Gringo's Cantina has been my favourite place to eat in Antwerp! It can take you a while to have a table so try to go as early as possible! Best frozen margarita's, tostada chicken, nacho's with fresh guacamole, friendly staff and super cozy place.

Lucky to get a table @ 6pm, place was full but food didnt came late. Basic mexican kitchen, was fine and would recommend. Try the chili based cocktail if you love spicy!

This small restaurant does not take reservations. There's a few seats by the bar where you can wait for a table while enjoying a cocktail. The food is good, but in my opinion not exceptional. I had beef tacos and for me the portion was too small (2 tacos) and I was still hungry afterwards. Might return at some point... More

Their food and drinks are not mexican, neither texmex (their tacos are served with hard tortilla, their guacamole and drinks are tasteless, what they call quesadilla is not, without mentioning what they call enchilada...) everything would be forgiven if the personal would not be super rude. Not coming back ever again. Mexican people in Belgium, don't waste your time and... More

Great little Mexican place. You cannot reserve a table, you have to pay cash and space is limited but it's so worth it. Good, hearty Mexican food in a laid back and casual atmosphere.

Oldish simply Mexican style wooden chair restaurant-cantina. The waiting for the food is long, but the food is fresh. The place is small as the kitchen is. Socialist style of concept and serving. You don't have to be here if you don't take it the way it is. The bargain is the drinks you order while waiting ... The food... More

You cannot book here so get early or be disappointed. I love the food here and the cocktails are amazing but a little pricey!

So overall the food is average, something you can't really complain about. BUT if you had a below average kind of day--please don't go there- because the service is something you might not tolerate. 1- they wouldn't let us order all the dishes we want (although we were a group of 6). Old lady and the old man kept arguing... More

I had always wanted to check out the Gringo's Cantina, and was very excited when my friend invited me to go to dinner. The service was beyond appauling. There were three of us (two being very built men) and after our third plate of guacamole and tortilla chips the waitress bluntly refused to let us order another one. telling us... More
