“Impressivo Mexicano”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Great food with warm welcoming ambience. Top quality steak, ribs and king prawns cooked to perfection rounded off with a nice warm Cafe Tio Pepe coffee (they do not hold back on the brandy). Well worth a visit but a bit too costly to afford every night!

“Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Had a nice chicken and shrimps Burrito, which was quite good and came with nice Mexican rice. Had a good beer with it too. The service was OK, but I think the price was a little bit too expensive for a Burrito.

Bottom line: If you're into Mexican food and you're in the area (Central Amsterdam).

“Very cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We found this restaurant by chance. the "street man" is not aggressive, we read menu together.
Inside, service is perfect, meals are good and we can take time for dinner, it is pleasant when you are in family. At the end of dinner, "street man" come back to do magic with children.
It was not a typical Amsterdam restaurant, but a very good place for dinner.

“Mexican in the centre of Amsterdam”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

The Tio Pepe was a short walk from our hotel, so a group of us decided to eat here

The resturant was quite quiet, so easy to get a large table.

Service was reasonably quick and attentive, starts came quickly and were OK, but fairly small portions

good sleection of bottled beers

We had a variety of main courses, all came quickly and were fine,

all told, perfectly acceptable, nothing special, good central location, and for the centre of Amsterdamn total cost was not too bad
