is very loud in there.

My partner and I stayed in Wellington 2 weeks ago. FBB was recommended by some friends of ours. We went there for drinks / cocktails before dinner and were very pleased. Would recommend the Mezcal Margarita!!
