Amazing food that tastes Mexican to the next level with interesting gourmet combinations that are great to share!

You've happened to successfully ask this girl out that you've been crushing on for weeks and now you have to plan the impossible: the perfect first date. You've got some things in mind: Some pre-dinner drinks, a light but filling supper, and maybe a stroll by the beach. No worries - Mexico is just around the corner. Mexico has a great selection of beers and liquors to choose from, plus tequila and 10 flavors of margaritas. Looking for something light? Try their soft shell tacos. If you want something more filling or something to share with her, you can try their quesadillas and other specialties. Even if you're not a big fan of Mexican cuisine, there's something about Mexico that will definitely pull you in and make you want to come back. And let's not forget that the Takapuna beach is just a stone's throw away from the place, making for a perfect ending to your night. Highlights: Expect a lot of Frida Kahlo everywhere. Tons of hot sauces. Did I mention they serve 10 different flavors of margaritas? Personal favorites: Taco Dorado (make sure you order the mild one if you're not up for the zing) and Smokey beef skirt over Coronas.

I have been to Mexico many times since it's opening and it has never disappointed. The service is always quick and the food is consistently delicious. The menu is regularly updated, so every time I go I feel like I’m in for a new experience. As for the interior, its like nothing you have ever seen before. The walls are lined with colorful Mexican art work, adding to the lively atmosphere.

I love the food here - it is beyond amazing. Gets a bit packed and it’s frustrating that you can’t book but food is awesome. Margaritas are pretty great too.

Mexico Takapuna is one of my favorite restaurants in Auckland! This place has a fantastic authentic Mexican decor that will wow you straight away. The food is always amazing, fresh, full of flavour and simply delicious. Service there is consistently quick, food comes out in 5-10 mins after ordering. Staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating. Love this place!

The food here is always great! Fresh, lovely flavours and perfect to grab something light with a drink or linger for the evening with good company. The margaritas are awesome and you should definitely try the fried chicken, even if you aren't really supposed to be eating things like that... it's so good, you won't be sorry, I promise!
