Amazing place to come with kids

We had a group of 4 adults and 9 kids. The staff were extremely tolerant of the kids and our splitting the bill 4 ways. The food was pretty good, especially the churros. Nice atmosphere too. We will be back

Our friends were pretty stressed over a broken rental van and we wanted to shout them a meal as it was the end of their hols. We had a great time on a warm summer evening. One of our guest is vegetarian and she was happy with the choice and meal. We are locals and knew neither we nor our... More

We were sceptical about going here because of some of the reviews, but we had a craving for Mexican so just went for it. Thank goodness we did!!! Best Mexican I have ever had. The service was great, the owner was a bit of a grump but warmed up when we started talking about England. The waiters and waitresses were... More

Went with my partner and a couple of friends we all tried the Tortas (hot sandwiches with a choice of pulled pork, beef or lamb). They were delicious, served quickly by friendly staff. Would recommend

Aussie floor manager who is just too cool for himself, and needs to understand more about the hospitality industry ... Corn chips no longer made on site ...focus seems to be on pushing drinks than quality food. Smaller portions and not the value it used to be. Was once my favourite place so sad to see it has gone downhill... More

Nice place and staff but meals were disgusting. Chips over cooked, cheap cut of steak came out with what was supposed to be mushroom sauce?!?! salad looked like it should've been thrown out days ago. Enchiladas were a sloppy mess. We left most of our meals and left early.

After doing some exploring round Wanaka we were looking for a place to have a drink. Our daughter chose this place - and it happened to be attached to the hotel we were staying in. Typical Mexican though was a bit strange as it wasn't playing Mexican music. We only browsed the menu - seemed to be a reasonable choice.... More

I had the trio of tacos and chips w/ guacamole and sauces. Delightful! Friendly wait staff- A++! Seating inside or outside, great for families as kids can play outside on the grass.

We popped by this place after a jog on the lake. This scruffy looking lady staff at the door was very unwelcoming as we approached to check the menu. She handed us a menu with little to no interest, as if she was doing us a favour. All we wanted, was to get to our hotel room which is literally... More
