Dover is set to welcome a new tapas restaurant in the near future, with another brand coming to St James Leisure Park.
The award-winning Kent-based Rico Sabor has announced it will open a new branch in the seaside town, in a unit once touted to be a Follies Pizzeria.
The third restaurant in a growing franchise, the store is set to be open in the unit adjacent to Marks & Spencer and the Lord Nelson pub.
With two floors, an external seating area and a rooftop terrace that offers views of Dover castle, Rico Sabor will bring a bit of Latin flair to Dover's restaurant scene.

In a press release from AS Retail, acting on behalf of the restaurant, it was promised that Rico Sabor will be, "bringing the best fusion of the most loved Spanish and Latin American dishes with the availability of al fresco dining and a bar."
In fact the newly emerging chain has seen such success it is also is set to add a fourth restaurant to its portfolio later this year, though it is not yet known where this will be.
In terms of what's on offer, the restaurant has a wide variety of ribs, steaks and seafood, alongside Mexican-inspired offerings of nachos, burritos and fajitas.
Of course, Rico Sabor will also have an extensive tapas offering, alongside Pallela, vegan options and a wide range of drinks for those wanting to kick back and relax.
It will be a perfect pre or post-film hangout for those planning to catch a movie at nearby Cineworld – especially on a warm day with the outdoor terrace.
Andrew Shepherd, Director at AS Retail, who conducted the negotiations for the new site, said: "We are delighted to have secured this fantastic location on behalf of Rico Sabor.
"The views of the castle are unrivalled and this will be an exciting addition to the catering and leisure offer in Dover”.
