Decent plato del día

As I was in a hurry with the parking meter almost running out, I ran into this spacious, typically Mexican decorated restaurant for a very affordable (€6.90) plato del día. Nice atmosphere. Pleasant service. Busy. The free tortilla chips were warm and crispy, the salsa tasty, though for me not... read more

Arrived quite late on a cold Tuesday evening as a lone diner and was treated very well. Food was a pleasant surprise and with 2 beers I still had change out of 20 Euros. Great view of the grand church. I had the steak quesadillas.

Like a moth I was attracted by the brightly coloured lights outside. It looked like a fun spot. The wait staff wear ponchos, the light fixtures have coloured bulbs. It took a little while to place our order, but they do have multilingual menus available and the staff spoke good English. There were free nachos. The food came quickly and... More

The food was delicious I had the fajitas the chicken was and vegetables were very good. The salad sour cream and guacamole were all together in a tiny tiny pot. There was no cheese. It was such a shame as I expected all of the accompaniments to be in little pots. My husband had the enchiladas which were excellent. The... More

I had a good night here with some friends. It wasn't 'haute cuisine', but what can go wrong with nacho's? Considering the quality of food the prices could drop a little, but it wasn't a bad experience for me. Location is great, next to the Bavo-church, so get a window seat. Drink the tequilla and stop nagging ;-)

We were seated right away at a very busy time, but we never got served. Fortunately, we sat at a table next to the bar and were able to order drinks. The bartender was excellent and made great drinks. She got us a server, who came by with tortillas and menus, but never came back to take our order. After... More
