I’m not that big on churros and eat them rarely, so I’m no expert on how they should taste. What I do know is that I took a few bites then gave mine away. I found it a bit doughy and I wished Fogo was...open so I could go there for a churro. Theirs are much more crispy and delicious and not an afterthought like I thought their churros would be.More

After a long walk along the esplanade, we decided to have a quick snack at Gattos Churros. The churros were crispy and not dense and very tasty. I had some choc sauce with mine and husband preferred only cinnamon and both options were great. Prices...are good because its a relatively generous serving. Give them a try!More

If you love churros, this place is not to be missed. The Churros are freshly made and filled to order, and taste better than many that I have had on my travels around the world. The chef Anthony Bourdain once said that the best churros...he had ever tasted came from Xurreria dels Banys Nous in Barcelona. Well, in 2019, before travelling the world became limited, my son and I visited Xurreria dels Banys Nous and I can honestly say that I think Gattos churros are better. I had the Dulce de leche and my son had a plain one - they were both amazing.More

Wow I have gotta say that these are amazing we stopped to see if they were any good and ended up having one everytime we went to Queenstown. They are so good and can't recommend them enough. Great service, great location and great food.

Amazing service all around with the best churros I've ever had. The taste and the flavours of the churros are out of this world. I order the "dulche de leche" churros, which had caramel covered/coated on the outside. Based off my own experience, I have...never had a churro made this way before and I have tried churros from America (Disneyland California), Wellington, and Auckland. The taste of these churros felt super authentic with mouth watering flavour and each bite was like heaven. Thank you to the wonderful staff for the fast and friendly service.More

This place is soooo good, just happened to pass by it on my way to topping up our car parking .. this place is located across the street from the lake but towards Novotel end. Churro's are beyond amazing! Other reviews on this post are...spot on! Hot chocolate we LOVED (included orange zest and nutella - different, and delicious). It's on my itinerary next time I'm in town!More

I am not exaggerating when I say that Gattos Churros was a highlight of my entire trip to New Zealand. The first night my friends and I got these churros we could not stop smiling because the whole experience made us so happy. The churros...themselves are delicious and warm, and the flavors are incredible. I think we tried all of the flavors at some point - after we first went, we went back the following 3 days in a row before our trip ended - and all were AMAZING. My personal favorite might have been the chocolate and nuts, but it’s a tough call. These are the best churros I have ever had. The people who work here are also so so friendly, funny, and kind and really add to the experience. I cannot recommend this enough! You are missing out if you don’t go here!!! :)More
