The food was good and a good choice. The problem is the service. The barman obviously doesn't want to be there so why put him in front of clients??!! Hospitality requires staff to be hospitable, greeting and dealing with customers. He failed on all points. The thing I struggle with is the number of establishments that market themselves to a...

Good food! It was ruined by the waitress and the bar man. The waitress told us we needed remember number for our order. We said we wanted to share our meals but she seemed annoyed at this and said we had to do it her way, but then couldn't remember the order and the number correctly. She treated is like... More

Good food with amazing views and a fun atmosphere but quite expensive for Mexican food. If there hadnt already been one other diner sitting at the table it would have been impossible to know if they were open or not. Quite poorly advertised

Me and my boyfriend love this place and love the $5 taco deal a lot. Such fresh ingredients and lovely staff. If we're ever in wanaka again we will be back.

We stopped by here and were pleasantly surprised at what was on offer on the menu, we had a pork dish and a lamb dish, both plates were very clean by the time we had finished, great flavours and cooked perfectly. We couldn't leave without getting a dessert and that was yummy too. We left feeling full and happy. Recommended

The food was great. Especially the squid and fish tacos - highly recommended. The bar stooled tables added some atmosphere and the waitstaff were friendly and very helpful with suggestions on the menu.

We were seated pretty quickly for dinner without a reservation which was good. Sat at a high table which wasn't that comfortable for eating however that was expected without a booking. Food came out in a decent time frame however wasn't anything special to rave about especially for the price.

This place must have been updated since I was here last winter and for the better. Less tacky interior and more bar space. We turned up earlier than we'd booked and were well entertained by the guy behind the bar. This guy knows his tequila!! Extensive array of tequila options and food of a quality I haven't seen since travelling... More
