Reviews

We arrived at Mamacita's after a very long drive and were warmly welcomed by the friendly wait staff. We were seated at a comfortable table and the service was timely, friendly and efficient. As we had not been here before our waitress talked through the menu and the service at Mamacita's. Unfortunately there was no tap beer available but the other drinks on offer were plentiful. The virgin margarita was particularly good and the Sol came with a generous lime wedge.
The food came as it was ready so we did not all eat at once (as was explained by the waitress) but we had purposely ordered dishes that could be shared so this did not bother us at all (though if you are ordering independent dishes you need to be aware that you may not all eat together at the same time)
The food was fresh, tasty and they were able to accommodate spice preferences and allergies.
The desserts were a stand out - the "Churros" and the "Agave and Vanilla" were absolutely delicious and we shared the two of them between four of us.
Due to the popularity of this restaurant and its wooden clad walls it can be quite noisy, but on the other hand this adds to the authentic vibe of the place.

From the minute you walk into Mamacita, you are greeted with such a great energy! Not only from the smiling staff but also the fun, funky environment! The staff are ready with any questions you have about the food/specials and they were always refilling our water straight away which showed their attention to detail. Mamacita has a wide range of food choices, to which they suggest ordering a few plates and sharing with one another. The food was amazing and so fast to come out to us, we were done within an hour and left feeling like stuffed pigs! My favourite would have to be the pulled pork quesadilla, but you also can't go wrong with their chip and guacamole combo! Definitely, recommend eating here, you won't regret it!

We loved everything about Mamacita - the decor, the service, how tamariki-friendly it is (our 3 year old got stuck in to the colouring in then wolfed down a kid's quesidilla), and most of all the kai! What a treat those tacos are. Mauri ora!

A few new staff training, but they were all really nice and helpful.

One of the top places to go in Hawkes Bay - can't wait for the Napier store to open.

As per usual, Mamacitias delivered the goods! Their food is always superb, their service efficient and their atmosphere fabulous. The highlight definitely had to be the pork ribs, no the fried chicken, or wait the quesadillas - IT WAS ALL FABULOUS (and especially the margaritas!). Will be back for sure!
