Mexican grub so authentic you'll think you're in Guadalajara

Tequila is what gets BarChick out of bed every morning, she’s partial to a quesadilla too! So she was ecstatic to discover Santos, this small but perfectly formed Mexican hangout. The staff are super friendly and even more, Mexican. The bar is right at the back, and you’ll be unlucky not to find Carlos behind it, you won’t miss him either (you’re looking for the big guy with the huge beard). He knows his Mescals from his Margaritas, and has a big list for you to choose from! Bar Chick loved the Margarita Santo, and obviously the Margarita jug! As for the tequila list, well Carlos is just showing off, and we love it.

If you’re into your beer, then you’ll love the selection, they have 7 Mexican beers alone. This place is all about the party, they have decks by the bar in the evening from Thursday to Sunday - they move the chairs out the way and it gets a little crazy. Annoyingly the neighbors’ complained so it’s not open into the night (shuts at 11.30), but come here early as it’s the perfect place to get you going. The food is great, not always super speedy but BarChick didn’t care! Plus it's cooked by Carlos’ brother Fernando, the other half of the brain behind Santos. Order lots as one plate was not enough, but each dish is perfect for sharing, you can also get take away and delivery...Salud!
