Tasty Mexican food

I visited this place a number of times over the last few years, when I visit Amsterdam on business. The welcome is always welcome, the food is always tasty and the service is always friendly and fast. I would recommend this place for a lunch/dinner, for those of us who want a fuss free... read more

After a long walk in the city centre of Amsterdam, my family and I decided to go to this Mexican place. We were placed in a cosy corner and ordered some tortilla dishes. They were amazing and huge as well! I'm a big man myself and don't easily get stuffed that fast. That's a big plus for me! We also... More

My chimichanga was re heated. In the dead center it was still frozen. What a disappointment. The prices are a bit high in relation to the quality of the food in itself also.

This friendly restaurant helped to meet some expat cravings for Mexican food. By European Mexican restaurant standards, this restaurant is probably a four start restaurant, but as it compares to Mexican restaurants across the Atlantic, it's a three star experience. The chips are not freshly made (but again, I wouldn't necessarily expect that in a European Mexican restaurant), but the... More

If you like Mexican this is a good place to go. Not our favourite restaurant in Amsterdam but I would recommend as it was good service. Lacks atmosphere but we were upstairs.

The food in this rustic little Mexican was amazing. So much so that we went two nights in a row. Very friendly staff and bustling atmosphere made for a warm welcome. Tasty Margaritas and utterly scrumptious stewed beef burrito are worth a try. My mouth is watering just thinking of it. Well worth a visit. P.S- the gents toilets upstairs... More

I was in amsterdam for almost a month for business. I'm vegeterian and my co worker is vegan. The owner gave us nice choises of mains and sides. 1 of the things though really disturbed me. At the side of each table there is a botle of water. When I took a glass of the water I have found out... More

Good Mexican restaurant with a huge variety of courses on the menu. We were a party of 11 and had a variety of dishes including vegetarian options. The sizzling fajitas and enchiladas were very tasty and of a good size. Several members of the group had tortillas which they said were excellent. The food was not over spicy which suited... More
