The Mexican Cafe just never stops buzzing. Just across the road from SKYCITY, it has been Auckland’s favourite Mexican restaurant since 1983.

A perfect place if you are looking for a pre or post show dining option with a difference, they even have a fully covered outdoor veranda where you can choose to dine. 

Lunch is available until 4pm each day.
