Exceedingly polite staff. Quick service, and great food at a low cost.

When we arrived we were a bit lost in the cafe, which is downstairs, but the friendly staff greeted us, and directed us to a very fresh and excellently well decorated restaurant upstairs. The generous platter for two is a great introduction to a mix of Mexican dishes. Very tasty, and a very good price at just £16.50 for two people. They even had a South American beer to wash it down.

The paintings on the wall are fantastic.

We went here because the pub down the road had stopped serving food at 6pm and they recommended Escelantes. What a great recommendation.

We were staying near the airbase and wanted something different. Don't be put off by the downstairs decor but be aware opening time is 6pm (we arrived at 5:30 and had to wait) Once upstairs the atmosphere is great and we were the only ones in at the time! Staff very friendly and right level of attentiveness. Food quality is very good and portion sizes are enormous for mains (one main between two sufficient). Pricing about right. Enjoy and long may it live

The veggie chilli was excellent. Portions superb and price very good. Although the downstairs looks like a regular cafe the restaurant is upstairs, small (not too small!) and prefectly formed. The murals are excellent too. GO GO GO!
