QUERU 'Cantina Mexicana' is the new and 2nd venture of chef Alberto Nol. Alberto made a name for himself with his first restaurant Ruiseñor, on the Denneweg in The Hague where he creates modern mexican dishes which will leave you bedazzled. Where Ruisenor is fine dining, QUERU is more easy going comfort food paired with quality cocktails.
'Queru', which is short for 'querubín' and translates to 'angel', was the nickname of Alberto's father who also owned a taco place in Mexico City and whenever people said: "Let's go to el Queru" they meant to go to Alberto's dad and enjoy his signature tacos.
Here at Queru we want to bring the vibrant and energetic spirit of the Mexican cantina, serving Mexican street-food with a modern spin, always using high quality, fresh produce. We believe peppers are not just spicy if you know how to use them! It's the ultimate shared dinning experience were comfort food with explosive flavours are perfectly paired with a Tequila cocktail, Beer or a Michelada! Queru is a place where everyone comes together to have a good time, to share dishes and not be afraid to get their hands dirty!
