A lovely meal out

This is a lovely restaurant with great staff. The food was good. We had the nachos with beef. I wasn't a fan of the pulled beef but the rest was lovely. We also had the chicken and the fish starters which were very good...watch out the fish one is spicey!

Over the past decade I have been coming to AmiGos and always leave satisfied. The service is great, Nicky is an amazing host and the food is delicious. Great activities to keep the children happy and a children's menus that my teenage daughters still try and order off. Must visit for Wanaka.

Amigoes offers exceptional value for money, especially if you dine between 4-6 for earlybird prices, if not then still getting value for money normal prices, stand out dishes are Calamari, and pork belly soft tacos, one is not enough and now 2 is not either, 3 is just right.!!! Magraritas yummy as well. 'Bookings essential. Great fun to go as... More

We often order from AmiGos - we believe they are one of the better Mexican restaurants in the south island for sure. Only issue is we ofter order to take away and every time I have to wait around 20 minutes for the food. I'm not sure whether the order is processed once the customer arrives or if they are... More

Have been here many times and this was definitely our worst experience. Waitress seemed disinterested and told us how tired and what long hours she had been working. No drinks menu provided and had to ask for water. Entrees were okay but fajita very disappointing as not enough salad for one of three. No cheese, no guacamole. Very poor and... More

Great Food. Awesome family atmosphere. The nachos are to die for. We had a great meal and got in for the early bird specials which made it all the more affordable.

Average Mexican. Kids were happy, Us, Not overly so. Slow initial service despite having a reservation. Not expensive. Plenty of other options in Wanaka so won't bother with this again.

We managed to squeeze in an early family dinner booking @ Amigos over the school holidays. The food is tasty and the kids ate everything on their plates (nice change). Great passionfruit Margarita. The service was good, but everyone seemed very stressed and a bit abrupt - understandable given how busy it gets in Wanaka over the winter school holidays... More
