“Omnomnom”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

We were looking for a restaurant on our rainy cold last night, and were convinced to go into this place by the guy promoting it outside. They had a great offer, that included a main course (choice of 3) and drink for €12.95. Ridiculously good value for money!
Great service from friendly staff in a cozy mexican interior. Highly recommended!

“A Tasty Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

I have gone this restaurant for a lunch by chance. It was offering a really good price for a menu including one drink at a very central touristic area. I ordered spare ribs and it was quite good with BBQ sauce. I recommend this place if you do not have high expectations.

“Good and Tasty Mexican Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

I just love the food served here.

I love the Macho Nacho and Mushroom with Cheese served here as starter.

I also enjoy the Burrito's, Vegetariano palate here as Main course.

As i am a veggie, i find a lot of options in here. So i like this restaurant a lot.

“Disappointing.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I visited this restraunt on Sunday December 15th as we had used it on a previous visit to Amsterdam.
This time however we were badly let down by very poor service and had to wait 55 minutes for our meal.
Don't get me wrong, the food was just as good as we had remembered but seeing people who had come in andvordered after us getting served before us, was a big let-down.
We did ask the staff"WHY" but got fobbed off with a very lame excuse and a glass of wine each (which we didn't drink) and the offer of an "on the house" coffee or sweet, neither of which we accepted.
We didn't allow this to "sour" our Amsterdam experience but just won't use the restraunt again on any future visits.

“Wonderfully flavorful Mexican food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

So, in addition to friendly staff, Matias restaurant pours excellent strong margaritas. The food is wonderfully flavorful and everything you'd want from a Mexican restaurant! Something for everyone!
