I live on the other side of The Netherlands and we go to Rotterdam only to have dinner in this place. Their Mexican food is THE REAL DEAL! The best tacos enchiladas and tortillas. Other Mexican restaurants are more tex-mex or what I've called as "dutch-mex" but this one really sticks to the traditional flavors. I recommended 100%

I like the concept, eating a taco while having a nice conversation. Accept the taco's itself weren't that much. I had two different kinds of veg taco's, but it hadn't much taste to it.

Dear guest, thanks for your visit! Sorry you didn't like our veggie tacos, we'll take your comment to our kitchen, if you come back I advise you to try our veggie enchiladas, they are an explosion of taste! We have several other veggie dishes, hope some will match your taste! Kind regards, Daniel

In the almost 8 years of living in Rotterdam and traveling throughout the Netherlands and Europe, I finally had a satisfying mexican meal! Perfect guac, fresh tortias, great margaritas. The tacos and the main courses were off he hook. I am so happy this place popped up in Rotterdam and I found it. is an easy walk from the market square on a street dotted with cut shops too. My husband and I were with friends from New Zealand and we ordered a mix of tacos and mains from the menu. They did not disappoint. Service was great too!

For me it starts with service and that is a sure thing at this place. Friendly with a latin touch, rare to find in Holland. The food is refined and super fresh. I loved it in combination with my mexican beer. Its based in a hip and upcoming neighbourhood. You can tell the staff likes to work here, and they make the customers shine.
I a true asset for Rotterdam!

Just beginning but already the taste of the real Mexican kitchen. After 25 years of looking for a bit of Mexican taste we always were disappointed. But this kitchen made us feel home again. They say that the restaurant in The Hague is even better but you have to make reservations.
