Reviewed yesterday NEW

we shared 3 tapas and had one drink and spent about 80 or so. the food was delicious - a great treat - one that I wish we could indulge in more often but worth the taste sensations.

I endeavour to drop in here each time I am through the Wakatipu, and each time the menu has changed - there are always a few favourites there - but just when you think it couldn't get better - it does.

Outstanding food, wine and atmosphere. Lovely knowledgable young staff enthused about their wine and food. Highly recommend a visit. We stayed at Millbrook and they run a free 24/7 shuttle service in and out of Arrowtown.

We shared 4 dishes all delicious. Hard to pick a favourite- between the mushrooms or the lamb. Well paced. No room for dessert though- next time. Friendly efficient staff.

I love this place, the staff are friendly, the food is fresh and delicious. I think I have tried almost everything on the menu and it is all good. I do wish the would bring back the coconut chicken but that is ok there is still plenty of other things we enjoy.

We went to this restaurant on our first night in Arrowtown. It was superb. We had the special desert as recommended of caramelised carrot coconut ice cream and ginger crumble. What a great desert.

During our recent holiday in Queenstown, we made two trips to Arrowtown to dine at La Rumbla! It is just 25 minutes from Queenstown and well worth the short drive. We shared four different Tapa dishes and each one was delicious! If you enjoy a great cocktail, our bartender, Chris, will make anything you desire. We made two trips to... More
