Best Mexican restaurant in Leuven. Often busy, so worth calling ahead to book. Lively atmosphere and great food. I've enjoyed every visit.
Close to my apartment, I've been looking forward to coming to El Sombrero for ages. On the Lei, 3 minutes walk from the centre this place looks good. Walk in and it's busy with a buzz. It's a good start. It did take them ages to bring a menu and my drink seemed to take an age. Let's say the... 更多
The place is nice and the food is good. But the service was too bad. We had to wait 45 minutes for the drinks and 60 for the food for a dinner of two.
Nice cosy restaurant. Excellent Mexican cocktails and food. Prima options for vegetarians. Price policy ok, but not cheap. Discount for students - not for professors ;)
