The time came in many parent’s lives when their eldest child goes to University. In our case it meant that our son was going to the University of Nottingham to read Physics. One of our last family meals out to celebrate his fabulous A Level results was at Rio Bravo Mexican Restaurant in Market Harborough one Friday evening in August.
Through the small doorway on The Square and up the stairs, you enter the Restaurant which has a nice, friendly feel and a welcoming atmosphere about it, as well as an open kitchen which is a bonus to any eating establishment in my eyes! Our waitress showed us to our table by the window overlooking the square.
To start, with our drinks order, we chose to share a portion of Nachos Sonora (corn tortilla chips with melted cheese, sour cream, guacamole and jalapeño peppers with refried beans) and a couple of portions of Loaded Potato Skins, topped with melted cheese and spring onions, served with salsa dip and Special Chicken. These arrived to our table fairly quickly, despite the restaurant being quite busy.
To follow, my husband ordered the Camaron Cozumel; king prawns with garlic, onions, mushrooms and a creamy tomato verde sauce, served with mexican rice, flour tortillas and garnished with a mexican salad.
The children and I all chose to go with the Chicken Fajitas which came served on sizzling platters with onions, peppers and served with grated cheese, guacamole, salsa and sour cream, lettuce and warm tortillas.
The meals were presented in an appetising way and were of a reasonable size for any appetite, so much so that, none of us could manage dessert. Including drinks our bill came to £79.20, which I think was a little on the expensive side, bearing in mind that we only had one round of drinks and no desserts. However, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the quality of the food and no doubt we will make a return visit as a result!
Our visit to Rio Bravo was paid for personally and I was not sponsored in any way to write this review.
