We dined here tonight, and I must say the food was outstanding. Delicious fresh Spanish sharing plates. However I must say it was disappointing to watch two diners enter the restaurant without scanning in or presenting their vaccine pass. It was obvious that they were...locals however I don’t believe that is an excuse….it is mandatory for all NZers to do this. Especially as recently Queenstown has places of interest.More

My wife and I ate our New Year’s Eve dinner here with our daughter. What a wonderful place right in the heart of Arrowtown. Small plates with huge options and flavor mixed with wine and great service makes for an amazing night. Thank you.

The food was very nice , I’d give it a solid 8/10 , the service was also good but a bit slow. I do realise arrowtown is hugely under staffed ( thanks to jacinda aderns inept govt , but I won’t go there ) But...it was too expensive and the dishes were way to small. 2 of us ordered 4 main tapas starting at $25 each and I left there and bought food across the road as I was still hungry. Not sure what’s going on in arrowtown , but crazy expensive and poor value for money . Overall due to the cost and lack of substance I wouldn’t go back . I really hope arrowtown hasn’t los the plot !!!!More

Exquisite meal and service. The staff are all friendly and attentive with a good knowledge of the food and beverage offerings - they obviously enjoy their work and have been trained to a high standard. Great range of drinks including a wonderful cocktail menu and...great local wines. Top quality, fresh ingredients with a menu that changes with the seasons. Tapas style food makes it a great place for sharing and suitable for all appetites. A real asset to Arrowtown!More

We stopped by for an early dinner and were treated to fantastic service - the staff were super friendly and accommodating (made a cocktail that wasn’t listed in the menu) - and food (potatoes, empanadas and paella). Great place and highly recommended. Muchas gracias!

Food is fabulous and such a great vibe here. Plates are all made for sharing. Cocktails are delicious and always made so quickly! Lamb cutlets and ceviche a must order and the salads are amazing. If dining with a group the set menu is perfect...and has all the good bits!More

We had a fabulous meal at La Rumbla this last week. Beautiful cocktails to start. The tuna ceviche and beetroot dishes were our favourites. However all our dishes were creative and delicious. Staff were great. Finished with great glasses of red and dark choc truffles....Can’t wait to come back to La Rumbla and enjoy againMore

Visited on the second night of our two night stayin Arrowtown. If it had been the first night we would have returned the next night to try everything else on the menu! Everything we ate was not only exceptionally delicious but also imaginative. The lamb...cutlets came with (amongst other things) crispy brussel sprouts…. going into the meal neither of us were fans of brussel sprouts…. By the end of it the brussel sprouts were a highlight of a beautiful dish! We had two other beautifully balanced and presented savoury dishes which left room for dessert….. And thank goodness we did. Dessert was sublime. My partner had the ‘tacos’ which were small cinnamoney sweet bursts of yumminess. I had the apple tarte tartin which came with truffle ice cream. WOW! How on earth that mixture of sweet caramel buttery apples and pastry could work with the truffle flavour of the ice cream is beyond me but I LOVED it. We both did. We cannot wait to return next time we are in the area. Thank you La Rumbla.More
