Restaurant review: Escobar, 10 Queensgate, Inverness

Mexican classics in a laid-back setting

Escobar is home to the largest tequila collection of any of Inverness’ pubs, clubs or restaurants.

Location

Escobar sits tucked away in Inverness city centre.

First impressions

Escobar’s interiors are fairly typical of a themed Mexican restaurant, with the walls adorned in colourful sombreros and traditional Mexican folk art. It is not over the top or gimmicky however, rather nicely tipping its hat to its culture of origin.

Service

Excellent – the team were very attentive and quick to assist with any requests. We appreciated that they were honest about what they thought we would like to drink, guiding us in the right direction when they thought we were making a mistake and potentially picking out a cocktail we would not like.

Menu

A great selection of unpretentious dishes. All the classics are here, and there is no strange twists or unusual ingredients for the sake of making the menu trendier.

Taste

Truly delicious. We kept it simple with our menu picks, opting for chipotle chicken and a chicken burrito. Everything was cooked to perfection, and classic dishes we have had tried tons of times before at different restaurants suddenly tasted more flavoursome and fresher than ever before.

Ambience

A lovely, laid-back atmosphere that makes you feel welcome and at ease. We had a great time sipping cocktails, soaking up its easy, effortless ambience.

Price

We had two starters, two main courses and two cocktails each, which added up to respectable £75. Both the food and drink were of high quality, so it was well worth it!
