Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The restaurant is absolutely stunning, the food is gorgeous, so much variety and really good if you’ve got dietary requirements, the manager Louise was so helpful and kind, lovely to talk to you. Would definitely go again.

Helpful waitress, good selection of food. Loved the tempura prawn, so tasty. Good selection of drinks, music was crazy loud so did ask to turn down slightly. Which they did thankfully.

I have never had such a bad experience. We booked this place for my parents and my sister for my birthday celebration. All the staff were so nice except the one at the counter. OMG such a disrespectful staff she was. She had no sense...to talk. I could feel a sense of racism here and it's true. Last minute my partner flew from Sydney for my birthday, so we were 5 people now. I told this lady at the counter that for the 5th one we can pay in full and for 4 we can go with the 1st table discount. This lady at says that we cannot dine in the restaurant as we are 5 people. I clearly told her that we do not need discount for the 5th person, she says the 5th person cannot sit with you and will have to sit in a separate table. What a shame in her hospitality standards. Finally with the help of other staff members we could have our dinner. At the time of paying the bill, she again started an argument and when I tried to explain her she just says that I don't want to listen to you as I am talking. Seriously as a customer now I have to listen all this from the staff. C'mon lady grow up and keep your unprofessional attituxe with you as in NZ this is not gonna work. What a bad experience here and seriously thanks to that rude and disrespectful lady for ruining my birthday celebration. I seriously owe a refund from the restaurant for this kind of behaviour.More

Popped in to Margo’s for an evening meal whilst in Queenstown wanting a change from the normal menus…really enjoyed the meal. Our server Joe, was great, and talked us through the menu in detail so we knew exactly what to expect! Food was great, and...whole experience was fantastic.More

Fantastic range of vegetarian and vegan alternatives. Normally mexican for a person who can't have dairy can be extremely difficult, but not at Margo's. It was so refreshing to have multiple options and alternatives available. Pricing is a little more than mexican street food, but...we all had a great meal here.More

A delicious meal and great service to go with it. The mushroom taco was a taste sensation. Would definitely go there again when in Queenstown.

Holy this place was a step up. I had heard they had an amazing chef on board. The food was flat out the best Mexican we have had. All hand made with exceptional taste. The tempura prawns were outstanding, even the kids meals were a...step from the usual. The kids even had frozen strawberry & lime drinks 🥤 which made their nights. Thanks to the team there for the service as well.More

They were attentive to our dietary requirements, plenty of GF and vegetarian....Can recommend the fajitas and margaritas for sureMore

Stopped in for a late drink and bite to eat. Service was great - friendly, knowledgeable but not intrusive. We had margaritas, ceviche and nachos. Everything was great and the ceviche was amazing. Fun little place with a good vibe.

We're not picky eaters but we love our Mexican food so we had good expectations of this place based off the reviews we read. Unfortunately it didn't live up to this. The food didn't have much flavour at all, even the guacamole didn't taste fresh...and seemed like it was store bought, the menu was also hard to understand. Maybe we just got there on a bad night.More
