Being a big fan of burritos I was very pleased to find this place close to my home. I have eaten there many times now and have also tried the delivery service. The place is clean, modern and cheerful inside, with seating for maybe 11 maximum. As others have mentioned the frontage is very low key and easy to miss from the street.
As well as the food they have a small fridge with Mexican sodas and beer.

The veggie fajita is a consistently good favourite and is served with a small complimentary side of tortilla chips when eating in. The steak or carnitas versions are also good but sometimes can be very wet (as in liquid dripping out of the bottom while eating). Regardless, I'd be happy to have them any time.

As the previous owner of a small hospitality business (unrelated) I am always happy to recommend a place which is doing it well and Tomatillo definitely are. The food is great and you can tell they are well organized. No better comfort food on a wet grey Amsterdam day :)

Tomatillo's summer schedule is different. While the schedule for Friday, Saturday & Sunday remains 12noon to 10pm, opening is delayed until 4pm the other four days of the week. I milled around for about 90 minutes waiting for them to open then ordered a burrito. It was fair, but while "romaine" was listed as a constituent in the description of the burrito, lettuce and other veggies were
all but absent in the realization of my meal. Most of the burrito was black beans and rice filler - a big disappointment. I would much rather have had a smaller burrito that included fresh lettuce, tomato and onion - all in abundance in Amsterdam in the summer - than a meal of flavored black beans and rice wrapped in a tortilla. Stale corn chips would have been better left out of the meal. There were six people working. Maybe if one of them were in charge of quality control my meal might have been nicer.

We waited longer than expected for this type of food, about half an hour after ordering we received our meal. The meal was good but not the best Mexican I've had. I would still go back and give it another try.
