Hey amigos, join us for a fantastico time at Queenstown's original Mexican restaurant! People from all over the world have been coming to Sombreros since 1980 for our fresh and healthy food (mild to extra hot), generous portions, great prices, laidback atmosphere and exceptional margaritas.

We've got all the Mexican classics - chilli con carne, quesadillas, nachos, tacos, enchiladas, burritos and sizzling fajitas spiced to your liking with your choice of fillings...plus MUCHAS more! There are also plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free meals available and a kids menu. See our menu page for the Sombreros menus and some interesting facts on Mexican cuisine

At Sombreros we pride ourselves on providing friendly, efficient service and a bit of fun for our diners. Whether you're after a relaxed, casual night out or something more upbeat, Sombreros can deliver. It's definitely not compulsory to wear one of our sombreros while you're here but as you can see from our Sombreros photo gallery a lot of people love it!

Sombreros Mexican Cantina is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. Takeaways are also available.

Great spot with good view where we were sitting. We had a lovely night, however found the drinks very expensive and food somewhat bland and average for Mexican food! Nevertheless we enjoyed the evening and the staff were lovely.

Food was of a decent standard although portion was fairly small but good for what we paid overall. However, service was pretty poor, not a smile in sight. Came up immediately to asked for our order and when we said we weren’t ready nobody returned for 15 mins. Food was served quickly but weren’t cleared for some time after we had finished. Weren’t asked if we wanted anything else, weren’t asked if we wanted the bill. Waiting for 10 minutes before just getting up and paying at the counter. Not experienced anything like that before

We had a very enjoyable dinner at Sombreros. The service was great - they were very accepting of our slightly rowdy partners and there was certainly no shortage of food - very generous portions. A favourite for me was the three cheese quesadilla. Will certainly return.

Really enjoyable meal - fun and colourful decor with a plentiful menu of so much to choose from! Great sides of salsa, guac, extra tortillas, rice & beans etc. to customise your main. Plentiful portions and friendly wait staff.

Good to have a Vegan option, but it was not very tasty. Ok though. Service at this restaurant is great. Staff are very friendly. A nice quiet place to dine overlooking the walking street in central Queenstown

The food was really nice, but be aware if you're an average non spice eating human! It is worth checking on spice levels with the staff. It was on the hot side for us, but we might be on the weak side as far as spice handling goes.

We had 2 dishes to share: chicken fajitas (delicious) and pork enchiladas (also delicious). The enchiladas might not be a good choice for a really hungry person though. Heavy on the rice and beans and not as much on the enchiladas. That is how enchiladas are though, not blaming anyone.

Service was lovely and easygoing but still attentive. As soon as we finished our cold carafe of water the wait staff was there with another one, literally as soon as. It was groovy.

Overall a fun vibe for a wee spot, cool and upstairs and popular seeming for a Sunday!

Good food, friendly crew. Fajitas are the bomb, best paired with Ultimate Margarita!

We were welcomed and given a reserved table spot by the window which was great. The service was fast and we were served by a number of different people. The food came out quickly and was tasty but did lack some seasoning (nachos would have been great if the chips had some flavour) but had a good experience. The warm fire on a cold day was a welcome addition to our experience too!

Had an awesome night. The wait staff were very patient as we all took our time to order. Didn’t make us feel rushed in any way. Then the food is what you’d expect. Yummy Mexican. Only thing I could say is it is a bit strange that all the Mexican sides like sour cream and guacamole had to ordered separately. Should really just come with the meal.

Way too much celery in the veg fajitas. Not enough variety. Not great flavours either. Altogether a very average dinner.
