Café Des Amis’ Business Booms after Hollywood Stars Raving Comments

Café Des Amis was recently named as Orlando Bloom’s favourite restaurant.

As reported in Kent Live Orlando Bloom said: “The food is outstanding. The best Mexican food you’ll eat. Honestly. I’ve travelled around Mexico, and I still find Café des Amis to be a pretty good match to anything I’ve had in Mexico.”

The restaurant was delighted by Bloom’s comments John Russell, the general manager of Café Des Amis said: “The feedback from Orlando Bloom was received very gratefully…It certainly has been advantageous to have such a prominent figure review us positively.

“I do believe that it has had a positive impact on perhaps bringing in some more customers.”

Bloom used to dine at the restaurant whilst he attended school here in Canterbury.

The restaurant is located at 2 Westgate Grove, Canterbury and is open 7 days a week 12pm-10pm.
