The Andalusian is one of my favourite places to eat in Carlisle. I just love tapas and The Andalusian has the widest range I’ve found. There are two tapas choices £6 each/3 for £16 and £7 each/3 for £19 but of course you can mix and match.
What we ate: Deep fried brie coated in bread crumbs and served with sweet chilli sauce. / Salt and pepper squid deep fried in a crispy batter and served with garlic mayonnaise. / Hand cut chips. / Jalapeno peppers filled with cream cheese, served with sweet chilli sauce & garlic mayonnaise.
I also recommend the creamy chicken strips, pil pil prawns and the Andalusian nachos.
What we drank: It was my friends birthday so I asked the barman to make us something special. The birthday cocktail was fresh, fruity and sweet! We may have had a couple of glasses of wine afterwards..
Although The Andalusian is not cheap the quality is excellent and they do offer a great deal on main meals on Sundays where you can get two courses for £12.95 or three for £16.95. The menu has also recently been expanded to include thin crust pizzas which I am sure I will get to sample soon!
