What can I say - I don't want to raise your hopes or down your dreams either. It's an inconsistent restaurant - service can be great or really bad, food can be exciting or limited and certainly depends on your taste buds. My husband can't get it hot enough and I don't like much more than mild - we are... More

This restaurant was very nice, and the added bonus was the friendly helpful staff. The food was in small portions like a Mexican tapas. But each dish was packed with lovely flavors. The only negative to the place is that they do not have a baby changing facility.

Nice atmosphere great place for a catch up and some drinks. Awesome fit out and good service. They have a wide selection of homemade hot sauces which is great. Good margaritas!

Trendy hipster place. I do not care for the Mexican fusion food AT ALL. It is overpriced and the whole day of the dead theme is over the top

Had the Mexico Set Menu. Food was excellent and very tasty. Prawn Soft Shell Tacos were fantastic along with the spicy Mushroom dish. Food came to the tables consistently so there was very little waiting for the next course. Mexico accommodated our large group well and the only downside was farewelling students that were graduating. Well done Mexico!

Fried chicken...can't say much more than that! It's what they are known for and I can understand why. Food is always beautifully presented and tasty. Love that they always changing their menu. I love too that you can get a variety of small dishes - makes it much more interesting than just one big main meal. The beers are good... More

My first trip to Mexico was with my wife to meet up with another couple that were moving out of Auckland. We wanted a restaurant that had a relaxed and casual environment where we could simply unwind and enjoy each other's company before our friends left Auckland. We were really pleased that we chose Mexico as the tapas style menu... More

When my friends and I meet up for food, Mexico is always suggested! They serve fresh, spicy and flavourful tapas. The menu changes seasonally so there's always something new to try. Their tacos are my favourite, mouthwatering with interesting flavour combinations! The black plum margarita with cinnamon is by far the best cocktail I've ever had, make sure you get... More

Restaurant setting is fantastic however we found the food to be a bit bland and the portions to be small. Items were quite pricey. Will not return in a hurry.
