“Excellent Mexican food in Antwerp”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013 via mobile

My nephew in Antwerp brought us (my wife and daughter) to this amazing restsurant as a must eat in the city.
We are Vegetetians but had some great food and drinks at this place. Every dish we ordered whether it was Nschis, Mex Pizza, Rice, or beet cocktail with Tequila .... Every fish was just too good. The ambience and service was also too good. Definitely a must vidit restaurant in Antwerp for all foodies.

“The Best Mexican/Brazilian in Antwerp!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2013

The food is excellent with big portions, this is why it is a bit pricey.
The atmosphere is warm, service is very friendly.
Every time I visit I leave happy.

“If you're in dire need of a great piece of meat, you have to go here!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2013

The food, cocktails and atmosphere are great! The only downside is that you have to be patient. I've visited the place a couple of times and you have to wait for your food. I always make a reservation and even then I have to wait for my table. Last weekend we made a reservation for 10 people and had to wait 20 min for our table. they had to move people to an other table because the place was packed. I can't understand that this happens when you make a reservation?? Also the staff isn't always that friendly and often they forget to smile and be polite.

But when you are there, you have to try the 'ossehaas' it is finger licking good and makes me want to return every time.

“Local friendly Mex restraunt”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2013 via mobile

off the beaten track but very close to the center we visited on a Friday night and luckily got a table. Very busy with locals not tourists. Excellent food and atmosphere. Slightly above ave. prices

“Fine food, but a bit pricy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2013 via mobile

We ate as a family of 4, two adults, two kids. As vegetarians, we were well catered for and the service from the staff was excellent. The food was plentiful and fresh and the portion sizes are good, but if you are with children, get them to share a main course.

It's around €20 euros per main course and a little bit more for meat dishes, so not for those on a budget.
