50% off at Pieno-Lleno

Bringing a host of tantalising flavours to Southend-on-Sea, Pieno-Lleno is the place to be for those hankering for some scrumptious fare.

Perfectly marrying the cuisines of both Italy and Mexico, the restaurant offers up an eclectic menu of delicious dishes for all that care to partake. Many of which are available to tastecard members at a fantastic discount when they call in advance with their card, leaving plenty in the pocket for an accompanying beverage or two.

Beginning with one of the exquisite starters, where a glorious collection of chicken wings, available with either a BBQ, lemon and herb or hot sauce, can be found alongside a delectable calamari number, and where the grande nachos make for a wondrous sharer, diners are sure to be delighted from the very first bite.

Next up, the mouth-watering main courses feature plenty from both cuisine types, with a variety of Mexican specialties working alongside an array of pizza, pasta and grilled options in a selection that promises to satisfy any palate. Particularly tempting examples of such can be seen in the hearty chimichanga, filled with peppers, onions, cheese and the diner’s choice of chicken, beef or vegetables, the glorious spaghetti pescatori, tiger prawns, squid and spinach in a chilli tomato sauce, and the tender chorizo burger.

Found on Southchurch Avenue, a mere stone’s throw away from the Southend Pier and a host of spectacular seaside views, Pieno-Lleno makes for a superb spot in which to conclude a day of exploration.

    Fantastic food, generous servings and 50% off. Only small criticism relating to cocktails. The Margherita was a bit weak (not enough alcohol) and my partner had the Long Island tea which he thought was too sweet and most likely a pre-mix. Probably could do with dedicated bar staff as the waitstaff were rushed off their feet. Would
    definitely go there again. "

    What a find! From the moment you walk in the door you feel welcome. The restaurant itself is beautifully thought out, clean, atmospheric and the food is exceptional. Generous portions, exquisitely seasoned - the perfect balance of spice and fire (you can ask for more or less of either as well!) Probably the best churros I've ever had (yes even better than those I've eaten in Spain where they're a national treasure!) The staff have got it just right in terms of attentiveness too - they're super friendly and can't do enough for you and just seem to appear when you need them. The owner/chef seems to be able to cater to all dietary whims and clearly has a massive passion for delivering gorgeous cuisine. I certainly appreciated that!
    All in all a perfect place to go as a couple or with a group of friends. Despite everything being cooked fresh to order the wait isn't too long either and with a very favourable wine and beer list to while away the time you won't be disappointed. I've yet to try the very reasonably priced cocktails but there will definitely be other visits. One last thing - Mexican coffee is to die for! Just go there, you won't be disappointed these guys deserve to be super successful! "

    " The Plano-Llano Restaurant is a lovely place to take a family of any size. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious with a very authentic taste and big portions. The quality of the food was top niche The bathrooms where clean and tidy. The chef came out to ask us how our food was which we though was very caring and showed that he was interested in our quality of dining. The atmosphere was relaxing and friendly. Would recommend to everybody!. Being quite close to the Sea front it is very accessible for tourists. I am so happy that this restaurant is my local. "

    Fantastic food, generous servings and 50% off. Only small criticism relating to cocktails. The Margherita was a bit weak (not enough alcohol) and my partner had the Long Island tea which he thought was too sweet and most likely a pre-mix. Probably could do with dedicated bar staff as the waitstaff were rushed off their feet. Would
    definitely go there again. "

    My husband unfortunately was away on our special 10th anniversary so I decided to book a table here and use our taste card .
    The restaurant was busy but our waitresses were attentive and completely at ease. Our dishes were plentiful and delicious too much to squeeze desserts in.
    A delightful experience. Easy parking in Southchurch road with a pleasant stroll.
    Can’t wait to go again "

    I visited Bourgee on Friday and was underwhelmed. Tonight however, I was delighted. A charming Mexican restaurant with character and delicious food. Excellent value with a taste card. Generous portions and all diets catered for. Another bonus is the fabulous cocktails - you can actually taste the alcohol! I urge you to give this place a try. "

    My spaghetti with prawns in a creamy chilly sauce was very dry. Was offered more sauce but was too late on. Left majority.

    Cocktails were OK. Would maybe visit again???? "

Food was hot and delightful, and the menu wasn’t overwhelming making the choices available stand out on their own. Will definitely be going again, will hope to bring friends with us next time so that they don’t miss out!!

    What a find! From the moment you walk in the door you feel welcome. The restaurant itself is beautifully thought out, clean, atmospheric and the food is exceptional. Generous portions, exquisitely seasoned - the perfect balance of spice and fire (you can ask for more or less of either as well!) Probably the best churros I've ever had (yes even better than those I've eaten in Spain where they're a national treasure!) The staff have got it just right in terms of attentiveness too - they're super friendly and can't do enough for you and just seem to appear when you need them. The owner/chef seems to be able to cater to all dietary whims and clearly has a massive passion for delivering gorgeous cuisine. I certainly appreciated that!
    All in all a perfect place to go as a couple or with a group of friends. Despite everything being cooked fresh to order the wait isn't too long either and with a very favourable wine and beer list to while away the time you won't be disappointed. I've yet to try the very reasonably priced cocktails but there will definitely be other visits. One last thing - Mexican coffee is to die for! Just go there, you won't be disappointed these guys deserve to be super successful! "
