Everything was delicious! The fried chicken was amazing, I wanted to order more. Drinks were yum (especially the margaritas) and the wait staff were really polite, friendly and efficient. Will definitely be back again soon for some more tacos and fried chicken!

Mexico's a safe bet for good food and quick service. We enjoyed the variety of dishes to share and the pork burger was a hit with the 4 year old. I dare anyone to try go past the fried - We can't.

Atmosphere and food is amazing. You feel like your transported out of Auckland for a couple of hours. Highy recommend the fish taco, ceviche, and fried chicken. Black doris plum and cinnamon margarita is out of this world.

We made a reservation at Mexico via First Table for my husbands birthday. We had such a lovely dinner. From the ease of booking to being seated promptly with friendly service. The food was so delicious and the kids were kept entertained with the felts and paper which meant my husband and I could relax - Sangria in hand of course. 10/10

A great meal, as always! Mexico is still one of my favourite restaurants. This time I brought a friend who had been avoiding Mexican food for 20 years following a bad experience and she emailed me today to say "It was lovely!!! Like surprisingly really yummy, I’ll have to take my boys there and think I’m officially cured!"

It was a great experience. We liked a fit out it was good to see kind of Mexican style. A food was great we tried many different tacos. Also a churros was delicious. The bonus was on the day Sunday a kids eat free also during a school holiday as well.Recommend any one who likes a hot spice food..

Had a great dinner on a rainy day! Would highly recommend the chicken taco, al pastor wrap and fried chicken, even though it was hard to choose our top favourites! Would go back and try the Mucha Carne section. Thanks to First Table for making a date night affordable :)

Mexico is one of my FAVOURITE places to eat. I would recommend everybody try out any of the Mexico restaurants. The service is always quality, they offer the best drink options and the food is amazing! They do great fried chicken and their chicken tinga quesadilla is my go to! The music is at a perfect volume, it's not too loud where you have to yell to be heard. Great service, great mood, great food!

Mexico is a restaurant I have discovered in the last month... the food is simply stunning... The short beef rib is unbelievable... so tender and flavorsome... the meat just falls off the bone... The desserts are amazing... I never ever eat desserts and I ate 2 of them... such a pig!!!

I cant recommend this restaurant highly enough

Mexico food is always good. Staff was super friendly.

Staff went above and beyond even to Shazam a song for one of my friends which I thought so kind.

Always go with a bunch of friends and always establish that you will split the bill at the end that’s the best way to enjoy Mexico cause you can pick and choose a lot of options and it works out quite cheap instead of ordering individually.

Stayed all the way till closing.
Great for kids and adults.

Always amazing drinks and plenty of options non alcoholic or alcoholic.

Our experience at Mexico Ellerslie was fantastic! It was very busy on a Sunday, and the service was superb even though it was pretty full. The menu is always packed with variety of delicious items, it is hard to pick just a few things (you'll want it all). The coffee ribs were AMAZING. As was everything else we ordered. We all went home with satisfied taste buds and big smiles all round. Will return again soon. Cheers xx

Just fabulous Mexico, Ellerslie!!! Your menu is packed full of proper Mexico flavours and soooooo fresh. We loved the easy way to mix and combine from the meal, share and taste. Your staff were super. New the menu well were warm and friendly without intruding on our time together in your restaurant. And the restaurant!! Your interior is just fantastic, creates such an awesome vibe, right down to the table set up and decorations. Appreciate the attention to detail with candles already going, small sharing plates, and the range of chilli sauces. We will definitely be back!

Amazing new summer menu! Will definitely be back to try more of their summer menu :)
Avocado taco was hotter than expected, it had a 1 chilli rating but was definitely more than that.
Customer service was a tad slow despite the restaurant not being that busy!

Had a terrific lunch here, staff were so friendly and the kids we took had an awesome time. The Al Pastor wrap and beef taco were disappointing and had very hard bits of gristle and crackling in them, neither were eaten by us and one was taken off the bill. We were disappointed to learn that they had put pork crackling in beef taco and nothing mentioned on the menu (a big no-no if you don't eat pork for religious reasons). The churros and margaritas finished everything off perfectly! Overall a great meal and a nice day out.
