Nice meal

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.

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

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

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

Having visited this restaurant several times in the last few months with colleagues from work, I recommend a visit and know that I will go back. I like strong flavoured food and really enjoyed the "Tortilla Gigantes" that I had last week along with the Tapas Alfonso that I shared with my colleague. The previous time we had the shared...

My boyfriend picked this restaurant whilst walking nearby via the tripadvisor app, it did not disappoint! It was fairly quiet but the staff were very friendly and helpful. We were given some tortillas and salsa to pick at whilst ordering (beware - the salsa is very spicy!) we ordered a veggie burrito and a spicy chicken combo of a burrito,... More

Wow this food was delicious! We were just wandering around Rembrandtsquare when we saw this mexican restaurant. Because we weren't familiar with mexican food, I asked a waitress what was recommended. She was very patient and helpfull and said that the chicken chimichanga, fajita and combination of tortillas were the most ordered dishes. So we went for it. I never... More
