Friends decided they wanted to try this so along we came. Staff was friendly and attentive, but the food menu is very limited, gamba caramba came with deep fried crumbed gambas instead of pan fried gambas like on one of the photos here. one of the dishes the waitress got wrong, but no problems here. In the end it was faily cheap for the 4 of us, but there are definitley better places to eat in antwerp!

Avoid taco Thursdays.... white supermarket tortilla cut in two pieces and some sort of minced meat with onions and beans - same without meat is the vegetarian plate - is NOT tacos, not mexican, not even tasty. I was totally disappointed. Place looks nice and personnel is polite but unfortunately the food was so bad it didnt save the day.

I was there for a poetry evening.
Food available and it looked delicious.
Cocktails available.
Large selection of drinks available.
Close to the big market (translated from Dutch ).
Friendly staff.
Use of English is highly feasible.
Not too spacious, so can get crowded.
Clean toilets.
10 minutes away from the central station.
Discounted prices for tacos on Thursday (I think on that day, as I saw a flyer there).

With all the good reviews, I was really looking forward to this one. We had a coupon Tapas & Apero from friends. And we thought this was a smart choice. Ok, there was plenity of choice of cocktails and they were fine.
But we had to wait for one and a half hour for the tapas (2 shrimps, 2 calamares, 2 pieces of salami and some cheese). The staff cleary forgot us and when we pointed that out, they said they had a lot of work. Sorry but we had a reservation, they know we were coming. Cute place but they have a lot to learn

drinks and food are great! really cosy only a little bit cold in wintertime... they should really think of having more waiters - it is a rather long wait to get your drinks - food not because they are with 2:-)
