4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2014 NEW

Walked in off the street and they sat us down at the last table outside which was the table we wanted. Service was friendly and good. Food was really good. The only downside was we ordered a side of fries which never turned up even after we reminded them twice. All good as we really didn't need them!

Place was solid , nice fresh Mexican food , reasonable prices , and they serve 500ml draft beer. What more could you want after a big hike.

The outside seatings are nice with a good view. However the food was pretty average and the margarita lacking alcohol.

Hi. If you like your Margaritas with a bit more kick, I suggest you either order them on the rocks instead of blended, or try one of the many premium versions that we make. That said, there's a double shot of 100% agave Tequila in even the 'house' version, more in the premiums... so they're definitely not lacking in booze!... More

We had heard good and bad about this facility, but as a couple who enjoys Mexican food 3 times a week when home, we were delighted to find this oasis in Wanaka after having been without our favorite food type for a couple weeks. The service was excellent. Both Nikki and Lucy treated us with respect and appropriate levels of... More

The fajitas were not freshly cooked just reheated in the oven. (About the worst fajitas I ever had!) The guest next table was complaining about the food as well. The noise level is incredible. The service was chaotic and the table was not properly cleaned and remained sticky. I definitely would not go there again. The two points are for... More

The Fajitas are cooked to order, and never re-heated. Can't do much about other noisy guests, and I wish I knew more about what you mean by the service so I could respond, but if it was as noisy as you say, I guess we were pretty darned busy. Sorry you hated it so much. More

So, let me just say that I am picky about my Mexican food. But I am pretty happy with lots of cheese on anything. Anyway, the ingredients seem fresh and tasty and the drinks are good. You cant go wrong with their happy hour drinks and bites. However, when having dinner it just fell a bit short, especially for the... More

Thanks for the review. We'll often tweak the menu on request, but August is our busiest month of the year, and there are times we just have to go with the menu as written. The Salsa Verde is a garnish, and used as such, the same as the Salsa Rojas. More

Simply put, Amigos has great staff, great service, a great environment, but most of all great food at great prices. Easily the best place for a meal in Wanaka, hands down.

A great easy going restaurant with fantastic authentic fresh Mexican dishes and a tequila list to match. Affordable good sized portions and a nice variety of dishes which come to the table both quickly and nice and hot with just enough spice. Friendly service with nothing being to much trouble. We'll be back for sure.

We look forward to our visit to Amigos every time we travel to Wanaka. Amigos has a wonderful warm atmosphere, good service, great food - excellent value for money. The menu gives you plenty of food options to choose from and they have a nice range of tequilas to try. Make a reservation to avoid disappointment.
