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.

We enjoyed virgin fruit margaritas with our meal. This was an excellent complement to delicious enchilladas and nachos. The portions were very generous and the meat tender and spicy. We had a pleasant view over the mall. Overall a very enjoyable and filling meal. Excellent value!

This was our first experience with First Table and we had a great family meal at Sombrero’s. Great food, authentic and cozy atmosphere and great staff. And the Margaritas are epic!

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.
