Occupying a prime spot on Broad Street, El Capo is a cool and quirky Mexican cantina and mezcal bar with South American flair, serving delicious Mexican food with an attitude. For the last four years the El Capo team has honed its offering in Manchester’s Northern Quarter and established it as a top foodie destination.

The new venue in Nottingham has a tempting menu with a wealth of small plates, sharers and hearty mains. Expect mood lighting, a social atmosphere, and the clink of glasses as you peruse the list of Mexican-inspired tapas plates, nachos, tacos, burritos, sliders, steaks, and more. If you’re sharing, we highly recommend small plates of pan-fried chorizo, adobo chicken drumsticks, avocado tostada, and pan-fried prawns in garlic and chilli oil. The nachos are absolutely divine, perfectly proportioned and with a choice of devilish toppings. Those with larger appetites will delight in the 8oz Argentine rump steak served with a side of your choice. Sides range from cheesy chilli fries and sweet potato wedges to refried beans, El Capo slaw, and mac and cheese. The enchiladas, burritos, fajitas and tacos feature an exciting mix-and-match selection of fillings such as pulled beef brisket and delicate shallow-fried white fish in herbs and spices, and spicy salsas including chimmichurri, peach with habanero, smoked chipotle, and many more. Spicy, tangy and moreish, the food here is every bit as exciting as Mexican cuisine should be. If you’re brave enough, there’s no shame in ordering a two-foot burrito packed with your favourite fillings.

Upstairs in the bar you can drink, dance, party and celebrate into the early hours with a wide and varied selection of wine, Prosecco, Mexican lager and craft beer, dangerously good cocktails and over 150 mezcal and tequila options. Naturally, Margaritas are a speciality here, and the team also serves Marga-Litres to share – perfect for parties and special occasions.

Bringing a taste of Mexico to the midlands every day of the week, El Capo is an indulgent and irresistible treat. Daily food and drink deals ensure that there’s always something to suit all tastes and budgets. Whether you’re calling in for lunch, dinner, or just a round of drinks and flavoursome nibbles, you’re guaranteed a friendly welcome and mouth-watering food and drink.
