I was staying at the Wananka Hotel. AmiGos is attached. I had a ski injury and didnt want to venture out with my group. Several group parties were underway when I arrived. There were only a few available tables and many 'reserved' signs. I hadn't booked and still was happily made a 'table for one' in front of the real log fire - by splitting a setting for six.
I ordered the 'Chili con Colorado' - my favourite dish. A bottle of water was quickly provided. I didn't drink due to medication. The presentation was amazing and a large serving - the best Ive tasted!
I did see a regular flow of disappointed people who arrived without a booking for his Wed night. Join online before you go and you may get a pleasant surprise like I did! :-)
