“Best Mexican Food Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant just doing a trip advisor search. This place has only been open a few months, and is well known just based on word of mouth.
We went on a Tuesday night and there was only one other (large) group there. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and always took time to visit with us despite being busy with the big group. The pop is a little different then we're used to, but so much better! (and bottomless!). We had the chicken enchiladas and the taco el pastor (pork and pineapple), both served with rice and beans. SO GOOD!!!!!! The meat was tender and flavourful, the way authentic Mexican food should be. We even had the flann for dessert (a custard with syrup on top).
We can't wait to go back and enjoy this yummy food again, Thanks Quilas

“What happened?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We went to this restaurant with a group of friends before a Kamloops Blazers' ice hockey game. We advised the restaurant about this when we booked. We deliberately only ordered a main course and the restaurant was far from full. Our meals took so long to come that we missed the first half hour of the game. The meals were OK, but nothing to rave about. Our experience was in marked contrast to many of the other comments. We won't be going back.

“Best Service in Town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We have visited this amazing spot twice now and it has quickly moved to the top of our list of places in Kamloops to eat at!!!! The home-made guacamole is made fresh right infront of your eyes with all fresh ingredients!!! The Mecheladas are my favorite drink there by far!!! Staff is over the top friendly and polite!!! A very family feeling that makes everyone feel at home and taken care of! I recommend Quilas to everyone as it a HIDDEN GEM!!!

“Wonderful dining experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

What a great restaurant, amazing food, large portions and Delmys (owner) was warm and gracious. We will definitely be back every chance we get. Quilas title as #1 restaurant in Kamloops is well deserved!
