My family visited Caribe Latin Kitchen while we were in Queenstown for Fall Break in April. My daughter really enjoyed her burrito and my other daughter enjoyed her food as well. I didn't really care for the purple cabbage on my taco. The seating was a bit difficult with the high stools inside. The service was very good and friendly.

Awesome variation to done of the more expensive restaurants in Queenstown. We at at Caribe a few times whilst in Queenstown. Delicious food, and with little tables outside you can watch the people go by. Highly recommended.

The food is simply great. Wish there was more variety but for what is avaliable, the value is not up for debate (maybe you get the most for your money here). Service is great and quick. For smth different, you have to eat here!

A group of us went here and ordered a variety of things. The tacos, while pricey, are huge, and we liked them. The nachos were also pretty good. The quesadilla, however, was so so bad. It had barely any meat in it, the cheese was chalky and kinda bitter, and it was smothered with something that made it unbearably sweet.... More

Went on a recommendation and if your after a burrito, this is the place to go certainly. Would say this is the main draw here as the other options are nice enough, but have had better around. On the whole nice place to go for burritos. That's about it.

A really cute lil Mexican restaurant with an extensive menu. My friend ordered a burrito which was ready in less than 5 minutes. Huge portion! I ordered the veg with corn bread, simple but delicious. The corn bread was grilled so it had a nice crunch to it.

I got the veggie quesadilla, not spicy, and was disappointed. It was quite bland and tasted a little funky. It is entirely possible it would have been a lot better if I had it a little spicy but I've had a lot of latin american food so I was disappointed.

Been several times to Caribe and I love it. Their spicy veggie burritos are the best food in QT. Never a long wait for food either

Queenstown does offer many types of cuisine from all around the globe, but not much in regards to Latin American or Caribbean flare which is a blast on flavour, colours and creativity. With the sounds of Salsa, smells of the Caribbean, the textures of the amazons, the colours of Latin America and the flavours; is to create a humble but intense composition for locals and visitors to enjoy. Our name: "Caribe Latin Kitchen". Our influence: all Latin America. Our Game: to combine the best from local ingredients and take them to a place where they dance with our cooking.
