Sunday evening around 9pm and the place was quite quiet. Lovely garden area at the rear that took you away from the hustle and bustle at the front. Food really was excellent, good Mexican choices and some dishes i'd not seen before. Fish dishes especially good. 3 courses with beer comes to about 25-30 euros a head. Outstanding value for... More

I visit this restaurant since it opened in 1982. Last Saturday we visited this restaurant after a couple of years and I was very pleasantly surprised. The menu was changed and the atmosphere was very nice. The food was really great and for the Dutch important big portions :-). We definately are going to come back and try the other... More

Amsterdam has so many great restaurants but if the craving for something with good flavour and a bit spicy grabs you then head over to Rose's. It was busy but the service was very good overall and waiting times were better than average. Portions are generous and the drinks are not overpriced given the setting and location. The outside seating... More

Rose's has it all...now! Casual non pretentious friendly atmosphere with great food (menu seems to change frequently, seasonal I think) My first visit to Rose's over a year ago was a different story, service staff lacked timing and attentiveness, now service staff are just on it! and there is a notable improvement in the food menu. I've dined at Rose's... More

Rose's Cantina was recommended as a place to enjoy very good Mexican food so my wife and I went for dinner. Arriving about 1900 we had our choice of tables. Once a waitperson came to our table, we ordered a bottle of still water (E5), two glasses of wine (E4.50 each), my wife a Pulled Pork Taco (came with two)... More

We went here 2 years ago to eat with a group of friends, and had our dining experience ruined by a cranky waitress. Food was good, and we had more than one waiter, but she alone managed to ruin this experience for us. Yelling "Yes!" triumphantly when we ask for the bill is just not acceptable.

This is a place to be if you want to have a drink and bite before you go party! Lovely cocktails and service is great as well. This place is something you can't miss if you love Mexican stuff.

I popped into Roses for a bite, in the evening after work. I sat at the bar, with a drink, then asked to sit at a table. The server was very polite and sat me at a table. The bar was trendy with quite an impressive array of drinks on offer. The staff were all very open and friendly, I... More

Rose's Cantina is a bar restaurant serving good Mexican food. The bar scene and drinks are great. Service was very good. The Mexican food was fresh, delicious and a bit spicy. (Perhaps spicy by American standards for Mexican or southwest cuisine, and spicy to too hot by European and British standards.) Rose's Cantina seems to be targeting 20 and 30... More

My brother and I visited Rose's last night (1st March). We were greeted by a girl who promptly told us that there were no tables but we could have a drink at the bar. We were just waiting to be served when a male front of house approached us and made it clear we were not welcome to eat at... More
