Sharing plates is always a great way to try different foods and La Rumbla didn't disappoint, the atmosphere is buzzing and the mural on the wall is creative. Great place for couples of groups.

I had the best cocktail I think I have ever tasted this time called the Kasbar, it's a sweet tasting cocktail, absolutely delicious. Make... More

Although i am not a fan of 'shared plates' La Rumbla does good food. Dishes were made with care, service was responsive and the cocktails yummy. Good bet when in Arrowtown although the bill creeps up with every morsel.

Friend and I were walking around and randomly found this place. We are soo happy we did. All the boxes got ticked with this find. From the Flox (NZ Designer) decor, to the finesse of their cocktail and wine list right through to the amazing fusion mix of tastes. It is amazing and truly deserving of the #1 in Arrow... More

Very cute little restaurant/bar down behind the Post Office in Arrowtown. Delicious cocktails and a great menu - tapas style - small servings and everything tastes good. Just keep ordering till you've had enough.

We dined at La Rumbla twice and each time were very, very happy with our experience. The staff is extremely friendly and efficient. The first time we hadn't booked and sat at the bar where we were entertained by the very expert barman who made excellent cocktails! The dishes came out 1 by 1 which gave us the time to... More

This place was tasty and stylish with excellent service. It works great as a bar and restaurant and we greatly enjoyed our drinks and tapas. It is also nice that the kitchen and bar stay open late relative to other places we had come across in New Zealand.
