amazing night at Mexico. The staff were incredibly busy but gracious and friendly despite the pressure. They were wonderful.
The food blew us away! The esquites is divine and the fried chicken never leads you astray, we also each had a taco, the pork belly and churros. Wonderful food. We will return!

Wow! amazing food. Love their fusion styled Mexican food. Who would have thought Octopi and Chorizo would be such a good pairing?

Food was great and the wait staff were really friendly, I do feel however they may have been short staffed on the night we were dining as we did not see much of the wait staff at all - we had to call them over most of the time and the drinks were painfully slow to arrive. I have been to Mexico ellerslie a few times before without first table and not had this issue so feel it may be a one off however it would of been great if the server had just said 'I'm really sorry we are short staffed tonight so may be slow on drinks' because we ordered another round of drinks before dessert and we had finished eating dessert and they still hadn't arrived.. Had we known this we would of probably just not bothered to order more. Overall good meal though in terms of food and pricing, pork belly and tacos were definately the highlight

We had a great time at Mexico. Starting with some delicious margaritas, we ordered a variety of dishes. The spice in the patatas blew my socks of (in a good way) and the chicken quesadillas were out the gate. On top of that our server was a LOL and a half, great service. 10/10

We would go back! Its unusual for mum/dad to get a date night without 4 kids in tow. We really enjoyed the food - it was amazing and came out of the kitchen really fast. The service was probably some of the best - quick to attend, got the orders right, offered specials, cleared empty plates and most of all they were happy.

Great food and awesome vibe just like being in Mexico! Staff were super friendly but not bothering us all the time which was perfect. Super good deal if you go with first table! As otherwise it’s usually out of my price range!

we had to have a drink each-margarita and sangrira, but they were quite nice.
We shared the entree and the mains. soft tacos..crab, lamb, were both very yummy. We liked the fried chicken, too. It was an interesting experience and we can recommend this place.

Servers were very nice and attended to our table well. The food was cooked well and the meat was tender. The drinks were also good. Interior decoration is well done. Only real negative was that the prawn quesadilla lacked prawn and was full of lettuce. The chicken quesadilla on the other hand had a good amount of chicken.

The fried chicken is amazing. The cerviche was a bit fishy - fish wasn’t too fresh. But overall food was really good with nice friendly service
