the food here is gorgeous and the guys on the grill know their stuff so the meat is delicious. We really enjoyed it. I feel sorry for them being let down by the ladies who are waiting on tables. No real smile, very unfriendly. I made a booking and had added that we had a 3yrs old with us. If i'd have known it was that kid unfriendly then we would have saved it for a kid free night. There was a leak from next door under our table and my shoes got soaked but when i told the lady- nothing- couldn't care less.

We went to El Humero for a friend's birthday dinner who had been raving about the place for a long time. So happy to have discovered yet another great place to eat in Auckland which is not uptight and expensive.
I ordered the chicken kebab for entree and the BBQ chicken for main and they were both DELICIOUS! My partner in crime had the crispy pork for the entree and his only complaint was that it was too small (he likes his portions big). His main was 300gm steak which was overcook but nevertheless, quite tasty too!
We also had one drink each and all of this cost us $69.
There might be a language barrier when ordering food at this place because the staff there are all super duper awesome Spanish speakers, but it's food! It brings us all together so pointing at what you'd like on the menu will work just fine!
Enjoy!

Stumbled upon this place in a lane in Takapuna . No gluten free labelling but the staff can tell you what is what . All the entrees are interesting and are gluten free . We had entrees for lunch but the mains looked really great as well .
The empanadas are tasty, stuffed with the beautiful moist beef , the arepas are lovely the salsas are fresh , the chorizo nice and smokey
It's great as a gluten free person to be able to enjoy the special flavours .
