We were looking for a place to eat on Boxing Day and this was one of the few restaurants open. We were not disappointed. We were seated immediately, service was quick and food was delicious. We got a quesadilla, dips and tortillas and fried chicken to share and they were all delicious. Overall good value as well.

Came here on spec after looking for a Mexican restaurant on evening prior to returning to Australia from an NZ trip. The place was full and very busy for a Monday night and was first directed to wait at the bar. However table became available shortly thereafter. The staff from front of house person , bar man and waitress staff were very friendly and attentive. Was extremely please to find they served a Mexican black beer that I had enjoyed in Mexico. Made the mistake of having nachos to start as main meal was more than enough but chose to have the blackboard desert anyway. It more than lived up to its description. All in all it was a great final night in NZ

Wandered in late without a booking. Looked busy. Greeted warmly and a table found immediately. Food came quickly. Great flavours. Kids loved their meals, but they enjoy spicy food. Our waitress was awesome - friendly and helpful. She really made our time in the restaurant feel more like we’d popped over to a friend’s place for dinner. All for a reasonable price. Great work Mexicanos.

I fell in love with this restaurants food after the first visit so had to come back as soon as I was in chch again. The tortillas are mouth watering and the fried chicken is absolutely delicious. The raw fish was a great combo of flavours and though I can never usually eat much raw fish I was quick to scoff this one down. Most definitely a fav dining spot in chch for me.
