Bienvenido in The Dirty Rabbit – Cantina y Coctelería!
With the latest new member of the Taste Restaurant Group, The Dirty Rabbit – Cantina y Cocteleria, we would like to take you all on a trip to Latin America.A lot of inspiration was found in countries such as Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Argentina and Chili. So, con mucho gusto, we’d love to present you our extensive menu, which will hopefully please meat lovers, fish lovers ánd vegetarianos. In our Coctelería we offer a nice selection of Latin inspired drinks. Please don’t be misguided by the name because, although cocktails will flow in abundance, we do like to serve you beautiful wines, beers and spirits as well. Our Coctelería is the perfect place for every occasion: to sit back, relax and enjoy a lovely aperitif, to finish your meal with a kick-ass after-dinner cocktail or to simply enjoy a drink with your sweetheart, friends or colleagues.

Food & drinks
We really do love serving the food of our talented Colombian chef Lander Hanskens Maldonado the true Latin American way at the Cantina. Our advise: share lots of different dishes with your amantes, amigos y familia and double the fun. Remember that all our dishes will be served when ready. And ‘to share or not to share’? That’s entirely up to you!
Food without a decent drink is a true crime … That’s why our head hartender, Yuni Herremans, created a fantastic range of handcrafted cocktails. Together with a great selection of ice cold beers and beautiful wines, there will be plenty of choice to enjoy your favorite drink before, during or after your meal.
Not so hungry? You are more than welcome to have a drink at our well stocked bar without having dinner. Just know you can always order some small dishes at the bar or ask for the next available table when you change your mind.
Due to lockdown restrictions our Club Nights will be postponed until further notice.
Club Nights start every Friday and Saturday evening, right after dinner, as of 11PM. There is no entrance fee and everybody’s welcome (unless of course we exceed our capacity, so make sure to come in early)! the programming can be found in the ‘What’s on’ section of this website.
Club Nights usually turn into one hell of a fiesta, all you need to do is join us on the dance floor. And for the true daredevils … we’ve kept our dance pole, so please show us your most sensual moves. Nos gusta mucho!!View our events
