Everything was great apart from the corner where we were sat at. We couldn't see what we were eating as it was quite dim. Everything else was perfect!
Had a awesome time, my children said they loved everything about it. The grotto was awesome and the food and service thank you
Great food, plenty of options, prompt and pleasant service.
Always delicious, great option for a casual dinner out
Perfect for sharing and trying a bit of everything. Fantastic table service and flavoursome food. Recommend the jalapeño poppers, and the corn bread. Everything else we have had before many times and its always just as good. Good times!
Great experience from start to finish 👌 Food, service and lovely environment. Nice spacious seating.
Friendly staff. Food was tasty. Seats were a bit cold
Can’t beat the crispy fish tacos!! Little bit dark for seeing the food properly but adds to the atmosphere I guess. Great surprise of a complimentary margarita as it was my birthday. Still one of my fav places to eat.
Such a friendly vibe. Definitely recommend and return. We let we were invited in to a space the staff were enjoying. Wait staff excellent and food delicious and interesting. The time before the fried chicken was delicious but felt after effect that it had been oily, but we still loved it. We will definitely bring others next time.
Out of towners...First time here but absolutely loved everything, Definetly recommend this to others.
Very tasty meal, lovely atmosphere and friendly/helpful service
Mexi Mama never disappoints! Favourite Mexican restaurant in Hawkes Bay
Our waitress was lovely and very attentive ,not sure of her name but she maybe had a American or Canadian accent ☺️
If you enjoy quality Mexican flavour food and are in Napier Mexi Mama is definitely the place to eat at. The owners associated Iron Pot craft brewery also produces a mean lager that goes well with the spicy fare.
Lovely food, great atmosphere and the staff were great
Great service with friendly , upbeat staff, tasty food and a nice atmosphere
First meal out after lockdown and awesome as always.
Outstanding customer service. Amazing margaritas and food
Service from staff was amazing, very friendly and welcoming.
Food and drinks were okay
Loved it! Food was fab. Staff attentive and fun 👍🏽
Cant fault them. Great food, great service, great cocktails, lovely atmosphere. We sat outside as it was hot and enjoyed a sunset and the sea views. Great hospitality and good price.
Great food and service. The only down side was the tennis being screened, making it feel more like a sports bar then a restaurant.
Food was delicious even though they were busy the staff were very patient and friendly.
A perfect place for a relaxed birthday dinner. Great food. Lovely view of the port as the sun went down. Spicy octopus and churros were my favourites 👍
Great location, food was very tasty and reasonably priced. Good selection of drinks and also reasonably priced. Friendly helpful staff. Would definitely go back again
Our first time at mexi mamas a great relaxing place to have a meal, the service was great, meals came out fast and the food was very nice. Highly recommend. And our teenagers got a free drink because it was there 18 th bday
I always love coming here, food is great, service is great, venue is great. Looking forward to my next visit x
Pefect spot on a warm Hawkes Bay evening to enjoy beer, marguerite and excellent Mexican food
The food was absolutely fabulous! My first time dining at Mexi Mama and I loved it! The Margarita's are absolutely delicious! Great service! Friendly Staff! I highly recommend Mexi Mama's to everyone.
Mexi Mamma, is such a good place to dine the food is amazing and filling there is such a variety of drinks , we have been twice for work dinners and the customer service is exceptional friendly staff, great people to have conversations with and have a good sense of humour and nothing is to much to ask, I would recommend this to everyone! Also best fried chicken out
Such great food and fabulous service. Will definitely be back.
Mexi Mama is my favourite Mexican restaurant in Hawke’s Bay. The staff always go above and beyond, are super friendly and are always welcoming.
The food is epic, always consistently good and authentic tasting with a healthy kick of spice. Drinks are always on point too.
Always look forward to my next visit.
Keep up the great work, Jamie and team!
It was a great evening with fab food. However, I ordered Churros, really looking forward to them, two others received theirs. About 10 mins later our waitress said ours were coming. Then about 10-15 mins later she told us they had run out of mixture. So super disappointed with that service.
Have just tried other local mexican places which have been better in terms of portion sizes, quality, and service. Place was very noisy too. The churros seemed to have been double fried as were very crunchy and not like soft in the middle.
We had a great night at Mexi Mamas, the food was outstanding, the service amazing....my new favourite place for dinner 😉
Service abysmal, noisy, food very good. Waited an hour for a drink then had to ask for it. Would have walked out at this stage but kept hoping meal would arrive. An hour and 20 minutes after being seated it came.
Great friendly staff, went above and beyond to make us comfortable.
Food and service were awesome. Definitely going again!
Best tacos on the North Island. Literally drive out of the way to eat here. Great for gf/vegan!
Mexi Mama is my favourite Mexican restaurant in Hawkes’ Bay, the staff are always friendly, service is quick, food is excellent and drinks are on point.
I always go home fully satisfied and can’t wait until my next visit.
Keep up the good work, team!
