We’ve traveled and eaten great meals all over the world, and live in a foodie city, but our dinner tonight at La Rumbla could not be beat, it was perfect start to finish. We had a blackberry cocktail, ceviche, green salad, seafood in tomato sauce, and lamb. Each course had fresh ingredients, balanced flavors, beautiful presentation and creative sauces. The service was friendly and well timed and very attentive. If we had another day in town we’d go right back again for dinner.

Lived in Queenstown 3 years and finally got to check this place out. The food was great and our waitress too but I felt they were understaffed as you could see the pressure! You feel like you have to rush your dinner to have the next people sit down

Lovely little restaurant - it was a little disappointing that I had booked and confirmed a table, only to arrive and be told to wait to be seated - we waited for a fair while, thinking that they had forgotten about us, then we were virtually thrown at a table in the corner, without any menus, left wondering whether we get any dinner at all. So not a great start to the meal. Luckily the food made up for it and was delish - once we finally received the menus then the service was great as we had transferred to the table staff.
