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.

We went with a big group, we got everything pretty quick! The fish(prawn) taco was delicious and the trio of dips.. Cheese dip is epic

We go here every time we visit Wanaka. Great value for money, colouring competitions for the kids, great service, relaxed atmosphere, good, honest food and no rip-offs. Highly recommend to families looking for a relaxing evening with no stress.

We were greeted by a very angry and rude women named Nikki. From the moment we walked in we felt so uncomfortable we could not enjoy our meal. Her service was absolutely shocking.

Being Nicki's husband I'm probably a bit biased... and, since you give no specifics, it's hard to know how to respond. So. I'm going to go out on a limb here, and posit that you were probably on of 'those' guests. All I can suggest is you go to our facebook page (/Amigos.Wanaka) and venture the opinion that Nicki is...

The food was average, for some that is use to have a nice Mexican food, this one was just fine. The waitress was great!! But all my experience went down with the owner lady, she was rude, inappropriate and absolutely out of place. Next time better to do tacos at my place!! ahaha

You know it's good when they have two settings each night. We chose the early sitting and weren't disappointed, most of our group had 2 entrees each, which gave a good choice of flavours. There was a pile of colourful hats for patrons to put on and have fun. The couches were covered in rugs in a casual atmosphere. The... More

A visit to Amigos was always one of the highlights of our ski holidays in Wanaka. Alas no more. Margaritas were watery and insipid (mainly ice) but most disappointing were the fajitas. At the old Amigos (and most other tex mex) you get the platter, burritos and a comprehensive selection of condiments and usually struggle to eat it. At Amigos... More

Came for an early dinner having pre-booked a table. Nice dining room, cozy with heaters outside for smokers. The staff were friendly, but the service is not very attentive (no free tortillas like other tables, no water for the table, had to get our own menus). The food was hit and miss - deathwish wings were hot as promised but... More

Our greeting was not overly friendly, a few spare tables, but the hostess made it look like she could just squeeze us in. A long wait for first service, but then our waiter was fun, chatty and efficient. Did get the order wrong.....but with a smile. Good food, but not with raving about.
