Located corner Cuba and Vivian Streets heart of Wellington. Friendly prompt service. Good value meals. Steady flow of patrons but didn't need to book table for 2 people on a Saturday night. Enjoyed a selection of cocktails including Mexican mule and margueritas. Very enjoyable and would come here again when visiting Wellington.

We had dinner here. It was quite busy. The food was amazing. Service was fantastic. As it was busy the food was a little slow though. Only downside is that it is very loud in there.

My partner and I stayed in Wellington 2 weeks ago. FBB was recommended by some friends of ours. We went there for drinks / cocktails before dinner and were very pleased. Would recommend the Mezcal Margarita!!

Ordered the beef tacos. Literally just a corn tortilla filled with something likely cooked a few days earlier. Disgusting.

Every time I visit Wellington, Flying Burrito brothers is one of the places I put on my must go to list for dinner! The food is always really tasty, and I love the way that the restaurant looks. The restaurant is two levels, and the bottom level is below the street, which feels über cool! I've been to the Hamilton... More

Delicious Mexican food in the heart of Cuba St. A dish named after the restaurant is a must-try. You won't leave this place hungry.

We stopped in The Flying Burrito Brothers after a recommendation from a friend. Everyone except me orders the fajitas and they looked delicious. I tried a chimichanga & it was awesome! This is good 'fake' mexican food, plenty of cheese, a bit of spice but not authntic, but that shouldn't take away the fact that they do this kind of... More

Located in upper Cuba Street Wellington we got a table straight away. The waitresses were friendly and helpful. I had a margarita on the rocks and a frozen margarita. Both delicious. The entree nachos was yummy and plenty of it. I followed it with a vegetarian taco and was full. Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Well worth a visit.... More

The Flying Burrito Brothers never fails to deliver, great food and drink. While downstairs can be a bit hot the staff and food always delivers
