I have been in Los Pilones with a friend. The food was average in quantity and taste. I had to pour some bottled sauce to feel some taste. Margaritas are big and tasty. Prices high for tasteless food.

The place dropped in quality and service. The food used to be tastier with more flavor, portions became smaller for the same price. Nothing special anymore...

They have a pretty good selection of mexican food, most of it is tasty. Tortilla soup, Gobernador tacos (shrimp, sauce and melted cheese) and enchiladas are a good option. The fillings they offer for quesadillas are difficult to find, which include zucchini flowers, cuitlacoche (a...More

Los Pilones was founded by three Mexican brothers who settled in Amsterdam in 2001. Their concept was to bring the REAL taste of traditional Mexican to Holland, using the best imported Mexican ingredients such as their own brand of salsas, chillis and tequila. No burritos or hard shell tacos can be found on the menu, just simple, authentic Mex-Mex cuisine. After 10 successful years in Amsterdam, the two Los Pilones' restaurants have developed into bright and bustling local hot-spots, attracting tourists and visitors from all over the world.
