I had not been to Alfonso's for years, but was pleased to find it is still as good as I remembered. Service was friendly, fast and attentive. Our food arrived with amazing speed (and disappeared fast because it was delicious!) I would recommend the chimichangas with spicey chicken. This is a great place to eat before a visit to the...

The food was (a bit to my suprise even) very good even though the presentation was not that flattering on all the dishes (we were 7 people).

Better than average Mexican food. Food was good as well as the service. A thing I did not like was the way they inflate your bill by selling water. There is a bottle of water on every table. If you open it you have bought yourself a whole bottle of warm tap water with 4,20 euros.

The atmosphere of this place is really nice and so is the food. We had quesadillas de queso for starter, and 2 chimichangas (chicken and minced meat) for main. The starter was lovely. I would also recommend the chimi with minced meat. We were served some probably-homemade salsa with warm nachos as a welcome treat from the restaurant. I won't... More

On our first night in Amsterdam me and my girlfriend went exploring not to far from our hotel to find somewhere to eat. There were plenty of options to choose from but this restaurant had a wide choice of food and was very reasonably priced. We decided to go for the Alfonsos's Antojitos which is described on the menu as... More

Nice authentically designed restaurant and good service, but not the cheapest. Water is already on the table implying it’s free but it’s not, which is very cheeky. The fajita’s had a lot of chicken but only 1 tiny pepper & hardly any onions, and we were given 6 tortilla’s between 3 people who all had their own €19 portion of... More

Every half a year I come and visit Amsterdam. So there's no excuse for not visiting this amazing Tex Mex restaurant! First of all you're dining in a small authentic old building, when walking upstairs to the toilets; the interior is prodigious! Just stand for a few minutes and enjoy it. The food is delicious; i always choose a tortilla... More
