We had 3 dishes between us and we were very satisfied. We ordered the jerk chicken, mushrooms with polenta and a Salad. All were very delicious and value was good as portion size was generous.

We are locals, and La Rumbla is where we go when we want something special. Tapas style dining and helpful staff. We've never had a disappointing dish, and the only problem is deciding what not to order. On the pricey end of the scale, but worth every penny.

We dined there on busy Saturday night and we're impressed with the serves and the quality of the tapas. It's not your normal tapas choices, so well worth going along if you love interesting combinations and a bit of spice. Service is good ... friendly and efficient.

Took my sister and mum here for a 'girls night' - the cocktails were amazing, food was next level and our waiter was absolutely lovely. Never disappoints, thank you La Rumbla. Still my favourite Arrowtown restaurant and 'go to' when I have family or friends come stay :) x

Just had an amazing dinner here last night, place was really busy so glad we booked. The drinks and food were outstanding and very generous portions 3-4 tapas is plenty for 2. Would most definitely eat here again.
