A very good Mexican Restaurant

The restaurant is a little gem for Mexican food. They also cook the food to whatever taste you prefer mild,moderate or spicy. Service was excellent and the food very good. if you like Mexican well worth a visit.

Our second time back here was just as good as the first. Good place if you have kids. There is a toy box and you can buy an activity pack for around $2. Good food, nice atmosphere, friendly service. We will be back next time we visit Queenstown.

Mexican food in the center of Queenstown. It has a lovely terrace and decorations inside are really nice. The food was OK and the waitress was also kind and helpful. We didn't like enchiladas though. A good choice if you want to avoid the crowded Fergburguer close by.

My girlfriend and I ate at Sombreros in Queenstown recently and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. I ordered the enchilada (hot) which was just the right amount of spice without being uncomfortable and tasted great. My girlfriend got the chicken burrito (medium) which was very tasty and full of authentic Mexican flavour. If you like Tequila, they have an extensive, good... More
