Great dinner!

The service was very good, especially towards our 16 months old son by the warm and kind people working there. Food was delicious, especially the marinated chicken burrito and the ribs. Atmosphere was also good with low noise levels.

We had minimal expectations but were very pleased with the food and service, recommend the Desperado beer. Fajitas were very nice and came very quickly. Would recommend for a good Mexican meal.

Reasonably priced, my steak was cooked the way I like, nachos use Doritos as the chips, A little unusual. Food portions nice size. Not a bad resturant for such a touristy street.

enjoyable and food fairly good, however had to wait rather a long time to get the bill in the end and some of the other diners were becoming very noisy having imbibed in a lot of alcohol in a very short time

Visited with a colleague and was not disappointed. The fajitas were very good, as were the tacos and the nachos. The service was friendly and the range of drinks really good. Close walk from the city centre and Central Station!

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
