Nice restaurant with funny decorations all over the place reminding me of the crazy colorful places in Mexico, in a softer version some of the waiters had a Mexican outfit but not all of them i dont know if they were busy dancing in the kitchen or what but service was quite slow. anyway as starters we had some cocktails...

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

The restaurant is nice and roomy. Service staff was not bad. The food is not very good. The guacamole that was served was not fresh and tasted like garlic, not avocado. The main dishes were not cooked at the time if they were reheated, which makes the taste is not very good.

Um, hello, we're from Texas and to find really good Tex-Mex not only out of state, but out of the country is a RARE FIND! I don't actually recall their referring to themselves as Tex-Mex, but that's basically what it is. Fresh ingredients, terrific wait staff and excellent people-watching while you enjoy your meal. We've been for dinner a number... More

Upon entering Popocatepetl, we were welcomed by bright colours and bold prints. Exciting. I thought. The staff brought us to our table. But forgot to give us the menu. We had to call another waiter to bring us the menu. The waiting time for the food was a bit longer than usual. Our orders were ok and dessert was so... More

It was a quiet Monday evening. The food was good. The service was OK. It just didn't coincide. The beer was poor. We have been eating and drinking in restaurants and bars in Belgium and Holland where there is a wide variety of good beers on tap. This place had the worst beer choice of anywhere that we have been.... More
