Cool staff, cool atmosphere, and amazing food. Best ceviche we have ever had, loved the beet app (and I don’t even like beets), great scallops. Everything was really unique and an amazing menu overall.

Very busy so wise to book. Tapas style with plates to choose and share. All very tasty and reasonably priced. In the village so lovely to walk through town before and after eating.

We had terrific tapas at La Rumbla; everything was delicious. The service was excellent and the bill didn’t require me to book in to the nearest hospital to sell a kidney! Highly recommended.

Great place for dinner in Arrowtown, in fact worth the drive from Queenstown for the experience. It has a very professional bar with an interesting cocktail menu and capable of delivering the classics as well. The tapas menu is diverse, which made choosing challenging but...More
