So every where I travel I look for a Mexican restaurant, from Paris to Cape Town, Chicago to Des Moines. And most of the time they're okay but this place was one of the best I've had overseas. Mexican brothers apparently own the place and...More

I can define everything as OK. Classic music that gets too loud, exotic food that tastes meh, staff that is commonly kind. It's not a good Mexican if you ask me, and gets really expensive with some dishes. It's alright though if you are just...More

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.

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

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.
