Description: A little background about us….La Margarita, Mexican Cafe Restaurant, by the regulars just called “the Mexicans!” has been a landmark restaurant for more than thirty years. Full of Mexican warmth, buzzing with a crazy Latin atmosphere, it really is hard to believe you are in the centre of Amsterdam, yet here , you can let your imagination go wild and enjoy many specialties from the Yucatan region of Mexico. Various delicious dishes like Fajita's, Taco, Burrito's, Tournedos Ranchero and Marinated Niños Eros adorn our menu. Naturally we also serve Mexican beers, Margaritas and other cosmopolitan cocktails to enjoy with these dishes. You can end your dinner with a tasty dessert or, for the true enthusiast, a strong Mexican coffee with Kahlua, Tequila and Cream! But, La Margarita is more than just a restaurant, it’s so flexible! Atmospheric enough to provide a perfect cosy dinner for two yet supple enough to cater for weddings, other receptions and groups of 10 or more at a table. A maximum of 98 people can be catered for “a la carte” if you wish, or, you can choose from a selected menu to suit your needs. We also offer a varied monthly menu from just 19.50 Per Person. For people requiring a gluten-free diet, we always have at least ten dishes on the menu that are gluten free. If you fancy a dish on the menu, which is not gluten free, our chef will gladly adjust the ingredients for you. To find us – Our address is Langebrugsteeg 6, between Rokin and Nes.

We loved the Christmas window decorations so much that we decided to stop in for a pre-dinner cocktail. Seems to be a popular place for after-office outings so the atmosphere was good - warm, lively and cosy. Don't remember much about our cocktails though...

Wonderful hosts, really made you feel welcome and very relaxed. The food is good and the atmosphere is cosy. The restaurant was decorated for Christmas and they had really gone to town - loved the decorations in the window! Had to wait a wee while for our food but the hosts conversation and attention made up for the wait. Would... More

The food was great, the margarita's were authentic, but the best part were the owners who were so welcoming and gracious. It made for a great meal out and a nice memory of our trip to Amsterdam.

Had veggie meal (Combo), it took a little while, but when it arrived the fod was freshly cooked but the three different tortillas had no flavour and no spice. At 16 euro a shot I expect more. I asked and got a spicy chilli sauce, that helped add some taste, also asked for salt-and-pepper but that never came (the water... More

A great place to eat. The food was great and the service. Like you're guest. The steak is great and much better and cheaper in half then a famous place on the other street. We be back.

The food was ok, but nothing special. The service was also ok, but the waiting time was perhaps a little long.

A random but welcome find in Amsterdam. We were sat upstairs on the small outdoor terrace overlooking one of the many waterways - a bonus in the summer heat! A bit squished together with the other diners but manageable. I rarely see tamales on a menu (with chicken and prunes) so I went for it and didn't regret it. The... More

If you are looking for a great typical Colombian meal, you should definitely hit this joint. It is easy to find, and they also offer other types of cuisine. I will definitely recommend to try "la bandeja paisa", it is delicious! Also, the staff is really friendly and welcoming!

Four of us we searching for a Mexican restaurant near Rambrantplein and found this hidden jewel! We just loved the taste. Although it was not as spicy as we would have liked, but the taste was too good. I will highly recommend La Magarita and will suggest to sit at the terrace when the weather is good.

Can't really say anything about this that is positive except the nice terrace out the back, even then the drinks were awful so we didn't really enjoy it! Poor service and a rude waiter! Food was actually the worst least fresh Mexican ever eaten! Would really avoid at all costs
