Thankfully Dos Amigos runs against the mantra that you cant find a decent feed in Mission Bay.

We have frequented several mexican joints in the past 12 months, the reputable ones in the city as well as the uber popular pop up franchise in the central suburbs, and Dos Amigos is easily on par with them all.

We were in a hurry and made the attentive staff aware of this on arrival. And as promised they delivered the drinks and meal promptly.

The servings were generous, the flavours simple and fused well, and the sangria had us wishing we didn't have tickets to the cinema next door.

Looking forward to get back there, settling into one of the outdoor tables and watching the world go by.

Well done Dos Amigos, am sure it will be popular.

We usually dine in the city and not get out to the suburbs that often. So was impressed when on visiting Mission bay we enjoyed a great meal at Dos Amigos. The owner has recently visited Mexico to get new ideas and check in on the lastest trends (apparently serious Tequila tasting) so a good list in cocktails and Mexican beers. Didn't try starters but were impressed with both the quantity and quality of the main dishes - and good value at about $22 each compared with some of the higher prices charged for the same dishes at other Mexican styled restaurants in more central Auckland.

Plus plenty of staff on the day ensured we were well looked after and to get top ups of water and more cold beer. Thanks Team....will be back

Dos Amigos was perfection.My partner and I cycled to Mission Bay and had to stop to eat there.We propped our bikes up outside which wasn't an issue.The food was great..the best quesadila I have had...and we have been to El Paso and Mexico! The staff were excellent.I think we were served by an owner and he really knows what customer service is...and should be!He recommended a margarita which my partner had and I had the tecate. The only thing missing from that was a wedge of lime.Highly recommend this restaurant.Authentic food and excellent service...what else could you ask for?AAA+++

My partner and I stumbled across Dos Amigos Cantina whilst wandering around. We timed it right to be in before 4pm to be able to take advantage of their awesome early deals! We shared the beef nacho's and we we're very impressed. We expected mince but were surprised with pulled beef which was beyond delicious. The homemade corn chips, salsa and guacamole just topped it all off. I have already recommended the place to my friends and will definitely be returning in the near future.

Dos Amigos is the best mexican restaurant in Auckland. I live too far away to visit as often as I'd like but every time the experience has been great. The first time I experienced the place was in the summer & I wanted to eat on the beach. I walked passed & a staff member was outside in the sun with the lizards on his shoulder(i'm presumming it was the owner). I explained that I felt like eating (something healthy than fish & chips) on the beach & he said they were trying out wraps for a lunch menu & the Chef made me up two to takeaway. I've been to Dos Amigos several times since & its always the same great food, great service & great atmosphere.

Had a great lunch at Dos Amigos this past weekend. The prices are decent, especially for Mission Bay, and the food portions are generous. We really enjoyed the quasedillas and chilli con carne, the tank with bearded lizards and bilingual staff really added to the authentic Mexican experience.
