Came at Sunday for early dinner with a couple of friends. Most of the tables were free but they suggested to sit on the bar. I don't believe that there is any fully booked restaurant in Ams on Sunday.

A bit of a mixed bag this place. The decor and atmosphere are fantastic; really relaxed, chilled out and authentic. Cocktails were equally great, but the food wasn't. Chips and dips were fine, but the actual tacos were small and not that tasty. A bit...More

Very often in Amsterdam any Spanish, Italian or Mexican restaurant is run by North African guys pretending to "speaki the language" I like most people don't like to be deceived. This place is really authentic, great feel to the place buzzing with an eclectic mix...More

Great service and atmosphere here. Still trying to dine on anything but potatoes, we craved a good Mexican meal. We enjoyed the tacos here, many choices and something for everyone. My wife also pronounced the Margarita very good.

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.
