Gordo's Story

Rafael, better know as El Gordo, is our Head Chef and Gordo’s namesake. His experience as a professional chef in Guildford, coupled with his love and passion for cooking and entertaining, means Rafael has created an exciting menu marrying the best of British produce with the authentic flavours of Mexico.

Gordo’s was inspired by his travels around Mexico, experiencing the colourful culture so deeply rooted in its food, from vibrant street food to centuries-old regional recipes passed down through the generations.

He wanted to bring the sights, sounds, and most importantly, the tastes of authentic Mexico, that he fell in love with, to the heart of Guildford.
