    I can see why a reservation is essential as the food is really good and the staff are really attentive. Thank you to the kitchen staff and hosts for a lovely evening

    Really enjoyable dinner, specially for a companion ! The dishes are actually genuinly mexican and not Tex-Mex imitations, as well as the cocktails. The only downside is the relatively high price per dish, however the taste is there and is well worth the price.

    I went there twice with reservation. Both times, i waited 30 min infront of the door. I think they are really disappointing.

    Food was great and big servings. Wish I came with an empty stomach. Would definitely go back again.

    Friendly lady at the bar gave us some housemade frozen margaritas and served us well throughout our stay. I love the fact they have Stella Artois from the draft!

    Always delicious and the real flavour from Mexico. Nice atmosphere and good service is worthy . Original drinks that brings memories from Mexico.

    Great Food! Nice service. The Music a bit too loud for my taste.

    Mediocre food, poor service, loud, tiny, cramped. Tables are jammed together; my friend and I could barely move in our chairs. Cocktails were ok though.

    For as long as I've lived in Amsterdam (>4 years) I have complained there is no good Mexican food here. I followed a tip to come here and honestly it was the best Mexican food I've had outside Mexico. The tacos were, well for starters they were actually tacos, which is pretty rare in Amsterdam! But not only than this, they were really good, best in town by a country mile. The tortilla chips were real tortilla chips, instead of the Doritos you'll get at most places. Nice selection of Mexican beers too.

    A small tacos testaurant but tasty food and the enchilladas are truly excellent. Service however was robotically impersonal, a point of more attention from the pilones staff

    Good restaurant, fair food, and nice environment. I wish it would be easier to call the waiters as usually they don't look at all the tables when walking around the restaurant (even if the place is not that big)

    Pretty good Mexican food, with large portions and excellent service. The staff are warm and friendly, and actually attentive to your needs. A bit expensive, but all dining out in Amsterdam tends to be...

    The quality of the food is getting worse and worse at Los Pilones, something I've noticed in the 14 years I've lived here. It really is a shame. I had the green cheese enchiladas. What slop! Looked like soup, struggled to find the actual corn tortilla. Kids were happy with the choriqueso (of course). Friends had tacos and alambre. Again, what a mishmash. Service was incredibly indifferent, no smile to be seen and no helpful information. The best thing is their drinks.

    My guests enjoyed It although a bit too spicy for them hahaha I like the reastaurant a lot friendly staff. Bit noisy but that’s okay for a Mexican restaurant

    The service was great. Unfortunately, the food did not correspond to the great and cosy ambience. Something was missing. It was a little too bland and not inspiring. I'm sorry to say so
