Located in the heart of Folkestone’s creative quarter, the newly established El Diamante is a jewel in this vibrant area’s crown. A café by day, this unassuming dining destination transforms into a warm and inviting tapas bar in the evening, enlivened by traditional Spanish music and friendly staff. The team here is truly passionate about tapas, which really comes across in the quality of the fare on offer. Highly recommended plates include crispy fried whitebait, decadent deep-fried feta served with cranberry sauce, and gabanzos con chorizo: a lightly spiced concoction of chickpeas, onion and chorizo in sweet Spanish sherry. The venue also plays host to a Sangria night offering French bread and alioli, mixed olives, patatas bravas, meatballs, paella, Russian salad and a jug of Sangria for two, all for just £25. El Diamante is the perfect place to sample authentic Spanish cuisine with friends and family alike, so be sure to stop by for an unforgettable Spanish fiesta.
