“Very quiet sunny Sunday evening”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2013

We chose to visit this restaurant based on the other reviews. The area around was buzzing with activity and all the kurbside bars etc were packed when we arrived, yet this restaurant was empty. We decided to give it a go anyway as the only member of staff visible was very friendly and helpful. The menu was pretty alien to us as although we visit Mexican's in many countries were are not gourmet eaters. We ordered as guided by our host but I have to say the food was quite strange and although with a fair amount of spice seemed quite bland ? Perhaps if you are more adventurous with food than us you may feel its good ?

“Fiesta!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2013

A fun, delicious evening out with GREAT margaritas! You have to reserve for a table at the weekend. The mañana service is to be expected, but is friendly and fun and as long as you aren't in a hurry, it's fabulous. Great, flavoursome food and a lovely evening out.

“Authentic, tasty & fresh Mexican food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2013

We booked a table on Friday night. I hadn't been to Las margaritas in a while but it was even better than I remembered. Food is top, of course Margaritas are great as well, wine list is more than okay and service is also very Mexican, can be slow, but always with a smile.

“Mniam, mniam....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2013

Nice food, good prices, cosy interrior and that margarita.... It's already second time that we visited this restaurant because somehow I couldn't forget mole saus. We also absolutly weren't dissapointed with the classical fajitas. I strongly recomend this place to people who appreciate mexican kitchen. You won't be dissapointed!

“Closest to authentic Mexican in the city with great margaritas but pathetic service!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2012

Having lived in the US for over a decade and eaten authentic Mexican there and on several trips to Mexico, I have to admit that Antwerp (and for that matter the whole of Belgium) is seriously lacking in restaurants that serve decent Mexican food. Of all the ones in Antwerp, Las Margaritas is your best bet. Most dishes I have sampled here have more than a semblance of authenticity (making discounts for black beans instead of refried, substitution of zucchini for avocado(!!) as a garnish, etc) and you will not leave disappointed.

If you are okay with the slow (and sometimes extremely frustrating) service, the above-average-noisy cantina ambiance and the fact that no CCs are accepted, you need to get here at least for their famous margaritas. That's definitely one thing that this place has going for it. Delicious, strong and you cant resist the fact that they serve 1-liter jugs if you are with a few friends!

Call for reservations if you want to be assured of a table. Seems to be extremely popular with the young/student crowd (given the democratic prices) on weekend nights.
