I have visited Desperados on a number of occasions now and I have never been disappointed. It has a fun, bright, atmosphere regardless of the time of the day/evening. Decor is great, food is fab and very reasonably priced and service is great. Especially the waiter Mario, who is always attentive, happy, and welcoming when you visit. Will return time... More

A fantastic restaurant, delicious food and friendly staff who are great with children and can't do enough for you. A firm favourite. We will definitely be back again soon!

We visited Desperados a few days ago with a group of friends, we all loved the service from the friendly staff and enjoyed the great quality food they had to offer in their truly Mexican atmosphere. Its great knowing there is such a local yet amazing restaurant to go to and cant wait for my next visit.

We visited on a Friday night, we were a party of 13. The food was lovely portions were big, not your average Mexican food was much higher quality. Service was good and atmosphere was fun and we will definitely eat here again!

All the table and chairs in this place are so rammed together you feel hemmed in. The food was tasty and there was a good choice, but we had to wait quite a time for it. Also I do feel I have to mention the fact that the enormous 'trunk' under each table meant that it was impossible to sit... More

This is the first time my family and I have eaten here but we will certainly return. We were a party of 9 plus one baby and Mario and his team made sure we were looked after from the moment we arrived to the end of the evening. The restaurant has a great atmosphere,there were 2 other birthday celebrations when... More

This is one of our local restaurants and also one of our favourites. The food is beautifully presented and always delicious. Go there once or twice and you are welcomed as old friends. We love it!

Been here several times now and it never disappoints. Have to disagree with some of the reviews on here - the food portions are massive!!! The cocktails are also really good and work out good value if you get a pitcher. Had the sangria as well recently which was also really nice. The staff all make a effort to make... More
