“not bad but i was expecting a lot more”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

I have read many nice comments for this restaurant but despite the look of the dishes (presentation) was really nice and innvoative and unusual expecially for mexican food the taste of the food was really giving the idea of frozen food. The staf was nice and the atmosphere was ok.

“Expansive. Not that good. Wont go back.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2013 via mobile

I wanted argentinian food and it was the closest restaurant. But we were alone in this place. Staff was... strange and didnt look very aware of southamerican food. It´s so expansive for what it is. Wont go back unless it´s free.

“A Brussels taste of Latin America”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2013

Los Ponchos has Mexican and Chilean specialities on the menu as well as meat from Argentina and wines from Chile. Centrally located in the Chaussée de Charleroi on the 92 tramline, it has an intimate atmosphere and elegant décor.

We started with a Pisco Sour and Margarita respectively and they were good. We both ordered Ají de gallina. While the chicken was not shredded as it normally is, it came in a delicious creamy sauce with a hot after-taste. We had a bottle of wine from Argentina to go with it.

Total for two: 73 euro for cocktails, main courses and wine

“Good food good atmosphere and great wine list”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2013

Was pleased that it was more than just Mexican food also Argentinian and Chilean as well. I had seafood empanadas and a meat beans and plaintain dish which was lovely. My husband had meat empanadas and an Argentinian entrecôte beautifully cooked and very tender. The Malbec was an excellent choice. All in all a nice experience. I tend to agree with the other reviewers who think this is a nice place - don't go if you are expecting tex mex fast food!

“Our favorite restaurant for the last 8 years!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2012 via mobile

The food keeps improving all the time reaching a Michelin * level. Everything is freshly made with premium quality ingredients. And the presentation is again exceptional. They have a fantastic wine collection and always happy to help you choose the best wine with the selected dishes. Last, great friendly service!
