Description: A little background about us....La Margarita, Mexican Cafe Restaurant, by the regulars just called "the Mexicans!" Has been a landmark restaurant for more than thirty years. Full of Mexican warmth, buzzing with a crazy Latin atmosphere, it really is hard to believe you are in the centre of Amsterdam, yet here , you can let your imagination go wild and enjoy many specialties from the Yucatan region of Mexico. Various delicious dishes like Fajita's, Taco, Burrito's, Tournedos Ranchero and Marinated Ninos Eros adorn our menu. Naturally we also serve Mexican beers, Margaritas and other cosmopolitan cocktails to enjoy with these dishes. You can end your dinner with a tasty dessert or, for the true enthusiast, a strong Mexican coffee with Kahlua, Tequila and Cream! But, La Margarita is more than just a restaurant, it's so flexible! Atmospheric enough to provide a perfect cosy dinner for two yet supple enough to cater for weddings, other receptions and groups of 10 or more at a table. A maximum of 98 people can be catered for "a la carte" if you wish, or, you can choose from a selected menu to suit your needs. We also offer a varied monthly menu from just 25,00 Per Person. For people requiring a gluten-free diet, we always have at least ten dishes on the menu that are gluten free. If you fancy a dish on the menu, which is not gluten free, our chef will gladly adjust the ingredients for you. To find us - Our address is Langebrugsteeg 6, between Rokin and Nes.

“Good find, great cocktails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We passed this in the daytime and having a vegetarian member of our group meant we have to find places with suitable options, this place had a good choice of vegetarian dishes and we booked a table for later in the evening as the place was small and there were 10 of us.

Cocktails were lovely and not too expensive and between us we tested a load on the menu, food was lovely thoroughly enjoyed, service was swift and we ended up staying until they threw us out!

“Surprisingly good Mexican food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Food blew out my previous expectations of Mexican food. I ordered the margarita faghita which arrived on a warm plate that gave the deliciously crispy on the outside and soft on the inside faghita warmth during the entire meal. Chicken was well seasoned and veggies were crisp. Not your typical Mexican slop on a plate.
Service was attentive and food delvered in a timely fashion.
Looking for Mexican food in Amsterdam. This place can't be beat.

“Hidden gem, family like atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Came here with Mexican friends who often come here. Obviously that is quite the recommendation!
And we were NOT disappointed! We came back the day after. Same familiar feel. Same sweet staff.
I will not miss out on this upon my next visit to Amsterdam!
