Take the tapas

Best tapas in Mechelen. The menu is not that big so if you're with two persons (and up for a challenge) you can just take all the tapas that are on theres ;).

Good, yummy, Moroccan cuisine, we had to wait for quite a while, but it was worth it! Friendly staff, nice atmosphere, good location.

The staff is friendly; the interior is cosy and generates the right mood; the tapas and tajines are great. All of the above for a more than reasonable price. I've eaten here with my family, friends but also organized work diners. I have never been disappointed so far.

I travel to Mechelen often for business and there are a few restaurants that I make sure I go to when I'm in town. La Boya is one of them. Serving Moroccan food (couscous and tagines) and tapas, the food is always delicious. The service is good with most waiters speaking English and an English menu available. I'll definitely go...

Always the charming and not-too-expensive place with very nice food from the mediterranian region, especially the north of Africa. The have great tajines and couscouses, but I can also recommend some nice tapas dishes to share between friends. Very friendly service!

Superb location almost at the foot of a very tall white-limestone church tower. Very friendly and helpful staff. The best meal that we have had in Belgium, by far. Prices reasonable and they were very tolerant of our tired and somewhat cranky twin 3 1/2 year olds. Well worth a visit . We will be back if we are in... More

Nice place for a good meal. The food is Moroccan and honest. Very friendly waitresses that are most helpful. My only problem was the quantity: it was far too much and knowing that we waste so much food, perhaps they should do something about it. But as the waitress told me: Better too much than too little. Thank you for... More

We dont' go there very often, but each time we do we agree upont the fact that this is an excellent place to enjoy something else than our traditional cuisine. The starters just prepare you for one of the tasty tajines. Good quality for a good price.
