“Birthday Treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

A really lovely evening with family. Fantastic service from Hannah. Brilliant food. Seated very quickly and served very quickly even on a busy night. My sisters love the place, and now i do too. Looking forward to the next time!

“The only Mexican food I eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

This is one of my favourite restaurants and I have been eating there since I was a child! The quality has always remained the same and their duck fajitas are my favourite.
I do not eat any other Mexican - it does not come close to the quality that is served at Cafe Des.
If you are visiting Canterbury, do not miss this place because it really is fantastic.

“Fantastic Food -Great Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Yet another fantastic lunch. We really love this restaurant, the food is incredible, there's great atmosphere and the staff are friendly and attentive.
It was easy to park and a very short walk to the restaurant.
I had paella this time and it was the best paella I've ever eaten.

“Tastiest Mexican I have tried so far!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

I have been to this restaurant twice, really love the atmosphere, very laid back, uplifting bright décor. The staff are attentive and friendly without being over the top. The food is delicious, authentic and very filling, the salmon dish is gorgeous encrusted with crab and breadcrumbs. They also have a menu dedicated to different types of tequila which can certainly lighten the mood of any party! Will definitely be back soon!
