Last weekend my boyfriend, a couple of good friends and I went to Rotorua and trying to find mexican food we ended up in Sabroso. Now what we found wasn't just a delicious, well made mexican food, we also had the privilege to enjoy a place where the love for the Latin food and culture is palpable. Sarah the owner of this little restaurant is a pleasure to talk to and a real example of what fantastic customer service and passion is all about. All we can say is that Sabroso made out trip even more awesome. Thanks to Sarah for creating this magical space :) we will be back.

Nice hidden gem in Rotorua. Food was excellent. Service top notch. Margaritas are a must! Would recommend it if you're looking to try something different

We enjoyed our moment in this restaurant. We came in for drinks (the margaritas are fabulous) & tacos but in the end, decided to have a full dinner there. We were not disappointed, & love every bite!
I'd go back if I could!

While my meal was nothing special, it was safe and still tasty. John (the manager) is very knowledgeable on cross-contamination and the severity of preparing gluten-free items that are safe for a Celiac to eat. He cooked my meal himself and assured me everything was prepared separately – and it was safe for me! I would recommend this if you’re in Rotorua for dinner; it’s very affordable and clean too!

Thank you GoSeeGlutenFree for dining at Sabroso. Nine of our thirteen main choices on the current menu are gluten free - reflective of the diet of many Central and South Americans. We're happy that John was able to satisfy all your dietary concerns.
