Lovely fresh, homemade food. Loved the savoury tortilla soup with avocado and cheese. I could have ordered two servings. My friend is vegetarian and she enjoyed her dishes. Good location for touring wineries.

Wonderful little place in downtown Wellington. They offer tapas style small bites with fresh made-to-order tortillas. The food is beautifully simple with fresh, local ingredients. I love that they list the farms that source their proteins right on the menu so you know you are...eating farm-to-table. We really enjoyed the crispy fish taco made with BC Rockfish, the braised beef tacos and the tinga tostada. Delicious margaritas and some nice mocktail options too. We will definitely be back.More

Went to this place as a recommendation from a friend. The restaurant staff, deco and food was great but the wait for horrible. As many mentioned, they don't allow for reservations so we thought we'll go a bit later. We got there at 8pm (they...close at 9pm) and was told the wait would be 25 mins or so and their last call is 8.45pm. We decided to leave our name anyways and just walked around the street. Honestly, besides that fact, everything else was amazing. The staff was really nice and when we did get the text, they even apologized and said they would at least sit us at the bar and then move us to a table once one was ready. We actually just stayed at the bar. The bartender was so friendly and it wasn't like it was uncomfortable to sit there esp since the food isn't really shared. He did recommend we order 2 things each and we did. The Spicy Shrimp taco really has a great kick to it! All the food was so yummy and the churros was the perfect way to end the meal. So happy they also serve Negra Modelo.More

We had a wonderful time at La Condesa! They don’t take reservations but our wait time for a table for 6 was very reasonable. From the Margaritas to the ‘Mexican Tapas’ style menu, we enjoyed every bite. Service was quick and our waitress could really...explain the dishes to us and helped us choose. All of us said we would definitely return to this restaurant again.More

My wife and I had a very enjoyable meal at this friendly and brightly decorated Mexican restaurant. We both had a mix of tortillas and other dishes and found them tasty, without being too hot. The service was super friendly. The only reason I give...them four rather than five stars is the noise levels, which got a bit much as the place filled up. And on that score, my one tip is - get there early. They don’t take reservations (but do have a wait list). We sat down at about 5.40 on a Friday evening and it was full barely an hour later. Would certainly go back.More

What a wonderful Mexican dining experience we had at La Condesa. Delicious authentic food cooked by a talented Mexican chef. The restaurant is owned by a lovely Australian guy who made us feel very welcome and ensured we had a fabulous evening. Every dish tasted...divine and could be accompanied by a good selection of local wines.More

Boutique Mexican restaurant with tons of charm. A n authentic & fresh meal that was delicious. Order some starters to share and finish off with a signature taco. The shrimp & chorizo taco was my fav. Highly recommend stopping in.
