We have hit up Nevados with groups and as a couple and each time does not dissapoint. There cocktails are fantastic to go along with great food and service. Big fan of the mussels, pork belly bites, tamarind ribs and ALL the tacos. If you...are a tequila fan like myself ask your server or batender for a recommendation they have some awesome tequilas and mezcals and they are super knowledgeable.More

I'd give 0 points, if I could. They don't take reservations. When we got there right after opening at 5, the sign outside said: patio seating only. The patio was only half full, and yet, we were told that we'd be looking at a 1...1/2 hours wait for a table for 2. Don't waste your time with this place.More

During a long exhausting road trip we decided to stop for dinner at Nevados in Fernie We we’re seated on a lovely outdoor patio surrounded by climbing vines I ordered a coconut ginger margarita and my husband ordered his favourite back hand or god beer...the drinks were thirst quenching after our long day. For dinner we had the family order of 3/3 taco tapas. They were a delicious mix of mahi-mahi our favourite mushroom and haddock. A wonderful dining experience I will definitely do againMore

My daugher and son-in-law live in this picturesque village and told us about this restaurant with world-class cuisine....and they were right. Our meal there last night was fantastic. We had an array of tacos and tapas, and each bite was terrific. Of special note were...the tamarind ribs and the portobello relleno - very tasty. And the tapas portions were a nice size, too - I thought the food was execptionally well-priced. We had to wait a little to get in, but it was worth it. If you are visiting Fernie, be sure to add this to your list of places to eat.More

Tapas… tiny dishes so you can try lots of things and all of those things didn’t disappoint. Service was great. Drinks were great and food was amazing. We went on a Friday night and the place was full. You can’t make reservations, so expect a...short wait or to be seated at the bar.More

I loved eating at the bar here! The drinks I had were excellent, and each dish was delicious. The patacones were addictive. The pork belly bites were incredible. I got three different tacos and they were all excellent. The chocotorta for dessert was really good...as well. If I lived in Fernie, I'd be here a couple of times a week.More

Absolutely phenomenal restaurant. Wow this would be ideal as a date night or a spot to go with friends, my family of five actually had a chance to go here when we stayed in Fernie for a family trip. They sat us in a private...little corner, so if my five and seven year-old would be a little more comfortable, and we had a phenomenal evening! Drinks were great, I did the beer margarita which was really good, just a lighter version of a margarita. My wife had the coconut margarita, which did not sound very good to me, but was really enjoyable. From a food standpoint, the ceviche was fantastic as was the pork belly. But let’s get real, how can you go wrong with pork belly?! Another stand out dish was the muscles, I wasn’t expecting great to see food in Fernie, but our seven-year-old loves clams and mussels, and they were really good. The fish taco was also really good as was the tiger shot with the ceviche juices! Highly suggest doing it! Great restaurant, great service!More

We came for dinner, and sat at the bar as there were no tables available -- usually a good sign! The latin american theme extended to the artwork on the bare brick walls of the old building. Local beer and wine dominated the drinks menu...-- apart from the 30+ tequilas! Lots of cocktails too. The Mi Bella Dama was very good, and the Dark Matter ale suitably dark and chocolatey. And my second pint, Back Hand of God, is one of the world's great stouts. The food was all beautifully presented and oozed wonderful flavours. We had toasted cornbread, kale salad, beetroot salad, shrimp ceviche and a pork arepa sandwich. Very hard to pick a favourite... Topped off with friendly service, and good value...our new favourite restaurant in Fernie!!!More

We were recommended this restaurant by the owner of Reposados in Golden (if your going to Golden you MUST eat there!) I’m so glad she gave us the tip as we had a fabulous meal. They don’t take reservations, so you have to add your...name to a wait list, by luck people where just leaving as we arrived, so we loitered in the entrance. Wei had a mixture of the tapas style dishes, 3 DELICIOUS tacos and a huge plate of cheesy nachos. The sharing dishes give you a chance to order a little of each item, my personal favourite was the crispy pork which went really well with the mountain of nachos, cheese, beans and salsa. They have vegetarian and vegan dishes, so would suit a family or group. Local beers and of course tequilas complement all the dishes.More

We came here for dinner. They do not take reservations, but once you put your name on the waiting list you are free to wander the town and when your table is ready they will text you. We had a great meal and the service...was excellent. Definitely worth the wait.More

Shrimp Ceviche (see pictures) - The shrimp was white, not pink, and crushed flat. It did not have a good appearance or mouth feel. The ceviche was mostly just liquid. Curtido (see picture) - Get a KFC coleslaw in a styrofoam cup, take the top...off and put it in the back of the fridge for a few days and then serve. Flavorless and dry to the point of almost being dusty. Service was good and it is a pleasent interior. I'm not sure we will bother to go back - I'm certain that the cooks have never eaten the real version what they were supposed to be serving.More
