Around the corner from Sandgate Castle, Escondido is a damn good Mexican restaurant where the hearty food does all of the talking. On Sandgate High Street, it’s a relaxing place that, once you’ve tucked into a wholesome fajita, enchilada or diablo burger, will put a beaming smile on your face in no time. There’s plenty to recommend, not least the chilli crock pot packed full of rump steak and Mexican beer, and Escondido is open for lunch as well as dinner. This is one of our favourite Mexican restaurants in the Folkestone area and reservations are absolutely essential.
Had a great evening, service was fast, food was great! Our server was so so lovely and she made our evening thoroughly enjoyable. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone, really good food at good value :)
Lovely service and friendly staff. Great to see and good selection of vegan and vegetarian options. The vegan chilli was delicious, very tasty, highly recommend.
The most amazing service we have ever recieved, the staff were really friendly. We went to celebrate my sisters 21st birthday and they were brilliant throughout! Food was beyond incredible. It was our first time here and it definitely will not be our last!
Great value delicious food. Friendly staff. We had a party of 8. We preordered and everything was ready when we arrived. What more could you want?
We went to Escondido's to celebrate my daughter's 18th birthday. We had a great night, the staff and food were very good. The only down side was, we were the only people (party of 7) in the restaurant and it lacked 'atmosphere'. However, this is not a reflection on the restaurant, it was just the time of year, just being 4 days in to the New Year! We would definitely go back :)
Can't fault the place, this is the best Mexican myself and my girlfriend have been to. Great food, friendly staff and amazing cocktails, we visited on a Wednesday as Escondido offer 2 for 1 cocktails which is great value. Not the Mexican around but you do pay for quality here.
Staff were friendly and food was great. Only complaint really was that the online menu was completely different from the menu actually available. My husband and I had both chosen from the menu before getting there as we knew we didn’t have much time only to find that neither of our choices was available. I also thought that the chairs were really uncomfortable! Wicker garden style chairs with a very thin cushion. Would not put me off returning though as the food and service were very good.
I had my birthday meal with all the family there and couldn't have asked for more. The service was good as usual and the staff rendition of Happy Birthday although slightly off key was a real surprise and gratefully received. Our grandchildren were well catered for and thoroughly enjoyed their meal.
Gorgeous food, very friendly staff, mindful of the fact we were on a family meal, and so sat us away from the Christmas parties taking place. Staff even dressed as a giant chilli to sing happy birthday to my 12 year old!
Amazing food, plenty of food in a portion, freshly cooked. Recommend the sharing nachos with pulled pork! You don’t have to wait long between ordering and the food arriving on the table. Very friendly staff and great value for money.
