Safe choice for meat

As alway when we feel the need for red meat, had diner at Caramba. Always an uncomplicated place, good size, good portions with excellent meat and usually very tasty chips or potatos. Service is usually adequate, but depends on who's around. A safe choice for your meat desire.

Steak was great, margarita awkwardly weak and overpriced. Home- made nachos are topped with fresh ingredients, but I missed the real spiciness of the authentic Mexican cuisine. Ok food but you would expect something more for this price.

After reading a few reviews we thought we'd take the little trip out to this side of the city and glad we did as the food was excellent. We visited on a Wednesday evening when it was quiet but the restaurant had a homely feel to the place. Take the little adventure and enjoy the food.

Fresh latin flavours in a great and relaxed atmosphere!! The resto is in the Jordan area. We had the Caramba combo and the taste was really authentic and fresh!

Went here with friends. The restaurant is very pleasantly (rustic) decorated. The service was excellent. The food although not authentic Mexican was very good. The margarita as an aperative was very good. We shared a quesadilla and guacamole which were very good although the guacamole had no coriander as eaten in Mexico. The burrito was filled with pieces of eat... More

Landed here by accident. Quiet, decent service, great steaks. Nacho starter with chicken was also very tasty. A pleasant evening. No complaints at all.

Only good things to say about this restaurant. They serve excellent food for a decent price. Only finding a parking spot was a bit difficult.

I really have nothing good to say about this place. We visited on a Tuesday evening, there was only three couples including ourselves at the restaurant. The service was ok, but could be improved. It was not efficient or overly friendly. The menu is limited and for what you get incredibly overpriced. We ordered a beef burrito and chicken and... More

We stumbled upon this Mexican style restaurant while in Amsterdam last weekend, after been unable to get a table at a tapas restaurant nearby. Was definitely not disappointed. Both our our meals were excellent ( I had lamb , my wife had prawns) really really good. The place is pleasant & rustic. Special mention to staff terrific attention Really recommended!

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
