Tapas and Moroccan kitchen all in one so there is something on the menu for everyone. It's best to make a reservation on the weekends and for large groups as this place is very popular among locals and tourists alike. End your night with a steaming fresh mint tea!

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.

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 ;).

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!
