Los Ponchos offers refined food in the different styles of a number of Latin American countries. I love their burrito's and empanadas, but the restaurant offers many more beautiful dishes like chicken, seafood and duck. We have been coming to this restaurant for many years now and the food has become even better. The place is decorated quite simply but... More

It's a lovely restaurant with great food. The dishes are perfectly executed and they have an amazing selection of authentic liquors. Also great wine list! I recommend ordering one of the patter which have great diversity so you can taste a bit of everything! 5 stars service, will definitely be back

We went to this restaurant just by passing by. Good for once but not for a second. Although their rent must be quite expensive in this area, the prices are ridiculously high. Salmon plate for over 20 euro was just a spoon of black beans and like 150 grams of salmon. 1/2 liter of house wine was charged to 17euro.... More

Dear Cristian M, Prices are displayed outside the establishment. Regarding the salmon(180 grams), we think it's a fair price for freshness and quality! Thank you for your visit. Kind regards, D.Vasquez More

I love Mexican food so I've been too several Mexican restaurants in the past in several countries including the US near the Mexican border (not yet in Mexico itself though). This is the best Mexican I've had in a restaurant. The food is not heavy which a lot of Mexican restaurants tend to be. Certainly will go back there.

Up the stairs to the chalked board greeting "Hola" at the front door, I knew this was Los Ponchos. A little bit of fun to invite you inside. As you enter Los Ponchos my basic (and I mean basic) Spanish greetings came back to me. Hola. Mucho Gracious. Si. Señor. And that's about it. The atmosphere and decor has been... More

After reading the reviews thought this would be a great restaurant to visit. It was good but lacked a bit of finesse I thought. Although all dishes presented and eaten were fine, the finer point to detail was missing I thought. However it was a great meal and the wine cellar was amazing. I think this establishment is on a...

We are absolute fans of Latin American fine food, and we especially enjoyed eating at Los Ponchos. Our meal was of excellent quality, and we loved the choice that is not limited to one country... there are specialties of Mexico, Peru, Argentina, ... and that makes this restaurant really different ! We'll be back for some other special occasion.

Fine example evening in a good atmosphere. The hendrix gin cocktail was excellent as the food. A distance from the centre of Brussels but worth while
