Excellent service and delicious authentic food. Honestly, the waitresses were so kind and explained everything so well. The food came at such a good pace despite it being packed with people. What I also liked was how they did not seem to "forget" us seated outside- which often happens at other places. Thanks and we will certainly keep visiting!

The staff is awesome, the food is awesome, the atmosphere is fantastic, though a light dimmer would be a good investment. The food was absolute amazing, felt like I was back at a lively street in Mexico, eating fingerlicking good Taco's. The better thing is, it was not expensive, so very accessible for a random walk in to enjoy. Just a beer on tap from Mexico, was really the only thing missing. Drinking from an Hertog Jan bottle made me feel I was on my balcony at home back being a student.

I´ have already written a review in Google reviews: "Impresionante cena en el Queru, como siempre. Su cocina esta llena de sabores deliciosos. Recomiendo el ceviche y la smokey enchilada (que probamos ayer por primera vez). Tambien disfrutamos del camote y de los tacos del pastor. Todo riquisimo!!, no cambieis por favor!"

The oysters were the best they have ever been. Delicious! I REALLY missed the pibil taco. The chorizo one was good but not nearly as good as the pibil. (It’s probably my favourite food in the whole entire world) The ceviche was nice but I preferred the passion fruit one much more. The churro desert was amazing! I missed the pulpo! I loved the new tacos de Baga (Spelling?) but my husband preferred the original one. Very happy you still have the Pieter sauce even though we have to pay for it. Service was great as always. So happy you are open again!!

I found the queru via an blogpost that made a good recommendation. They did not lie! The food was really tasty and original. The staff was really friendly and took their time to explain everything on the menu. The cocktails are good and not that expensive. The taco with shrimp in tempura was for me the winner of the evening. I will definitely go back here

The food was amazing, personally I would've liked a bit more salt on the steak of the tacos ruisenor but that could already be helped by having salt on the table. The pisco sour was great! I found the margarita a bit too sweet, I would've liked a bit more lime. Other than those small tips, I would highly recommend this to place to anyone!

Been here before. Brought newcomers. And for a reason. Food remains amazing. We had a bit of a wait between the food and here the lovely team needs to keep an eye out for empty plates (too long) on the table. Same for no more drinks while the place was 70% empty. Minor point. I will be back for sure.

The quality of the food, its' taste taste and presentation, cocktails and service were really good. The few downsides from my point of view are that the place is not very cosy and is a bit pricy considering the size of the dishes.

Don’t get me wrong, food is good. But we did get the feeling it could be better. We were not crazy about ordering with the QR code. It forces you to keep the phone in sight. The ambience is too clean and empty to feel authentic Mexican. Food was good, but not great. Why is a quesadilla open like a taco? Taste is not always well balanced, the guacamole is too smooth for my taste. It all seems like a copy of a copy of a copy rather then the real thing. We loved the prawns though!

it would be good to mention the overall idea to share the plates. We ordered 3 dishes for 3 persons. We got them one by one. And it was not our intention to share our plates. So we ate all separately, which was not very nice.
