The elegant and very scrumptious plates, the excellent quality of the service and the atmosphere make la rumbla a 'must visit' on anyone's list for queenstown/arrowtown

We always have an amazing evening here. The tapas is delicious, the cocktails are excellent. Staff very friendly and efficient. Every time we go we always forget to book and as it's busy every night of the week we have to sit up at the bar, but actually it's probably the best place to be as we always have a... More

Arrowtownの一画、ちょっと奥まったところにある隠れ家的なタパス。それにも関わらず、予約必須な人気店です。 メニューはどれもおいしく、私は特にこんがりじゃがいもフライにガーリックのきいた特製マヨネーズをつけて食べたものがお気に入り。他にも、ハムのコロッケにトリュフソースをかけていただくプレートやとろっとろの牛肉のプレートもどれもレベルが高く本当に満足!デザートは定期的に新しいメニューを生み出しているそうで、私たちが行ったときはちょうど新製品がお目見えしたところでした。私がいただいたタルトはサクサクの台にほどよい甘さのクリームとフルーツが載った、シンプルながらクリームの味が完成度を左右する一品。もちろん、とても美味しかったです。是非また行きたいお店のひとつです、おすすめ! Better to make a reservation, very famous restaurant at Arrowtown. The entrance is a bit difficult to find, but many people visit here. Everything are sooo nice. My favorite is a plate of fried potato with tasty mayo/tomato sauce. Also, we enjoyed croquette of hum with truffle mayo, nicely soft beef, , , everything!!

The meal we had at La Rumbla was outstanding. The service was excellent, and the choices on the menu were plentiful. We sampled a wide range of the tapas styled food, and were more than happy with everything that was served to our table. We will be coming back again!

Food was delicious, tapas style. The prawns, cod, tender beef, coconut fried chicken, lamb fillet were all cooked perfectly. Nice atmosphere and great cocktails. Friendly and attentive service. We will be back.

Have eaten here a few times (when feeling flush with cash or for a treat). Owners really care and have instilled high standards into their business and staff. Yummy and interesting food, service is just right for the environment and has a great wine list, actually the whole beverage list is very good. A "must do" when in Arrowtown for... More

This was without doubt the best meal we had on our southern sojourn - the food was exquisite, the service just right and, for once, my decision to go off my own tried-and-tested-wine-path amply rewarded. This is the kind of place you just wish your holiday schedule allowed you to stay and try a few more times in a row.

I delayed my birthday celebration by a night as la rumbla not open on a Monday night. We had 15 of us and asked them to select the food. Worked really well - was a little squashed at the table but that was our fault as numbers grew. Will def revisit the next time we are there

Wow what a wonderful way to end our stay in New Zealand this year. La Rumbla is one of the finest restaurants I have ever eaten in. This was my second visit to the La Rumbla and after boasting about the food and service to my friends we were not disappointed. The waitress was friendly and attentive, she answered all... More

This gorgeous little place tucked away in a left hook next to the Postmaster's Residence is a hidden gem! My friend and I walked in at about 5.30pm without a booking on a Tuesday night and we managed to get a table because it was relatively quiet (we did have to vacate before 7.30pm though). The service was polished and... More
