the Mexican blankets scattered around for those chilly evenings add a comfy & cosy touch to the already very welcoming venue.

If you are only up for a light snack from the Tapas menu, be sure to try the Jack Daniels Ribs –
caramelized pork ribs marinated in Jack Daniels – mmmmm que rico!
For those who prefer a more international menu, there is a wide selection of burgers, salads, wraps, curries & more.
El Deseo is a family friendly hangout so be sure to ask for the kiddies menu too.
There is a large selection of alcoholic & virgin cocktails, all made with the freshest ingredients, a lot of love & an artistic flair.
The Kiss Me Baby made with watermelon, vodka, Midori melon liqueur, orange & cranberry is very popular.
If you are feeling adventurous, why not go for one made with the local Mexican beverage, Mezcal?
The Frida is a winner made from Meteoro Mezcal, mango, tamarind juice, bitter Habanero, pepper & brown sugar.
