This place is great fun in the evenings..the waiter pulls random girls out of their seats to dance with. Food does the trick.

Went on a weekend. The staff were grumpy, maybe they were in a bad mood, but was definitely not service with a smile. Food took a while to come but was quite good. Fajitas were nice. Cocktails were ok, you get a lot for £7. Shame about the service - they were practically shooing us out of the door at... More

Came here on Monday and the food was amazing as usual! The food is very good value for money, especially the nachos which are very large. We decided on having 4 starters rather than a main and it was all perfect. The only down side to this lovely meal was the fact the frozen cocktails (which were also massive) were... More

Fantastic food and drink the best Mexican around. Food is great value for money, the nachos are the best I've ever had and come in a huge portion costing only £3ish. Drinks are also great, the frozen margaritas are to die for and are also huge, however are fairly pricey at £6/7. On the whole a great place very good... More

We visited Desperados on a Sunday lunchtime with a member of the family who wanted a Sunday roast and the restaurant obliged. The place was practically empty and so getting a table wasn't a problem. Apart from doing Sunday roasts (to keep those happy who don't do Mexican), the restaurant does standard Mexican food served with Mexican beer or cocktails.... More

Good place to go with family or friends. Has a bubbly atmosphere serving nice cocktails and reasonably priced food. When you book tell them if you're celebrating a special occasion and they will get the sombrero out and sing!

We celebrated a birthday and took the whole family there. Had the most amazing lamb cutlets and all the food was really good. We were given sombreros and took some unforgettable shots. Then the cake with the candles was brought in with music and fun. Great experience!

Me and some friends went here for cocktails. Instead of explaining the deal we wanted for 'buy one cocktail and get one free cocktail' they rudely stared and mumbled that we had to pay full price for both because what we wanted to eat didn't justify the free cocktail. We felt they would go and talk about us and rush... More
