Great location, in the shadow of Lier's main attraction, the Zimmertoren. This is not a posh place, but perfectly adequate if you feel like eating Latino food. Food is more Spanish-oriented than SouthAmerican (especially as we ate tapas), great collection of Rum/Tequila and the like. Wine list short but quality material (be it that the Albarino we wanted to order... More

our first visit was not a success (to say the least), and the owner, who seems to follow closely all feedback given on Tripadvisor, invited us to try his place a second time. We decided to give him a second chance, and were delighted to find a completely different place. The food was nice, waiters were kind, and though you... More

Cozy restaurant with very typical decoration. You feel as if you're in Spain. Food was excellent as well. You can tell these guys work with the best ingredients. If you take tapas, try the ribs, the meat literally falls of the bone, it is that soft!

We ordered tapas (2 ordered something else) and drinks. The drinks arrived within 5 minutes, albeit that one of them was not what was ordered, but hey,... More

I had a dinner with some friends after a nice afternoon spent in this nice, small town. We ended in this restaurant since the reviews on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately I have to say that it is over-rated in my opinion. It is not very cheap, and you don't have to expect plates full of food. The quality is ok, not... More

I've been here with some friends for an informal dinner. Prices of main dish are between 20 and 25€ and once they served the plates were quite small.
