We got to Queenstown after a very long drive from Franz Josef (almost a 5-6 hour drive). By the time we got here, we just wanted to get a good dinner. Sombrero fit the bill! Tasty Mexican food in a fiesta-like setting. Pretty decent selection of vegetarian options. They were able to customize some of their entrees for my daughter.... More

Went here for lunch on two occasions during our stay. The food was well priced and was very nice. The staff were very helpful and provided us with free WiFi as well as handy hints about what to see while we were in town. I'll be back!

Although Sombreros was not at all busy, the service for our dinner was slow. Server was nice and friendly but was not around when needed. Food was okay but unexceptional. They do provide a ticket to use the free wi-fi but we could not connect. This was an average experience but nothing for us to make a return visit.

We went for lunch.. it was hot is possible the best I can say. Staff were relatively friendly but not overly interested in life.
