We had a terrific dinner here recently. The staff were very attentive indeed and orders were taken quickly. Our son was given colouring to do and a pencil sharpener appeared as soon as we noted the pencils were broken! Food arrived so quickly that it beat our drinks - that was remedied immediately and later, the drinks were free as... More

We had a great last night in Wanaka with friends at Amigos. Walked in on Saturday night without a booking to find the place packed. Oops. But the maitre'd had a look around and managed to find us a table that was just leaving, so we were off to a good start. While we waited at the bar we got... More

We went there on a Thursday evening and it was rather busy. We started with some drinks and I think the bartender forgotten some sugar syrup in our caipirinha but that was quickly fixed. For starters we had the tacos, a pork & a fish which was pretty good. I liked the fish and hub enjoyed the pork. The spicy... More

So, this is a hard review to write as I try to be fair and realize that a bad review can really harm a business. My companion's food was OK apparently, even though they did get the order wrong initially, so that's a plus. They seated us on a Saturday evening so that was nice. I ordered a veggie burrito,...

Two nights, two very different experiences. The food was great the first night and good the second. It is always busy so I advise booking. The kids menu is good however a little more effort could be put into the foods presentation.

Very friendly service from the Maitre'd. Busy, social vibe which was great. My soft tacos were very good. Lots of options for the kids as well. Would recommend.

We came in early after a day up the mountain - middle of school holidays so thought would get ahead of the rush. Very welcoming on the door and quickly got us sorted. The kids loved the food (good kids menu) and suffice to say no one went away hungry. Has edged out the others as the destination of choice... More

I think this place is probably often amazing... It just wasn't on the day we were there. The Tortilla whilst delicious was cold and the caramel sauce on the dessert was burnt. Amazing location, super friendly staff and great vibe but unfortunately it just didn't quite hit the spot for us on the day we went.
