Serves meat, vegan options available. An upper level Mexican food restaurant that overlooks Beach Street. You can ask for burrito without cheese and sour cream; chef is familiar with what vegan means. Nice atmosphere. Prices are moderate to expensive.

First Review by Winterdragon

underwhelming - Edit

Was NOT what I expected. Got vegan tacos but poor presentation and only came with beans (not refried beans as they had advertised), 1 piece of carrot and a chunk of cauliflower! Didn't seem to have vegan cheese even though it stated it on the menu! Taste was OK but needed better aesthetics and more ingredients!

Pretty good! - Edit

We had large burritos with added guac for $20 each and they were nice and filling. Salsa on the side was perfect because burrito itself was missing a bit of flavor so it made it a great meal, not heavy as some Mexican restaurants make it. All in all we left with happy bellies. :-)

Pros: A few good vegan options, portion size.

Decent vegan options - Edit

Vegan options are clearly labelled on the menu, and staff is knowledgeable about which dishes can be made vegan or not.
They advertise vegan cheese, but they don't use any cheese that melts in the quesadilla or in the nachos for example. They still have a homemade cashew-cheese with the tacos.
Food is not exceptional, a little bit blend, but tastes alright.
3 tacos for $19, vegan burrito for $17, small nachos for $9

Average Vegan Options - Edit

Ordering a Vegan meal was quite simple, we ordered vegetarian nachos without cheese and sour cream, and the staff were helpful with any queries we had about the food. But the food was quite pricey and bland - I don't believe they reduced the prices of the dishes at all despite the lack of two ingredients. And we asked for extra guacamole to make up for the cheese - there was no extra on the meal.
The food was enjoyable, but for a great vegan meal in Queenstown for the same price I would go elsewhere. A good place to go if you are in a group of non-vegans though and need some simple options though.

Pros: Helpful staff, Customisable meals for vegan options, Classic Mexican dishes

Cons: No vegan options on the menu, Too expensive for such simple meals

Just what we needed - Edit

We had just arrived in town and were waiting for our room to be ready and needed to fill in some time and refuel. Enjoyable, cheap 'n' cheerful food. Lovely, friendly staff. It is situated on the second floor and we had a seat by the window so that added to the pleasure.

Friendly staff who will offer to make many dishes vegan if you just ask. The enchiladas are tasty and adequately hot. A bit pricey.
