“Wonderfully flavorful Mexican food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

So, in addition to friendly staff, Matias restaurant pours excellent strong margaritas. The food is wonderfully flavorful and everything you'd want from a Mexican restaurant! Something for everyone!

“Poor food-bad prices. Don't do it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

We definitely would not recommend Matias restaurant to anyone. The prices were high, the service was just okay if that and the food was poor quality and not a lot for what you pay. It was a bit ridiculous and we regretted choosing this restaurant almost instantly. If only we could rewind the night a bit-it was that bad.

“Give it a chance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Matias is a Mexican restaurant in a very busy area of Amsterdam (there are literally hundreds of restauarnts around it). We decided to take a chance after we saw an advertized special - €10.90 for steak or ribs or chicken, plus salad and fries, plus wine, beer or soft drink. The steak and chicken were both good, and we received decent portions. The service was friendly and quick despite comments from other reviewers. We would definitely return.

“Lovely food, but service from front door rep was weird.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Went here in July. The food was delicious and very filling, with the beer absolutely fantastic.

However, the creepy Turkish rep at the front door put our party right off. Heckling everybody in the street to drag them in. Then coming over to our table every 2 minutes to tell us the type of 'videos' he made and how he 'liked our women.'

Would go back, but this guy at the door is a real turn off. You will know him when you walk past him.
