Visited El Deseo tonight. The food was edible but wasn’t as enjoyable as we expected. The table service was extremely slow, (took over 10 minutes just to get the menu’s.) Good entertainment in the background. Overall a decent restraunt. Might return soon.😀

lovely venue, friendly staff, other food great, but pink mince meat? Never had a burger in my life that was red/pink inside, rare steak fine, but never mince meat. Maybe it's just me.

Good food,excellent live music.Service very haphazard,wine forgotten then unavailable ,table not cleared properly ,explained he was run off his feet! Don't quite know what would happen if they were really busy. Slightly reminiscent of "faulty towers."
