Huge disappointment! Expected fire and got water. The mole poblano was tasteless. But the portion was huge - but I could only finish half as if tasted… nothing. The salmon ceviche? Hmmmm not a ceviche. Send in Gordon Ramsey to train the kitchen . And...a Mexican restaurant that can not prepare a normal Margarita? Only frozen ones availableMore

Love this restaurant so much! Me and my husband visited this restaurant two days in a row. That’s how great it was. The food was amazing and the portions were LARGE.

The best place to enjoy mexican food in Leuven. We went as a family of four and have praises for this place all along. Met with a welcoming smile, the staff were friendly and ready to go that extra mile to make our visit enjoyable....The food was impeccable with little extra touches. This place is a real treat. Make sure you dont miss it!!!More

Very nice latino restaurant, very good ambiance, nice music and above all very good food ! I had a succulant Entrecote. So if you want a nice break during your visit in Leuven, this is the place to be !

I'm sure that you can find a better Mexican restaurant. We were 7 persons and paid about 42 euro each for some basic appetizers, a main dish without any Aha-erlebnis and a bottle of red wine who was also nothing special. Unfortunately the service was...also failing. They served three wrong main dishes and there was no real will to solve the problem. For us a restaurant in the category student /tourist trap.More

Good food, service a bit slow and didn't speak neither French nor English. And of course no Spanish ;=).

We waited over one hour to receive our food (Saturday night). Food was okay, nothing exceptional. The red house wine was quite good !

Nachos del Horno pre-starter very nice, but simple. Empanada starters were pasties: tasty but not exceptional. The highlight main was Chile Poblano Pollo, which is highly recommended. Carnitas Mejicanas very meaty but no exciting sauces or herbs. Fajitas Kip okay. Overall a nice experience, solids...and neither really good nor bad.More

Ate with my wife during lunch hours. The food was very good. I had the fajitas and my wife had a stew with chocolate sauce. Very strange but good nevertheless. The waitress was very friendly and served us quickly.

We drank some cocktails and ordered the Tex Mex Mix and a Quesada. Both were delicious. The service was rather strange. Servicing, but not very friendly. Accessible with dogs on the terrace.
