“great all round”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Food was as good as it ever is, great choice, everything prepared& served quickly and with nice service (not so common in amsterdam). Not too pricey considering where it is either.

“Nice Food / Nice Location”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The restaurant is in the heart of Amsterdam with good food and a good vibe. It is hard to find decent Mexican food I Amsterdam, so I highly recommend this place to everyone. A plus.... It is used in the main gay area and right next to popular gay bars. Although the restaurant is not necessarily catered to the gay community. Enjoy!

“...even the cocktails...”
Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

...lost in quality. My first margherita seems to be served without even a hint of alcohol. Really, RC, only this famous Woody Allen quote fits here: "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." --"Yeah, I know; and such small portions."

Still I award this restaurant, an old favourite of mine, two stars, since, well, the food really is edible, the service is acceptable. But such a waste of good money, that, each time I visit Amsterdam, I am surprised that this restaurant managed to survive.

“Excellent Cocktails, great classic and fusion food, with great atmosphere”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Rose's Cantina is great to drink some cocktails and eat some good quality mexican food, i you want classic or even an Amsterdam Mexican Fusion. Has great atmosphere and a really nice back garden for those sunny days.

“Stag party”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

In a good spot surrounded by lots of small pubs. Menu was typical for a mexican which is not my food of choice but the fillet steak was also good!
The guys in our party that were into their mexican food said it was good grub and the pitchers of beer went done well. Lack of choice on the dessert menu and not much atmosphere. Staff were ok but nothing special
