Alvarados Mexican Restaurant


Restaurant located at 139 Worcester St at the time of September 4th, 2010 earthquake. Dramatically and largely collapsed building. Used during a number of newscasts as a backdrop to illustrate the devastation in Christchurch's CBD.

Main content of webpage as of September 8th, 2010 reads as follows:

Closed due to extensive earthquake damage.

ALVARADOS IS UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT (and has been totally remodelled).

Was a must for authentic traditional style Mexican Cuisine.

New menu out now! (if you find it blowing around on the street, could you return it please?)


Was fully licensed and BYO (wine only).


Was open Tuesday - Saturday from 5.30pm


Alfresco dining apparently isn't an option. Something to do with the lack of access, water, power and hygiene.
