We had a lamb stew made with achiote, jalapeno, orange and lime juice which was served with rice, delicious fresh salsa and a green salad. Incrdible flavors. Desserts were also fine-try the mango sorbet.

Booked a table the day before, online - so much easier that phoning ahead. We were there with another couple and had the tortillas with sizzling pork belly and the seafood paella to share with nachos to start while waiting for the paella. The ambience of the restarurant is fabulous with music in the background and the decor - although it was a Thursday the place was packed which is always a good sign. Staff were very attentive - and they do 'virgin' cocktails (alcohol free) which is great for me as a driver. Have eaten there before and have never had a bad experience. Highly recommended.

Went here with the family for my birthday,the food is always excellent & plenty to go around.Have been on several occasions as we live fairly close by.Would certainly recommend to anyone visiting Canterbury.But as far as authenticity goes you would be better off going to MEXICO for the real thing.

Cafe Des Amis is a very popular mexican restaurant which deserves all the praise and hype it gets. Opt for fajitas and you will definitely never have tasted better. Service is friendly and quick and the whole place has a fantastic atmosphere. Very reasonable prices. On this occasion I had a fantastic spacious window table which topped off an absolutely perfect meal.

still quite good and much better than most, after all these years. unfortunately the last time we went the food was a little disappointing, not up to its usual standard. but i am sure that it was just an off day. still recommend it to anyone.
