Lovely food

This was our first visit here as a small group and we booked a table in advance. When we arrived our table wasn't ready as people were still sitting there and then we had to wait for it to be cleaned but not really a problem. The service at the beginning was lovely and the starters came out very... read more

Been here a few times and have never been disappointed by the food! Lovely menu serving excellent Mexican dishes and other standard stuff for fussy eaters. I recommend the ribs, they fall off the bone. The atmosphere is great, especially if in a big group celebrating but as it is always busy, it can be quite loud so if you're... More

Took my boyfriend to desperados tonight for his birthday with a group of friends. It was their first time there. Yet again, it was brilliant! The food was yummy - massive portions and reasonably priced. Cocktails were lovely and went down a treat. Loads to chose from. The atmosphere was fun and buzzing. There were a number of birthday celebrations... More

Just had my birthday celebration here. Food was very very good and reasonably priced. They make a lot of fuss of birthday celebrants which makes the evening very special. A great fun atmosphere. The manager is a blast!!!!!

Waiters were rude and pushing us to hurry up. It felt like the waiters wanted us to pick certain dishes in a rush. We were there to celebrate a special occasion but decided to leave after starters due to poor service and rude staff. Spoilt our evening even after booking a table in advance. Desperados Petts Wood you shouldn't be... More

Very good food, service friendly and efficient and really good atmosphere but so very very noisy we could not hear each other talk. Everyone was having fun but with a very low ceiling the noise just grew louder and louder. If you don't mind noise, it was happy noise, I would fully recommend.

I once visited this restaurant a few months ago, and had a really good time with my family, so when my friend asked me where should we go for her birthday party, I had no hesitation in recommending this place. I called the manager to book a table and asked for birthday cake- they were extremely helpful and what a... More
