Good solid meal

The food was nicer than it looked and definitely filling. We got quick service and the waitress was helpful and friendly. Very reasonably priced.

We came here last year when on holiday and again this year. I loved being able to book online. Menu wise you can configure your meal however you like. We opted for a small main- a soft taco-which gave us room to enjoy some entrees and dessert afterwards. Hope to be back again next year

Superb setting.. views of the lake, and delicious and authentic mexican food. Since there aren't too many mexican options in Wanaka, this is definately the must go place when in Wanaka

The menu at Amigos carries a wide selection of Mexican dishes. They are clearly explained so that you know how spicy your meal will be. There is a children's menu, and a good selection of NZ wines - a good selection of beers too.. The restaurant is attached to Lake Wanaka Hotel but has more character than most hotel restaurants....

For people from US this is not Tex-Mex but good traditional Mexican recipes served also beer and Margaritas! The food reminds me of interior Mexico. The staff is very nice and helpful!

Although a bit crowded and noisy the rest of the experience here was great. We were in a fairly large group of mixed ages but the people went out of their way at a busy time to accommodate us. Service was prompt, the meals very good and at a reasonable price(especially for a tourist town). Would return.

Visited with friends without a booking but staff immediately made a table available, they were so friendly and helpful and the food and drinks were excellent. The price was very reasonable as well, we loved it, thanks for a great evening team, we will definitely return.

I used Amigos for dinner about 1 weeks ago. Vegetable nachos were big and taste so yammy. After dinner I noticed I forgot to bring my muffler, then they posted it to me!! I'll definetly come back there!
