About Wanaka Amigos
Hola & Welcome to Amigos Mexican Grill
Our Wanaka restaurant is family owned & operated just a minutes stroll from the lakefront, on the front lawn of the Wanaka Hotel.
The nachos were stacked high in a small pan which made it difficult to eat without it all toppling over. Also, all the toppings were just on the top few nachos. The brownie didn't have any taste to it. I ended up with food poisoning.
We booked for 6.30 and even though we were 4 adults we were jammed in with all of the families with very young families at 1 end of the restaurant. We like kids but to be packed in with so many loud, yelling, running, bouncing kids is not great. I imagine we were put in that area to keep the rest of the restaurant clean and unused but surely when 4 adults turn up you would imagine that we would have been put into an area of the restaurant that was a little quieter. The reason we were dining that early was because we had traveled quite some distance and knew we would be tired and we were also getting up early the next morning to go skiing. This is the 2nd time in the last few months that we have been to Amigos and have been really disappointed. We have been coming to Wanaka for many years and have regularly eaten at Amigos but we think this is definitely the last time which is a real shame as there used to be so much atmosphere but now it is really lacking .
Great restaurant, probably our favourite in wanaka. We did miss that you guys had got rid of the pitchers of sangria.
Great place to catch up with friends, buzzy and lively. Great staff and food!
Another awesome night at Amigoes in Wanaka thanks
Great place for children and to meet up with friends.
After a bad experience last time,we were pleased to see the standard was back to what we have enjoyed in the past.
Another fabulous night!! Always happy friendly service and great with kids
Love coming to Amigos. It's awesome food is amazing and service excellent. Love you guys!
In winter season Amigos is our "Every Friday Choice". If you are looking for cozy place to have a yummy meal, this is for you. Their quesadillas are from heaven ;)
Awesome staff dealing with a big group. Thanks!
Great food and service - will be back for sure.
Exceptional service from the waiter. We have to cater for three coeliac's and the staff were very helpful. Will be returning.
Wasn't made aware when booking it was a high table and chairs. I have a back injury and can't use that type of seating. Supposedly the only table available (though we could see others) was right at the front door, meaning we froze to death any time someone came in. I presume we were put there as I'd complained about the table we were first offered. Ended up gobbling down our food as we were so cold - a shame as the food and service were excellent.
We have visited Amigos quite a number of times over the last 5 years. We were seated and within a couple of minutes we realised that the restaurant had absolutely no ambiance. There was no music playing and it was really chilly. We looked around the restaurant and people were still wearing their beanies and puffer jackets. The food and service were good but we ate our dinner quickly so that we could get home and warm up. Every other time we have been to Amigos we have had a great meal in a warm and relaxing atmosphere. We were wondering if the restaurant has changed hands?
If you're after a decent feed, this is the place to go!
always enjoy eating at amigos
Another fabulous night at Amigoes, such great food and good service and perfect with children
We haven't been for a while and preferred the greater choice of Mexican dishes on the old menu. Not as good value for money as it used to be either & miss the wee complementary dish of tortilla chips and salsa that used to be provided.
Looks are deceptive, really good food and definitely worth visiting and I will again but the bed side manner of some staff was lacking. Not that they were not attentive, nor rude, it was just you were left feeling your presence was an inconvience whilst they 'courted' more 'cooler' customers who played along. But at the EOD, great food, great value and happy to return.
The is always great. LOVE going there to eat and it's kids friendly which is great.
The tacos are the best! Love the outdoor patio seating
Great service and a very relaxed atmosphere. We only visited as had a voucher to use, the prices were a little out of our range otherwise. The guy serving didn't write down the order, but took it from memory and it came out a little different to what we ordered, but no issue as the foid was still good. The Hamburger and onion rings were fabulous, everything else was served in fairly small portions.
