There is nothing about this place that I found negative. Yes, there was a bit of a wait, but we were taken around the back to a converted loading dock where they had set up a bar and brought free nachos. Delicious. The waiting staff was outstanding and loved the decor. But best of all was the food. Normally I am not huge on Mexican as I am not a fan of spicy food, but I have been introduced to some of the most delicious flavours and can't wait to go back.
If you are looking for a relaxing night out, this is not the place for you. It is noisy and crowded and heaps of fun. I loved the restaurant, the food and he atmosphere and am already planning to go back.
We walked in and wondered if we had to sit ourselves.We were eventually shown a table and that was it! We had to wait about 10 minutes for a waitress to take our drinks order...and then she vanished! We had to wait 15 minutes for her to come back with the drinks and then she vanished again! We were about to walk out when she came back and said sorry for the wait and shrugged her shoulders like she didnt really care.We decided to give the place another chance and the food turned up very fast.A guy with dark curly hair took over and he really got things moving.We ordered another drink each and this time they were there in under a minute!They had a lot of staff working but our waitress went awol more often than not and didnt really seem to care.The place is crowded and dimly lit and the portions are small.You share longish tables with strangers.The homemade corn chips tasted like they had been made a few days ago as they tasted quite stale.My quesadilla had a lot of flavour but wasnt filling.Its more of a lunch place or somewhere to have drinks and snacks as you will leave there hungry...and not impressed with the staffs attitude either!
Made my first visit to Mexico on a Friday night - we had to wait one and a half hours for table, but I had been warned about that so went to a bar for drinks with some friends as planned. The staff at Mexico text when your table is ready, so that worked out fine. The atmosphere once is you;re in is great. It's loud and lively - not the place for a quiet dinner, but for a bit of fun and tasty food and drinks with your mates. We tried the pork tacos, the ceviche (delicious), quesadillas, crispy chicken wings (spicy!) and corn chips (fresh and crisp). The churros we had for dessert were great, the only thing I didn't like was that the chocolate sauce has chilli in it. This is not mentioned on the menu and I'm not a fan of chilli chocolate. Margaritas were great - I'll definitely go back and now that they have opened in Taka it's even closer for me.
Great atmosphere and service, although the tables and chairs are way to close together so you are practically knocking elbows with other diners. Really rowdy too so don't expect a peaceful meal. The food was very good - especially the pork soft shell tacos. Don't bother with the churros. Would go again.
Work has just recently located to the Britomart area and although I'm still grumbling about the cost of parking, I can't complain about the restaurants and bars that I now have quick access to.
Been here 5 weeks or so and already have been to Mexico three times (twice for lunch, once for dinner). Love the quesadillas especially when combined with the chunky guacamole and a few cold ones on a Friday lunch top off the ideal finish to the working week. Mexico does get busy but there's a pretty quick turnaround so don't worry if it looks too packed.
Very overrated! We tried on several occassions to get a table at Mexico and every week we were told there was a 45min wait. This is usually a good sign. When we decided to wait for a table we were put on a bench looking at the wall which was nice as we could sit and order a sangria and nibbles. However staff then decided this would be our mains table and it was only after an hour of waiting for a normal table when i objected to other people getting seated before us, we were reseated. It took a further 20mins to order. Mexico is chaos!! When the food came, it was distinctly average. Wouldnt go again.
Food was okay but servings at Mexico were insultingly TINY and we had to wait over 40 mins after ordering for even our entrees to arrive. Staff were offhand, and inside is way way way too crowded. Cocktails were average. Overall, the mexican cafe is WAY better and WAY better value for money. If I never went back to Mexico it wouldn't bother me at all. Don't believe the hype!!!
This place is so cool...it has a great hussle and bussle about it. perfect for small groups wanting to have a bit of fun..... Even though i am not a fan of Margaritas I really like theres. Mexico is well worth a visit.
