Nice authentic Mexican food in a quaint restaurant not far from the Amstel river. Stairs very steep up to the loos that you have to be a bit of an explorer to tackle but that is par the course in Amsterdam in the old buildings. Great portions. I had the Alfonso special combination which was plenty. Very cosy restaurant.

Ate here from the second time in Amsterdam. Again the food was very good. We had the chicken fajitas for two. There was plenty of chicken and it was very tasty. We also had the mojitos which were good too. The staff are very attentive and friendly. I am sure I will be back on another visit.

My boyfriend and I ate here for dinner during our stay in Amsterdam in July and were impressed by the quality of food and customer service. On arrival we were told there were no tables free but were invited to have a drink at the bar while we waited for one to become available (which we did). The staff were... More

Very last minute dinner. The owner was very accommodating for our party of 4. We decided on chicken and steak fajitas. Very filling, steak was out of this world tasty and well cooked considering we turned up last minute and they had started clean down of the kitchen. I would definitely return and make a point of adding it to... More

This out of the way restaurant is a must visit in my opinion. The owner is a very humble and inviting person and the atmosphere is so relaxed. Food was very tasty at an extremely reasonable price and you are still close enough to go to the main bars and clubs afterwards if you want to. As it is getting... More

Stumbled across this restaurant and were lucky to go inside! Kind staff, and good Mexican food. Authentic rather than texmex!

Great authentic Mexican food served in a bustling and happy atmosphere. All diners looked to be enjoying themselves. Nice Mexican atmosphere, candles etc. Tortillas, chilli, salads, fajitas were all great. Worth a visit but book a table or get there early. It was busy even on a Monday night! Toilets on first floor, take a hard hat if you are... More
