Welcoming

We ate here late one night in Zaandam. We were openly welcomed depsite it being late. All were very welcoming. The food was truly amazing as was the array of drinks and wines. Even though it was late we were far from rushed and enjoyed chatting with the owner.

I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. Being from California, I've had the good fortune to be able to try lots of auhentic, as well as chain style mexican food. I really liked what they are doing at this restaurant. The ambiance and music were a nice touch. I had one of the combo plates, two enchiladas,... More

The meal was pretty bad, I think they used deep-freeze vegetables, mixed them with some salty mass, wrapped them in something, threw this on top of cheese and microwaved it.

Ate here one night. Staff friendly and service good although no english menu offered. All the usual mexican offerings. The chicken burrito was nice (although the plate was so hot some sauce had burnt on the plate). The ribs were tasty and tender but a little dry (perhaps again due to the scalding hot plate) and the large slice of... More

We decided to try out this Mexican in Zaandam. Good assortment on the menu. We ordered burritos, Enchiladas, fajita’s, a kiddie’s taco meal, Corona and Desperado beer, and a bottle of house wine. The food was good. The steak with the fajitas was juicy and tender. The chicken was nice and spicy. No complaints about the burrito and enchilada. There... More

We live here in Zaandam and it's the fifth times we come here for dinner. Good kitchen. Nice staff. Fully satisfied. One good news: they introduced a menu in English too! And, since we made the reservation in the morning (in English) adding that this time we were with a child, in the evening we already found the English menu... More

On a mini break my wife and I were on the lookout for a good local restaurant and took a chance - we both need to avoid wheat/gluten so it can be tricky at the best of times. We were happily surprised when both the service and the food were great! Unusually for us we went back here 3 times,... More

no english menu, very surprising in netherlands. Asked for a meal off childrens menu for my daughter which included dessert. They brought a massive meal from adult menu which she ate a quarter of. No dessert but by this time could not be bothered to ask about. Had to go to the counter to ask to pay. As a tourist... More
