found this restaurant while wandering around beautiful Queenstown - returned for dinner friendly service entrees of nachos and mains burritos- nicely presented - service a bit slow in consideration of the fact that it was early in the evening and only two other tables occupied

Authentic Mexican in a friendly environment. Food was great and servings were generous. The staff were friendly and helpful. They also went out of their way to help a friend enjoy their birthday by making them feel special.

We ate at Sombreros last night with a big group of people and found the food and service very good. Staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere very typical of a family Mexican restaurant. A good range of Mexican cuisines which caters for vegetarians and vegans also. The tap beer was nice and cheap however the meals in general... More

This place is always very friendly and welcoming, there is always people laughing and having a good time. The best thing on the menu (In my opinion) is one of the shared ones (Can't remember what it is called) but your meats/veggies come out on a sizzling hot plate, then you have little tortilla things, and cheese etc and you...

We tried this place on our 4th night in Queenstown and absolutely loved the food!!! It was so delicious we went back again before leaving! The staff remembered us and were all very friendly. We tried the nachos, enchilada and tacos and they were all very delicious! It can be a bit pricey though, worth it :)

I was a lone diner and was still treated as warmly as the large groups who were there too. It was obviously a popular choice as the restaurant was FULL to the brim, bustling with tables of all ages. There was heaps of food choices and explanations of the not-so familiar Mexican specialities and pronunciations. I had the mulled wine... More
