the best mexican food I've had in Amsterdam so far. The staff is very friendly, we loved the enchiladas verdes in particular. Be careful, the food is very spicy, but they truly are amazing and the prices are very fair.

We were told there wasn’t much good food in Amsterdam before our trip but we only had good experiences. Los Picoles was lovely food, pleasant staff and a happy surprise at the end when the bill came! Also a great atmosphere, we would recommend it!

Food was amazing!! Great tacos, great flavour and good portion sizes! Researched Mexican places before travelling and this one certainly lived up to its billing! Margaritas were great too. Make sure you find time to come try it for yourself!

Hi Claudia. I’m afraid I can’t help you. However, on there website they promote with “7 days a week tacos from 12.00”. I do think they have one menu “all day”. You could call them!

Los Pilones was founded by three Mexican brothers who settled in Amsterdam in 2001. Their concept was to bring the REAL taste of traditional Mexican to Holland, using the best imported Mexican ingredients such as their own brand of salsas, chillis and tequila. No burritos or hard shell tacos can be found on the menu, just simple, authentic Mex-Mex cuisine. After 10 successful years in Amsterdam, the two Los Pilones' restaurants have developed into bright and bustling local hot-spots, attracting tourists and visitors from all over the world.
