    Great place for authentic Mexican tacos and drinks, friendly service, centrally located. Molé dish was in our opinion over priced for what it was. We'll stick with the tacos.

    Good food but small and expensive. It was very busy so the waiters didn’t have time to explain the salsa or any information about the food which I think is valuable in this restaurant. Otherwise the food was good quality with a big price tag. Place is nice but it was very busy and the tables are very close together, we felt like the people next to us could hear our whole conversation.

    The service and menu explanation was great. The meal was tasty and excellent. Highly recommended. Authentic Mexican food. The cucumber and lime drink was very refreshing.

    We went to Cencalli for a Friday dinner with my boyfriend. It was amazing! Authentic mexican food and dedicated and friendly service. The restaurant itself is pretty small and cosy. Highly recommend.

    When full, the noise level was quite high. Difficult to hear across the table. Food and drinks were delicious and very authentic. Will come back!

    The most authentic tortillas in Europe. Made with fair trade 100% mexican corn. Aside of the super flavor, the restaurant supports a project that helps a rural community. I find this fantastic, not only a place to eat with great flavor, but also the feeling that you are supporting a good cause, enhanced the whole experience. A place where I’d like to return again and again, just like a taqueria in Ciudad de Mexico.

    So glad we discovered this place for AUTHENTIC Mexican tacos. The salsas, homemade tortillas, guacamole and margaritas were also amazing, and the people were so nice. Highly recommended, especially for those who know/miss real Mexican food.

    Amazing food, amazing people, great atmosphere! The best tacos I've ever tried. Most likely my favorite place in the Hague, it's an absolute must!

    The food was sublime as always. One of the waiters was also excellent. The other I found alto be disappointing. She spilled a bowl of chips (around 7 euros-so not cheap) all over the table. She didn’t offer to bring a new one.

    The Cocktails are awesome! We really loved the chicken tacos. The atmosphere and service are above all the reason to come back! It really feels like your on holidays the minute you walk in.

    Overpriced Mexican snacks. No real meal. The chilaquiles has maybe a tablespoon of shredded chicken and an awful mole that tasted out of a can. Not true Mexican food.
