“Excellent Mexican food at a good price”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

I went to this restaurant with a couple of friends on seeing a couple of people sitting outside and seemingly enjoying their meal (other restaurants in the viscinity were sort of deserted). The restaurant was not too big, the ambience was ok and I had some problems with my chair because of thick skirting along the floor. I was actually extremely surprised to see a large number of items on the menu, some of which I had never heard of before. The waitress / server was extremely courteous and helped us with the menu. The food was excellent, well prepared and properly spiced and seasoned. The wine was also quite good. Quantity wise, one portion was more than enough for one person. The final bill was also not too high. Full value for money! Definitely recommended!

“Friendly staff, quick with serving, decent food”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

It isn't the best Mexican restaurant in Amsterdam (that crown goes to Los Pilones), but they have a greater food selection than LP, and the portions were very generous. We had a Groupon, which is the main reason we decided to check this place out, and unlike other places where they treat you like garbage when you come with a Groupon, they were very responsive and friendly. Drinks were decent enough, we got a shot of tequila with our Groupon which I appreciated. All in all, a fine place. If they get a happy hour menu together, I'd be inclined to return.

“Pseudo Mexican”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

A sort of watered down Mexican restaurant.
Waitresses were Greek and Italian,don't know where the chef was from.The area around here has every type of restaurant imaginable and I reckon this place is filling a gap in the market.
We did enjoy our meal, nachos and chicken and steak.
Nothing to rave about.
I see some adverse comments about toilet facilities and while I didn't use them,I wasn't too enamoured with the whiff coming from them ,which I noticed when leaving.

“Can't believe these ratings!!!!!”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

I dont know where to begin. In the first place they needed 30mins to serve the WRONG drinks. When we asked friendly for the right ordered drinks the waitress moaned at us. One of the worst part was when she came with the starters and asked "Who ordered Soup?". "No we ordered meat balls" we said, "ah ... yeah thats here the same" she answered. After this we thought it couldnt get any worse. FAIL. For the main course we got cold fajitas and the main dishes were not serverd all together. Even the guys behind us, were getting seriously pissed off because of the bad service. They even had to get their own drinks at the bar.

To make it short: We went there because of the excellent ratings, but it was a nightmare. We are quite sure they wrote the ratings themselves, mhhh maybe thats why they needed so long to serve our food!!!

Worst choice ever!!!! We paid 200 euro for 5 people ....
