I brought several colleagues here last week as they fancied Mexican. I've been several times in the past and was never disappointed. This time was no different and everyone enjoyed their dinner. Nice atmosphere here too. Good Mexican restaurants are few and far between in...More

But this was such a disappointment and overpriced even for good food (which it was not). Disinterested staff who were lost in their phones and didn't ask how it was when we went to the bar to pay. We left our mains as they were...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

I come here mostly for the margaritas, they're great, you get a nice big glass and a small jug! Not that big of a fan of the food, some of the botanas are nice, but I found the enchiladas verdes rather disappointing...

Centrally located a very nice Mexican restaurant with great quality food. We loved the food and the way, restaurant is decorated with paintings and colours. It's beautiful inside and food is awesome, you are looking for Mexican food then this is the place to be.

Being lovers of Mexican food we decided to give this restaurant a try. Unfortunately it didn't live up to our expectations. Service was very slow and inattentive despite there being only 2 other tables of couples present. We asked for more nachos when ordering our...More

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.
