The Latino Restaurant, located on Chilwell Road in Beeston, Nottinghamshire, has closed its doors 18 years after first opening.
According to Nottinghamshire Live, 19 months of tram works, which closed Chilwell Road, increased “competition from new restaurants opening in the area”.
The restaurant announced the closure on Facebook and said: “I type this with a heavy heart, with love and regret. After almost 18 years, Latino Restaurant is closing. We began this journey in 2001/02, and it was the best thing we ever did, our family has grown up through Latinos.
“Our memories will never be forgotten. We want to say a massive thank you to all the customers that have stuck by us from day one. Through tram works and roads being shut preventing access to Latinos, the support was there.”
It added: “Latinos was more than a business for us, as you know Tony and his girls worked together in this family business to make Latinos what it was. Thank you to all staff that ever worked with us, and again thank you to all our fantastic customers.”
