On the spur of the moment I stopped in here for a meal. I had fajitas with beef, and the usual add ons. Quantities were good except the fajitas were small and there was too much filling for them but that didn't really matter. There was hot sauce on the table which was just as well as everything was just... More

Service was good and staff were very friendly. Ambiance was also good. But we were very disappointed by the food. Simple and tasteless, did not feel like it was worth the money. No salsa came with the fajitas and our nachos had a couple of fries in it... Despite the friendly staff, I wouldn't recommend eating here.

We were looking for a restaurant on our rainy cold last night, and were convinced to go into this place by the guy promoting it outside. They had a great offer, that included a main course (choice of 3) and drink for €12.95. Ridiculously good value for money! Great service from friendly staff in a cozy mexican interior. Highly recommended!

I have gone this restaurant for a lunch by chance. It was offering a really good price for a menu including one drink at a very central touristic area. I ordered spare ribs and it was quite good with BBQ sauce. I recommend this place if you do not have high expectations.

I just love the food served here. I love the Macho Nacho and Mushroom with Cheese served here as starter. I also enjoy the Burrito's, Vegetariano palate here as Main course. As i am a veggie, i find a lot of options in here. So i like this restaurant a lot.

My wife and I visited this restraunt on Sunday December 15th as we had used it on a previous visit to Amsterdam. This time however we were badly let down by very poor service and had to wait 55 minutes for our meal. Don't get me wrong, the food was just as good as we had remembered but seeing people... More

So, in addition to friendly staff, Matias restaurant pours excellent strong margaritas. The food is wonderfully flavorful and everything you'd want from a Mexican restaurant! Something for everyone!

We definitely would not recommend Matias restaurant to anyone. The prices were high, the service was just okay if that and the food was poor quality and not a lot for what you pay. It was a bit ridiculous and we regretted choosing this restaurant almost instantly. If only we could rewind the night a bit-it was that bad.

Matias is a Mexican restaurant in a very busy area of Amsterdam (there are literally hundreds of restauarnts around it). We decided to take a chance after we saw an advertized special - €10.90 for steak or ribs or chicken, plus salad and fries, plus wine, beer or soft drink. The steak and chicken were both good, and we received... More
