“A chef's opinion!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

The atmosphere is laid back and welcoming, the staff relaxed but attentive. The restaurant looks awesome. The food is authentic delicious Mexican, and comes in great portion sizes. The tortillas come out warm, fresh and well seasoned. The menu is customisable with a lot of choice, and with a selection of many cocktails. I had chicken wings to start and sizzling chicken tortillas, both of which I asked the chef to spice up, and he did so with fresh chilli. The food was what I hoped it would be. The chilli-chocolate dessert was also incredible... We had a great night and the price was more than reasonable.

I'm the sous chef at the nearby harbourfront bistro, and I'm happy to be able to recommend Escalantes in good faith, and it deserves all the popularity it gets.
