Great bar-like restaurant for a Friday night

Went here with friends last Friday for dinner and drinks. It being a Friday, we had Friday afternoon drinks first so we were a bit late at the restaurant (9 pm-ish). No biggie as this restaurant's kitchen is open until late and it subtly turns into a bar in the course of the evening: the (really... read more

After 3 weeks in Europe we were craving mexican food - and Rose's Cantina did not disappoint! The chicken tacos were amazing - and we do not say this lightly as we live in Southern California (and have traveled to Mexico several times). The margaritas are OK, the chips generic, but the entrees are worth coming here for. Definitely going... More

Excellent Mexican food and delicious cocktails! I would highly recommend this restaurant :) we did spend €100 on just 2 people, but it was worth it! I will definitely be returning on my next trip to Amsterdam!

We decided to visit here after looking at the menu from the street. It was quiet inside and we were encouraged to sit outside in the courtyard as it was warmer. It was nice and sunny out in the courtyard and a pleasant experience. The service was a little slow and a bit all over the place. They brought us... More

We were a large group of 10 and were on the set menu. Place was really good, nice atmosphere and decor. Starters were a mix and were tasty without being particularly memorable. Mains were enchiladas which were tasty but a few dishes had been left in the oven too long and been caught on the bottom. A bit sloppy but... More

Been here before. What I remembered was good tasty food, cocktails and service. Now it was a bit different. Nachos were a bit to long in the oven cheese was not melted but a stage further than that. And it took an hour and 20 minutes from the moment we sat down before we got our main course. I think... More

I came here with a group of 19 friends. The staff were lovely and the cocktails were tasty (about ?8 each). There was a really nice feel to the place and the food was decent. Good for large young groups.

Having not been here for years am now really happy we took a trip back to Roses Cantina!! Staff were super friendly & helpful, food was spot on and the atmosphere was great! The cocktails were pretty delicious too. If there's one criticism it's the price of the drinks, at €39 for a pitcher of Margueritas the jug could be... More

Very good Tex-Mex in a lively, centrally located street. Even without reservations on a Friday night, with a few minutes of patience, you should get a table. I came for the first time with my best friend and enjoyed it so much that we came back the very next week with my boyfriend. The place is rather trendy and loud... More
