What can I say. Lovely staff, great authentic Mexican food and good selection of tequila and mezcal!  I try to visit this bar at least once a month. Try their marca negra mezcal, delicious!

Everyone in the family found something they enjoyed and the waiter had a good recommendation for my spice adverse daughter. We liked the Chipotle sause so much we bought a bottle to take home. The house margarita, on the rock with no salt, was good....More

If you are looking for the same old Mexican then this place is not really for you. The menu and the food are not normal fare although there are some standard favorites available like Nachos but all come with a los pilones twist. Enjoy.

I came with two friends. I had the chicken enchiladas which were swimming in peanut soup. It was vile. Couldn’t finish it. Started throwing up the next day. Worst Mexican I’ve ever had. The tables are very very close together and the music is turned...More

Food is good. And the service outstanding. Careful if you order the "mole" sauce, but the manager was kind enough to offer us compensation since we didn't eat the dish. Great service !

The food here is always pretty good. The tortillas with a nice choice of cheese/meat to fill them is a solid choice. Location is great and atmosphere is also, especially in the cozy booths

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Los Pilones was established in 2001 by three Mexican brothers who aimed to bring the REAL taste of Mexico to Holland. Here you will find only traditional Mexican favourites, not burritos or hard shell tacos, just simple Mex-Mex cuisine and a bright and lively atmosphere unmatched anywhere else in Amsterdam.
