This is a popular restaurant but I don't know why. We arrived for dinner 30 minutes before our booking time and got turfed out - they had no room - and told to come back at our allocated time. We did this and were seated straight away - great. Staff were friendly and took our orders quickly... read more

Absolutely delish in every sense of the word! For a family with fussy teenagers, we cannot rave about Sombreros more! Our waitress Morgan was one of the most delightful people l've ever met and could not have done more for us if she'd have tried! We thoroughly recommend this gorgeous authentic Mexican restaurant and l can tell you, we will... More

The food here was fast and amazing and on point at all times. I must admit the customer service was the best I've ever experienced. He made us all feel welcomed and made sure we were all ok with everything. Even the theming of the room was amazing it really did suit what they were selling. Best place to eat... More

My experience at this restaurant was really great!! as soon as we walked through the doors we were approached and got nothing but amazing customer service from one of the workers. The food was so yummy and cooked to perfection. I would definitely go back to this restaurant.

My husband and I love this lace. Great Mexican food - excellent margaritas. There isn't anything not to love. Service has been excellent on all our visits. My husband lived a long while in Texas and he's hard to please when it comes to Mexican food and this gets his tick of approval - which comes in the form of... More

Chanced by this place when feeling like something fresh and tasty aside from the ubiquitous fries ghat seem to appear endlessly on Kiwi menus. The frontage wasn't too promising and we nearly didn't go upstairs but so glad we did. from the decor to the food it was the real mccoy. Great selection of dishes - all delicious, great assortment...

I go to sombreros just about every birthday - why? Because it's got a great atmosphere, we know everyone will feel comfortable and have a warm, filling meal, and its fun! We enjoy margarita's and some sneaky shots, a few cerveza's and have a laugh. The food is tasty and filling, fajitas are my favourite, and a if you take... More
