A fairly bland and average Mexican experience. The staff were helpful and friendly, however the meals were unfortunately underwhelming.

Have eaten Mexican throughout the world including of course Mexico and this rates up there. The trick is always to ask the host what is their speciality and what is best to compliment via their chilli selection. Something rare that others don't have on offer particularly in Hobart which is disappointing. Host (a dead ringer for retired Australian cricketer Merv... More

This restaurant came well recommended by family members. After enjoying a movie at the State Theatre it is a short walk to Amigos. Tried their special Tuesdays $22 3 course meal deal. Entree was 3 dips with a huge serve of corn chips. OK but not special. Main course was chicken burrito with Mexican rice and salad. Chicken was very... More

Recently dined on Wednesday night and maybe I should've read the reviews before going. Don't get me wrong, the main wasn't too bad but the service could do with some improvements. Chicken enchilada tasted ok but looked like it was a microwave dish that had been heated under a grill. The waitress bought it out with a tea towel as... More

We did not visit here on a Tuesday for their $22 Special but chose to give it a try anyway. After ordering a jug of Lemon and Lime Margarita (alcohol content equivalent to a 3rd world country) we chose Starters: 1) Chilli Beef Dip -nothing could be dipped in it as it was soggy, watery beans, juice & not much...

Despite a terrifically welcoming reception, staff all great, full restaurant, the food disappointed. Nachos did not include usual elements (eg refried beans or chilli) and barely had any sour cream or cheese. Meal had some of the hallmarks of a microwaved dish finished off in a grill. Sangria tastes unusual due to addition of spices. Not too bad, but not... More

Nothing good to say about Amigos Mexican or staff. Tables at front of restaurant were available but we were seated at the rear (with a family) and a view of el al Dumpster. Should have known then to up and leave. Thought a drink might make the view better or at least uplift the atmosphere of the place, so I... More

Went here early evening and we were seated despite not having a booking. Staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. Good selection of food, that was rapidly prepared and tasted great. Margaritas were mainly slushy ice, tasted weak and were not worth having. In summary, come here for the service and food, not drinks, and you could do a lot worse.
