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.

We enjoyed a night at AmiGos recently. Lovely staff. Very friendly. Enjoyed the food and the experience. Restaurant looked clean and cared for. The food was delicious though a tad expensive for the size, but that's what you expect in a tourist town. Same with the drinks. Would have liked clean cutlery for the main meal.

We love it here, always a good feed at very very reasonable prices. Get a few different dishes between your group and try a bit of everything. Topped off by Churros for dessert.

The mexican food taste's weird. having travelled around the world, I have had better mexican food in many other places. The servers are nice and polite, but the food is some kind of a mix of kiwi/european/vaguely mexican. I would avoid this place if you are expecting good mexican food.

Right from the start- warm smile, welcoming waitresses, food came quicly despite the restaurant being busy. They checked that we were happy with everything- which we certainly were. I had the soft tacos with grilled prawns & also Cajun chicken in the other. My husband had the steak- all were delicious. Well done Amigos!!!

Visited on a very cold March evening so had to sit inside. Food was pretty quick in getting to us. Quite tasty - certainly large portions, service was very efficient and friendly. Kind of "fast food" Mexican.

I'm picky about mexican food since I'm from Southern California. Good, creative food. Authentic sauce. sizzling Fajitas and generous serving of Chicken Enchilidas. beer from the local brewery. very friendly staff, and friendly customers, too. I liked the sombreros, (Mexican Hats) good idea!, tourists love them for photos.

Great meal, more economical prices and modest portions. Very nice meal, good attentive service. It was lovely but very hot sitting outside so we enjoyed the mexican hats to shade ourselves. Even though it was very busy, service was pretty quick. One of the better meals of our stop in Wanaka.
