I'm a BIG Mexican food fan, and this meal was up there with the best I've ever had Staff were welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable about the food, helpings were a good size and the beer choices good. House margherita went down well with my wife.

It wasn't possible to get a table for dinner as a drop in, so we booked for the next day (Christmas holiday period). The only criticism I can make is that the evening sun was beating through the window with enough heat to be uncomfortable, but that's hardly a complaint.

Go there, you won't regret it.

We picked Amigos somewhat by chance, and had a really outstanding dinner. Very well prepared, very tasty, and service was quick and prompt. Had a fun conversation with Nicky about being from the States. Very much recommend looking for this one on the 2nd floor a little north of downtown.

The service and atmosphere are great. Elevated off the road with nice views. The night we went the weather was balmy and with the windows thrown open we had a lovely breeze. Overall we thought the menu was more interesting than the usual sort of "standard" mexican fare we're used to seeing in restaurants back home in OZ. After receiving a complimentary tomato salsa and homemade corn chips we decided to start off with a selection of dips. Salsa verde and chilli con queso were delish and Waz "the kitchen guy" was generous enough to pass on the recipes. Mains were just as yummy and presented very nicely. We'd definitely go back and recommend it to others.

Fabulous service, and margaritas. Food was truly authentic Mexican, well prepared and presented. A credit to the chef and owners. Worth the trip across the Tasman for another go at this, excellent!

I have been to Wanaka 3 times over the past 4 years and Amigos has been amazing every visit. The staff are great, friendly and helpful. The food is always to a high standard and the margaritas are to die for! Everyone should visit Amigos if your in town.
