I've dined at many Mexican restaurants and this one definitely offer fresh produce and flavours! I had the chicken chimichanga for entree and although it was feel fried it wasn't greasy! Then had the pescado (fish) in soft tacos and it was so fresh and delicious. Only comment here is that I picked off the bacon for I just didn't... More

In previous experiences here I have always thoroughly enjoyed my meal and my time. This time however I felt some things were done poorly. Firstly the menu has changed since I last visited and now there is a smaller selection of options for food. Some of the more speciality items have been taken off the menu leaving only the standard...

I decided to take a friend out to dinner (she twisted my arm on Faceook). I booked ahead. As per usual I took advantage of a $40 voucher from NZ's GrabOne site. This deal gave us a Chimichanga to share, 2 Burritos and 2 Sol Beers OR 2 Frozen Margaritas. When we arrived we entered a nicely presented establishment, with... More

Four of us went to Pan de Muerto using their wonderful GrabOne deal that included a shared appetizer between two, a burrito main each and a drink. We couldn't have been happier with the value of the meal, the meal itself and the service! Delicious fresh food, yummy cocktails and super cool decor - will definitely be going back!

Last experiences at this establishment have been fantastic. That's why we were a bit surprised this time around. The meals were variable, too spicy for authentic mexican food and the churros were disappointing. Not sure what happened this time. Would like to see a return to previous meal standards.

There has been a Mexican wave developing in New Zealand and Pan de Muerto, with its dynamic design and modern cuisine, is at the forefront of this wave.

Pan de Muerto, Mystic Mexican Cuisine and Tequila Bar, represents the progression of the original Pan de Muerto concept that first opened in 2010. The restaurant is named after the sacred bread eaten by Mexicans during the annual celebration of the lives of their deceased loved ones.

Pan de Muerto's approach to dining represents a celebration of life, friends, family and loved ones. Dining is a sharing experience where you select from a range of Pequenos bocados (small bites) or Tapas as they are more commonly known throughout the world. The diverse and interesting selection of Pequenos bocados on the menu are all perfectly complimented by Wellington's largest selection of imported tequila and Mexican cerveza.

Our dishes are meticulously prepared and executed using a mix of mainly imported and local produce. You will find traditional Mexican dishes, as well as modern variations of traditional dishes and flavours. The menu changes regularly to make the most of seasonal ingredients.

Pan de Muerto is not just known for its flavoursome food. The incredible decor speaks volumes about the passion that has gone into the development of this restaurant. As you enter the restaurant you step into another world, with a mix of contemporary and rustic design, and subtle details that will surprise. An infusion of friendly human size skeletons are scattered throughout the restaurant. Affectionately named 'Pedro', the smiling sugar skull takes pride of place on the restaurant's logo and is now widely associated with Mexican food throughout New Zealand. The food and decor is complemented by professional friendly service with a South American feel to give you a truly authentic dining experience.

Pan de Muerto has created a very unique and friendly dining experience which caters for people of all ages. On special occasions, you might see face painting or watch the restaurant transform into a dance floor with live Mariachi bands. There's always something new happening.

Make every meal likes it's your last, break bread with us at Pan De Muerto.

Hasta pronto
