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... read more

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.

The Restaurant has a nice setting with lovely garden seating when available. The Food was tasty - felt a little overpriced for portion size. Staff were friendly but not enthusiastic and the service was a little slow.

The service was a little off from the moment we arrived, we didn't have a booking but didn't think it would be an issue at 6pm. We were shown to a table inside and told to sit there we had to ask if we could sit outside instead. We ordered drinks and food, drinks came out wrong but did get... More

Took the family on a very hot Wanaka evening. Atmosphere was good, staff were keen, and fit out sync'd well given its the old THC. Meaning it's hard to put Mexico into 1960's NZ design! Though the fan in the ceiling was spinning in the evening sun which made the whole Resturant flicker like a night club, and this became... More

I can't believe the good reviews this place got. When we went it was terrible. The waiters wanted to be anywhere but at the restaurant. The service was so slow the ice in my drink was melted before it arrived. There were 4 in our group and not one of us liked our food, and neither did the couple at... More
