We arrived and were promptly seated, specials were explained by friendly staff. The food we chose, corn chips and salsa for $7 which had a total of 12 chips, a little steep for a hand full of chips for 2 people, a glass cokes that were $5 each containing less than a can again a little steep for the price....

We came without a reservation and thought that we were going to be turned away because it was quite busy but not at all. the manager greeted us and gave us a nice table outside under the heat lamps and ordered drinks. Waited 10 minutes and had a table inside. Excellent service and the food was just delicious! Didn't have... More

My husband, son and I visited Amigos for dinner tonight. After a short wait for a table (where we sat on comfy couch and had a drink ) we sat at our table. Thanks to our super perky waitress Laura who was so helpful. Our food arrived in lightening speed and we each had 2 drinks. The sangria Casa was... More

Lousy service, forgetting drinks, talking about the dessert menu as we were only half way through our mains, orders coming out at different times. Along with asking 'how's the food' and saying 'awesome' before we'd had a chance to answer, pity if we did want to say something. Our entrees were also taken away before we'd finished them, we felt... More

If you are looking for a quiet romantic meal, this may not be the right place, but if you've had a big day on the mountain the portions, the flavour and the hustle and bustle will keep you buzzing. And with tequila flowing you may get your second wind... Top tip: Make sure you ask about the craft beer, which... More

There were 3 of us and we all really enjoyed our food. The restaurant was busy but we got drinks straight away and did not have to wait long for our food. Our waitress was really helpful making suggestions etc. We had a great evening and will definitely return.

We had received a discount voucher for this restaurant, and were very pleased to redeem it. We were a bit crammed in near the door, so it was just as well that it wasn't a special nor intimate occasion. The food was good, although not exceptional. Everyone was helpful and pleasant, but we won't rush back.

Enjoyed celebrating family birthday here recently with a good variety on the menu, however if can be a bit noisy. Would recommend that you finish the meal with the churros one of my favorites

The two people I dealt with were arrogant and made me feel very awkward for even placing an order. Was so pleased to see a Mexican place in Wanaka but won't be back until there is better staffing

The minute my friend and I walked into Amigos, we felt uneasy being in the restaurant. The man I presumed was the owner appeared very stressed and overwhelmed, which is understandable during busy school holidays. While waiting for a table, we ordered drinks from the bar and the bartender did not interact with us at all, he seemed more interested... More
