The interior of the restaurant is very stuffy. We managed to get the last spot outside on the veranda and it was a lovely evening watching the boats go by on the canal. The pineapple margarita was good so was the mojito. The food was...More

Wide choice of food for vegetarians, and kids get their own menu with a Mexican scene to colour. Good drink menu too. Best tables are on the first-floor balcony overlooking the canal, or first floor at the front.

Cozy restaurant in the centre of Amsterdam but thanks to its location in a side street not very visible so not very touristy. Broad selection of Mexican dishes and about five different beers. You need to be lucky though because their beers sell out fast.

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some

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.
