The staff are really friendly and helpful but I felt the food was pretty average and not great value for money. I love Mexican but the burrito was pretty bland and quite stodgy.

We took our 13 year old grandson out to celebrate his birthday - Flying Burrito was his choice, and it was a good one. We were ushered downstairs which is an enormous (and noisy) area, frequented by young folk, and happy locals out for a good time with good food. I chose a Chilli Pork Enchilada(on the wait persons advice)... More

Went for a meal, got seated downstairs and for the first time ever, left before an order was taken. I can't comment on the food as I didn't have any. The noise was rediculous. God thar makes me feel old saying that, but genuinely couldn't hear my partner sitting three feet away. Wouldn't go back at a weekend.

Enjoyable food but the price is expensive for the type of food and it took so long for them to serve the food.

We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, the dips were very tasty and the sangria was also very good. I would go back if I find myself in Wellington again. If you like Mexican/Spanish food you will like this restaurant, We sat on the lower level which is effectively underground and that added a bit of difference.

The all you can eat tacos was probably a slightly ambitious choice but good value. Tasty and I slept well that night!

I would probably call this eatery Texmex fast food in a good way. No pretense food, good and quick service. It can get pretty busy at lunch time!
