We arrived in Amsterdam via train and checked into our hotel. Ready for dinner and wanting to find something nearby we discovered Tio Pepe's and I'm so glad that we did! I ordered the spinach and goat cheese enchiladas and they were absolutely delicious. The portion was huge, more than I could eat. Two thumbs up for the guacamole as... More

People are very friendly here and will do anything to accommodate your wishes. The food is excellent. Many people eat here while alone. Try the nacho entry. My favorite is the pollo ala Mexicano.

We thought it would be fun to check out his Amsterdam did with Mexican food and were thoroughly disappointed by this restaurant. Sad thing? We went in with very low expectations and they couldn't even meet those. The staff couldn't even pronounce the menu choices correctly.

We went to Tio Pepe for a family dinner out and ordered steak, spare ribs and enchiladas. All of which were either over cooked or just poorly done. They have no idea how to do any of those dishes. When they ask you how is the food do not give them an honest answer they simply do not like it!... More

Stumbled across this excellent restaurant on our last nights stay in Amsterdam, a difficult choice as it was sandwiched between Italian and Spanish (I think) restaurants. The staff were warm and gave us a friendly welcome and there was a relaxing atmosphere. We both agreed the food was excellent, as was the wine. Would we go back? Yes!

After having walked for what seemed like forever looking for a decent place to eat, we came across Tio Pepe and decided to eat here. The staff were ever so friendly - the owner came over and spoke to us in Spanish which was sweet, albeit pointless as neither of us spoke the language. Unfortunately, the food really was just...

We enjoyed our dinner very much. The whole staff were friendly and accommodating. So much so that we chose to dine there a second time prior to leaving Amsterdam. The pricing was fair. Quality was excellent. Beans, rice and salad come with most meals. Fresh Mexican dishes.
