Las Delicitas IV, 19553 Mainstreet, Parker, Colorado 80138, USA

Las D outMy friends, my husband and I were enjoying a visit to the lovely town centre of  Parker, Colorado, USA. In the evening, we decided to stop for dinner instead of having to cook when we got home. Our friends suggested Las Delicitas IV, they had eaten there before and enjoyed it. This hidden gem has real authentic Mexican food. The food was pretty inexpensive and the service was fast so despite that recommendation, my husband and I did not have high expectations. We were wrong. The food was delicious! This is a bare-bones, family-owned local chain spot that serves delicious food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.Las D in

The decoration is simple but everything in Las Delicitas IV is spotlessly clean. Everyone in the kitchen had a hairnets. You could see them from the dining room. Also the members of staff were all friendly and helpful. We experienced great customer service. This really made us feel valued as guests: it was so good. Access for disabled people or those with mobility problems is easy too.

Las D foodFood here was also excellent. The salsa was amazing, very tangy and tasty. One of our friends had a burrito and I had the guacamole tostadas. I ate some of it with a spoon so I did not miss any of the delicious guacamole. My husband had a combo and loved everything. The portions were very generous too!  The different entrees had strong unique flavors and the beans were very good too. Despite the large portions we shamed ourselves and made room for fried ice cream puddings: lovely!

Las Delicitas IV is definitely a Mexican restaurant in Parker that produces delicious food and values their customers. I highly recommend it.

Romeo and Juliet’s Inn, Kilbirnie Road, Dalry KA24 5JS, Scotland

Romeo and Juliet’s was formerly a restaurant in West Kilbride, however, at a rent reveiw, rumour has it, that a greedy landlord forced the closure of that little gem. This was to the detriment of the village, and probably also the landlord as the building remains empty. However, the business was to rise again when the owners of it took over the former Dalry Inn.  This required a major refurbishment, which was undertaken and the restaurant has been taken to the locals hearts.  It is rumoured the rooms above the inn are also being refurbished, but more gradually.

So my husband and I and some friends decided to give the new re-vamped restaurant a try.  We were delighted to be able to park easily and entry is easy for all.  We had booked a table as we had been warned that booking at the weekend is essential.  However, it was 7pm on a Saturday night and the place was almost empty! We were very surprised.


The dining area was spotlessly clean, as were all the facilities.  Certainly the dining room is huge.  It is decorated in a minimalist style and, as it was so empty, it felt a bit like walking into a barn.  For some reason that was not entirely clear we were seated in a corner far away from the staff and other diners.  We wondered if they were expecting a late rush of customers, but none materialised.

The menu was varied but not very imaginative.  Portions are certainly large and filling but my husband and I found the food a bit too salty.  I was disappointed that my gin and tonic was served without ice, although the waitress did go in search of slimline tonic.  I suspect a lot of the food is frozen (like chips, onion rings and so on) and the puddings did not taste home made but were very tasty. However, the food and drinks are competitively priced and we did all enjoy our meal.

images We were the last diners to leave the restaurant and I did get the feeling the place was closing down round about us with the staff staring at us and wishing us to go home. This was an odd feeling at before 10pm on a Saturday night and it made me uncomfortable. Despite this and with qualifications as stated, I have no doubt we will use the Romeo and Juliet Inn again.

Travelodge Waterloo Hotel, London, England

We got a really cheap rate at this hotel during a Travelodge sale. It is conveniently situated a few minutes walk from Waterloo Station, London, England. The hotel is clean and the staff courteous. There were slight issues of detail in that there was no toilet paper in the en-suite and only one set of towels although we travelled as a couple. Still, these were put right (the receptionist handed us the missing items to take to the room)!


The room was spotlessly clean and the hotel is close to Waterloo Station and underground, so it was really convenient.  I would use the hotel again, whether or not it was on such a bargain rate.
