I have walked past Cafe des amis regularly for the last couple of years in the evening, and it is always packed out. So myself and a friend thought we would go and check the place out. We could see why it was always packed every time we passed the window, the food is lovely, the service was good and... More

The food at Cafe des Amis is good and has been so every time I have eaten there. But what makes this place even better, is the atmosphere. We had a great time.

We always seek out Mexican restaurants wherever we go, and this is one of the best we have been to. The selction is varied and the quality fresh, delicious and excellent. All washed down with superb mojitos.

I give this place there stars because the food is wicked but the whole experience was pretty awful! Felt like I was rushed through my meal, staff weren't particularly helpful and by the time I had finished eaten they were trying too give me the bill and get me too leave!

Had lovely family meal here, such a great place it really has amazing decor with a fun Mexican vibe, bright colours, and just a little touch of cosy with wax candles and cute window seating.

This was our choosen place to eat while staying the night in Cantebury. We had a shared starter then a main course- my partner had duck i had a chicken burito. The food was very nice and the service was good. With drinks the bill was £60 which was a tad on the expensive side.
