Nice restaurant, we ate in the smaller ground level section. I had chicken fajitas with the usual bit, which were tasty and spicy and husband had the chilli beef, served with rice salad. They were both good meals. We ate earlyish so my fajitas were in the " happy hour " menu, so a bit cheaper. Good service and the... More

We were in New Zealand for 30 days and craving Mexican food and Margaritas! Great margaritas, great view over the lake! Small and intimate, food was excellent!

We were looking for some place small & quiet to get away from the crowds in Queenstown. This small restaurant fitted the bill. The Mexican food was great. The waitress brought us 6 different bottles of chilli sauce to allow us to spice up our meal to the level we liked. I had the burrito quesadilla dish. Yum!

The 1st question to ask is whether to eat in the bar or the restaurant. We did both. I would recommend the bar with a set at the bench along the4 window which gives great views of the wharf area. The restaurant is decorated well and if you want to sit at an actual table this is where to eat.... More

We ate here on a recent trip to Queenstown. We dined early and so there weren't many other diners in here at the time. This meant we were able to order and be served our meals quite promptly. The meals were nice and just the right size, and a reasonable price. The service was friendly and efficient.

Loved the veg fajitas and the sauces that came with them. The only downside was that, no matter how little you put in the fajitas, they split every time.

our first dinner in Queenstown and this place was soooo good! my husband doesn't even like mexican and he was so impressed. Very traditional style food (none of this montezumas or cactus jack's type). So delicious and reasonably priced. We wanted to come back but there was too many choices of restaurant for our 5 days. We will be back... More
