“Yummy mexican meal”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Lovely new restaurant in the centre of Wanaka with very friendly and attentive staff. Nice open fire to keep the place warm. Food was really good, lots of choice and very fast service. Would definitely recommend if staying in Wanaka.

“Food was great, nice open fire place..”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Tryed this restaurant out during easter, it was very busy. But we managed to get great service and the food was very nice. Been seated next to the open fire kept us very warm and so did the chillies. The staff were very friendly and seemed shocked when we lift a good tip. Would recommend to anyone going to Wanaka.

“Mexico in Wanaka”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We visited Amigos during their busiest period at Easter during the Warbirds airshow for the third time.
The restaurant has gone up-market and moved from their old premises into a great new facility right in the town centre.
The food and the service were fantastic given the number of diners and for that, we give them a "well done"!
The atmosphere leaves a little to be desired however, it is comfortable and child friendly.
We will definitely be back next time we are in town.

Thanks Brian. 'Atmosphere' is a funny thing isn't it?! I'm not really sure what you mean without elaboration... I'd really like to know what you would improve on, and would value a quick email with some specifics... info@amigoscafe.co.nz. Thanks again.

“Great food but lacked atmosphere”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

The three of us had to make our own atmosphere at this really nice Mexican restaurant on a chilly Wednesday evening, being in effect the only ones there. A jug of margarita and some nachos soon set the ball rolling and the main courses and sweets after that were all of very good quality. Really interesting to see the range of quality ethnic restaurants in a small place like Wanaka with an excellent standard of food - and this is one of them. Well worth a visit
