Hidden down behind the old Post Office in Arrowtown this place is the hidden gem of Arrowtown. DELICIOUS. Great coctails and winelist, and friendly, well trained staff. It might pay to book though, too many people are rating it 5 stars! :)

This place is busy all the time so avoid dissapointment and book ahead.A girlfriend and I had an awesome meal here,delicious cocktails and great tapas.The prawns and the chicken stood out for me, the lamb and pork enchiladas were also yummy. The staff were wonderful, we had several questions regarding the food and drink!I would highly recommend a visit.

This is a great place to drop in for some delicious tapas plates, nice wines and a buzz that makes the place sound like everyone's having fun. The tapas menu has a good selection, cooked fresh and changes frequently keeping you with new things to try. We normally plan for two dishes per person being about the right amount but... More

This place is a must visit when you're in Queenstown / Arrowtown. We arrived for dinner one night and absolutely loved their decor. They serve larger than tapas styled dishes. They have a lot of drinks to choose from, as they are a wine bar. At the end of the night, we were told by a waiter that we had... More

The decor and vibe of the restaurant are laid back and cool and the staff are friendly, welcoming and very professional. Sam (owner and chef) does a superb job at... More

This is one classy little place. No surprises then that booking is a must. The food was very tasty and something different to the regular Tapas. Good wine selection to accompany the food and the service was friendly and efficient. We particularly like that you can order a few dishes to share, have plenty to eat without feeling like you've...

The food was fantastic and the recommended wine complimented it well. You have to book in advance as it is very popular.

A recommendation by the airport taxi driver and we weren't disappointed. We called last minute for a booking on a Friday night and they couldn't have been more accommodating, even though they were very busy! The food was absolutely incredible - diverse, delicious and good sized portions. We took the recommendation of the waitress to order two dishes each and... More

We dined here as a table of 5 including one vegetarian, we were all happy with the amount of choice from the menu and the kitchen was very helpful to adapt a couple of dishes for the vego. Overall the food was ok, nothing amazing but nothing bad either, nice basic food. Two of our group were Spanish and we're... More
