About Escondido

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 lovely evening , food was amazing and service was fantastic. We were a large party and the food all came out together and we didn’t have to wait long..love the buy one get one half price on a Wednesday it makes the evening even more brilliant to have cheaper cocktails with a nice hot meal. Definitely going again!

Food was excellent and service was good - cocktails were nice just couldn’t fault it. Only thing was that they had changed the menu, not that that’s really a problem.
