Dined at La Rumbla tonight with a big group -- 13 of us. It was a great meal. We let the waiters/chef choose our food and they brought out about 8 or 9 outstanding tapas to be shared by the group.

This was one of the best places we ate at on our 2 week stay in Arrowtown. The food was delicious and the service was great. Our waitress was Peta......she was amazing, a real breath of fresh air. I would recommend coming here for sure.....but you must book......very popular.

If you visit queenstown or arrowtown you must pay a visit to this restaurant! It is fantastic! We had the shrimp appetizer and fresh salad mix! The shrimp dish was out of this world! The waitress, Jessica, was also very helpful and made great recommendations! We stayed for the paella, which is a Thursday night special! We simply paid what... More

We go to La Rumbla a lot - like every week when we are in Queenstown (we live here) and sometimes 2-3 times - it never fails to impress us. The food is always amazing, so tasty, so fresh, so innovative and healthy - you don't feel guilty over eating at La Rumbla. PJ and the team on the floor... More

Stunning Tapas, better than anything I've had in Melbourne and that includes Mo Vida, Marmasita and Bomba etc... Definitely one to book and definitely worth the drive from Queenstown
