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.
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 :)
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.
Great food, good, friendly service in a lovely atmosphere. I would recommend the chicken fajitas and the steak with mac and cheese, though everything we've eaten here has been delicious.
