Great Mexican in Amsterdam!

Who knew there could be very good Mexican food in Amsterdam? You need to make a reservation. Well, I didn't make a reservation and (luckily!) they had a cancellation and were kind enough to serve us. Really enjoyed my meal here!! Lively atmosphere with a very friendly staff. Drinks were also... read more

Had a really nice enchilada here. Great sized portion, well cooked and sizzling hot. Exactly what you want in Mexican food! The nachos we had to start could have been better. Needed melted cheese to make them excellent. Also had cocktails here which were very nice. Service was excellent here too. Recommended

We visited Rose's Cantina in April 2015. It was mine and my partners first time in Amsterdam and we did the usual research on restaurants prior to our trip and booked Nomad's for the Saturday night after reading some good reviews. When leaving our apartment on our way to Nomad's we met the apartment owner and was telling him about... 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

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 good techno) music gets... 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.
