    Keep coming here since the first time. Food is always delicous and waiters are nice. Only problem is the slow service because there is only one cook and he is the only person in the kitchen.

    I was disappointed not to have tostitos con guacamole available that evening. The food was good but not amazing. Not enough tortillas. Waiter was nice tho. Ask for his hug! Decoration is good

    This was our first Mexican restaurant experience in Belgium. The food was mediocre, service okay, and we had to sit at the back in a poorly heated room. Oh, and they don't accept cards.

    Nothing vegan on the menu. Vegetarian dishes can't (or won't) be veganized.

    In contradiction to most restaurants in Leuven, it is not possible to get some decent vegan food here. Not even if you inform them several days in advance. :(

    Gezellig authentiek Mexicaans restaurant. Echter niet zo groot, dus best reserveren! Frozen margaritas en de nachos als voorgerecht zijn zeker aan te raden! 🇲🇽

    De frozen margarita, nachos en fajita zijn een aanrader. Van de desserts blijf je best af: De pannenkoek en de tiramix waren alleszins een teleurstelling na al dat lekkere eten.

    Alles is hier lekker en je kan hier glurenvrij eten! :-) Probeer zeker als voorgerecht - 1 portie is genoeg voor 2 - de overheerlijke nacho's!
