Rave reviews for this place, great food and drinks. Attentive and really friendly staff! We’ve been many times before but our first time using first table there. If you get the chance, order the starters that’s essentially a plate of nachos with a pot of melted cheese. Can’t remember what it’s called, and it sounds ridiculous, but was the absolute highlight, foodwise.

Everything was delicious - from the wonderful cranberry or mango flavoured frozen margaritas to the burritos, chicken salad, soft tacos and caramel cheesecake - all of us came away with smiles from Flying Burrito Brothers.

We were swiftly seated and our waiter was bomb. He did his job excellently and the food was amazing. We very much enjoyed this experience stand out was adobo flying burrito and pork tacos yum. Best Mexican food I've had ever. That shared dessert tray though. Dayymmm

Right from the moment we entered the restaurant we received amazing service. The gentleman serving us was awesome and extrememly helpful at giving us recomendations of food or drink.

Excellent service from the start. The staff helped us carry our large double pram down the stairs. We eat early because we have two small children. They were acting pretty terrible but the waiter was so kind and patient. The food was great, especially the ceviche!
The place was filling up fast. Seems like a hot spot.

I chose Flying Burrito Brothers because it's my boyfriend's favourite food and it was his birthday :) We were promptly seated and our orders were taken quickly. Staff asked us about our food throughout dining and paying via first table was a smooth process. Food was excellent, get the fish tacos!! Definitely will be returning.

Delicious food, great atmosphere and fantastic service. Really tasty cherry and apple margaritas and a stupendous portion size for the fajitas. But what we'll be back for ASAP is the chili con queso and holy mole enchiladas!

As always, Flying Burrito Brothers was incredible!
The atmosphere was so alive, the food was amazing, and the service was excellent.
I had the vegeteriana fajita and it was delicious!! Such a great meal!
I’ve been to Flying Burrito Brothers probably more than 10 times, and it’s safe to say it’s one of my favourite restaurants!

Great food at a reasonable price. This is a great place to go for a group function, a family dinner, or a quick eat before a movie. Tasty food and generous portions, with friendly service to boot. Well done FBB!

Our night was fantastic!! I went with two friends, one who had also been to Flying Burrito Brothers before, and one who hadn’t. Our waiters were prompt, friendly and helpful - such lovely people! The food we had was amazing - both starters and mains. I LOVE Flying Burrito Brothers, it remains one of my favourite restaurants in Wellington! To have it half price is a true gift!!!

We had an awesome birthday dinner at Flying Burrito Bros last night. The Burritos were primeo but need hot sauce, which is available on the table so that everyone gets their food with the right heat for them. Chilli con queso was good, but salsa a bit unusual - not sweet or salty enough but it could be that the tomatoes aren't very sweet at this time of year. Overall we loved it and will be back.

Sizzling fajitas were really good. Only constructive criticism i would give is that 3 wraps isn't quite enough, 4 would of been perfect.
