Most delicious food and quick service. Hardware lane has a really nice atmosphere to it. Had a frozen strawberry margarita, cheese stuffed jalapenos which were to die for and a pulled pork enchilada. Seriously get the jalapenos (they weren't too spicy)

Go here for the atmosphere, not the food. We had an enjoyable experience here, good service, but our fajitas were very plain in flavour and the drinks, while strong, tasted of sub-quality rum. Great place to enjoy dinner on hardware lane but not if you're after excellent Mexican cuisine.

I was eating outside and was having the best burrito I've ever had. The presentation of the dish was nice and did exactly have on what I've ordered (no beans, extra sour cream). The meal was extremely tasty and nourishing. The tempranillo wine was really excellent ant the waiter was very attentive.

Hardware lane invariably offers something for everyone. This time we're were intent on something other than the 'tried and true' Italian. The Amigos menu looked inviting and the notion of happy hour (5.00-7.00pm) coinciding with our timing was the clincher. We enjoyed people watching while we sipped on margaritas and sol beers. We were pleasantly surprised with the look of... More

Although I do not visit Mexican restaurants often this one was recommended by the concierge of the hotel I stayed in and for sure was not disappointed. The staff was very attentive and nice and food good. Can recommend this place for a informal sit down lunch or dinner.

Have only eaten in Hardware lane a couple of times but well worth the experience. Amigos is the only Mexican restaurant on the strip so doesn't seem to have the usual spruikers that the others have. Service was friendly and faultless. Happy hour drinks from 5-7 and people watching on the street is half the fun. Highly recommend the beef... More

Tacos were very tasty and tasted fresh and full of flavour. Terrible sangria which tasted like spiced syrup with a slice of orange. Good service and cool vibe. Need to ban smokers though as its one sure way to ruin a meal. All in all positive experience.

Had a great time at amigos, ordered the barrito ($23) and was really tasty. Also went just before happy hour (ends 7pm) and got some great margaritas ($10) and sangria ($20 for 1L). Staff were really friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend

I visited Amigos last night with friends. I had the steak fajitas. The sauce was yum but the steak was so tough. I had to cut it with a knife and I struggled. The lettuce and avocado was limited and the rice was dry. It was 28 dollars, way over priced. I will not be returning. Waste of money. There... More

Situated in a bustling lane way with lots of other restaurants. Fantastic atmosphere, outdoor seating available where you can people watch and enjoy the music. The menu is varied, something for everyone. Great prices, large servings and very quick for your order to make it to the table! All our mains came out together and were hot and fresh. So... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
