I love Mexican - we make our own pulled pork & tortillas at home. And Amigos is just as good ;-) meats are all slow cooked and divine. All there food is tasty and fresh. Great kids menu too. The churros looked amazing. I was worried that it wouldn't be as good as I recalled (5 yrs ago) after reading... More

I'm no big Mexican foodie, do was indifferent coming here. The atmosphere is very lively and the fire and sombreros are a good touch. The waitress was terrific. The food was very good if a bit slow coming out. May come here again.

Great food, awesome service and excellent value for money. Great place to go for some spicy hot food and margaritas after a day skiing.

Excuse me? $25?? No sides??? Burritos at Amigos are $12.90. They come with rice, salad, salsa, sour cream, jalapenos and various sprinkled garnishes. Clearly stated on the menu, look at the website. They're filled with meat, beans and cheese, and wrapped in an 8" tortilla. I've no idea what or where you're talking about, and don't appreciate you're trashing my... More

Someone mentioned "icon" below. I would have agreed with that up until AmiGos relocated. The place just isn't the same anymore. I suppose the food is still OK but there is no atmosphere whatsoever. It's like eating in a hotel restaurant. AmiGos was always our first port of call in the past. I reckon we'll give it a complete miss... More

Too the kids and all were happy. The fireplace was roaring (was cold outside), the service excellent and food good. A little pricey but kind of expected because such a tourist are.

We visited Amigos last week with my grandsons, the food was fabulous and good menu, there was kids menu for young ones and coloring competition for them also. Nice local wines with your meal makes it a perfect meal In the day the view of the mountains is amazing if you sit outside

Relaxed and casual atmosphere, fantastic kids menu, friendly staff, best value for money dining out in Wanaka, the new location, premises and fitout really have boosted the profile of what is a Wanaka icon and a "must do" for visitors and locals alike. Our favorite restaurant in Wanaka.
