We wanted to have a meal before we boarded our evening ferry, we called in one Friday teatime and took advantage of the tea time menu. We were the only ones in the restaurant but it was 17.00 on a Friday tea time. The Chef was the host until the waitress came in. We found the food to be very... More

Antonio & Michelle have taken over from Escalantes and quietly renewed the name and the menu. It's the CHEERFUL MEXICAN now.

Started with nachos with... More

We visited Holyhead fr 1 day. It was 14 pm and almost impossible to find a place where have lunch. Bumped into this place offering british food and it was nice to stay there. Homemade food and high quality products. Nice family running the restaurant and very reasonable prices.

Being an American expat I'm always on the lookout and often disappointed by Mexican joints in the U.K. This place did not disappoint, food and atmosphere was nice and ranks in my top 5 of Mexican food I've tried outside of North America (a couple others are in Cambodia, Czech Republic).

My wife and I called in for lunch and we were truly surprised by the quality of the food. From the moment we walked into the restaurant we were made to feel welcome and the atmosphere was very relaxing. I ordered the Mexican Paella and my wife had Steak Fajitas. It is no exaggeration that the food was absolutely superb.... More

Arranged a takeaway buffet for our Christmas staff party.Michelle was very helpful and I left the choice up to her. Delivery was punctual. What a lovely choice of food and value for money. Everyone raved over the tasty food with a great variation including some Veggie options. Thank you for your services making it a great evening for all.
