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.

What more could you want ? Friendly staff, great vibe, and atmosphere, fabulous service, awesome selection of choices to feast upon and the meals themselves were to die for. They delivered everything you could wish for and more. Well worth a visit. As we had travelled around in 20 days this would have to be an absolute standout , so... More

Entered this quaint little place for an evening meal. Staff member was pleasant and ushered us to our table with a view overlooking the street. Drinks order then meal order done. Meals received within bout 20minutes. Both were absolutely delicious! Staff cleared away dishes and checked if we wanted dessert or any more drinks, to which we didn't. Paid the... More

Three people, three different meals and it was agreed by all. This is definitely the best Mexican food we have eaten in a restaurant in the north or South Island. Really large servings of delicious food. Great value.

The $22 3 course Tuesday is great value. The Pulled Pork Chimichangas were great. The soup and the cheese cake were very enjoyable. he only problem is getting a booking on Tuesday, other days should be OK but the special deal is the attraction.

Unfortunately I have to agree with the numerous other less than positive reviews of Amigos. Amigos has long been one of my favourite restaurants, but something has gone wrong. The food lacks flavour. Whilst the ingredients seem to be fresh there is no zing in the dishes. Mexican food is supposed to be full of flavour and sadly it isn't... More

The $22 Tuesday is great value. The Pulled Pork Chimichangas were great, also Chicken Prawn Chimichanga were a decent size and very tasty. My wife loved the Gulf Fajitas. It's also one of our favourite places for cocktails. The waitresses were very attentive and friendly. The meals were delivered promptly despite it being busy. We look forward to dining here... More

This Mexican based restaurant is one which offers you a good meal and a chance to leave Australia for the night. The big range in meals give everyone the chance to enjoy what they eat. The nachos were my choice, and i was not disappointed. The decor inside was great, and topped by the ceiling light shades being Sombreros.

We stumbled across this Mexican restaurant, and I'm so glad we did - the range of frozen margaritas alone is a great reason to visit! I had nachos which were lovely, and my fussy partner had what he feels is the best poem belly he's ever eaten. Definitely worth a stop!

Waking in, the decor was delightful. But, to be honest, I'm a little over Mexican. Having said that, my girlfriend wanted Mexican so I obliged. As I pursued the menu it appeared pretty standard fare. Then I saw the pork belly. Now be aware, I'm a self confessed pork belly snob. I love to eat it. I cook it often... More

Thanks MuppetTrojan for taking the time to review Amigo's and posting your comments about our pork belly. This is a dish that we worked on for some time before putting it on the menu, and since then has grown significantly in popularity considering it is more traditional than the usual dishes associated with Mexican. I hope that it is something... More
