American now Dutch having lived in Europe for 18 years, I have never found such a fantastic Mexican restaurant as this. Only two others come close (Gouda and one in the south of Spain) - the beef enchiladas were amazing, succulent stewed beef with great flavor!

Bit crammed in and the fire was on...very warm. It was by a windowsill sticking out and this made sitting difficult. We certainly had enough to eat and were served by numerous people. Not quite the top place it was a few years ago.

We had dinner below our hotel and this was very good. The staff is friendly and recognised us from previous year. Nice tapas and also gamba's or spare ribs. The wine is good and after dinner you can sit at the fireplace next to the restaurant with a glühwein after which we rolled back to our rooms.

Cantina Dolores was a huge and wonderful surprise. The food is excellent - so fresh and tasty. The prices are reasonable and even the house red wine... More
