Very popular & great service

Took my wife here on a recent trip as we fancied something different. Walked across town & it's located in an excellent lively neighbourhood. The food & service was superb, we booked late & they squeezed us in in the 1st floor restaurant. Excellent atmosphere would recommend

Had a great evening last night, 28-08-2015. We were luckely to find a table available in the garden. The weather was great. Had a few beers and ordered Rose's Enchilada later on. The restaurant is located at the very busy and popular street the Reguliersdwarsstraat but still serves great food! (I'm always afraid that the quality is less good in... More

Don't expect great Mexican food. Or Margaritas. It might fill a need when you at craving it and there's not a lot of options, but the food and drinks are just ok

I remember this restaurant from a visit to Amsterdam over 15 years ago and it is no wonder that the restaurant is still going strong. If you like Mexican, this restaurant is superb. I ate here with my family and I tasted from all the different plates - the pulled pork tacos with apple were delicious, empanadas were incredible and... More

My husband and I absolutely love coming here for the mushroom tacos! As a veggie option, they are phenomenal and so delicious!! Which is why I was so disappointed last night, when I went with a friend, to learn that they had been removed and replaced by lentil tacos. They cannot even compare to how good the mushroom tacos were.... More

Very buzzy and informal atmosphere with patronage of all ages, with a modern taberna decor. Service was very friendly and quite quick. The chuleton (steak for 2 people) was tender but slightly overdone and the BBQ ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender. Great place for a night out with group of friends.

Great atmosphere, staff helpful and friendly and fresh food with good quality. Never disappointed when I go. Relaxed place where I take some of my business associates for a casual dinner.

We visited Rose's on our last night in Amsterdam, and it was a lovely end to the holiday. We sat on a table at the front of the restaurant and people-watched whilst sipping our cocktails, which were very nice with just the right amount of alcohol in. To start, we had a quesadilla type dish (cannot find it on the... 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
