The Mexican Cafe

The legend continues! Enjoy the great food, drinks, music and culture of Mexico when you visit the Mexican Cafe cantina bar and restaurant in central Auckland. Our traditional cantina style bar is just the place to meet friends for a snack and a Margarita, or a place to chill out should you need to wait for a table. We offer over 80 different Tequilas, 18 beers (including Mexican beers), 35 wines, an exciting house cocktail list and, of course, the expertise and ingredients to create almost any cocktail you wish. Our outside deck provides a restful atmosphere to enjoy dinner in the balmy night air of summer or the warmth from the heaters in winter, as well as an amazing view of the magnificent Sky Tower across the road.

    Went here on a busy saturday after missing our train. It was absolutely packed & after explaining to staff we had a show we had to go to they reassured they could fit us in . We seated quickly and served even faster. We were out of there with plenty of time to make our show. Service was fantastic & the food was fantastic & well priced. Really appreciated staffs efforts to serve us quickly and enthusiatically so we were under no stress. I highly recommend it. You dont see like this often!

    Was really good. Good service, good food and good price. Like it and always recommend the place. Something to improve..., when you are in your table, staff brings nachos and a sauce. Which is great as welcoming, but when you are in a group of 4 or more people I suggest to bring more than 1 portion. A portion is ok for 2 people. Not for 4 or more. Cheers
