Great Mexican

The service and food was exceptional. Staff could not be more helpful and pulled beef and fish soft tacos were awesome. The meal prices were reasonable but the wine was a bit pricey.

Was dying for some Mexican, and then came here. The food was delish, sizzling hot and filled that hole. The staff were friendly and attentive, even though I was by myself and not likely to spend big like the other groups.

I had been convinced to give Amigos another try after already having multiple bad experiences here previously, what a bad idea that was. After forgetting my starter, and then forgetting my Main i was finally served my main just as everyone else at the table had their plates cleared, which was the most unappetizing pile of slop I've seen in...

This place is real good, and I'm from California so that is saying a lot! The fried chicken is on point and the enchiladas I had were great too. I'll be back for sure!

We're back again! Visited this restaurant 2 years ago and it was fantastic in every way. Nothing has changed. From the moment you enter, you are greeted and shown to your table. We had a variety of entrees with a couple of glasses of Sangria. Every dish was consistently good. Friendly, efficient service. Unfailingly polite, competent and good knowledge of... More

Not a bad little Mexican joint. Food is good although could be spicer. The cheap menu is good although the portions can be a bit small. Can't complain though.

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.
